Chemistry or EE? How do they differ?
Scared in terms of jobs.. I wouldn't plan on doing a PhD, although maybe a Master's. From what everyone says, Physics majors do Engineering jobs. I guess I'm confused on the whole Physics Bachelor's thing. I would like to get into scientific instrumentation. Like analytical Chem, or something like that. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Certainly different markets/regions may produce different demands for particular disciplines.I think it's easier to get a job with a BS in chemistry than a BS in physics (just based on my experience). Especially if you like working with instruments, you should consider going with chemistry.
How are the prospects of an Engineering Physics major, both in terms of employment right out of college and graduate school?
http://physics.usask.ca/We have found that the special mix of fundamental science and practical skills that Engineering Physics graduates learn make them very employable. Graduates have found jobs in research, technology development, optics and software sectors of industry. Many of our graduates have obtained employment with universities, government laboratories and companies such as Nortel, JDS Uniphase, Corning, SED Systems, MDRobotics, Cameco, Kipp-Zonen and other local and international high technology companies. Graduates are well equipped to pursue post-graduate studies in any area of Physics or Engineering Physics should they so desire.
