A creative career that is different every day

Hello, I will be entering university next year, however I am still very confused regarding what major i should study. Math has always been my favorite subject, however i also love all the sciences. I want to study something that requires creativity , as i believe i am very creative ( I do creative birthday cards and school projects) in addition i want to find a job later on that requires you to do something new everyday, not a routine. Therefore from your experience and knowledge do you think i should purse industrial engineering, genetic engineering, advertisement, marketing, or something else? Thank you for your time.

    Hi Noor,

    Its really good to know that you enjoy mathematics so I would highly recommend you opting for Industrial engineering.  This field of study will give you an opportunity to be very creative as you will need to come up with innovative ideas to improve processes across big and small organizations which would have a direct impact on the people and society at large. You can combine your Industrial engineering major with a minor in Marketing and the combination of these two would be a sure shot path towards finding a good job as according to bureau to Labor Statistics Industrial engineers are in high demand across US. With the combination of these two fields you will have an ample opportunity to select a variety of fields like from healthcare, manufacturing to sales and management. You will have a lot of options available for you once you graduate and this is only possible for those who major in Industrial engineering. Let me know if you need more information about Industrial engineering in general. Hope this was helpful. Thanks.

    Hi Noor,
    I agree with Aditi's recommendation given the self-profile you described in your question especially if you are looking at non-routine type of work. I am hoping by now you have figured out what you really want to study. Good luck in your pursuits.
