Hi, I'm a senior highschool student interested in a career in photonics and nanophotonics. The school I will be going to is well known for it's optical sciences and offers a bs in OSE (Optical Sciences and Engineering). Having never heard that such degrees existed, I applied for a physics degree before I noticed the bs in OSE. I already have been thinking, for employment reasons, about changing to an engineering degree, but never knew these kind of engineering degrees existed (it's even ABET accredited). I was wondering if anybody in this feild, or atleast well acquainted with it, (maybe someone like zapperz?) could tell me if a bs in OSE would be a better, or just as good of, preparation (with a few physics courses like quantum physics and special relativity on the side, of course) than a bs in physics. This is the first time a degree has cought my attention more than physics! Sorry for the long message (first post) and thanks for all the help.
