My Bachelors in Physics is starting up next year, and I'm (already) thinking about graduate programs to pursue afterwards. This might seem premature, but I'm several years older than most B.sc students, have spent some years in the workforce, as well as previous uni, so I like to look ahead and see where things lead. I'm very interested in the field of Engineering Physics. Two highschool friends studied engphys, one now works for a manufacturer of cyclotrons and the other does research building digital microscopes to monitor neuron activity. Not that I will do either, but it looks to have some variety of outlets and I like the sounds of applied research (i.e. paid, probably better work-life balance than academia). I'm writing for advice or suggestions on - composition or makeup of coursework that I do. E.g., try to take a bunch of chemistry as well? - type of research exp matter, or just that I have it? It would be all physics related, but there is possibly some more "engineering" or applied than others. - I'm in a 3 year bachelors pogram (in Norway) - will this seem like a disadvantage to not have had 4 years? If I want, I can extend it to 4 years by taking additional course work, e.g. more math, chemistry, or biology or what have you. Also, I'm looking at grad schools in Canada (where I was born) for financial reasons. If anybody knows something about the Engphys programs at UBC, Waterloo, Toronto, Queens, or other Cdn uni's, glad to hear your input.
