andresB said:I know of two places where they would give you (if they accept you) one extra year for you to cover undergrad classical mechs/EM/stat mech/quantum mech. But I suppose these kinds of places are unusual, and it is still one extra year dedicated to grad school (and not dedicated to making money in the industry). The path is still possible, though.
I am interested in pursuing graduate reserch in physics. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering with a research in classical mechanics. However, PhD programs require a background in modern physics in order to be accepted and I would prefer to strengthen my preparation in quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, and statistical mechanics before pursuing a PhD in physics.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find schools or programs that offer the option of advanced undergraduate courses in these subjects, unless by starting a new undergraduate program (impractical). Most Master's programs are intended as terminal degrees and offer only professional-type courses, without the rigor required for a PhD in physics.
If you have any recommendations for schools that offer this option, it would be greatly appreciated
