What major is perfect to become an energy engineer?
I am about to enter to college, and would need to know which major is great for to become an energy engineer, or someone that is within the renewable energy sector. Some people say mechanical engineering, and others say environmental engineering, or electrical engineering, and I would need to know which is best?
If you are attracted to large energy plants (coal or gas power plants, gas turbines, hydroelectric generators), then mechanical engineering q could the be the Field to study. If you are interested in electrical transmission (large powerlines and switch stations-Bonneville Power Authority; wind energy), then electrical engineering would be a good fit. Nuclear energy (may) be making a comeback. If this appeals to you, then try nuclear engineering.
Good Luck, Pete Sturtevant
