    I’ll be starting University in September. I won’t pick a Major until winter but I’m going for an Honours Specialization in Planetary Science with a Minor in Astronomy. I’ll see if I want to continue school after that.

    I’d love to get a job working on a robotic planetary/moon exploration mission. Ooo that’d be sweet. :biggrin:

    I have a Ph.D. and am a physics professor.

    I am not even in University yet.

    I'm starting my Physics undergrad in the fall, planning on entering a PhD program after finishing the BS.

    Ph.D. in 2000 (theoretical atomic)

    Got the BS in physics + MBA econ

    work in engineering

    what schools did u guyes attend? Im going into mechanical engineering at Waterloo Canada. I hope to get my PHd.

    Waterloo is a very good school, especially for engineering and math, plus it has a very nice campus. Good luck. It's all co-op for engineering, isn't it?

    I'm starting at UWO (University of Western Ontario) in September. Was somewhat annoyed when I found out they stopped offering Astronomy as a Major, but I'm glad now because I don't think I would have considered Honours Specialization in Planetary Sci. if they had.

    I've got my BA in mathematics and I'm 2 credits from a BA in physics (its a lab). I'm starting my MA in mathematics this fall.

    wow, lots of smart people on this site. I hope to get my engineering degree, and then go into physics. Im doing engineering in order to get a good base.

    I'm in the third year of my physics undergrad at UC Santa Barbara. And wow, I didn't know we had so many PHDs on this site. Thats pretty cool.

    ya kno what they say..

    a scientist can become a good engineer..
    but an engineer will never be a good scientist :biggrin:

    My PhD is in theoretical particle physics/QED (1965) and I'm a retired physics prof.
