Should I Double Major Physics?

  1. I am a Mechanical engineering student.This is my first year and i am thinking about doing a double major with physics.I am considering about double majoring with physics because i am interested about physics.I have second thoughts though.I have second thoughts because i am not sure how logical doing a double major with physics is and I don't know a job field that i can use these both majors together.Can you guys please help me? I don't know what to do.Should I double major with physics or not?

  3. How interested are you in physics? A minor can be suitable for you if you just want to satisfy your curiosity.
     
  4. Unfortunately there is no option as minor in my college.There is only double major.You have a point .I am thinking about double major because i want to satisfy my curiosity.İf there is a job field that i can use these both majors i will apply with no doubt.I just don't want to risk my GPA and waste my time just for curiosity.

    if you don't really think majoring physics on top of engineering will help with your career, then i would recommended that you don't bother. Focusing on engineering and use online resources and maybe a few magazine subscriptions to satisfy your curiosity.
