I am a new member to this forum.
After reading so many stories from succesfull and unsccesfull people,
i think i found a right place to ask for a good suggestion.
am going to graduate next month from DTU (Technical University of Denmark).
I did my specialization in RF and Microwave circuits, and did my project
on MMIC Mixer design for CW radar at 10GHz.
I am willing to
work either in USA or Europe in the RF field. I am interested in either
Board level or IC design. I would like to know the job opportunities
in this field and the approach for applying the companies.
have also got an offer to work in IT field in USA but, owing to my interest
in RF, i am considering to take RF as my career. Is it a good idea to
denounce my first offer from IT field ?
One more important thing,
How the EU degrees are rated in USA ? Do they consider these MSC degrees
from EU as equivalent to USA degrees when applied for a job ? or they
dont prefer ?
Thanks in advance,
Unexperienced Hardware Engineer

I can only tell you that the chances for beginners today are very
hard. Most of the companies required at least 2 years of experiences.
What could help you as a beginner is if you have high grades.
Concerning degrees I assume that you have a MSc degree, this will
be equivalent to the MSEE degree in USA. Does DTU provide practicum
semster/s during the studies (Like in Germany or Switzerland)? If yes
this will increase your chances to find employment even as a beginner
since you have some practical experience, even if limited.

Dear Mr. IR,
Thank you for your suggestion after long
waiting. Unfortunately DTU has no practicum semesters. But, I am doing
my Master Thesis in collaboration with a company in Denmark (www.wiebel.dk).
I hope this will help me to some extent in getting calls for the interview.
Thanking you once again,
