Jobs for physicists

  1. Jul 25, 2015 #1
    Hi, I would like to study physics, but i was wondering what are the advantages and disadvantages of physics in relation to physics engineering.
    My dream job, was to work as a researcher, or in a company like spacex, esa, nasa or in formula 1 (as a aerodynamicist) but I know it is very difficult, and it seems that they mostly employ engineers, so is it possible to work in a company like these, and what are the most probable jobs for a physicist. Sorry for this boring and repetitive question or for any mistakes, since english is not my first language. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Since you know it's repetitive, why not read some of the many threads on this that are already here?
