    Is condensed matter physics the most useful field in physics to study for someone who wants to work in industry (with a B.Sc or M.Sc)?

    I am talking about in the USA for the record.

    what particular area of condensed matter physics?

    as i understand it, some areas (semiconductors and polymers) are hot for careers and others (bio, superconductors, topological insulators) are not.
