I am getting ready to graduate with my BSEE in June and am thinking ahead to my masters. I am not to sure that a masters in EE would be such a wise idea considering the market for engineers right now. I am thinking that it would be wise to diversify and get my masters in something else.
What would be a good degree that would give me versitility and an edge in the market? Or would it be wise to go forward and get my MSEE?
I am thinking maybe an MBA or some sort of management degree would work well with a BSEE to give me more to offer an employer. It seems that a MSEE would keep me in the same boat as I am with just my BSEE and would pigeon hole me into an “engineering” job and limit my chances to make money in other fields.
If I was to go for an MSEE I would want to specialize in power engineering or control theory. But I don’t want to limit myself to EE. At least I don’t think.
Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the field and wish that it was more stable but the fact of the matter is that I have to make enough money to make my time in college worth it.
