    Physics or Computer Science?

    Then i guess you have your career answer here. bu then dont be so rigid, your choices may change over the period. anyway, if you are confused between physics and cs the i think you should go over the subjects they teach and a familiarize yourself with both. and chose what you like best.

    Physics or Computer Science?

    It doesnt necessarily mean that. it depends on a lot of factors, from where u got ur degree, ur resume and a lot of other things. the thing is, at this point you should ask your self what u want to see yourself doing 40 years down the line? is it the money or work satisfaction?

    Physics or Computer Science?

    It takes 5 years. and its not exactly without masters. masters degree come along the way. so the first one or two year is course work and the last 3 years for research. as it is well-known R&D jobs dont pay as well as managerial jobs unless you are very experienced and at a very high position...

    Physics or Computer Science?

    Thats perfectly possible. in fact you can directly get into a PhD program without doing masters first. the same is the case for physics.

    Physics or Computer Science?

    Hey, If you decide to do integrated MSc from IIT and maintain good grades then you will get into one of the top US university for PhD. And a CS degree would help you find a great job just after your undergrad studies. Although both the fields could lead you to research, I would like to...

    Engineering PhD in physics after engineering career?

    theres no separate application for theory programs. n fact, you can write in your statement of purpose which field interests you and coincides with your background, but it is only after spending 2 yrs in the phd program that you actually decide your field. meanwhile, summer internships, RAs, TAs...

    Engineering PhD in physics after engineering career?

    Well, as you it turns out, i and tanuj had applied together. And we have very similar profiles, mainly because all of our projects are together. We still cant understand why i got chosen over him. i am interested in experimental particle physics, but as i have not had any research experience, i...

    Engineering PhD in physics after engineering career?

    hey, I am an electronics engineer from India. and if this might help, i decided to change to physics and applied to Us universities and got two admits! it is possible. my undergrad college was very rigid and didnt allow any courses in physics. I used to go to the community science center and...

    Schools Reagrding Transfer to another grad school

    I have heard this is extremely rare. i had even mailed schools like Stanford asking about transfers, and they said they absolutely did not encourage transfers. i dont have much physics background, as i am an engineering student so i guess if ido get a transfer around 3rd sem, i wont mind taking...

    Schools Reagrding Transfer to another grad school

    Hello, I have accepted an admit for fall 2008 at a certain university for phd in physics. even though this is a fairly good university, it was not my first choice (I didnt get admitted to my first choice). My problem was that i did not have phsyics gre score and i was solely admitted based on...
