Engineering Physics and the environment.
 
A pretty short question:
How capable of designing ecological soultions for the industry would i be if i graduated in Engineering Physics?

I feel that because of the depth of the few Physics and engineering subjects it has, I might lack skills when designing engines and systems which are innovating and sustainable.

(I DO NOT want to study ambiental engineering, but i might study mechanic-electric engineering)

Re: Engineering Physics and the environment.
 
from what I've been told, the limiting factor of clean energy technologies is marketing and how you sell your product to business and political oligarchs, not really the technology; the technology is mostly mechanical engineering from what I know, excluding photovoltaics.

i have little experience in this field so your mileage may vary.

Re: Engineering Physics and the environment.
 
Thanks, but rather, i was asking if the skill acquired during Eng. Physics are enough to design such ecofriendly solutions.
