Simply put - which one would you choose and why? I have a physics spot in the University of Tartu, i'll probably acquire a spot for technical physics in the near future in the Tallinn's University of Technology. The way i see it, technical physics is all about application, but i'm worried that it will not give me the big picture. Physics will probably be more profound, but at the same time, it might become a bit too dry for me. Since i want to apply my knowledge and i'd rather build something useful (given that i have the capabilities) than do research. What i love about the technical physics programme is that it gives me the opportunity to get my Master's degree in biomedical technology (humans seem so complex, i love the challenge), which seems to be a new promising field, at least in my mind. I'm afraid that pure physics won't give me the skills nor the opportunities to engineer something myself or to come up with new applications. It seems that all the great discoveries have all been made already and we know quite a lot, it's time to put that into good use. But.. on the other hand.. i don't want to miss out on other awesome things in physics (astrophysics, high energy physics, quantum mechanics). Damn, it's like.. i want to be the jack of all trades, but that means being master of none. tl;dr Just answer the first question. Thank you!
