I am currently an EE student, but I love physics. I want to switch to Physics but am too concerned about the job market. I am only a freshman, and I think I would like EE but would one day want to join with fusion research as a physicist. I know I would need some kind of physics PhD. The thing keeping me from switching majors is the job market for physicist vs. engineers. I know a lot of PhD physicists end up unemployed or severely underemployed. I think EE is much more safe. I don't want to double major because it would add at least 3 more semesters. Could I go from a BS in EE straight to a PhD physics program or is that not possible. If so, would engineering firms still hire me if I had a PhD in Physics? Any suggestions are appreciated.
