Hello, Looking for some guidance for my son. He will be a senior in high school in the fall and will be applying to university programs in Ontario, Canada. He is leaning towards studying chemistry and/or physics. We (his parents) absolutely want him to follow his passions, but of course are concerned about the employment prospects of a theoretical science degree. One potential area of study that is on his radar is materials science/nanotechnology as it seems to have more practical applications (and he is not fond of Biology so not leaning towards biotech or pharmacy). There are several schools here that offer degrees in this area, some as a B.Sc. in the faculty of science (usually a joint offering from the faculties of chemistry and physics) and some as a B.Eng/BASc. through the faculty of Engineering. From a career perspective can anyone provide any insight as to whether one degree or the other is more employable? Am I correct in believing that if he chooses to follow the B.Sc. route that he most likely will require at least an M.Sc. or MASc. in a related field to have any truly viable job prospects vs a B.Eng. with the qualifying work requirements for a P.Eng?
