I'm currently working in IT as a senior system administrator and I've gotten to the point I'm just burnt out on the field. I've finally settled down and the other half has encouraged me to change careers like I've talked about for a while now. I have a bachelor of arts in history with a computer programming minor. I was an EE for 3 years and had to drop due to a variety of reasons I won't go into here. My grades are good I've got the math background but I'll need a refresher as I simply have used it in 5 years. I'm wanting to go back and get a physics degree as I really enjoyed physics especially the lab work, even when it wasn't doing the "fun" things. We are moving to the Phoenix area for her new job and I'm curious of any programs recommended in the area and how is the job market there for the physics degree. I'm more hands on in my liking so lab work or maybe ME type work. Any suggestions are welcome.
