Physics Physics to Engineer advanced things

  1. Jun 7, 2010 #1
    Because I like both physics and engineering, can I do a physics undergraduate and then go on to engineering master's and Ph.D degrees afterwards, or do those require engineering undergraduate?

    Depends what you want to do. Some topics will transfer well, others won't.

    Well for instance is it possible for me to do undergraduate physics and then go on to master's nuclear engineering?

    I can speak for the UK in saying - generally yes. Quite a few engineering subjects at post-grad level here require only a 'science' subject, so you would even qualify for some with a chemistry degree.

    If there's something specific you're wondering about it's maybe worth spending a few minutes looking at university websites to check the entry requirements.
