Should I do Power (Energy) or Communications in Grad School for Elec. Engineering?

  1. Jan 27, 2012 #1
    I'm thinking of doing graduate school in the near future and was wondering whether I should go for power or communications for electrical engineering. I am interested in both fields so the work load won't really be a problem. What I am interested in is the pros and cons of doing either field. For example, which of them provides better benefits for getting employment in the industry? Which of them has more research opportunities?

    I have not yet decided whether I want to land in industry or research for my career. For now, I would like to know what either field provides so I can weigh my options. You can be as detailed as you want with your answers just as long as they are helpful.

    Thanks!

    I think Power is more marketable for now.. I have never had of an unemployed power engineer

    Shouldn't you go to grad school to do research?

    In terms of job prospects, I'm not sure which is better than which, both should get you plenty of jobs since they are on demand.
