BE Mechanical Engineering to Graduate Physics in Plasma

  1. Jan 30, 2011 #1

    I am from India, and i have graduated in mechanical engineering in 2010. Since then i have been working, performing IT systems audit. I like the job but, I think i would be happier(Joy of Understanding - Rattleback???!) in physics. I would like to pursue a graduate degree (MSc) in plasma physics and finally work on fusion. I have taken a look at various universities (US and Europe) and understand that i have a lot of ground to cover before i can understand Plasma Physics.

    Now, i have two options

    1) Take up a 1 year masters course at university of York(UK) - Plasma Physics (Taught Course) and then apply for an integrated PhD course in the US.

    2) Start at the Undergraduate Level and complete a Physics Major and then apply for a masters.

    I understand that the 2nd option is the ideal, but then time becomes a factor as well as i am 22 years old.

    What do you guys think i should do? Is there any other option? Let me Know

    Just to give you context - My college is in the top 30 in the country. I averaged a 75% on my BE. and my research(as part of the course) was in Tensegrity.
