Jumping Ship

  1. Dec 10, 2012 #1
    Just finished with my B.S.M.E. and now my M.S.M.E. and have been considering a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. I've been offered research opportunities in both the mechanical and electrical engineering departments, so really it's up to me to decide.

    Can anyone put an industry spin on what I am considering? Would those in industry prefer to see a student with a diversified background (both mechanical and electrical) or does that make me a jack of all trades, master of none?

    I think things are converging where mechanics and electronics are coming together in robotic design for example. Our university even teaches course on mechatronics. So I think you're in a good position for future opportunities.
