I've just been accepted to both my first and second choice universities as an engineering student. One of them requires me to state my preferred engineering specialty. Right now, I'm tossed up between the third biggies: Electrical, Mechanical or Civil. Here's the thing. The whole concept of applying physics to real life situations fascinates me. I'm taking an AP physics course(calculus based) right now and it's really interesting and I'm not finding too much trouble. I'd love a challenge. I heard that EE is by far the most mathematically challenging major. But it also involves the most amount of computer-based courses. I'm not very much into computers at all. I'd like to study the most amount of actual science with the least amount of "other" courses like programming and such. Which field do you think best suits me? Oh, and I don't like chemistry much either. Am I better off with a pure physics degree? But I fail to see any career prospects with a physics degree.
