In light of all of the problems that seem to be arising from the preciousness of "fossil fuels" nowadays, I have been partly considering a career or at least a bit of study that would help me to maybe even possibly engineer an efficient and realistic "biofuel" (Like the sort made from cooking grease or something else common and renewable). Under what field of study would be most practical to go under if I wanted to do something like this? Frankly, I'm totally clueless. Would it simply be just Chemistry, or what? If anyone knows or has a suggestion, please post. I'm pretty much undecided as to what I truly want to concentrate on in college, but there's a possibility it could be this.

By the way, I know I will now have 2 threads of mine at the very top of the board, but I have a lot of questions these days that I'd like answered.

if you are female, smith college has just started an engineering program (the first all-female class of engineers EVER in the US graduated this may) and they have a strong focus on environmental responsibility in all areas of engineering.

Aren't you going to the University of Kentucky?

"The University of Kentucky's Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering is committed to excellence. Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering provides an essential link between the biological sciences and the engineering profession. This linkage is necessary for the development of food and fiber production and processing systems which preserve our natural resource base."

You could also check out the Environmental Engineering Department.

( I work in a related field- so this caught my eye.)
