University suggestions

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

I'm looking at places to continue my education after I finish the master's, including places across the pond. Are there any schools you guys would recommend?

What do you want to study specifically?

The top ten will be different for every subject.

Any hints from the research papers you've used in your masters?

The irony is I'm actually researching universities to get an idea of what I want to specialize in so I can prepare prior to applying. Usually you can read the bio of the professors and get a great idea of their forte. If I find one where the strengths of the dominant professors match with my interests, I'll have a goal to work toward.

I'm not entirely sure I want to continue with school, so I'm researching first to see if the path will lead me someplace I want to be.

You should maybe be investigating Uni's with good links to industry too.

Often (I can only speak for the UK) you will find that researchers will also have a company to take their own research into.
