Main Question or Discussion Point

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.
