I'll have to make a decision between them pretty soon. I will study in U. S. for a Master's Degree in mechanical engineering if my finances allow me, but i cannot determine if i should also pursue a phd. My current advisor in industry told me that if I get a phd, i'll probably become overqulified in the eyes of American industry, so the only job line will be academia or kinds like NASA. Since American "top secret" industrial corporations won't be eager to hire a guy trying to get a green card, that question is off the table (or is it? you tell me.). I heard that engineers in industry make around $100000 a year, how much academicians make then? Is it close? I really want to work at the cutting edge of the technology, but you know, i cannot pass a paycheck of 100 grands for a year :D Any suggestion?

But, Working in Industry fucking sucks so fucking hard. Thats why they get so much money.
Just do a nice job with a Phd with a cushy lifestyle, No need to be busting your fucking balls every day in a piece of dogshit job in industry, I wish i had done better in school and not ended up in Industry :/0
