Hi guys, this is my first post on the forum as a joined just a few minutes ago. So I'm stuck in a very complex situation in life. I really want to become a physicist but duo to some reason it's not an easy choice for me. My only parents have enough money to support my education up until my bachelors as I have two siblings who are going college in a few years too. So getting into physics might not be a really good choice for me as good jobs are very scarce which is why I have decided to get into engineering(Electrical) so at least I can support myself a little after my graduation. What I'm planning on doing is to have a degree in engineering as a backup and then pursue my education in physics but I'm not sure if it's actually possible. What route do I have to take to start with an engineering degree and then head on to ph.d in Physics maybe. I want to know if it's actually viable to pursue such a career path and how hard will it be? Getting admission doesn't seem like a problem right now as I've already got admission in a few of Engineering colleges, so my only problem is that I want to know if this is a possible route which I'm trying to take. Some of my friends told me it's possible to graduate with an engineering degree and then masters in physics and from there continue my education but it doesn't make sense to me, how can I get masters in physics when I don't have bachelors.
