Engineering Job prospects in electronics engineering

  1. Aug 29, 2012 #1
    I am a final year student of b.tech (electrical and electronics) at NITK,india. I want to pursue my masters degree in Canada or USA (preferably Canada) with a long term intention of settling down in said countries. I have mainly done projects in the field of robotics,signal processing and AI with sound theoretical . i just wanted to know which of the following fields of courses would be more suitable?

    MS in:
    1. AI
    2. VLSI
    3. SIGNAL PROCESSING
    4. COMMUNICATION NETWORKS
    5. PHOTONICS
    6. NANOTECH
    7. system control

    Obviosly i m looking for a field with good job prospects in those countries. anything related to electrical domain will do.
    P.S: I know i shouldnt have asked such an immature question but lack of jobs for VLSI grads in USA has frightened me a bit.

    Cheers

    I would study the field you feel most passionate about and you feel you can do best. You're far better off being a top-shelf engineer in any field than being a mediocre engineer in a hot field.

    Yeah, the lack of VLSI jobs in the USA is troubling. Sign of the times.
