Changing my field

  1. May 4, 2009 #1
    I live in India. I am currently in 2nd year doing a degree in engineering in Information Technology. I don't find the course interesting. I am totally bugged up. The pure theoretical courses bug me up. When I entered it I had thought they would contain courses on Programming languages and algorithms and stuff like that. But now I find that there are only one course per semester like that which I can study. About the rest of the courses I would rather not speak.

    I am highly interested in Physics, Mathematics and Computers and I want to do a Ph.D. in Physics.

    Now there are two ways I can do that. The first one is to continue with my B.Tech. and study Physics side by side(already started) and give exams for entrance into a good Graduate program. The second is to drop my B.Tech. and do a B.S. in Physics.
    Which one would be better?

    First one would be more hectic and I don't know whether I would be able to handle the courses of my B.Tech. this way.
    The second one would take a longer time.
