I know some of these CSU's donot have PhD programs and hence no research activity. Still, which of the California Universities are good in Digital or Analog VLSI

CSU Long Beach
CSU Northridge
CSU Sacramento
SJSU
SDSU

I saw your thread. As someone who has already done one masters there and knows the job scenario in US, how would you rate my list ?

Moreover, how important is the location of the university ?

Anikate, I did MS from Switzerland not US. I can't comment on job scenario in US. Job search results on Indeed.com USA do look promising though.

I prefer not too cold locations, preferably weather like most Indian cities. So southern US states is always preferable. But I can always make a trade off in going to higher ranked university say Minnesota or Wisconsin or Michigan than going to UT Dallas.

Coming to visa scene, it is possible to do internship or CPT(requires offer) in Summers after 9 months of enrollment. I also know that MS STEM graduates after graduating get 1 yr post-completion OPT on F-1 visa and that it doesn't require a job offer. The post completion OPT can be further extended for 2 more years. There are few more conditions under which authorities might revoke F-1 during OPT(jobless for > 90 days). So anyone will have around three shots to fetch H1B during employment in 1-3 yrs of OPT period. Hopefully this should be enough to fetch an H1B. Smile.

Of course all this assumes that in coming years, Trump doesn't fiddle much with immigration system for STEM graduates. For example I have heard about a dreaded proposal which will mandate foreigners to be hired only if their salary is >=$130K per year. I think this is just a proposal and nothing is happening on it for time being.

Regards,
N.
