So I'm a freshman in college right now and I am a physics major. The class I am also having most trouble with is.......physics. I am doing great in math but physics is tougher for me. I was thinking that maybe physics isn't for me, as also looking around I realized just how theory-based everything in physics is, and I was thinking of going into electrical engineering. I know it involves a lot of physics still but I feel that a more applied look at it will help me stay interested and also I do enjoy building things, using my hands and figuring out how gadgets work, even though I'm not particularly great at it. My dad is an electrician and I enjoy working with him and I was big into robotics in high school and loved building things. I also want to apply my knowledge to real-world problems and really have an impact on people's lives. My only concerns in engineering is how much I hear that engineers are paper-pushers, and that I feel many jobs in engineering is just using methods other people have come up with and applying it to your situation. Not to offend anyone but I don't know exactly how much research goes on in an engineer's job. The head of the department of electrical engineering however said it depends on what I do with my degree if I got it in engineering, but my question is how feasible is it to get an engineering job where I get a decent amount of hands-on work with a lot of room for innovation? Thank you!
