What majors to pursue for energy/solar power job?
I'm looking for different majors to pursue for college and, for fun, I decided to stray away from the ordinary boring ones. I figured solar/energy-saving power is probably going to become a big business, but what majors are there to pursue? I'd just like some ideas, but if I may ask try to keep it less general. (For example, please don't simply say "the sciences" unless you may be able to briefly explain a branch of science in particular!)

Many universities offer solar engineering classes for mechanical engineers. The design of hot water and wind power systems deal with the sciences that they have studied. Photovoltaic systems lean more towards the electrical engineering side of engineering.
