I'm a sophomore EE student in US. When I was little, I imagined myself creating robots and other cool stuff, and that stuck through high school and into college. And now, I have been thinking about dropping EE and going with physics, which is what really interests me. I guess I've been a bit disillusioned by the application only nature of engineering. I was originally going to double major, but it just seems like a waste of time, especially if i want to go to grad school afterwards anyways. My parents (they pay my tuition so I can't ignore them) want me to spend an extra year to get both degrees, then go to grad school for either while working as an EE (they still don't believe that schools pay you to go to grad school), which seems counter productive to me because that would take way too long and would be much harder to pull off. My question is: is there an advantage to having and EE degree along with a physics degree? It just seems useless to me. Besides, I could just go to grad school for EE if I have a change of heart when I graduate, right?
