bsd Posted January 19, 2018 Share Posted January 19, 2018 As a graduating senior, I major in CS and MechE. I had quite a lot experiences in robotics/drone-related research. I worked in a lab for one year and a half, but unfortunately did not get a meaningful result from the research and also I found myself not suitable for a PhD. And thus I am applying for Master/MEng currently in CS. In my free time, I read a lot about finance and traded stocks. Therefore now, I find this really interesting and would like to find a quant job after my graduate from master. As an international student, it is already difficult to find a job in US and it is even harder for a senior to find a intern during the summer. If I only got into one-year MEng program, this would be my last summer before full-time job, so it is quite important. Now the questions is should I try to get a intern in Robotics or quant during the summer? It's like dream vs reality. I did not have any tangible experiences in quant at all except some analyzing code I wrote for fun, but I do have some sort of experience of working with robotics and some projects that I can show. Adding the stress of waiting for decision really freaks me out. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
