Assalam o Alaikum to all,

I am planning to apply for MS in SOC Design from Linkoping University, Sweden for Fall 2008. I completed my computer engineering from NED last year and want to pursue the field of VLSI Design. I would like to know, from the respected seniors, whether I am right in my decision. Also I am applying to the M.A.Sc program of University of Toronto. Any suggestions as to which one is better.

To my knowledge, University of Toronto is better known than Linkoping. In picking a university, name recognition is always a factor. Besides, you'll probably feel a lot more at-home in Canada than in Sweden. Proximity to US would also bring better industry relationships with big tech giants in the US. If I were you, I'd prefer a US university for this purpose, if a US visa was not an issue. Good Luck with whatever you decide.
yes i agree that University of Toronto is well known and proximity with US would be an advantage. But i have come to know from past SOC Students of Linkoping that this program is funded by Intel and secondly I don't have plans to settle in US or Canada. I am looking to come back to Pakistan once I complete my masters.
