I am a EE major considering Eng Phys

  1. Oct 9, 2012 #1
    I am currently a sophomore in electrical engineering and I am considering transferring into engineering physics.

    I believe the more physics directed study may be more to my liking as in my free time I like to browse these forums and peruse textbooks on QFT and canonical gravity and the like. Also graduate studies in physics would then be more readily available to me with an engineering physics degree than an electrical engineering degree. Even though I could get a MEng in EE, I could more so see myself doing work in theoretical or experimental physics.

    The only problem is that I am currently enrolled in a cooperative program for electrical engineering that is not offered with engineering physics. I am also thinking career-wise, that following through with an EE degree in a coop program will make me more employable and having more options than pursuing graduate studies in physics.

    So, I beg of you PF, please give me some advice or your thoughts (and any personal anecdotes) that could help me make my decision.
