I am interested in doing a PhD from a third tier school in Electrical Engineering Ranked about in the 60's in North America.
I have degrees (Bachelors, Masters) from a Top 20 North American School.
Is this advisable or even worth it ?
The supervisor is not very well known in the industry in this field but is somewhat known in academia in this field.
In my field, companies will only hire from Top 20 schools.
I would like to stay in academia after graduating after being in industry for a few years.
So is this going backwards then ?
