Disclaimer: I am still a highschool senior! As the title reads, I have been accepted to a private university studying electrical engineering and physics. Awesome! (No really. I honestly believed I wasn't going to be able to attend college.) The question I have is about the concentration of my program. They offer two areas. Scientific computing and Laboratory Instrumentation. My first choice is SC because I was a CSEE (Computer Science and Electrical Engineering) and decided to switch for the reason that I believed that a CS major could do the same. Questions I have about choosing Scientific Computing: 1) What is the entry level degree requirement needed to work in this area? 2) Will I need a PhD? If so, Engineering or Physics? 3) What does this field entail? 4) Is this a research based career or industry based? Thanks for taking the time to read this.
