Compter Engineer Vs Physicist

  1. Apr 17, 2010 #1
    Hey All,
    I am here to ask a very different but important (for me and many more) thing...which field is better in terms of career opportunities, excellence and ofcourse money.

    where did you pull those 2 random professions out of? that's like saying who makes more an accountant or a plumber?

    What does that even mean?

    its nt about these things ...its just about two professions which are open to physicist...and we are just comparing them...

    In different parts of the world, people have different views on the "social status" of various professions. So you might want to tell us what part of the world you're in. :smile:

    You can ignore this particular word as well...what about other two things??

    For sure computer engineers are very sought but once a physicist has gotten a job, he is more payed than a computer engineer. Furthermore, physicists are most respected in society and are open for different careers!

    Don't underestimate the amount of $$$ a plumber makes...

    Apart from academics what other careers options are open for physicists??
