I am currently in the 2nd year of an Aerospace Engineering BSc, but have become so disappointed with the study that I am considering quitting and doing what I had strongly considered two years ago, physics. It is mainly the engineering mentality that bothered me, i.e. how do we apply it, how it works is irrelevant beyond basics. This was less noticable in the first year due to more math subjects, but now that they have all have to make room for more engineering subjects, it has began to bother me quite a lot, to an extent that I have very little motivation to study for my exams, and have not bothered with classes at all the last few months. My question now is whether it would be worthwhile to continue for another year and a half to finish my BSc. From what I've read here physics appears to be a fairly "fragile" degree in a sense that jobs are scarce and competitive. I guess it also depend on what you would want to do. In any case I would want to do some sort of research, definitely no finance or a random job for which any scientific BSc will suffice. Will I be more hireable with an additional degree? The only thing positive about next year is that I would be able to do a physics minor, which offers an introduction to basically everything, and takes about 6 months; meaning I only need to worry about engineering in the six following months. But then I do lose a year, another 8000 euro and I will be 22 when I start with physics. I guess my fear is that I will end up having a really difficult time of finding a proper job, or being stuck with a crappy one forever. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
