CrazyRedHead95 Posted October 7, 2011 Share Posted October 7, 2011 Alright. I'm 16 years old, and I plan on attending Texas A&M University in one or two years for a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. From what I have heard, here is the line up. M.S. -Theoretical approach (w/ thesis) -More scientific knowledge -Better for working towards a Ph.D. -Better for scientists -One to two years to complete M.Eng. -Applied approach (more class-oriented) -More applied mathematics knowledge -Better for working towards an E.E. or P.E. -Better for engineers -One to two years to complete I eventually want to work on a Ph.D. in physics (specifically astrophysics), but I also want to get a job as an electrical engineer. I want to be both a good scientist and engineer. So, my questions are:Can a B.S. in electrical engineering alone give me enough umph for a Ph.D. in astrophysics?If so, is it wise to get a M.Eng. for plenty of engineering skills and continue to a Ph.D.?Will employers be more impressed with a M.S. than a M.Eng., or vise versa? Well, just let me know please! Any thorough answers would be well appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
