Hello. I'm interested in the field of physics/engineering, and I have a vague plan of what I would like to do; though I admit my lack of knowledge on the subject as a whole.
Some question I have are: What does a physics major due outside of the engineering fields? I see that many theoretical physicists work in researce; though what does the experimental physicist do? How could a degree (of any level) of physics work for a career?

What else is there? How do you use physics by itself? how can a physics degree work for engineering?
The answer to any other question I have forgotten to ask will help as well.
If there are similar threads please link them.

Your one stop shop for all things physics education and work related:

Specifically check out:

It is just a bunch of tables and charts, but I should give you some idea.
