I'm currently a freshman at UIUC and a physics major. I've asked for a lot of advice on these forums and elsewhere and I think I may want to consider a double degree in some sort of engineering and physics. I have all my general education requirements done (thanks to a lot of AP credits) so all I have left is classes relating to my major. Here are the classes I would need to complete for one or both degrees. Any thoughts? I wouldn't be adverse to staying an extra year but it will be very tech and math-intensive for almost all of college (which I dont mind).
