Physics to Robotics to Entrepreneur

  1. Sep 11, 2014 #1
    Currently on a physics and maths course, going to switch to robotics, have fun building robots in the countryside for 3 years, graduate and then become a freelance entrepreneur/web designer/permanent traveller.

    Good life plan?

    Sounds great to me. Good luck!

    I'll probably go ahead with it then.

    I don't suppose anyone's done anything similar?

    Hey sounds great. How do you plan to switch to robotics. As in gonna switch major to mech. eng. or just gonna learn robotics on your own? Either ways, sounds like lots of fun.

    An acquantence of mine got a PhD in nuclear physics and now works for a robotics startup without much prior experience; he just happened to meet someone at the national lab he worked at.

    So there's one real-life example of that happening.
