Hello everyone! My school has a rather odd math major - it just so happens to perfectly suit me. I studied engineering for the first 2 years of school, as well as a little bit of CS, and all my classes fit perfectly in this major "Mathematics - Engineering/physics track." I should be able to graduate in four years with this major, which is a big bonus. Besides that, I was planning on either doing a basic applied math major or physics major, but both of these take 5 years total since I have been doing engineering.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here's what I'll have taken in my engineering/physics math major:

Prerequisites:

Calc Sequence + diffeq

Physics I-III

Prob & stats for engineers

Intro to discrete structures

Computer Science I

Math Classes:

Mathematical Modeling

Vector & Tensor Analysis

Appl of Complex Variables

Applied Boundary Value Problems I and II

Advanced Calculus I

Linear Algebra

Numerical Calculus

Physics/Engi Classes:

Electricity & Magnetism I, II

Physics Mechanics

Thermal & Statistical Physics

Wave Mechanics I, II

Engineering Mechanics - Statics + Dynamics

Solid Mechanics

So that's it. The reason I'm taking this major is because I really don't know what I want to do for grad school, but I'm hoping a URE should clear things up by senior year. If I were to dislike my physics classes, I could switch to all upper level mechanical engineering classes instead, but I doubt I would do that.

The question is, are these classes enough to get me into physics/engineering/math/other science grad school? What if I wanted to go into mathematical economics? Earth sciences? Astronomy? Would my wide background be looked upon favorably or unfavorably? Could I make up for some of the classes I was missing as prerequisites while in grad school?
