In need of some serious advising. I'm a math major at the UI-Chicago. I have been trying to decide what I could add as a second degree to help improve my chances of getting into a decent graduate engineering program. You say it depends on the field? I figured. The thing is, I'm interested in these fields of engineering in order of importance: chemical, materials, and environmental. I'm sure adding a second degree in chem. would help but is it enough? Would physics be the more practical path while taking a few chem courses on the side? Theoretically I want the second degree to be versatile enough to help me into engineering, or possibly other related geo-studies. Taking into account my math background many people may say physics, but truly I want whatever is going to give me the better edge. One thing I can say is that I have great interest in both (which makes this hard), pushing me to draw more logical conclusions on how far one will get me, over the other. I'm in need of suggestions. What's more practical? Is chemistry more useful in understanding the natural world, or would you say physics? What will help me get ahead of the curve when I apply to graduate studies? Major/minor/specific courses that one could suggest? Also, how math intensive are the upper level chemistry courses? What would be a good few courses in mathematics to help prepare me for graduate engineering/physical sciences... questions questions questions. I appreciate whatever anyone can offer.
