I have no clue about the engineering job market as I'm in IT, he's looking for guidance. What kind of job positions would he be eligible for in US and which state(s) is the best for this field? I have attached the undergrad curriculum. He did his Masters with VLSI design focus. His Masters coursework is as below: 1 YEAR 1 SEM SUBJECTS: 1.VLSI SUBJECT 2.CPLD&FPGA 3.CMOS ANALOG 4.CMOS DIGITAL 5.MESD(MICRO CONTROLLER EMBEDED SYSTEMS DESIGN) 6.DIGITAL SYSTEM DESIGN LAB VLSI DESIGN CYCLE 1 1 YEAR 2 SEM SUBJECTS 1.LOW POWER VLSI DESIGN 2.CMOS MIXED SIGNAL CIRCUIT DESIGN 3.CAD FOR VLSI 4.DESIGN FOR TESTABILITY 5.DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSORS AND ARCHITECTURES 6.SYSTEM ON CHIP ARCHITECTURES LAB VLSI DESIGN CYCLE 2 Last 2 semesters were projects. Any help is appreciated. His concern is because his degree is not in Electrical Engineering as it in USA, will it become a big obstacle to get a job in the engineering field.
