Do you think having an MSEE will be useful in getting into a very good Physics PhD program?
I think what Vanadium is alluding to is that, it sounds rather strange to get a non-physics degree so that one can do a Physics PhD program. It isn't impossible, but one would think that getting a physics degree with be a major advantage to get into a "very good Physics PhD program".Do you think having an MSEE will be useful in getting into a very good Physics PhD program?
See, now that's different. It would help if you describe your full situation rather than just snippets of it, which doesn't allow us to give you a more complete assessment.Sure it does. I went for BS Physics at a state school and it was really tough finding a job after that. So I am going back for my masters in electrical engineering to increase my employability. However, I think I would like to teach physics at the college level after I work in industry. Wondering if having an MSEE from a good school would help me get into a better program than I would have with just a BSEE from a mediocre school.
Fortunately most EE jobs don't require a license. I know of nobody with an EE degree that graduated with me that felt like they had to take the PE exam.Also don't forget, you probably can't apply for a professional engineers license without a bachelor of engineering, even if you have a masters.
