Hi Everyone, I passed out of high school this year,as a Science student and so I had to make a decision between taking up an engineering course and a general degree. I was always interested in Physics and so I left myself only two options- Physics Honours and Engineering. When I was in high school,I did a few extra things in physics,like relativity,and now,since we are having hlidays in college,I'm reading Richard Feynman's 'QED'. I don't think we even have QED in our Engineering course! I fear that I might have to miss out on all these wonderful aspects of Physics if I continue with my Engineering course. So,deep inside,I always wanted to do Physics Honours but my parents said I might have to struggle very hard to establish myself if I took up Physics Honours (since there are so many people doing this course),so they more or less forced me to take up Engineering. I am doing the first year of my Mechanical Engineering Course currently. However,I am determined to take up research in Physics after my B.Tech degree--but I am not sure if this is even possible. It would be a waste of time if I did a BSc degree after all these four years of engineering--in that case,what should I do? Is it possible to do a MSc after B. Tech? You see,I'm absolutely clueless, so please tell me the options I have and if it was a big mistake for me to have taken up Engineering in the first place.
