Prerequisites for work in energetics

  1. Jan 17, 2009 #1
    I am a 1st year physics student at the University of Edinburgh, who's also taking chemical engineering as an outside course. I am intersted in being involved in the energetics industry after gradutation.
    Could someone provide insight as to (1) what type of courses should I choose in physics and engineering; (2) should I do a degree in physics or engineering (I have the option of transferring); (3) will a master's be enough and will a PhD benefit me in some way.

    Obviously it tepends a lot on the particular type of energetics: something established as petroleum engineering or something alternative as renewables of something up-and-coming as thermonuclear synthesis (maybe).

    I'm open to all of these.
