How tough would it be to double major in EE and physics at a respected institution (say MIT)?
It sounds like you want to major in physics. Don't just study EE because you want to have financial security. I assure you, EE is very difficult, and it's not something you will be able to do if you don't really want to. If you want to major in physics, major in physics.PRodQuanta said:Thank you Maxwel and Jelfish for the informative answers. And, yes, my main focus would be physics.
How tough would you think double majoring would be if I took 5 years with one or 2 summer coarses?
The thing is, I'm really unsure what I want to be when I grow up. I am really interested in physics, but I feel that a EE degree would give me the industry edge over a physics degree. I plan to get a doctorates in physics before I get into the working world (not including internships).
Your thoughts are appreciated.
Sure is. You'd be more than prepared for your PhD. However, I don't think the same curriculums reversed would work out very well.Poop-Loops said:Well, as far as I know, University of Washington doesn't even have an "applied physics" major for undergrad, so it'll just be "physics" for now and I'll do applied physics for a ph.d. That is possible, right?
