Engineering REU as a Physics Major

  1. Jan 7, 2016 #1
    Would it be realistic to consider applying to engineering REUs if I am a first year physics major? Not to say that I dislike the idea of doing physics research (I am also applying to Physics REUs) but I do find engineering interesting and could potentially see myself pursuing it post-graduation. If that's even possible with a physics degree. Thanks.

    This is a question more appropriate for the administrators of the program. Some schools are more open to cross disciplinary work than others. The reputation of physics majors in the engineering departments and the supply and demand for the engineering REUs may also be important.
