Im sorry if this is not the right exchange for this, but I couldn't think of a more fitting one.
Me and my friend are about to finish our Bachelors of engineering in Mechatronics. We both have good grades, internships at a very reputable companies etc.
Now we are thinking of which Masters degree to go for. We both really enjoy Mechatronics for what it is- the combination of embedded, mechanical and electrical engineering.
My friend expressed that he would like to continue this path, BUT:
"mechatronics is too obscure of a degree and recruiters will skip over it just because they wont know what it is".
For this question we assume that I am fully qualified to do the task recruiter wants.
Should this be a concern for a masters degree holder in Mechatronics when applying for industry positions?
