Transitioning from engineering to physics

  1. Apr 11, 2012 #1
    So i just finished my bachelors last year in electrical engineering with honours. However, I have been thinking about it for a while and my real passion is for a career in physics. Would I be able to sign up for a post grad physics course in USA/Canada or in Australia?

    Probably not without some (a lot) of additional undergraduate coursework as a prerequisite.
