Interest in being a physicist.. what to take?? Hey I'm in a dilemma right now so I really need help. I want to study physics in the future and be able to write my own research papers. But I also want to get a settled job first to keep my options open in the future. I wont take engineering physics because it will close down my options later. So I have put electrical engineering as my first preference in IIT Bombay, and I plan to do a minor in physics when I get there. Just in case I don't get elec, should I go for mechanical engineering or computer science?? People tell me take cs cause its highly in demand . But cs has no physics in it. I really love physics so I thought of mecanical engineering. I'm very confused. What should I do?? Please help.
