Hey there! I'm an international student aiming to go to the states for a master's degree in Computer engineering or science. I have to think about affordability when choosing colleges and programs as I'm not made out of money. So I saw those 30 credits 1 year master's programs and attending such a program would basically cut the cost by half when compared to 2 year program. In my country there is no such thing as a 2 year master's program, all master's programs are 2 years here. So i'm wondering if there are any major drawbacks to a 1 year master's program? Do i still get the same master's of science on my transcript that I would get if i graduated from a 2 year program? Do i still get the same OPT time as all the other international students? Would i be eligible for one of the extra 20k H1b every year intended for people with advanced degrees( master's or higher)? I want to go into the industry right after graduation, i'm not really interested in research or such things.
