I'm attending high school, and I'm seriously thinking about my career options. I have always loved thinking and solving problems. This year, I'm taking physics and I love it, I also do well in math. I definitely want to major in something related to physics, but what? I think I will enjoy the education that a physics undergrad receives, but I simply do not like what that education is geared towards, like teaching and research. On the other hand, I really like the kind of work engineers do. I know engineers also use and learn physics, but I think I won't be truly happy unless I study physics, but then I don't like what "physicists" generally do. So, what kind of an education would provide the knowledge and undderstanding of physicists, but the skills of an engineering? Is it possible and wise to do something like a BS in Physics, and then to merge into engineering? or to double major in physics and engineering? (although I'm not really considering doing that) I just can't help thinking that an all out physics degree might be fun to get, but it might get boring afterwards. Quite simply, how can one learn what a physicist does but be employed as an engineer? Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
