Hi there, I am currently a second year electrical engineering student in Canada. I am thinking about get into the field of RF engineering for my next year of study. However, from i have heard online, I am having doubts about getting into this field.
Here are the doubts i have.

1: Does this field required a PHD to get a really good job in CANADA. I am planning to do Master , but not PHD.

2: What is job outlook for new graduates in RF hardware Engineering field?(compare to like digital electronic, power engineering) I will be doing a co-op this summer as a RF hardware designer. and mostly likely doing PEY next year, That would give me about 2 year experience in the field. I am having good GPA during school. How difficult for me get a job after graduation? I heard that Company is only hiring RF people with at least 8 years of experiences.

3: If i decide to go into this field, What knowledge is required to success in this field? in other word, what course should i take?

4: What kind of company is hiring for this position in CANADA.( I only know that company making phones are hiring RF engineer).

5: I am also interested in the area of power engineering, Is possible to switch from RF engineering to power engineering in the future.

Thanks ahead

I think that RF engineering is one branch wherein experience matters possibly more than theoretical study. For example in audio work you can be confident that your signal is on the end of a piece of wire that you hold in your hand; in the RF field this is very seldom true - your signal can be associated, at all amplitudes, with almost any conductive material in your vicinity? It becomes very important to understand the significance of non-obvious couplings and the only source of such information is hands-on experience.
