What country are you in?
Isn't there a fair bit of overlap between engineering and the sciences though? Keep in mind I don't really know **** about how they work currently.
In kiwiland it's pretty hard to know if you like your degree in first year because first year papers are pretty crap and are usually the filler ones like your stats and/or maths paper you need, and your communications paper you need etc.
What subjects do you like learning at the moment?
I make fun of engineers but it's a great profession which is usually in good demand as all technical professions tend to be. However, you won't be working at the scientific 'edge' if that's what suits you. Generally very few people get a PhD in engineering (those who do want to work at the 'edge', but a different sort) whereas a PhD is pretty much a pre-requisite to be able to do anything independently in science (whether in industry or academia).
However, your first job should be to figure out what subjects you enjoy learning.
Put the following in order of your enjoyment (or ability): Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology. Also how far have you gotten in each?
BTW Flem, how's your Geo going? Are you in third year?
