工程師要如何成為物理學家 ?

成為物理學家是我自小夢想

但各位也知道台灣教育跟父母觀念,我大學念工程科系

在即將畢業之際,不禁想到未來

想說人終究要追自己的夢想

在念書時,工程師跟科學家學的東西非常接近

所以不禁想問各位,工程師要怎樣轉變成物理學家?(或其他科學家?)

如果說研究的話,那研究跟自己學習不相關(如我讀土木,我去研究核能)

也會被學術界承認嗎?

希望能聽聽見各界看法~~謝謝

你建議我考物理研所,要怎準備?如補習還是重考之類的

(你可以用回答的,其實講得很好)

照你這樣說,好像工程師跟物理學家沒什麼太大差別

但另我茫然的是該如何去研究、達成目標,研究跟我所學不相關的也ok嗎?

像我讀土木,電學磁學方面幾乎一竅不通,這樣也可以去研究那方面嗎?

(也建議你用回答的,英文我也可接受)

    physicist or engineer are all scientists. Their knowledge are interconnected. Therefore the point is not being physicist or engineer, but is what you study. In EE, there is a branch called "optical engineer". It is the same as in physics.

    Therefore, if you get into the theoretical area of optics, you will be physicist, if you are in the practical application, then you will be engineer. Therefore, the point is not the term: physicist or engineer, but what are you doing ?

    Ok, since you like me to answer this question in more detail, let me give a little more about these subject.

    I am Mechanical Engineer (Solid Mechanics), so let use my own expertise to explain how they are related.

    From junior high, you study Physics, in it, the major part of Physics is Mechanics. It studies both kinematics (how object moves) and kinetics (how the movement of object related to the external force, Newton Law of Motion). You studies the same thing in Senior High School. When you enter the college, if you are Engineering major, you will need to study Physics again, but it will introduce "Calculus" into Physics. Then as a Mechanical Engineer, you need to study:

    Statics

    Dynamics

    Strength of Material

    Mechanism

    Fluid Mechanics

    Heat Transfer

    In the Graduate school (as in Solid Mechanics), you will study

    Elasticity

    Advanced Dynamics

    Heat Conduction

    Thermal elasticity

    Plasticity

    Viscoelasticity

    .... and so on

    The reason I give you a list like this is I will explain how these subjects are related:

    You study Newton Law of Motion (which assume the object is rigid, non-deformable) in Physics, it will later expand it into Elasticity (which deals with small deformation of a deformable object), then when you introduce the heat to the object, it will lead to Thermal Elasticity (but you need to study heat conduction first). Since, Elasticity only deal with small deformation, therefore, there is another Elasticity that deal with large deformation. As the term "elastic", it mean the deformation can recover, When the deformation is permanent, then it leads to Plasticity. OK, I think I already give you some idea how these courses are related.

    2011-12-11 03:08:53 補充:

    You are in Civil Engineering, you will study structure analysis, it is similar to strength of material in Mechanical Engineering, but it is in MORE detail. Therefore, my point is, all the knowledge are interrelated with each other, you can certainly go from civil into electrical, or even Physics.

    2011-12-11 03:09:36 補充:

    I think the point is not where you are now, but whether you have the mind (heart) to go to where you want to be.

    2011-12-11 03:11:42 補充:

    continue in "opinion".

    2011-12-11 03:14:32 補充:

    If you have the ability to study Civil engineering, you will have the same ability to study other different field. After all, knowledge is only a matter of logical reasoning, digging the truth and discovering.

    2011-12-11 03:17:05 補充:

    A good scholar is because they put their mind to think what people can not think, discover what people cannot find. It is not because they are born with those knowledge. So, I wish you luck in your dream !

    在你還沒做出成果時,除了學歷之外就沒什麼可看。當你做出成果後,不會有人在乎你的學歷。

    2002 年諾貝爾化學獎得主田中耕一,最高學歷是「日本東北大學工學院電氣工程學科」學士,印象中是諾貝爾獎歷年來學歷最低者...

    不過我建議你去考個物理研究所吧。

    2011-12-09 22:30:07 補充:

    從你的發問可以看出來你對學術領域了解並不多,所以我會強烈建議你去唸研究所,不僅僅學習專業知識,更重要的是有人指導你學術研究是如何進行的。

    至於準備方法,假如你在學成績優異,可以考慮用推甄方式,甚至直接申請外國學校,先進研究所再補修專業科目(但這要看系所規定)。準備考試科目的話,補不補習其實看個人讀書習慣,台灣的考試制度你也知道,做題目的熟練度勝於一切,但不要因此忽視了自我學習的能力,這項特質對打算踏入學術圈的人很重要。

    我大學主修電子工程,有位同班同學到大二才發現自己對純數學非常感興趣,雖然轉系沒有成功,後來靠著自修、選修相關課程,應屆考上數學研究所,現於某個國立大學唸博士學位。我自己則是

    2011-12-09 22:30:30 補充:

    我自己則是到非常晚才發現自己更喜歡計算機領域,畢業幾年後之後才自修相關科目考上資工研究所。我們都沒有補習。
