Computational Mathematics (System optimization)
It will probably be easier to get a job in Microelectronics (Assuming you have at least an MS).
But really, those field are quite different. You'll do better being outstanding at a field you are passionate about than you will choosing a field solely on marketability.
I work in Microelectronics, by the way.
thats awesome, is there a shortage of people in microelectronics?
Sometimes (like right now). Then in a few years there will be a glut. The industry is brutal. But if you're really good, there are opportunities.
But again, go after your passions, while keeping an eye on marketability. If you love circuits, great, because the best workers in microelectronics love the job.
i would love to work for a company like AMD work on GPUs any tips on what branch within ME i should take? and thank you so much for giving me tips.
To work at a place like AMD you'll need to study a lot of digital systems and computer architecture. Make sure you learn a hardware description language such as Verilog or VHDL (preferably both). Also, take as much analog circuits courses as possible. More and more the serial communications between processors and the power management of the processors are limiting advances, and those are both analog problems.
thanks for the invaluable information.
