Hello, I am currently a sophomore student double major in physics & math in a flagship state university. Last semester I took 28 credits with 4 math courses (Multivarible Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equation, Elementary Analysis), 3 intro-level physics courses (E&M, Thermal, Wave&Quantum), an introductory statistics and an elementary music theory course. I did that just for fun but it dragged down my GPA from 3.9+ to 3.6+. This semester I have only 6 courses (Piano, General Chem II, Organic Chem I, Discrete Math, upper-level QM and upper-level Linear Algebra) but still feel stressed. I procrastinate with readings/homework. I think I'm burning out and not interested in theoretical physics or pure math any more. Thus I want to change my major to some more "applied" and interesting fields such as Computer Engineering/Electrical Engineering/Engineering Science(ESc). My ultimate goal is to go to a top graduate school, get a PhD and do research in academia or industry. I want to know your opinion and I'm not ask something "for sure". 1. Do typical grad admission committees in engineering favor an extra science major (eg. double EE/PHYS or double CE/PHYS or triple ESc/PHYS/MATH) or an extra engineering major (eg. double EE/ESc or double CE/EE) or save time and take more higher level courses (eg. grad courses) in the engineering field? Do they really care about double/triple major? Do they care about advanced courses (A- avg grade) on transcript? (PS. ESc is a competitive honor major. PPS. We have Physics degree with EE concentration.) 2. If they do care about the advanced courses, is it beneficial to take courses in other (but relative) fields? For example take some MEMS/MOEMS courses by ESc department when I am an EE student. 3. Breadth or depth? If well planned, I can take ALL the undergrad EE courses and graduate in four years. Alternatively, I can take only one course from each branch of EE and focus on a specific field (most likely the field of my undergrad research) and take all the undergard and grad courses in that field. 4. Is it better for graduate admission if I do intensive research and advanced courses in an extra year (i.e. graduate in five years)? 5. If I won't keep my physics major, is it useful to get a physics minor? I can get a minor with only a couple of physics electives (eg. Solid State, E&M II, QM II, etc.) which might be useful in engineering. For all the questions above, assume I can keep a GPA around 3.8 and do research from the second semester of the sophomore year. Thanks.
