Greetings. I just found these forums and hope you guys can shed some light on this for me. I just received my AA degree from a local community college and am finishing up Physics 2 and Calculus 3 so I can move on to the University of Central Florida. I would like to get into the Masters program for Optics at the CREOL college there. (http://www.creol.ucf.edu/). They only have programs for people who have an undergraduate degree in EE or PHY. Here is the dilema. I enjoy both Electrical Engineering and Physics. They both sound equally interesting. I am drawn to some things in one and other things in the other. Frankly, it has been 2 years of hell trying to decide which one to persue. However, the end goal is a Masters in Optics and Lasers. So, what are the benifits of an undergrad in either degree? Is it simple a matter of the EE degree is easier to fall back on and get a job if things go sour? All the people I have spoken to locally have said that... but they are all Engineers and not physicists. So, biased perspectives there. Would one be better than the other in entering the Masters program at CREOL? Thanks for any insight.
