    Hi, I am a first year Natural science student and studied physics, chemistry, materials science and maths B.
    I have just done my exams and although my results are not here yet i believe my have achieved a 2nd. I have been thinking of doing Chemical Engineering but not sure if it is an appropriate thing to do. if I stay with Natural science, i will probably do double physics and maths.
    Can anyone please give some ups and downs about chemical engineering and how easy it would be to get a job at the end of the degree with either options?

    Thank you a lot in advance, any help would be massively appreciated.

    Someone earlier had a similar question. I'd reiterate that Chemical Engineering is a slightly less broad education. It would be easier to get a job with Chemical Engineering IF you want to do it as a career since it's an in-demand field. Chemical Engineers are also well-paid. However, if you took Chemical Engineering your options for further research would probably be less interesting. And for jobs other than Engineering, I'd say a Physics degree would be at the same playing field or slightly better.

    if you want to be a chemical engineer do chemical engineering, if you dont then dont do chemical engineering, outside of the engineering industry both will allow entrance to similar careers
