Nanotechnology vs Biomedical vs Chemical Engineering at Waterloo

Hello, I am going to be starting university next September. Bio and Chem are my areas of interest but I'm choosing to pursue Engineering since I believe the degree will be more well-rounded and help me apply what I learn. I have heard that Nano, Biomed, and Chem Engineering are three programs that incorporate Bio and Chem well. Waterloo is one of the schools I am going to apply to but since I can only apply to one of these three engineering programs, I need some advice to help me make my decision. I have also heard that Chemical Engineering doesn't involve a lot of Chemistry and all of this is making it hard for me to decide. If anyone is studying in any of these three streams at Waterloo, I would really appreciate your input on what you learn and which subjects are in focus. Would you recommend going into that field? What does the program look like, will you have options to branch into a specific focus in say 2nd or 3rd year? Any and all help, advice, and information is appreciated, thank you!!

I think it's important for you to decide what you want to do first. As for me, the direction of engineering can give you more prospects and easier chances of getting a good position. But it matters if your soul is in this business. Now I saw a lot of projects and services on the site where they look for developments and research in these areas
