    i'm thinking about switching into the an engineering college, but i'm not sure what kind of jobs you can get with this. right now i'm an undeclared major and i want to switch into electrical engineering, but i'm afraid there will be too much job competition and i won't be able to find work, or i want to go into physics engineering, but i don't know what jobs i can get with this. can anyone tell me if i'm being overly cautious about job opportunity in electrical engineering or what kind of jobs physics majors get?

    I'm what you might call a "sanitation engineer." A plain old G.E.D. ought to get you going on that career path, should you wish to follow in my footsteps. :rolleyes:

    I always presumed a physics major was headed toward a teaching career, but maybe that is too narrow of a view. You use the term "physics engineering," and I admit I have never heard of that before.

    yea, i always figured physics majors just taught physics or something. what i meant by physics engineering is a physics major in the college of engineering, rather than a physics major in the college of liberal arts and sciences.
