Dear All, Hi I am a senior graduating soon, majoring in EE, but I am thinking of pursuing post grad in physics. The thing is, I have only taken 3 QM courses, 2 Math Method courses and an intro to SR/GR since junior. Worse still, I did rather badly on them. I have genuine interests in theoretical physics, but exam results have been discouraging. Some advices from you all on my two questions below are really appreciated. (1) I have been wondering: is there really a deep difference between how one approaches engineering and physics? Personally, I think I have been too "engineering" oriented when learning physics. If so, how should I approach learning physics? In other words, how would you teach an engineer physics? (2) I am also looking at routes to eventually pursue a PhD in physics. Obviously I can't apply directly to a PhD program. But how about a Master's program? Typically what are the entry requirements for Master's? Any engineer-turned-physicists would like to share their experiences? Thanks in advance!
