Possible Transfer

  1. May 28, 2010 #1

    I am currently finishing the 2nd year of a Materials Science degree, what I really want to do after my final year (next year) is to get a PhD hopefully in condensed matter physics. I was wondering what people thought of the transition, from materials science to physics, my current course does not have the maths content that most Physics degrees have.

    Any advice on improving my chances would be extremely welcome.

    Perhaps you could contact an advisor or instructor in a physics department that you would like to attend for grad school. Tell them what your goal is and ask their advice.
