Alternative master's degree with a bachelor in physics

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm in my second year of my physics bachelor's (in the Netherlands) and my average score is about an 8.5. I like physics, but... I've already realized that an academic career in physics is not at all what i want to persue.
(eg. no theoretical physics/experimental physics in a lab). Basically, within 10 years, rather than sitting at a desk all day at a university, I see myself working/doing research for a company. That's why I'm thinking about a couple of different masters degrees that still require the skills i learned (ideally, a bs in physics). I am thinking about a master that has something to do with biology (cellular level), developing drugs or medical machines or programming.

What would you advice me to do? What direction should i be looking for and what step could i already take to make the transition somehow a bit smoother (considering I have no advanced knowlegde of biology or medical sciences).

So you're interested in biomedical engineering?
