MS in EE or more?

  1. Mar 9, 2014 #1
    I am only a first year EE student, but I was think about where I could go with this major. I know I am getting at least a MS in EE; however, I love physics and always wanted to work in physics. I keep hearing physics has a terrible job market. Is it really true that a good amount of physics PhD's end up working outside of physics? Does "outside of physics" include engineering? I would be ok with that.

    Basically, for someone who loves physics, would it be worth trying to get a physics PhD after a MS in EE and could I find a physics job? "Physics job" wouldn't have to be a university research position.
