I am very interested in a combined engineering + physics program, it is a 5 year program and I would be awarded with a degree in science, a degree in engineering and a honors degree in science at the end of the program. Is this a good idea? Or is it better to just do physics then go into post grad? The thing is that with the engineering degree I can find a job much more easily. The program is very heavily focused on research and development. My father who is a computer scientist and my uncle who is a physicist (PhD in particle physics from Michigan) are both against this idea because both of them have jobs with very low pay so they are pushing me towards medicine. I do like studying medicine but I do not and will not enjoy practicing it. Ultimately I want to work in quantum computing because I believe that it is a very revolutionary and interesting thing. Should I follow my passion and risk being unemployed or should I follow the money? Also, is it a good idea to do electrical/computer engineering + physics for the majors for each degree? Thank you!
