Question by Thunderforce: will majoring in biomedical engineering still allow me to work on alternative energy technologies?
I am a freshman undergraduate majoring in biomedical engineering. I’d like to know if i can stay in this major and still work on alternative energy technologies. I’m doing BME because i want to help people but i’d also like to be involved in green technology. I’m actually thinking of switching majors to either electrical or mechanical engineering. but i’d like some opinions from people to better help with my decision. Please leave me some good feedback and no wise remarks. thank you.

It’s generally a mistake to take Biomedical Engineering at the undergrad level. There aren’t enough jobs at the Bachelor’s level, and many Biomed Engng grads have to take jobs for which they are not optimally suited.
Better you take good basic Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering (or Engineering Physics) in undergrad, then do the Green/BioMed stuff in grad school.
