First of all, is a course in Nanotechnology or Nanoscience worth it or is it just a lot of hype? What can I do after a masters in Nanotech/science? Is it better to do it in UK or in USA? USA has only two colleges that offer this course, namely Rice and SUNY-Albany. But, there are a lot of colleges that offer it in the UK. Which is better? More importantly, what are my job prospects after a Masters degree? If I do go abroad to do it, I would be taking a heavy loan that I would need to pay back. So the important thing is, how much of it is really worth it? Are jobs available after a masters course in nanotech? or are they just reserved for PhDs? I would greatly appreciate it if I could get some advice on this. I'm really confused by the whole thing. Googling for answers has made me only ask more questions, so I thought I would ask you guys! :D Thanks for any help on the same.
