What to choose as my major

  1. Oct 2, 2013 #1
    Hello guys,
    I am a Software Engineer and am planning to do my major (MS) ...
    I like algorithms , mathematics, and have always loved nuclear physics...
    I would love to take quantum computation but job prospects right now are very limited. Howver, I would like to come back to this field for research after I have done my MS, landed up a good job, got financially stable and am done up with all my responsibilities..(you get the meaning i hope..)

    I try my best to follow up with articles on quantum physics and have always been very interested in this field, But I cant figure out what electives I can take that can provide me a good job right now and later i can come back to research in this field..so the university must have excellent research for algo etc because i blv exposure to research is important..and at the same time a great reputation for getting a job..
    I am thinking something along the lines of algorithms, computation and mathematics...Is that the right choice ?

    Now that u know my short and long term goals,
    Please advice me on the best universities for this??
