EE senior electives - need advice

  • #1
dont know if this is the right forum, but...

For my undergraduate degree I have to take three senior electives of my choice. There are 38 courses in 13 concentration areas, but I only have interest in a handful;

-------------------------------------------------------------

Electromagnetics

- Antennas
- Electromagnetics I


Controls and Robotics

- Control Theory I
- Control Theory II
- Mechanics and Control of Robotic Manipulators


Power Engineering

- Introduction to Power I
- Introduction to Power II
- Introduction to Power III


Circuit Design

- Micro and Nano Electronics Device Fabrication
- NanoElectronics & NanoTechnology (my uni is still experimenting with this class)
- VHDL Design
- VLSI Design I
- VLSI Design II


Microprocessors

- Microcomputers
- Advanced Microprocessors
- Intelligent Robotics (more of a hobby class, competes in RoboCup (robotic soccer))


Electronics

- Physical Electronics
- Advanced Analog Circuits
- Advanced Digital Circuits


Industrial Controls

- Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)


the remaining areas are:
Optoelectronics and Photonics
Communications
Digital Systems
Global Engineering
CpE Related Courses

Avionics Engineering (big avionics program at my uni)
----------------------------------------------------------------


I was wondering if anyone has any experience in any of these fields and if they could offer some insight.

also, I was curious as to what kind of demand these fields have in the work-place and which fields have a lot of growth potential (nanotech?)

right now, im leaning more towards control (PLC, control theory I & II), but am just as interested in Nanotech and ElectroMagnetics

we are required to take three, but can take more if we can fit it into our schedule (they count towards tech electives too!!)

any advice/information is appreciated

much thanks

My recommendation is nanotechnology. It's new (Exciting) and will start growing like a weed. You will be one of the pioneers. VLSI stuff is also good, but you will need to work hard to come up to speed. The industry is now well established.
Good luck.

is there anyone here that has any experience in the nanotech field or know where I can found out general information in regard to electrical engineering?
