I have an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering, I'm 27, I've been working on different infrastructure projects since graduating and I currently work for the UN developing sustainable infrastructure & shelter solutions in crisis. I'm not sure where I want my career to end up but I aspire to be a scientist, in the theoretical domain perhaps (theoretical physics...) but I have an open mind. I plan to do so according to the following steps, your insight into the bellow is most appreciated:

Step 1: Quit my job in 2 months time

Step 2: Obtain a certificate in Data Science (full-time over 3 months)

Step 3: Obtain a certificate in Theoretical Physics (2-week concentrated program)

Step 4: Start a masters in Computational Mathematics (I've already received my acceptance)

*time elapses*

Step 5: Finish a masters in Computational Mathematics

Step 6: Depending on financial situation, either find job (development, consultancies, research...) or continue on to a PhD either in Theoretical Physics, Computational Sciences (Data, Mathematics...)...

That's the rough outline for now. Does any of the above seem out of place ?

Cheers.
