Hey,

I have struggled on this for around one month - which Ph.D. program I should attend. I am admitted to both EE at Columbia and BME at Yale.

Both of the program focusing on the neural signal processing. The Columbia one is more "circuit heavy" which focusing on the circuit design for neural stimulation and acquisition. The Yale one is more traditional - brain mapping and neuroimaging, which would more focus on signal processing and actual understanding of the neural pathway.

Both projects have parts that I love and parts I don't love - most likely half and half: I love the idea of neural stimulation and acquisition through circuit but I would like to spend my Ph.D. in understanding the neural pathway behind it.

I know Yale's engineering program is not that good but I do not know what is the situation actually (how bad/good) looks like compared to Columbia.

I would appreciate any advice/suggestion/comment. Any of those would be really helpful for me :-)

I have the impression that neither school has "super great" EE/BME program. I could be wrong.

Here's the question everybody would ask you first. Career choice: academia, industry, or other?
