Hi guys, I am sure you receive hundreds of posts like this all the time so please be patient :). I need to apply for university and I'm very lost. Originally I was thinking of doing Math and Physics but then my brother (an E. Eng.) confused me. He says that since Eng. is so similar to Math & Physics, I should just do Eng. because there are more job opportunities. I really like math (doing Cal III at college now) , more than bio or physics and the applied math major looks very interesting (and the related careers such as cryptanalysis). So I'm back at square one. Here are my interests: 1. Math (I've always liked and done very well in it. However, I'm not interested in spending the rest of my life doing pure math research or teaching) 2. Physics (not as much as math but its alright) 3. Neuroscience (computational neuroscience seems VERY interesting. don't know about the career prospects though. maybe math & neuro double major?) 4. Engineering (probably electrical. R&D jobs might be interesting) But apparently the career opportunities are really good compared to the choices above.) By interest: Math>Neuro>Eng=Physics I'd like to study something that will allow me to do research (I will probably do at least a masters, regardless of what I choose) in an interesting applied field (either physical or bio related). Most importantly, my interests change very often. So I'd like to study something that, at least for the first couple years after graduation, will allow me to work in many different fields. From what I've read online, applied math seems to be a very versatile degree. Finally, a degree that won't make finding a decent paying job too hard. Sorry for all the info. :) Does anyone have some sort of suggestion as to what major(s) I should choose? Thanks.
