I graduated with degrees in both mechanical engineering and physics the past spring. I'm sort of feeling however that I wasted my time doing this. And by that I mean that a BS in physics does nothing in terms of finding jobs (unlike a BS in engineering). And also not going for a PhD in physics after getting the BS basically means that my physics career is over. I also feel like if I had only done one degree or the other then I would have done much better in that degree in terms of grades and experience. Any thoughts on this? But then again it is also all in the past now so I guess that's good? I guess there is also the idea of where to go from here. I suppose my main area of interest is to pursue a career in nuclear engineering. I just finished applying to a lot of PhD programs in NE and am waiting to hear results. But how else could I leverage my double degree to my advantage? I feel like there was a lot of overlap in terms of computational skills learned so I'm not too sure I can do much there. Also, what about non-STEM jobs? I've heard a lot of STEM majors can take jobs in consulting without leveraging their technical skills and just leveraging the fact they have a degree and the employer looks at that as them being intelligent/competent. Could I leverage my double degree to show that I would be a great employee even if I never actually use anything I learned in school?
