A month ago I started a MSc Chemical Engineering program at Norway's technical university.. http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/mtkj I liked chemistry and math from high school, but I loved physics. I wanted to study physics, but I was nervous that if I did, i'd be unable to get B average or more grades, and thus I would fail to find a proper job. So in the end, I decided to study chemical engineering because I thought it was a nice mix of chemistry, (thermo)physics and math. In addition it's extremely easy to get a good job after an NTNU engineering degree. However, now that I've gotten a taste for ChemE, and scoured through the list of subjects, it seems that it's almost half chemistry for the first 3 years... And the chemistry isn't much fun either. I'm thinking about switching over to physics. Since my counsellor is near useless, I want to ask you guys: a) How much physics is there really in ChemE and in physical chemistry? b) Is it really so hard to find a job after a physics-degree? everyone I talk to say it's impossible to get a relevant job other than teaching. c) All in all, if I really like physics, should I switch this year? Or should I stick with ChemE for a year, and then if I don't like it start on a degree in physics?
