I'm supposed to go for Computer Engineering undergrad at UIUC this fall. BUt now I feel like I'd rather learn about the fundamentals of the universe, elementary particles, etc. instead of a routine set of instructional stuff in CE. I know I want to learn that stuff. But what can I do with a degree in Physics? What exactly is research like anyways? BTW, I'm pretty good with math and physics. So academically, I feel I'm qualified. I want to do stuff with theoretical physics/collidors/string theory/etc....one day, hopefully.
