Physics + computer engineering double Major-How does the future look like?

<p>I'm an international student from India and I'm hoping to double major in Physics and engineering(with concentration on computer eng) at Trinity College this fall. How does the future look like for me? I'm also hoping to go to a grad school(hopefully at MIT), get a PhD and ultimately settle down in a position in a company's R&D department. What are the job prospects and pay scale for such a combination?</p>

<p>The future looks like wall-to-wall homework. Your physics classes and comp eng classes will not overlap. I suggest you consider pairing physics with a cs minor instead of a comp eng major. Head to the engineering forum on this site and search the threads there, where this has been discussed.</p>

<p>Fwiw I’m a physics+cs guy.</p>

<p>What about Physics + Electrical Engineering? And why a minor and not another major?</p>

<p>Hey I’m hoping to major in Physics+CS too! I’m waiting for RD results to come out. My dream job would be to research on Computational Particle Physics… is this a viable idea?</p>
