Hi everyone,

I'm currently an Applied Mathematics major at a local university. I have finished two years. I'm trying to decide if I want finish my applied math degree or transfer and take up electrical engineering at a different school.

On the one hand, finishing my applied math degree will be MUCH cheaper. I'll be able to graduate debt free. But on the other, I don't really want to be an actuary.

If I transfer to an engineering school, it'll take me three years to finish their electrical engineering program, giving me a total of five years of undergraduate schooling. Of course, I won't have the benefit of the scholarships that incoming freshman normally have access too.

I have a passion for engineering. I really want to be involved in the sciences after finishing school -- but I don't want to be crippled by debt. What kind of graduate programs would be available for me upon finishing my applied mathematics degree? Feel free to give me the full spectrum, but specifically let me know if there are any graduate programs that could land me a job in industry doing research in the hard sciences.

Let me know if I can elaborate. Thank you.
