Main Question or Discussion Point
I love physics and the advanced knowledge the field has, but I also love making applications and building things like engineers do. Would it be possible for me to get my undergraduate in physics, to get a masters in engineering (preferably electrical engineering) and then get a doctorate in either quantum, particle or condensed matter physics? If this is possible how long would it take, and what kind of opportunities would be out there for me if I did do this. I would like to be someone like a Nikola Tesla, so in other words would this help me get to do the types of things that he did, along with some of my own ideas?
