I want to work on battery technology. What field does this best fall under?

  1. Jun 5, 2012 #1
    So far I've been studying chemical engineering and it is mostly applicable. I'm not sure which classes I should be taking, though, and whether ChemE is even the best program to study within.

    Ideas?

    Solid state/condensed matter physics should definitely be helpful.

    I will try and take these courses. I think I'll ask a professor which classes I should take.

    Do you think the degree program I choose will matter? Or for graduate school? As in, engineering vs. mat sci vs. physics vs. ???
