A general Master's or a bit more specialized?

  1. Jul 22, 2013 #1
    I'm going for a masters in chem eng, and aside from my 6 general courses, I can also take 4 electives. I'd like to take nanotechnology courses, since that is a field that I am very interested in (but isn't my only option). Do you think this is worth it to "specialize" like this? Since I have the general requirements done I don't think I would be unemployable by other areas, but is this good enough for nanotech sectors?

    Unless there is a specific nanotechnology program, i'd say that is the best you can do, so go for it.
