Hello guys, I live in Brazil and I'm currently in my first year of EE. As you all might already know, here in Brazil, scientists, such as mathematicians and physicists, are very underestimated. Usually, if you are good at math and physics, you are strongly encouraged to do engineering, because that's what gives more money over here. And there is the thing that have been bothering me for some time... I've always been very good at math and physics, and even more than that, I always was interested in learning this specific subjects more deeply. When I was in high school, it was very frustrating because seemed like nobody else was like that. When got to engineering I thought I would find more people like me, whom math and physics are the biggest passion on their lives. But instead, the things that I've been hearing are ''How do you know all that stuff?'', ''You like it way too much!'' and such. So in my head, I'm quite in doubt if I am in the place that I really should be... I don't want to do something just because it gives more money, but because I'm passionate about it. There exists the possibility to take an extra year and graduate in physics after completing engineering, so I was thinking to do that, instead of straight switching... I really feel the need to learn things with a theoretical approach, but I can just picture me in the future working as an engineer, and not only that, I don't want to be a teacher in anyway. My biggest dream is to work with research. So what do you guys think I should do?
