    I'm a mechanical engineer. I love physics and I also wanted to be a physicist. I am confused on what to take on my masters degree, physics or engineering? I want to focus on energy production and I've chosen MS Energy Engineering. Do you think I can still contribute on physics even though I'm an engineer and just study physics myself? or I should pursue the MS Physics course even though it would take a long time? If you have any suggestions and other commentaries, I am happy to read it.. thank you.. I wish all of you could help me..

    It depends on what you want to do and where you want to do it. To get an academic placing in physics you still need to do a PHd, than a post doc at a reputable university and and and (and have a lot of luck).

    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
