I need some help please - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I am currently in a physics Ph.D. graduate program deciding what to do with my life. I have an oppurtunity to do research and get a Ph.D. in RF design in the engineering department. Would a Ph.D. be any more benficial than a Masters for finding jobs in industry? However outsourcing is scaring me very much. I am also rethinking this career path and just becoming a dentist.

Hello SmileyGuy,

Education is a great asset, but it is even greater when combined with industrial experience. If you have a chance to be involved in a research project within a company, this would help you improve your career.

If you are armed with Ph.D and some industrial experience then the sky is really the limit for you. I am sure there are plenty of opportunities for you to pursue some internship or do your dissertation/research sponsored by a company.

Don't consider to become a dentist, maybe the salary is higher, but taking out teeth all day long, oh well...

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
