    Hey there guys, I'm currently a second year Mechanical Engineering student (expecting to graduate in 2015).

    I'm wondering if my Mechanical Engineering knowledge would be enough to study Physics for my Masters; if not I would consider doing a second Bachelors in Physics. After all even if I do get in, I certainly wouldn't be at the same level compared to other students who have done a Bachelors in Physics.

    I would also like to know if Physics learned in a Physics course is much more difficult than that learnt in a Mech Eng course, and how is it different?What would be the main core subjects and other subjects in a typical Physics course? For example Mechanics and Thermofluiddynamics would be core subjects while Materials Science and EEE would be secondary.

    I got a 2:1 for my first and second year if that helps.
    Thanks for reading my entry and I would really appreciate your input!
