  1. I am a engineering graduate who wants to apply for a masters in condensed matter physics. I have written a first draft of my SOP. I need some guidance regarding it. It would be great if someone can help me out regarding it. I can DM you if you are interested. Thanks in advance!
  2. I recently received admits from the University of British Columbia for a Master's in Physics, and from ETH Zurich for a Masters in Quantum Engineering. I am really happy with my options, but there are differences between them which have made this choice a tough one: At UBC, I'll be fully funded, and have also secured an additional scholarship that would entail more funding and an internship at a Canadian company working in quantum computing (QC). From what I have read online, the job prospects in physics in particular(industry or otherwise) are much better in North America than in Europe. At ETH, I couldn't apply for the ESOP/ETH-D scholarships in time, and will have to bear the gigantic living costs (the tuition fees at ETH is very affordable)in Zurich on my own. However, I will be applying to third party sources for fellowships, and am anticipating some respite via them. The program will also allow me to pursue an internship in QC for a semester, which will help my finances as well. I am torn between which uni to choose. UBC is ranked between 30-50 in physics from what I have seen, whereas ETH is consistently ranked within the top 10. Both institutes are doing very good research in the areas of my interest, and I have found supervisors I am excited to work with at both. I see myself pursuing a PhD in atomic/molecular physics in the future, with the end goal of working in the RnD divisions of quantum computing startups and companies, or if I get lucky, getting tenure track in a related field. I would really appreciate any inputs that help me make an informed decision. Edit: I will be graduating with a bachelors degree this June, and will start my Masters at either institute in September.
  3. Hi everyone. I majored in physics in undergrad, and really enjoyed the research I did with quantum information and quantum circuits. So, in addition to applying to physics PhD programs, I applied to Princeton electrical engineering and was luckily accepted. I am now deliberating between pursuing a physics PhD at Caltech or pursuing an EE PhD at Princeton, with a focus at either place on quantum information and hybrid quantum systems. I was wondering if you all could provide some insight on EE vs physics. I understand there is a lot of overlap, but at some point there are concrete differences between different departments. Also does your PhD field matter or is it really just important what research you do? My end goal is teaching and research in physics, would an EE PhD make that harder?
