Hello, Firstly, I'm technically a senior working towards my Bachelors in Mathematical Science. I chose a physics concentration for my math degree. However, working with my advisors, I've taken several special topics classes (such as particle physics) to beef up my physics background. At the end of the day, I want to work with civil / structural engineers. So why didn't I jump into a civil engineering program from the start? Because I'm trying to build something more strongly geared to what I want to do. I could care less about building roads, dams, and bridges but the physics behind them interest me beyond belief. So here comes the problem... I've been looking at Marshall University. It is a great school, they have a physics program, and its close to home. I'm not planning on getting a Ph.D (at least not at the moment) but I am planning on getting a masters degree. Fortunately, Marshall also has a civil engineering program. The nature of Marshall's physics program is structured so that I could mix physics and civil engineering classes, essentially building a degree structured around what I want to do with my life. Assuming I completed the masters in Physics with a large blend of Civil Engineering, would I still be able to take a state test to become a state licensed civil engineer? How would I explain what I am? Engineer? Physicist? Both? or something in between?
