Best double major for Electrical Engineering? CS or Physics?

  1. May 5, 2015 #1
    I'm hoping to work in an Astronomy-related field. My dream would be NASA, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I'm currently working on my Electrical Engineering BS.

    What would the best double major be to compliment my end goals, Computer Science or Physics?

    Thank you!!

    I'm just speaking from what I know here (which is remarkably little), but I presume it depends on what kind of job you'd like to have at NASA. Electrical engineers work in a wide variety of situations at NASA. For example, a physics double major would probably be more useful to an EE interested in RF engineering or chip design, whereas a computer science major may be useful to someone in computer engineering or (I presume) control systems.
