Hi all. So I've stalked the forum for the past few months or so and read more threads than I can count. Figured it was time to join up and post a bit. The title basically says everything I want to ask, but let me go into a bit more detail. I'm 21 and I graduated with a Physics B.S. this Spring and am heading straight into an EE M.S. program where I'll focus on photonics and opto-electronics. I lucked out hard and, because of a bunch of factors, don't have any courses to make up. Despite that, I'm apprehensive about what I'll be up against just jumping straight into engineering with virtually no "applicable" engineering academic background. I should probably mention that I'm taking solid state electronics, E&M in electronics, and a modern optics class (offered by the physics department), so my first semester is basically just physics classes as far as I can tell. My subsequent semesters (providing class offerings are favorable) are looking to be very similar with classes on lasers, semiconductor devices, photonics, quantum in EE, etc. Now a bit about me. I've done a ton of research focusing on satellite development and atmospheric physics. Most of my contributions were in the form of optics development, algorithms, and electronics testing, so it's definitely at least a little relevant. That said, I can program quite well in a handful of languages and am comfortable enough with circuits (I did very well in the electronics class I took and can rewire guitars, tinker with computers, etc.) to think that EE is a good fit for me. Not only that, but given my focus, I would imagine that a physics background might be especially helpful. Although, that could just be dismissed as naive, hopeful thinking. Either way, I'd like to hear thoughts. Essentially, has anyone (or anyone you know) gone from a B.S. in physics to a Master's program in EE and been successful? As a further question, has anyone done this while focusing on photonics and opto/micro/nano electronics? In my reading I have seen this specific question asked, but I wanted to get my own personal spin on it. Sorry if I rambled on too much, but if you made it this far, I thank you.
