    If you are serious then you should go for an advanced degree in chemistry. A Phd if possible.

    .

    Chemical engineering is more related to the industrial side of chemistry and the use of chemical processes to produce a given product.

    To become an Analytical Chemist you should major in Chemistry.

  • A chemistry degree is very general. I feel like it's more of an undergraduate thing and chemical engineering is where you would specialize.

    Personally I think chemical engineering is better

    The big difference between chemistry and chemical engineering has to do with originality and scale. Chemists are more likely to develop novel materials and processes, while chemical engineers are more likely to take these materials and processes and make them larger or more efficient. Which better suits you??

      my development teams are about 1/3 ChE's, 1/5 chemists and the rest other engineers.
