I'm a freshman in university right now. I originally wanted to do some form of engineering (electrical or mechanical) , but I didn't get accepted to this school's engineering school, and only got in my second choice, which was the science school. So that is where I am now, with my major declared as physics. My original plan was to internally transfer to the engineering school this year. However, now I am not sure if I actually want to do this . For one thing, I really like physics more than I expected. If I stay here, I can get a degree in computational physics, as well as some electives in some other fields I like. I recently found about Systems Engineering, and I like the idea. I like the idea of taking a more big picture approach to solving problems and innovating. My career goals right now are more vague than I hoped, but I want to work in some kind of innovative field like robotics or replacing silicon, and maybe even try entrepreneurship. My more unrealistic dreams/goals would basically be to be the next equivalent of Steve Jobs. I'm not literally expecting or hoping to achieve that, but I think that gives a good idea of what kind of direction I'm looking at. So my question is - do I have the right idea? Can I complete a physics BS and move directly to a masters program in systems engineering? And if I do this, will I be able to do the kind of innovative work that I'm aiming for?
