Hi, I’m a freshman Physics major in the US and I am concerned about the job opportunities directly out of undergrad. Because of this, short of switching my major to an engineering field, I was wondering if a minor in EE would substantially assist me. I know it would not be an ABET accredited BSEE, but could it open some opportunities in grey areas like optical engineering or semiconductor processing? Also, maybe it could make it easier if I wanted to go for a MSEE in the future. So, would a minor in EE be a significant benefit, or should I more seriously consider engineering? (I should mention that my department does have an Engineering Physics program, but it mostly only covers the basics of physics and EE—though it does have a decent amount of ME—and doesn’t really go deep into any of them. The highest-level physics is classical mechanics—though I would get thermo and E&M from engineering classes—and I could probably take more EE classes with a minor. So, I feel like if I were to go in that direction, I should just go into a more traditional engineering discipline.) Any and all advice is appreciated!
