    To all optoelectronic graduates/students:

    Which is of more importance in the industry -

    - Microprocessors
    - Digital Logic Circuits
    - Passive Pulse Circuits
    - Active Pulse Circuits

    Any advice would help greatly !

    I don't know, but I am interested in getting into optoelectronics in grad schol myself (dual major in EE and applied physics) so I would like to know what is most attractive to industry. My goal is to become a university professor, but it would be nice to specialize in an area that is coveted by industry so that I have a backup plan, or I can go into consulting on the side when I get a PE while I teach (from what I hear, consulting pays big money if you specialize in the right field)

    I'm not sure why you would focus on circuits if you're doing optoelectronics. I think optoelectronics is mainly about how to build better devices by exploiting material properties, device structure, etc...
