Hello everybody, I've just graduated ( this summer ) from the University of Bucharest with a BEng degree in Technical Physics. I'm currently pursuing a masters degree in the physics of atomes and molecules at the same university. I'm also working in a research institute part of a group studying thin films deposition and characterisation. We publish most of our papers in materials science journals, however we are all physicists. As the title suggests, I'm interested in doing a PhD at good european university. After that I might remain in western europe, possibly in industry. What would you advise with regard to:\ 1) The relevance of the degree to getting a job in industry; 2) The amount of theory I would have to master ( my work so far has been solely experimental); 3) The general career outlook in materials science vs. physics in europe.
