    Hello! I'm an electrical engineer and a physicist

    Welcome to the forums!

    A little help, please.

    I don't know who told you that "physics would get me nowhere, and that I'd [you] have to go after engineering if I really wanted to work". As far as I know, there are jobs available in physics, especially if you're looking to go into industry rather than academia. Although I think the job market...

    Please allow non-members to hide online status

    In my opinion, hiding online status should still remain a privilege for gold members. However, it would be nice to get rid of the "Last seen" feature all together.

    Should I go with physics or engineering?

    You aren't expected to choose which field of physics you'll work in right now. Since you enjoy physics, you probably should apply to universities with physics as your prospective major. Generally, you can take courses in physics/engineering and then decide which one you enjoy more. It usually...

    Should I go with physics or engineering?

    There are numerous fields other than engineering where you can earn a lot of money, although that should certainly not be your main criteria for choosing a profession. I'd advise you to go with what you enjoy more.

    Calculus for physicists at MIT

    I believe that most physics majors take 18.01 (while some more mathematically inclined people take 18.014). However, I believe a lot of people get advanced standing credit for that course.

    Can Someone "Rank" Math Course Progression?

    I recommend you take a look at MIT OCW, but generally it is like: Single variable Calculus -> Multivariable Calculus -> Differential Equations (ODEs) -> Real Analysis -> Complex Analysis...

    Programs Double Major Physics/Math vs. Physics Major/Minor in CS

    1. Not too much. You will have to learn programming and some computational software (like Mathematica) but you won't need any computer science specifics like complex algorithms, networks etc. 2. I don't think it is too difficult for math/physics to go into the software engineering field, so...

    Programs Is it possible to pursue a career in nuclear physics without getting a degree?

    If you're in your final year of college, aren't you almost done with your BA already?
