I realized a little late that I wanted to study architecture
Hi! I have just completed my bachelor degree in electrical engineering, and I am preparing for the masters degree entrance exam. but I have never wanted to do any work in this field. I realized a little late that I wanted to study architecture. but I cannot do that now, so I want do do a job that requires artistic creativity or designing in electrical engineering, and I want to do a masters degree in such a field. Do you know any such field? the only degree I got that MAY be a little creative was illumination engineering, but only one college here offers that. Please tell me if you know any field that would be suitable for me. Thank you.

    There are lots of ways to be creative with Electrical Engineering.  I know people who have gone on to work with lighting for concerts and theatre.  There is wearable computing and e-textiles.  At my University we have the HitLab (Human Interface Technology Lab), which does really cool stuff to do with technology interacting with people (a robot visited my desk yesterday - a bit of a giggle). There are heaps of other options too.  The key is going to be looking around for opportunities or making your own.  Perhaps coming up with a hobby Arduino or Lilypad project might give you some ideas on how to combine your EEE knowledge with your creative side.
    
    Before you start a postgraduate degree make sure it is really what you want.  Once you start it will require supreme dedication.
    
    Good luck with the next stage of your journey.  The BE is just a starting point. Best regards, Philippa.
