Engineering Physics advice please

  1. Jan 30, 2012 #1
    If I do a B.Sc.Eng in Engineering Physics can I do a MEng in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or maybe Aerospace Engineering ?

    I like research allot, I like building stuff electrical, electronic and mechanical.

    I like to work on alternative power sources or design key sistems for air/space crafts, cars or bicycle/motorcycle, and or work on a OS in relation to the computer(computer engineering), i have a pretty good idea how to "fuel" a house from heat, food, energy, water(selfsustained well almost the food needs a bit of atention :D)... I am pretty sure it is doable.

    Let me know if you think I can do any of the masters degrees if I do a B.Sc.Eng in Engineering Physics. Thx in advance.

    PHYSICS IS SO BEAUTIFUL ... look up LENR(Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) Cold Fusion

    Quotes I respect and guide my life:

    "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."

    Re: Engineering Physics advice pls

    Nobody has an opinion about this ? :D

    How about if I do a B.Sc in Applied Mathematics and then a masters in Modeling, Simulation. I could work in a variety of fields from Economics, physics, biology, engineering... ex:earth weather models, aerodynamics, fluids ......

    1. Can I do a MEng Mechanical Engineering, MEng Aerospace Engineering, MEng Electrical Engineering after a B.Sc.Eng Engineering Physics?
    2. Is better to go the Applied Mathematics and Modeling, Simulation path ?

    Edit: Another option at the same university is Joint Honours BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science

    1. yes you can
    2.depends on what you want.

    Take my words with a grain of salt. I'm in 1st year haha.

    thx for the replay ;) any advice is appreciated.

    "2.depends on what you want."

    Well I want a large range of variety of fields that I can work in... From research to modeling to electronics.... not necesary to be the main role, but to be a part of it. Ex:Like being there when the wheel, light bulb, radio.... was invented, like a student working under Einstein and helping and taking part of it :D what a romantic story :))).

    The last 7 years besides working my daily job I research everything about anything(Physics, Biology, Engineering, Information, Education...)
    I like Space, Air/space crafts, engines, mechanical things - motion (bycicles), I like the microscopic and the macroscopic, life, nature, efficiency, education, anime, writing and many more... I'm not looking to do a degree that brings me the most money, I want a degree that can help me the most in geting a job in what I like and there are many things I like.

    Had ideas how to help car efficiency drawing power from the rotation of the wheels, the wind that is hiting the car, the light, the heat that the engine makes or the heat outside(we waste nothing well almost nothing)..... PC to TV(tv station with hardware and software), Phone company thro internet with skype and only pay the internet, an website with every person having a virtual PC where they can put there stuff, buy software and use it on any device that uses internet(ex:Photoshop on Iphone, PS Vita..), making water from air thro condensation(later on I found out it was allready invented :D) etc.... (Had the idea how to make them real but I didn't had the resource and the knowledge to do it at a fast and safe pace)

    I think as a next little project I will make a device that holds mother Earth, and the globe will be made of lcd or led with weather .... a small simulation :) like the one here at sec 0:02 on youtube /watch?v=iElJt1Y5OIs but alot smaller, with weather that moves, I don't know if I can syncronize it with satelite data... but hey "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." and "Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right."

    Sry english is not my native tongue, I hope it will improve tho.

    I was curious about how things work and building things from scraps I think since I was in kindergarden. In the last year of middle school I went from a D- student in math to A+ student in 6 months and got a B at my math exam to go to highschool... So I was allways atracted to discover things, and math is the best language, tho I'm sad because not going to college the last 5 years and loosing some math skills (education is just retarded here, and salaries are just plain rediculous I make 240$/month 180hours/month... but I want to change all that).
    Another viable option is a GOOD Mechatronics degree.
