Hi all, i just transferred into physics from chem eng. I'm at a school that has good ties with some large tech companies like intel, amd, nvidia, ibm... i would have elected to transfer into ECE (electrical/computer engeering) but my marks weren't high enough. i figure physics would give a good platform for my interests and perhaps give me a different approach/experience to problem solving. my interests lie in VLSI design and most recently TFTs (thin film transistors). I'm wondering if anyone's been through the route of BSc physics ---> MASc (i think is equiv. to MSc) or MEng ECE? wondering if someone could share their (or someone they know) experience. i've looked into it in some detail. I figure i try to take what ECE courses i can that correspond to my interests (though it will be really difficult as they're quite stingy non-engineering students taking engineering courses) and take some catchup courses prior to masters. I figure i should get involved somehow with perhaps IEEE or the ASIC design club (though i think they are now defunct). Are there better ways of say beefing up my resume? i'm thinking of picking up HDL's and something like perl/python and see how far i can learn it. do employers pick up on that sort of initiative? I don't know much about TFTs but it seems like there's still some good potential in the field to grow. Anyone know about the job prospects in this field? sorry, i know it's a lot of questions but i hope someone with some relations to this could advise a bit. thanks a million!
