As a physics major, how much do the classes I take now affect what I can do while working on a masters degree? If I major in chemistry and not computer science, could that make me ineligible for a project I would have otherwise wanted to work on?

I am majoring in physics and minoring in chemistry, and I am worried that I will not have enough engineering or computer science education by the time I graduate, since those two disciplines are tied so closely to physics. #physics

VGG-Consulting’s Answer

If you already have a project in mind that you would like to work on, then I would suggest to go and talk about the project with the people who are already working on it. Try to understand what are the skills and the expertise they use currently on the project and what would be needed in the future. This way you can align your studies with the project needs.

Jacob’s Answer

I suggest studying both chemistry and computer science and teach yourself as much as you can on your own. Physics draws a lot on computer science for simulations and calculations and if you want to get into chemical physics or physical chemistry then chemistry is a must.
