If you have a degree in mechanical engineering, can you do an M.A in quantum physics? is it about your previous certificate? or simply your ability to handle the following field?

oh ok, but in your opinion, would mechanical engineering aid you with any background that will benefit you for quantum physics?

Other than the possibility of having similar math in some aspects, no.
