Graduate Courses In Thin Film Technology and Engineering

In summary, a student is in their final year of B.Tech Engineering Physics and has found that the curriculum does not focus on the engineering aspect. They are interested in pursuing a career in Thin Film Technology and are seeking advice on promising graduate level courses and necessary preparations. Another person suggests meeting with an advisor to ensure classes align with their research goals.

Hi Everyone,
I am currently doing my final year in B.Tech Engineering Physics. During these 3 years studying this course, I understood that learning Engineering was never the intent of this course in my college.. Faculty were stuffing us with Pure Physics with Applied or Engineering Physics never visible in the curriculum. I have always found modern physics subjects like Quantum Mechanics and Electrodynamics difficult to understand. However there was this one elective that caught my interest: Thin Film Technology. That is one field that I want my make my career in.
My query to experts out here is about promising graduate level courses that are available for this field and what preparations would I have to make to achieve the same. I would be deeply thankful for your guidance.
