Hi everyone, I am looking for some help. So I have these two admissions for 2017 Fall programs:
USC MS ECE, Wireless Networks track;
UCSB MS ECE, Communications, Control and Signal Processing track;
My undergraduate major was EE with little emphasis on telecommunications. Personally I enjoy studying wireless networks and the Internet of Things, and I plan to look for internships in relevant industries. I realised this after completing my undergraduate final project, when the application was already finished. Now it seems I should try to change my emphasis to Computer Engineering if I go to UCSB. I wonder how hard it would be to transfer a major.
Neither offered me funding or TA position. But maybe there is a chance to work as RA in UCSB?
Although USC has better ranking and matches with my interest, I am worried about the huge amount of enrolled students. I am still considering UCSB for the better studying environment and lower expense.
Any suggestions, comments or ideas are welcome. Thanks.
