Im about to graduate with a physics and math double major, so I'm currently searching for graduate programs that include applied physics, applied math, and engineering. Ultimately I am interested in applying science/math to practical applications in engineering or earth science. My goal is to complete a Ph.D. and work in a government lab or industry. Im really in search of a program that has a decent balance of hands on experimental work along with modeling and theory done within a research group. Im wondering if anyone has experience in these kinds of programs and/or have advice for what type of graduate program I should look for in general or even for specific schools. I appreciate any wisdom on this.
