    which one to choose???DSP/Commun/control/embed

    hi...i have found this forum very much resource ful.
    i am in a dilemma of chosing my specialization for ms (in US).I am very much interested in mathematics and also very good at especially calculus and algebra.After MS i will be looking for job which is challenging, handsome salary(hate paper work,reporting kind of work).I am also good in MATLAB simulations did 3 projects in UG.I did some research came with following options.
    1.signal processing------very much interested
    2.communications--------partially work experience in this field
    3.control systems-----------very much interested
    4.embedded systems--------no idea what is this?
    5.comp architecture and comp hardware--------kinda hate it in my UG courses
    6.VLSI and analog systems----------slightle interested
    7.Micro electronics---------again no idea what is this word means.if its advanced form of microprocessors then interested

    out of these i am much interested in siganal processing and contral systems.Embed systems i have no idea what it is?the thing i want to know is what kind of jobs these fields offering.which one to chose keeping job prospects in priority.
    thanks in advance.

    If signal processing and communication is your thing, you should try those things only. I would advice going against VLSI/analog/microelectronics, which will bore you.
