Masters degree??? One of my friends has a B.S in physics, and a masters in mechanical engineering. He did it all in 6 years. Now surely an appreciable amount of physics relates to mechanical engineering, but is it typically that easy to complete another "separate" major like that? If I do 4 years of applied mathematics, could I then get a masters degree in say electrical engineering in only 2 years? It just doesn't seem feasible. Maybe I am missing something?
