    Currently within 1st year chemical engineering and considering what modules to take within the future that will define my career path. My main question is what field within chemical engineering is projected to have the most money within the industry in the future? Or if that is even known/predicted? Currently interested within petroleum engineering but thinking the pharmaceuticals might spike within the future.

    Your first mistake is assuming that the modules you study at university will make a difference to your career path.

    Your second mistake is choosing courses based on the money aspect.
