Physics major for technology research?

  1. Aug 23, 2013 #1
    If I majored in physics would I have the qualifications to work with technology? I like physics very much and sometimes want to research but mostly I want to work with technology and find ways to make it better. Is it smart to think of a major in physics and maybe double major or minor? Or should I move away from physics altogether?

    What, exactly, do you mean by "work in technology"? What kind of technology? It sounds like you would prefer a major in engineering

    I thought of engineering but I feel that engineering just deals with the making but I want to research ways to improve things like cars, phones, computers, communication, satellites, alot of stuff with electronics and stuff like that.
