    Hi Kuong. The short answer is: yes, you can still be a good engineer even if you don't "understand physics". The degree to which an engineer uses physics varies depending upon the type of engineering and career. For example, if you are a civil engineer ...

    Hello Kris, Does the school that you were accepted to offer courses in engineering or the sciences? If so, you could try to take a class in that while pursuing your original degree. That would allow you to test the waters with engineering. If after ...
