Major for thermal energy?

  1. Apr 12, 2012 #1
    My apologies for making my first post a question but I was wondering if anyone could suggest an engineering degree which would be most suitable for a career with energy, specifically thermal energy and external combustion systems. I was technically a junior and had to take an session off because I did not declare my major.
    Apart from the typical 2-3 discipline specific engineering courses, I have completed all math, chemistry, physics, and computer science courses required for every engineering program offered at my school (University of Washington - Seattle). Specifically, I've been leaning towards electrical or chemical engineering and am open to minor suggestions. I look forward to your opinions and thank you in advance.

    Mechanical seems like the best-fit major for your interests.
