I've recently returned to school and am thinking about majoring in ChemE (heard it was very high-paying and the curriculum looks interesting) but, after surfing the web some, I've come across some disturbing stuff. I've been reading that no one wants to hire older engineers. This is very concerning to me, as I'll be in my mid-fourties by the time I finish my degree. Is it a waste of time for older guys like me to to get an engineering degree? Should I consider something else?
