Hello everyone, This is my first post. I just want a quick reality check on myself here, to calm my nerves down a little bit. Is a physics major employable? Or am I that much at a disadvantage to an engineer? A little background: I'm a sophomore at the University of Chicago studying physics. My senior year of high school I was offered a full ride to UChicago to study physics and also admission into UIUC's aerospace and electrical engineering programs. I chose UChicago based on the fact it was cheaper, it had a "better" physics program and overall education (I know I shouldn't have considered the prestige factor, but high school me did anyway), and I was having some health troubles so I wanted to be closer to home, just in case. Ever since I've came here, however, I've just been extremely nervous. I've always wanted to work in some way connected with airplanes, from design to design or even avionics design. Now I'm just worried I won't get that opportunity? I'm doing OK as a physics major, ~3.4 GPA, I took some electives including our electronics class, and I've been doing research at Fermilab since the end of my freshman year. However I'm worried I just will completely lose the engineering opportunity, seeing as my school lives and breathes finance. I'm just a bit anxious, is all. Can someone share their personal story with me, some advice about school and the future, and help calm me down a bit?
