Hello, I'm new here and currently a 10th grader, and unlike many of my friends I've known what I want to be since the 4th grade, only it's an endless bout between the two heavyweights of Physics and Engineering. Math has always come fairly naturally to me and have never gotten less than an "A" in the subject and my science classes are the same way. So I have a few questions, 1) I've always assumed that physics is more researched oriented while engineering is (for lack of a better word) industrial. Is this the reality? 2) Can someone explain the lives of both of these professions? 3) How will studying both of these fields differ? 4) Finally (for now) how would you suggest a possible academic path (dual major, on of those 5-year accelerated programs, choosing one, etc.) Thanks so much!!
