I understand this question is not strictly academic, but what I hope to find here is some feedback from someone who already had similar experience.
I live and study Electronics Engineering in Parma, a small town in northern Italy. I'm considering to move in order to get my Master Thesis done. Now, as far as I understand, in USA the masters are somewhat different from what we have here in Europe. To the point that "Master Thesis" is not even a thing there, in fact I'm not able to find proposals online.
That said, I have friends who have done "gradated level" work there and validated it as a thesis back in Europe. So let's just assume I can get a place somewhere and be able to go there.
I immediately understand I will have to pay for my staying and the chances to get a salary are really narrow.
So, as per the title: can I work there (like weekend jobs) while studying?
Any help would be appreciated.
