What type of engineer should I become?

I like math and chemistry and have done well in both thus far, so I was thinking of becoming an engineer, but what type should I become? I want my career to be interesting, and I don't think I want to work with architecture or robotics. Should I even become an engineer? Thanks. Also, what courses of study should I pursue?

As you mention that you like math and chemistry, but don't like architecture or robotics, that pretty much leave materials engineering. Though, you will have to speak with architects, and therefore have at least a basic knowledge of their field.

In college your first year or two will be general engineering courses, and you will get a class in electrical, civil, mechanical, chemical, materials, industrial, along with general courses. So find something you like.
