Physics (B. Sc) -> Engineering (M. Sc)? Possible?

    Physics (B. Sc) --> Engineering (M. Sc)? Possible?

    Is it possible to get a M. Sc in, say, aerospace engineering, with a B. Sc in physics? Now I understand that, if possible, it would certainly be a hard transition, but nonetheless, is it ever done? Thanks very much.

    What of the reverse? Can a BS Mech. Eng. grad go for a Masters in Physics? This is my plan, so I've been learning Physics on the side.

    Yes this has been discussed extensively in the forum before. It can be done. Try the search function, the thread(s) I'm thinking of should turn up.

    Can't you do it with any major? I know that they usually require you then to take some undergraduate classes in order to qualify. Not sure how many, but I think it could be up to 1 year worth of classes.
