Hi All, I've got a Computer Science undergrad from top 20 US university. I want to move into nanotech research. My CS degree was done through an engineering program. My GRE scores are good (1400+), but my GPA suffered a bit during my last year do to a family trauma (from 3.5 to 3.0). I have been programming in the special effects and aerospace engineering fields for five years. Ideally, I would like to stay in California. I've been doing some reading on UC Riverside, as it has an NNI research center. Would a masters with excellent grades and research there prepare me well for a PhD? Also, can anyone comment on Louisiana Tech's Nanotech program? Thanks!
