@Sven Groot:If the only choices include "Ph.D." then the first one sounds more practical. Blowdart is right on the money with the conveyance of the second title (glorified coax termination practitioner).
@davewill: Well yes, obviously, when doing a Ph.D. the title you get at the end will include "Ph.D."
@Sven Groot: Unless you do it at Oxford - then it's a DPhil...
Can't you just get a Ph.D. in "Computer Science"? Or is that title not fashionable anymore?
My lab is not in the Computer Science department, we're in engineering. I am in the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Department of Information and Communication Engineering. That's why I get these two choices and no others.
There is a Computer Science department, but for some reason that's not how my lab is grouped. Why that is, nobody knows I think.
Either one would get you the name "Doctor Groot" HAHA! I'd go with Communication Engineer because you get to climb those cell towers! WIN!
So, when you get your Ph.D...can I have your masters? You're not going to need it anymore.
