I'm a freshman at university, studying for a BSc in Physics. I am quite certain that I will eventually want a career in research (academic or industry), but I'm also very interested in aircraft design/simulation(defense sector), The problem is I really can't understand which degree would have more relevance between Physics and an engineering discipline(EE or Mech). A background on my interest: Father did a BS in EE, PhD in CS, spent first 15 years of career in academia, next 10 years in defense and currently works in software. (I seem to find the work he did in defense most interesting). He's of the opinion that an engineering degree would offer that versatility and the ability to easily transition between fields...and that Physics would limit that. I need to pick soon, because I will need to transfer to my school of engineering soon if I go ahead with that. Sorry if this was unstructured...but I really need solid advice. Thank you!
