Good day to everyone reading this, I thought I would know what degree I would want to pursue after high school, however I have not decided what I should do in the future. My interest in science arose a little over an year ago, especially in physics, after I tried amateur karting. Before, I was an above average student in any science, nothing spectacular. Last year, I did a lot better in Physics, Maths, Biology and Chemistry, which reinforced my idea to pursue a career within science. I realised I was interested in pretty much everything that involved Physics and Engineering, but I have narrowed it down to this: Basically, it's another scientist or engineer thread. What I am interested in: (Not in a set order) - Nuclear and Particle Physics - Robots - Outer space - Artificial Intelligence - Mechanical Engineering (and its branches) Things I want to do: (Not in a set order) - Work mostly in R&D - Make Drones, Quadcopters, Multirotors - Make Space exploration vehicles - Contribute to Automation and Physics, if possible - Make a stable income Bachelor degrees I have considered: (off the top of my head) - Mechatronics - Aerospace Engineering - Robotics - Mechanical Engineering - Physics - Dual Degrees: I have seen Robotics and Mechatronics (Would that be worth it?), Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and others. Notes: - I am still in high school, I have one more year to complete. - I am still focused on studying for SAT, so I haven't done much research beyond universities and degrees. And my own thoughts. - I am looking to do more of applied, than ''pure'' research. Questions: - Can I do all of the ''Things I want to do'' by getting a bachelor's degree(and eventually a major) in one particular field? - What degree of the listed (and others that I did not mention) suits me the best? - What bachelor degrees are centered around Nuclear and Particle Physics?
