First-year engineering student facing dilemma


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a first-year engineering graduate student. I soon need to decide between the following two difficult options.

A: I've been doing research with my current advisor. As of now there is no research fund here, but I can TA his course and apply for departmental fellowship. My advisor is applying for grants, but the funding situation is uncertain.  

B: A medical doctor, a collaborator of my engineering advisor, is interested in funding me given I work at his lab helping the collaboration and also conduct animal/human experiments. The problem is I do not have any enthusiasm about these experiments nor his research area.   

I feel like I am forced to choose between funding and research interest if I want to stick with my current advisor. May I get some advice?
