Pursuing physics after B-tech

  1. May 9, 2012 #1
    am a student of engineering really interested in physics.tried engineering but discovered that its not my cup of tea.I would like to take up physics again.And i was wondering if there was anyway i could pursue a career in physics after my B-tech.As in is it possible to have an integrated masters program majoring in both engineering and physics..or maybe a major in engineering with a minor in physics or anything like that?I finsh my B-tech in a year and would really like your suggestions.

    help would be appreciated
    thanks in advance.

    Look for ZapperZ's "I have so and so degree, can I get into physics?" thread.

    There are also a number of students having done BTech degrees and then gone on to do PhDs in physics in the states. Try contacting them via www.physicsgre.com - search for "BTech" (and similar keywords) before making a thread. I wasn't even looking for those threads and I saw 3-4. In that very website's "applicant profiles" thread, there is someone with a BTech in Civil Engineering who got into a few PhD programs in physics.
