    I looked myself at the opportunities to do an MSc in a UK/Canada/US top 20 school. Problem is, for most an MSc is what you get when you leave the PhD track prematurely.
    I myself am in an 3 yr BSc 2 yr MSc place and I was looking at doing my MSc in a top school and then return for the PhD to my home country. Well, problem is that it doesn't usually work out as for pure science at top schools BSc -> PhD. and doing a normal PhD after a top school MSc is also said to be a waste.

    I will add that MIT does not have a masters program in EE--only Ph.D.

    A place with a good masters program that is a bit more realistic to a above average student from out of country would be Cal Poly SLO's masters program for electrical engineering. I know the head of the department, it is a good program and it focuses a bit of fiber optics.

    Not all of which even offer a EE degree at all, and not all of which offer a terminal MSEE. Which is why the obsession with rankings that one sees from certain parts of the world is just silly.
