So I'm currently a freshman physics major considering swapping out to forensic bio/pathology. Very different. I'm having trouble for one main reason (besides that I'm only a freshman). I don't want to go into academia. I want an industry job. I now realize that's what engineering is completely for, even if I got a physics degree with a comp sci minor it would probably get me less. I enjoy physics as a topic, but not a career. Now for the forensic major, I would love that career but I''m doubtful I'd do super duper well in classes. I'm a little scared, I suppose, of memorization as opposed to problem solving.
So to you physicists out there, are there industry careers out there? Are they plentiful?
I'm really just looking for personal stuff, I've done research but it hasn't helped much.
Any input is cool! Thanks!
