Hey PF first post here, was looking for some career advice on engineering and physics related employment. I'm 22 years old, from Australia, and have just completed high school at an adult college after dropping out of 11th grade about 6 years ago and working as a construction builder and supervisor. I decided at the start of the year I was going to complete high school before I got any older and try to get into university so that I could work towards not a better paying job (as I made plenty in my former construction jobs) but towards a career thats better suited towards my interests in science, physics and mathematics. I just feel like I could be doing something that pushes my brain much further then being in physical work. I enrolled in an adult college to complete 12th grade at the start of this year, I picked physics, chemistry, math and math specialist (advanced math) and have managed to get all A's and B's, impressing my teachers after such a long absence from any study at all. I have done very well in physics and both my math classes, but not so well in chemistry where I just managed to get a B+ after so much hard work and study. Civil and chemical engineering have been suggested to me as a good career to have, espescially here in Australia where we have a major mining industry for engineers. But since completing 12th grade and being faced with picking a Uni course, I have found that I enjoy physics the most and I'm doing pretty well in maths, but chemistry while I really enjoy it, isn't my best area when it comes to test scores, grades, ect. So where does that leave me? I know this is a fairly vast question, but is engineering the best choice for me? or should I push myself to achieve a degree in an area of physics? even if the career possibilities may be much better for engineering where theres more jobs, money, ect?
