I'm at a crossroads and I don't know if I'm going to make the right decision. I took up aerospace engineering this academic year, I passed the first semester and I don't know if I want to continue. I almost made the decision to drop out and take physics or nano materials the next year. If I take nano materials, I can still apply for physics for graduate studies. I loved physics in high school, but I didn't think seriously about studying it, as it's hard to find a job in the field, at least in my country (high school teacher, stay at uni or if you are very good, there's a national institute of physics). But now, 1 year later I think that job prospects should not make me decide what to do with my life and I don't exclude immigration, as there's not much hi-tech, if at all, hi-tech stuff going on there. I used to think that engineering was for me, I love programming for instance and I feel I'm very good at it. I'm working on a software project for a year in my spare time and I absolutely love it, but it isn't a thing I would like to do for the rest of my life, I have bigger ambitions Which brings me to a point, maybe I love working on this project that much, because it's my product and my idea I don't think I would like so much working as a programmer for someone. And I think it is the same way I feel about engineering. The course is also throwing me off a little. Now I see what engineering really is, I absolutely hate CAD classes, we haven't even get to CAD yet, only drawing on papers for now. Correct me if I'm wrong, but now I think that is what engineering is, a lot of designs, drawing (I know it's in a computer program), but it doesn't make it any less boring to me. Call me a dreamer, but I'd like to start my own business in technology related field later at some point. I just get a feeling that physics is what I need to improve my creative thinking and all the theory of how the world works under the hood could inspire a lot of ideas. And if it wouldn't work out, a job in physics wouldn't be that bad, it seems to me like almost all the cool stuff is done by scientist, rather than engineers, by cool I mean the world-changing stuff. On the other hand engineering gives a broader knowledge, teaches how to apply the science in practice. I also don't know if I'm going to like physics that much. I heard that it's nothing like in high school, that's a little scary, from my own experience I can tell I liked math at high school and I hated it at university. Some of calculus wasn't that bad, only the practical things interested me, like derivatives and integrals, but there were a lot of things, theorems that were purely theoretical. I also absolutely hated algebra. I just hope it wouldn't have it with physics the same way I had with math. I have mechanics now and I like it, so I guess not. It's a hard decision for me, but like I said, I'm much more inclined to take up physics, but I don't know what will I feel about it when I actually study it. I just don't want to think 'I should stay at engineering' one year later. I need some advice from people who have experience. Thanks for taking your time to read this.
