<HTML>really? i do not know that. what i have is Chemistry and Environmenal Engineering as BSc. Also i have a MBA. I want to learn some thing like foreign affaris(related to ISO9000 or quality assurance in general), business management, international trade, or maybe history. Can I？</HTML>
<HTML>Environmenal Engineer is easier to get a job. Do you tired
about work? All municipality goverments new are looking for Environmenal Engineer for water management and do not require Ph.D. You better go to get you PE license rather than Ph.D. QA job is for one from college (two to three training without degree, but normally hold the technologist license). University does not teach you that. ISO9000 (currently is ISO9002) is a standard for industry. A firm has to meet its requirement than get its certificate. You have to make sure what you are looking for.
Enjoy your rearch and be patient to complete it with degree. Don't try spend two year and then give it up. Intrest is only for supper rich person.</HTML>
<HTML>As far as I am concerned, Master's is the best degree in the job market, it's always helpful. PhD may cause you some troubles sometimes, especially when you are looking for a position in the industry. Don't expect too much to find a position in the government, security clearance can give you headache. Besides, 4 - 5 years is not trival, even though you may get some fundings to support yourself.
I had spent 50 months to get mine, from 25-30, golden years in my life. That's what I've learnt.</HTML>
