what kind of program are you interested in taking? here's one i find neat.
>>
>>7789260
Looks like a pretty standard physics program (which is good)

Doing a Master's in AE now, specializing in solid mechanics and composites, but if I ever do a second, Penn State's Master's in Acoustics would be cool

do you think studying mechanical engineering is better than physics? i'm worried about losing the opportunity to have accreditation employment wise, but i'm worried about course selection being redundant since i already know how to use CAD and matlab.

Depends a lot on your goals, honestly. For me (and my family's finances), it was important to get a good-paying job as soon as possible, leaving further education for evening classes, so I went with Mechanical. It got me a great job right away, and I could still satisfy my physics curiosity through electives/extra classes.

If you're sure you want to go the PhD route, and aren't really that worried about employability in the short term, pure physics might be better.

Nice, I want to go there too after I graduate. Working on Physics bachelors atm. May get a MechE minor too.

What kind of career could you get as a physicist
>>
>>7790751
you will hear lots of fantastic things about being a physicist here on /sci/

the sensible thing to do is to ask in your university or something of the like
>>
>>7790773
Can you go into engoneering as a physicist?
>>
>>7790818
if you want to be an engineer, study to become an engineer
>>
>>7790898
but the fields i want to study are solid state/condensed matter. i just want that in an engineering light.
>>
>>7789260
what period of time does your pic cover?
>>
>>7790818
>>7790911
its called Engineering Physics. its essentially a Physics degree that is ABET accredited. your PE makes you an engineer, not so much the engineering degree.
