Can i pursue post grad in physics directly having an undergraduate degree in E&E?

  1. Jul 21, 2012 #1
    Im about to finish my undergraduation degree in Electronics and communication engineering.. I love physics, which is the fundamental aspect of all science and math helping it hand in hand and hence i wish to carry on my career wrt quantum mechanics feild.. My doubt is, i dont have a profound knowledge in either math or physics to directly carry a post graduation in physics with respect to feild i intend.. I dont have a particular knowledge as to what to do to carry out my future in this field.. I need a detailed possibilities as to how to figure it out..

    My main question is, should i try having another undergraduation degree in physics or can i directly carry out post grad and in the meantime learn necessary things which can help for post graduation? I tried to learn intuitively too but i just felt most complex things in math and physics need a best professor to sort u out what is that.. Im a sort of a person who cannot just forget a topic until i get it.. So its that i need a particular approach as to proceed with your help..

    Any help would be appreciated without sarcasm because i have experienced it here trying to explain.. Most people dont understand the perfect situation im in or rather i cant explain it particularly.. So any help would be really appreciated.. Please sort it out in a particular manner which gives a clear view of ur opinion

    Thankyou

    Avoid using text speak.

    There is a *stickied* thread which addresses the very issue of going into a physics graduate program while having a degree that's not in physics. Read it.

    Not everyone is from an english-speaking country you know. But I would like an answer to this myself as I am an aeronautical engineer considering doing research in physics.

    Which is one reason we encourage the use of standard English over "text-speak". Why make it harder to read for newcomers to the language than is necessary?

    Which part of the stickied thread did you not understand or was incomplete?

    I read that thread and it doesnt pertain exactly to my situation. I am curous about integrating pure physics with engineering as a possible PhD research topic.
