So I am currently a EE student. I really want to get my masters degree in either EE or physics. I want to do work is solid state devices. Here at my college i could do work either through the EE or do it through the physics department because they have a strong solid state program. My question is would it be better to get the Master degree in Electrical engineering with a focus of SS or do it though the physics department? I am just not sure that the Master degree in physics would be a useful as the EE master degree. What is your thoughts on this.

i am in a similar situation, so let us hope someone can guide us . Our world is currently so competitive that almost anyone has a Master degree, sad but true

You may want to look for certain programs that focus on your chosen specialty. I had a BS in Physics, but received an MS in Engineering through a program that was offered jointly through physics and engineering (as an "Electro-Optics" program... where I worked on solid state lasers). Applied physics programs might be an option. For employability, perhaps try to find a program that works with a national or military lab or has close ties to local industry.

Thanks

My biggest fear would be a Masters in Physics would not be as useful as a master in EE even though both would be studying Solid State.
