Engineering Joining an engineering grad school after a major in physics

  1. Jun 22, 2011 #1
    This is going to be my first post on pf, even though I have been following the insightful topics for a long time.I have majored in physics and after that I have decided to follow a grad course and do something where I can apply my knowledge of physics and get a good job after it.

    can someone list all the courses I can look forward to? Also, is it possible to switch to fields like areospace engg. or mechanical engg.?

    Most graduate engineering programs require an undergraduate degree in engineering. However there are a few that might accept you with the additional requirement to take some undergraduate engineering courses as pre-requisites.

    Like Timesea81 said, where I went to school you can get in with a physics degree no problem, but you would have to take a few additional courses. Some programs, such as UC Santa Barbara in the US, consider a physics background superior to an EE background.
