Question 【HELP】Job prospect for different engis?

Hi, I have been struggling about which engi to apply all these days.

In the past, I thought I was most interested in chem engi. But then after some reading abt what chem engineers really do (like watching the machines and also the shifts), I'm not so sure now.

I read quite a lot posts in this forum and most of you said choose the course that one loves best. But for me I am actually quite ok with all the courses, no specific preference, except a bit worried abt the computer part as I never learnt any C+/C++. I found chemistry and physics both quite interesting in JC and I am also ok with my maths. So it's hard to make up my mind to any course.

thus, i would like to ask, which engineering course generally has a better job prospect. I understand that we need to study hard and get a decent grade if we want a decent job. (so i am just asking abt in general, perhaps which one or ones are better)

thx in advance for any suggestion.

I think ISE at NUS is interesting if you like numbers more than sciences.

And it is easy to switch to other specialization after the first year.

but I heard ISE is more abt "paper work"? like all the projects, plans, seems to be rather humanity/business-course inclined than science course. I don't like to write a lot and that is my major con against ISE...

thx for your suggestion anyway
