I got the Mechanical MEng offer of a top university a few weeks ago. I'm still not sure if I want to peruse a PhD but I do want a job about R&D related to robotics in the future. I'm sure there must be some people in the same situation like me. So here is the problem, can MEng students get R&D jobs in robotics area in the US? Or it is necessary to get a PhD or MS in order to get in such jobs.
I have several specific questions:
How likely can MEng students get into PhD programs of top universities after the MEng program? Comparing with MS students?
For the R&D jobs in robotics area, is PhD required? Or MS students also have a great chance?
Thanks a lot!!!!!
