Hey everyone, This is my very first post here on PF. I haven't been in a forum for ages, so excuse me if I make any gaffe. I'm also not very sure if this is the correct section to post this question, so I apologise in advance for any inconvenience. I like physics and engineering a lot. I'm applying both for Physics and Engineering Physics in college. I'd like to know if a physicist has a good chance to work in the engineering industry, particularly Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. I looked in the MIT website a lot of exciting applied physics research topics that dealed with cutting-edge technology. Also, it might be worthy to highlight the fact that, altho I asked about the engineering industry, I believe I'm more prone to work with research. A physicist friend of mine (BSc, M.S and PhD all in Physics), who is currently working with Nuclear Engineering in England, told me that a physicist shouldn't have a problem working in engineering, provided he/she took some engineering courses (or preferably a grad degree) in college. It'd be nice to hear both from engineers and physicists. Thanks! P.S.: Sorry for any English mistake. It's not my mother tongue.
