Hello, I have completed Masters in Physics and have experience in teaching for almost 7 years from India. I live in US and now want to change my career from academics towards industry jobs. I have seen that most of the jobs related to Physics background requires programming knowledge and also other skills in computers. Can someone advice about prospects of pursuing M.S in computer science? Also is there any recognition given during job search if I learn programming like C++ online? I am almost 40 years of age and have a kid 9 yrs old. I am confused if pursuing an educational degree for two years in US is worthy enough to improve my job prospect. Please advice. Thanks.
