I am just finishing my A.S. in Electrical Engineering Tech. and am looking into bachelor programs. I want to double major in EE and physics. At the University of Iowa they have an applied physics program with a concentration in solid state electronics. I was wondering if solid state electronics is worth pursuing and if electrical engineering is a discipline that is worth going to graduate school for?

Pursue that in which you are interested.

There was a recent discussion here with many positive replies about EE.

I personally am biased towards solid state stuff, as an applied physics major. I think it's awesome so far.

I don't think I can give too much advice though; if it interests you, do it! A background in solid state electronics would, for example, be valuable if you want to work in improving the nanoscale transistors (making them smaller or better) at the cutting edge of research.

Also consider whether you'd like a research position, maybe more scarce and likely requiring a PHD, or engineering type applications and design, likely not.
