I am a applied physics major with an emphasis in physical electronics (so basically I take a lot of solid state physics classes with my other normal physics classes), and I go accepted into a program where I start taking graduate classes during my last year of my bachelors (current year) and then I only need to spend one more year in grad school to get a Masters (instead of the typical two). So far I have taken the following electrical engineering classes: -Intro to analog circuits (passive and active components, basics of BJT and FET transistors). -Intro to digital circuits (basic gate circuits). -Intro to signals and systems (Fourier transforms and its properties, root locus, basics of filters) -And two semiconductor physics classes (basics of carrier statistics, devices, MOSFET, MESFET, BJT basics) I am currently enrolled In a graduate semiconductor physics class and currently it is mostly review of my two upper division undergrad classes. I am also enrolled in an IC Fabrication Lab where I go into a clean room and learn how to make devices on a wafer. All of this leads me to think I should do a semiconductor focus and possibly a semiconductors job, but I don't know if that's even what I want to do, I don't even know exactly what I would be doing or who even hires semiconductor people besides the obvious Intel and Samsung, and i even hear the those jobs are really on the decline in most of the US (and if possible i would really love to stay in the Bay Area, California).I don't feel like i have enough experience in all fields of EE to really decide. I think my problem is that I am interested in too many things. I am also a computer science minor and can easily see myself going into a computer science related job (although I don't like computer science jobs -programming- as much as I like EE). I see a lot of jobs for asic designer, but is that something that someone in semiconductors would do? Or is that a different subfield? I guess I am just wondering what are the current or near future hot positions in EE (in bay area) and what would I do in each subfield. And what would I focus on in school to get that job? I am trying to find out what jobs actually have me doing if i focused on each subfield.
