I completed my Bachelors and Masters in Mechanical Engineering. I was inclined towards the research from my bachelors. To gain an insight in the market scenario and new technological advancements, I joined an automobile company. Now after having the taste of the new technologies in this field, I want to go back. But I am little confused now which field to opt for higher studies.
I was deeply interested in simulation, mechanics and dynamics. Earlier I was thinking about planetary science or analytical mechanics to choose as my fields for higher studies. But after this job, I came to know that companies are not interested in analytical studies, they go for empirical data and then simulation and get their work done.
Need some guidance on this. Please explicitly throw some light on this matter.
