Sorry if this has been brought up before, but I couldn't find any threads related to this topic.
I'm currently doing my BSc in physics, and I want to know how possible is it after finishing the BSc in physics to start at a masters in Electroengineering? Or maybe it is easier if you have MS in physics?
I wouldn't have to worry about the math/physics courses, but then there are specific courses for the EE that I would lack, so I would maybe have to take them before starting on a masters in EE?

Most likely at an ABET accredited school, you would be required to take some undergraduate coursework before or while you are working on your graduate coursework as prerequisites. For example, a friend of mine who took the physics route to an optics degree as opposed to the engineering route (there was exactly 2 courses different) had to take about a years worth of undergrad coursework before the graduate school would allow him to enroll as an EE grad sudent.
