Ok the title doesn't communicate my question very well. I'm striving to one day earn a degree in Chemical engineering, although cat food and plastic aren't really what I prefer to do for field work. I'm more interested in development of alternate energy advancements, and better fuel/gas, electrical efficiency from an atomic level to industrial transformers. Yes, i haven't left out the possibility of mechanical engineering, or electrical engineering, but i have this desire for improving the way energy is used, not wasting it. On another note, i feel as the technology is here, oil companies simply buy out the ideas and rarely are they given publicly. Haha so, fuel and gas a good option?
