    Hi , which of these two courses would be a better choice for the future in terms of prospects, excitement and potential for advancement to higher levels ?
    Both seem good choices but it's hard to massively favour one over the other..

    I would find chemical engineering extremely boring. And I'm sure many chemical engineers would find medicine utterly dull :awesome:

    It's a completely subjective question - do you find the prospect of treating and caring for people exciting? If so, then you're not going to get that with a career in engineering. Do you find the idea of using maths everyday and working in industry absolutely fascinating? If so, then medicine probably isn't for you.

    You're literally comparing apples and oranges. Think a bit more about what you want from your job (not in vague terms like "excitement" - both engineering and medicine have the potential to be exciting depending on your personality), but more in terms of what you actually want to be doing day to day, how long you want to train, what sort of hours you want to work, whether you want to work mostly with the public or not, etc. Arranging some work experience in both fields would be very useful in helping you gain some more insights.
