Oppurtunities with double major EE and MS in Math?

  1. Oct 22, 2011 #1
    I'm currently a sophomore at college and I have a very high gpa. My school offers a program where I can work on BS in EE, Math, and MS in Math in just a few years.

    What I'm wondering is if there are a lot of career opportunities for choosing this path. I am completely interested in finding out how the universe works physically and mathematically. I also have an interest in astrophysics and i feel that this path would eventually bring me to opportunities to study the universe, especially once I go to grad school.

    In other words, is this worth the trouble?

    Perhaps you should do a physics PhD.

    If you would like to do physics in a serious way, it doesn't hurt to know a bunch of math, but you might consider doing a combined MS in physics instead of in math.
