This is my first post here, so first of all, I will introduce myself. I'm a student currently living in Spain (been here my whole life). Next year I will start college, and I have the dilemma between physics and engineering. I know there are a lot of post around here about this topic, but I feel like none of them really represent my situation. The question for me is, in which job will I have more things to do? Let me explain. I love both physics and engineering (as far as I can tell..). I care about what i will be doing after I graduate. I don't want to work in the private sector doing some calculations for a boring business for 20 years, I want to innovate, I want a job where I can use what i know, a dynamic job. I have talked to some graduate physics students and the works they have had are pretty boring, but I also have talked to someone with a Doctor in chemistry, and she told me that i had to pursue the physics career, that being a doctor in Physics would open many doors for me. I have talked to some engineers as well, and they really get my full attention when they tell me how dynamic their jobs are. So far the thing i found the most interesting, is everything related to the nano scale, I really see myself working in something related to it. So, having in mind that i want to be a Doctor, have a dynamic job, preferably in anything nano related, which path should I pursue? Becoming an engineer or becoming a physicist?. Please let me know if I failed to explain myself, English is not my first language. Thanks for your attention.
