# Looking to change my field!Am I too late?

 P: 16 Hi I am a forum member from two years.I never really post anything but I do check out the discussions at the forums.I am really interested in doing physics.I am not saying this by watching Brian Greene or Michio Kaku. I have a passion for physics.There are only two things in my life that I can do for entire day without any hesitation.They are physics and computer stuff. The problem is that I am from India and like most of the students here I took a Engineering Degree in Electronics and Communication.But I have watched all the Walter Lewin Lectures from MIT,Classical and Quantum Mechanics courses from Prof. Balakrishnan,basic physics courses from Shankar and I really enjoyed them. I am in the final year of completing my Under-Graduation but I really wanna do Physics.I have already read So-you-wanna-become-a-physicist thread.I still did not decide about going for a Phd,but I want to do Physics especially Particle Physics.I have already searched through forums but I could not find any answer. I spent already four years to get an Engineering Degree!Am I too late to change my field to physics and What job opportunities can I expect after completing my masters in Physics?Sorry if my English does not sound good.
 P: 1,084 To have any chance of working AS A PHYSICIST, you really need a Ph.D. in Physics. With an M.S. in Physics, there are opportunities to work as an engineer or a programmer, assuming you have developed the necessary skills along the way.

I want to do a Phd but right now I am just focussing on my Masters.I am already 22.So,I expect 2-3 years for masters and then maybe Phd. Am I too late to change my field?I don't want to end up my life unsuccessful after completing my masters.

 P: 1,084 Looking to change my field!Am I too late? I got my M.S. in physics at 48. I think you'll manage well enough at 22.
 P: 830 Look into those schools: http://www.physicsgre.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2860 http://portal.mytum.de/studium/studi...edirection=yes Three more physics programs here: https://www.elitenetzwerk.bayern.de/...-of-study/?L=2 E-mail the individual universities and see if you'd be eligible with your degree. Look into doing an M.Sc in India as well.

I think thats really great.How do you manage to get a job?Thanks for the response!
Edit:Just looked up your profile. You did a Phd. in Computer Science first.
