    Programs Would Engineering Physics be a good major for what I want to do?

    Hello everyone! This is my first post here, so I'm still figuring everything out. I am a Junior in Highschool, so soon it will be time for me to apply to colleges. Because of my high school, I have direct access to the top private university in Mexico, however, they do not offer Physics as a...

    Studying Good resources to help with hard physics classes?

    I'm having quite a bit of difficulty in my college's intro honors, calc-based physics class. I want to find some good resources, either online or text, to assist with learning the material. The issue I'm having is that most resources I find are either not in depth enough, or they're just as...

    Programs Engineering Physics programs without Engineering

    Is anyone aware of a liberal arts college (or other such school) that offers Engineering Physics without having a full-blown Engineering program? I'm a physics professor at a small school and we're investigating the feasibility of adding such a program ourselves; it would be useful to see some...

    Programs Would this Engineering Physics degree be better than a degree in physics?

    I have been stuck between physics and engineering for a while. Someone recommended that I major in engineering physics, as the school I want to transfer to has like the 4th best EP program in the US. I pretty much take all of the physics classes physics majors need (except for labs and...

    Engineering What Kind of jobs are Engineering Physicists currently in?

    Hello All, I'ma recently graduated physicist engineer (or physical engineer, I'm not sure how to say it in English) from Colombia, right now I'm looking for a job in order to save some money for my master degree and I would like to know the experiences of more experimented physicist engineers...

    Help: Physics vs Engineering Physics vs EE / ME

    I'm a final year high school student trying to figure out what he wants to study in university. I have decided on an applied math double major with one of the above. My dilemma is between deciding to purse the passion I have for theoretical/ pure physics or an applied science as I would really...

    What is the amplitude of the electric field (laser reflection)

    Problem we are looking at :A laser beam has diameter 1.30 mm . The beam exerts a force of 3.7×10−9 N on a totally reflecting surface. What is the amplitude of the electric field of the electromagnetic radiation in this beam? (Emax) Relevant Formulas...etc.: I have the formula...

    Admissions Transfering from CC, got a C in calc2. Am I screwed?

    I want to major in computer and electrical engineering physics. I don't actually know much about the specifics, but I've been an electrical engineering hobbyist since high school, I built my own desktop computer and enjoy programing in C++, and I study some physics in my free time. All I know is...

    I'm nothing without my calculator...

    So i graduated with good gpa in a civil engineering program in a school in Québec. Problem is, at that said school, programmable calculators were allowed and we abused it. Every single integrals or derivatives or complex number manipulation was solved by it and now i transfered to another...

    Programs What is the best master's degree?

    Hi, I have my bachelor degree in engineering physics, laser and optics concentration. I want to enroll for master degree, and I want to have a job in business companies, not research lab or university. So what are the best choices for master (is it okay for universities to accept a student with...

    Engineering Engineering career after MSc applied physics

    I have a MSc in engineering physics / applied physics, but i decided to not continue with a PhD, and instead try out my luck as an engineer in the industry. I'm currently working with structural analysis, but I feel somewhat overqualified for most of the work I do, so I feel like switching to...

    Physics experiments for undergraduates

    I am a 1st year undergraduate student. I am in need of some fascinating applied physics/ engineering physics projects that two 1st year undergraduates can complete in about 10 working hours, and as such not very difficult. We would like a project that we could build inexpensively, and calculate...

    Engineering kinematics

    i have found out the second answer of the PHYSICS problem but unable to solve the first part.i tried all possible ways.:-( ---------------------------------------------- a test projectile is fired horizontally in to a viscous liquid with a velocity Vo . The retarding force is proportional to the...

    Engineering physics

    I am, currently, a senior in high school. I am interested in science and particularly in physics. So, I, naturally, want to major in physics when I go to University. But I'm not sure if I want to be a physicist when i grow up and I have also heard about how getting into academia is very hard and...

    Engineering at Western or Mac (McGill)

    I am looking to apply to western for engineering ( go into mechatronics) and do a concurrent engineering and physics degree. Basically what that is, is a regular 4 year degree with a 5th year of pure physics. You then receive a bachelor of engineering and a physics major. I am also looking at...

    Should I Also Study Math? Also panic attack and "woe is me"

    Hello Physics Forums. So I haven't been on here for a very long time, so hello again. I am currently a first year at a university in Canada and am to declare my specialization in the coming months. I came into university expecting I'd want to do a degree in physics and astronomy, but over the...

    Physics vs CE vs CS vs Physics

    Hi, Im currently finishing high school and I would appreciate some help. I would like to study physics, however I´m not sure. Other curses like Computer Engineering, Computer Science or Engineering Physics could another possibility. I have always loved science, especially physics and chemistry...

    Applied mechanics vs. engineering physics

    Hello! I am currently doing my first year in a mechanical engineering degree(which after a few years branches off to applied mechanics), which is a 5 year integrated master's. Since before i applied, I have been uncertain about which study I really want to/should do, and that uncertainty still...

    Engineering Aerospace engineering or Engineering physics for the Space Industry?

    Hi everyone, I'm currently finishing my bachelor's degree in engineering physics (integrated master´s) and wondering what I should pursue on my master's degree and if I should move from my current path. My main objective is to work in the space industry (quite vague I imagine). Would it be...
