I'm an international student and I'm going to attend a U.S. college this fall, and in order to decide which college I should pick, I have to make my decision whether or not I would like to major in engineering because the college that I want to attend doesn't have engineering, while the other one does. So, I like physics and I'm really good at it. I'm also really good at math, but not a math genius though. If I'm to pursue physics, I'm planning to get a PhD from a top research institution and then work in research or academics (I have no idea how easy it is for someone with a PhD). I've been studying physics at high school from textbooks like "Physics for scientists and engineers" and "Haliday physics." and i have no problems. I'm just worried that maybe I won't like the complicated math when it comes to tensors and string theory and so... (it's just a concern) As for mechanical engineering, I have no idea how the job market is like but I hate looking after machines and fixing the parts. I also don't like the details of the machines.If there's something I like about mechanical engineering, then it's something like designing rockets, planes, and cars using the principles of motion and fluidity in creative ways. I, however, don't want to end up copying and pasting with small changes because that's what the employer wants and so. Is it easy to get a job where I can creatively use the physics principles to come up with ideas for designs? I also enjoy solving mechanics problems including motion at high school. I'm also considering computer science since I love programming and I'm curious about AI. What do you think? Is physics the right major for me? or mechanical engineering? have you been through this before?
