Hey all, I am looking for some advice on what my options are to change career path. I will graduate this summer with a degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering and have already secured a graduate job within a very reputable power engineering company. The job is everything I could have asked for - good salary, good benefits and exciting prospects and had this been 2 years ago I would have been thrilled. I was attracted to the problem solving nature of engineering and my love for maths but recently I have developed an increasingly intense drive to understand physics and the universe. Particularly astronomy and astrophysics. I have always had an interest in this but never really considered it as a career path. So I have a few questions. Has anyone ever moved from engineering to physics? Would I have to do some sort of post-grad? Or can I use my engineering degree for a career in physics and if so where would I look for work? I am not talking immediately as I will start my new job this summer and before I consider any career change I want to reach chartered engineer status as I see this as the ultimate acknowledgement of my achievements in electrical engineering. I just want to guage if I can make this dream a reality or if it will forever be just a side interest. Any suggestions/advice welcome and thanks in advance.
