Accreditation is important in engineering majors. Double-check whether each of the engineering majors are ABET accredited.
In response to your comment about thermal engineering, majors are often described in stereotypical ways. My major, civil engineering, is often said to be all about building bridges, dams and sewers. In reality, the field is humongous. Many people work in the field doing things related to bridges, dams and sewers but many work in the field doing things not related to any of those.
Materials science and engineering is a field that I think is incredibly cool and relevant. You learn about the microscopic structure of things, and not necessarily just solids. It's applicable to just about anything that is cool or mundane, high-tech or low-tech. The movement toward sustainability in our society is doing a lot to boost demand for new materials and new ways to use old materials. Space flight moving into the private sector could do the same in the near future.
When do you need to choose or declare your major?
