Hello, I am Dario and Im a physics major at the University of Western Ontario. I am in my second year and at the point now where I am questioning what I can do with my degree following university. I am curious as to what careers there would be pertaining to a physics degree. I have the curiosity of switching into an engineering program, or remaining in my current program. I don't know what kind of GPA it would require for me to transfer into an engineering program, but I have a pretty decent one. My curiosity of switching into engineering comes from 1. I am not aware of many options of what you can do with a physics degree after university, what kind of careers are associated with physics etc.; 2. I don't know if I am interested in theoretical or experimental physics. Im unsure if conducting research would be my cup of tea, and; 3. I have a great interest in physics, and engineering would be applying physics (and other areas of science) to design and build objects. I think this would be very interesting in dealing with I have had this conversation with one of my professors but am kind of seeking more professional advice on this. As a physics major we (meaning my professor and I) discussed that with only a BSc in physics you cannot really do much with it. He advised me that I most likely have two options with what I am doing right now to obtain a good job after university. Option 1 would be to remain in my physics major and then get a PhD. He said this option would be decent because there are not many Canadian physicists in Canada, and obtaining a PhD would allow myself to gain a good job working with a university. Option 2 would be if I'm not planning on going for a PhD then switch into engineering, because there is not a whole lot one can do with a normal BSc in physics. However there are problems with both situations. If I was to remain in physics and gain a PhD, I would have to be in school for another 4 years as a graduate. Secondly, with an average in the mid to high 70s I am unsure if I would even be accepted into an engineering program. Lastly, if I was to switch into engineering I would most likely have to begin university at stage one again. That meaning I'd have to be a first year eng student as I do not know if any of the eng and physics programs contain similar or the same courses. If anyone has any thought on this that would be greatly appreciated! This is definitely a hard decision to weigh out by myself and am seeking as much professional advice as possible (obviously I am going to see a counsellor here at my university as well). Thank you!
