i've grown an increasing interest in both engineering, physics, and computer science. i haven't been able to separate myself with regards to studying how to program 3DCG, networks, database tree shit. same goes for physics due to condensed matter, solid state, QM, solitons, superconductors. then engineering for being able to do R&D for applications of these areas.

what can i do that lets me sort of pursue all three in one linear pathway in academia? can i do a mechanical engineering bachelors, get a physics masters, then a phd in computer science? or would i be laughed at for even thinking that's remotely viable due to prereqs? i'm kinda torn here.

like, none of the areas of study i'm interested in are under the graduate level. Induction heating, ion assisted film growth, lattice gauge theories, polymer engineering, chemical kinetics, viscoelasticity, sine gordon model...the list goes on. i have nothing but grad books on these areas and my undergrad just comprises of stuff like real analysis, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and mechanics in the physics side. the CS side has stuff i already know, be it data structures, assembly, discreet math. then engineering which seems to have a ton of courses in CAD and MATLAB, but i already have personal skills in that too.

i just don't feel like i'd be spending my course space wisely in either program. i'd want to learn stuff i couldn't learn on my own, like plasma physics, nonstandard analysis, large cardinals, differential geometry, and then try to do research on the grad level that sort of integrates each area.

Get the undergraduate major that covers most of the fundamentals you need for understanding the more complex graduate/doctorate topics. The more in-depth your fundamentals is the better.

Also, interests change overtime. By the time you're considering what your undergraduate thesis is, chances are that's when you'll actually be solidifying your path. That's the time you can make a more efficient decision as to what masters/PhD you want.

Although chances are you'll end up working in a McDonald's by day, then making a dirty bomb in your parent's basement by night, with your current level of autism.

Fo' zozzle

Do you really need all that spoon feeding? Try learning them on your own. Especially CS since it's so very easy.
