I have a few questions regarding how the future looks like for a few master degrees I'm thinking about to choose in a few years. I might be out pretty early because it's 3,5 years left until I'm going to have my masters degree, but I like to plan ahead and know what is waiting for me. First of all I can tell you I'm going to do my bachelors in Engineering Physics for 3 years and I'm going to start this coming autumn (2012). And after that, it's time for the masters degree as mentioned. However, I am aware of probably low salaries and such, but I'm not learning physics for money I'm doing it because of a very high interest in it. So don't worry about about. The masters I'm thinking of are (also posting a course plan if you want to know what they are really teaching the students): Applied Physics http://www.chalmers.se/en/education/programmes/masters-info/Pages/Applied-Physics.aspx Materials Engineering http://www.chalmers.se/en/education/programmes/masters-info/Pages/Materials-Engineering.aspx Nanotechnology http://www.chalmers.se/en/education/programmes/masters-info/Pages/Nanotechnology.aspx Wireless, Photonics & Space Engineering http://www.chalmers.se/en/education...Wireless-Photonics-and-Space-Engineering.aspx However spending time looking at these links is not a must, I just brought them up in case you wanted to know more, an even more detailed programme content can also be found on the links I posted. So how do you think the future will be for learning this in about 5 years? Waste of time or is the future looking bright? Thanks in advance, R.A.
