Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey guys, I’m a junior in Florida studying mechanical engineering. My school currently offers a 4+1 accelerated masters program for mechanical engineering which I’m strongly considering. How feasible is it for me to to do this and then apply for a PhD in electrical engineering to another university of Florida? I don’t mind that the most if any of the masters classes from my mechanical masters won’t count for the electrical engineering PhD. I’m also aware that the time I spend in school will be extended for a year or 2, but I’m wondering how with admission boards view the change in engineering major after a masters? Will this keep me from getting my PhD in electrical engineering? I know this is a year or 2 away still but it’ll likely creep up fast. Thanks for any help.
