    Chemical engineering vs Data science and engineering

    Hi
    ive recently met the requirements to start study at a top university in my country and i have to choose a deegre icant decide between Chemical engineering and Data science and engineering.I will elaborate on the 2:

    Chemical engineering - ive studied some chemistry but i dont want a degree in pure chemistry since i want to be an engineer and the program of Chemical engineering seems really interesting and the degree has some science in it,the problem is maybe the job prospect in my country is not that wide for chemical engineers its only in chemical factories or plants ,Refinery maybe in pharma and chip intustry.

    Data science and engineering - its a new program at the university ,it includes alot of math which i like ,i enjoyed math and data scientist only uses programming as a tool ,its seems like a good degree to apply math and engineering tools also the jobs are mostly in hi tech which include high salaries and good conditions only problem the degree doesnt have science courses at all which is kinda turn down for me.

    ill be really glad to hear some advise maybe from people in either field ,Thanks in advance.

    Data Science and Engineering will probably have more future upside potential. Big Data and everything related to it is pretty hot right now and we finally have the storage capacity and computing capacity available now to do it at a reasonable price.

    Data science on avg. Prob makes more money

    But chemical seems wayy broader with more opportunities. Chemistry = as long as theres matter = chemistry

    My guess is top chemical makes more
    Data pays better on avg due to being business oriented

    Chemical engineering, hands down.

    Big pharma profits are the biggest on the planet. With more clientele than tech firms. Don't be stupid OP

    Going to school to finish ChemE BS and work as data scientist for pharmaceutical rn. I think most of our senior guys have CS or Engineering backgrounds with masters in some form of analytics.
    If you want to do ChemE because you like chemistry, then it's not the right move.

    The actual ChemE courses are mostly thermo and physics, very little chemistry outside of maybe reaction engineering. There isn't extensive programming required either, our curriculum is 80% Excel/VBA which is pretty reflective of actual industry.

    You might find Electrical more attractive given your preferences.
