I have completed my BE in Mechatronics in 2016. Then i started working in embedded electronic segment. But now i want to do masters from USA with top universities in power electronics. What is process. Which university will be best. Is power electronics will be good choice as academically i am from mechatronics background but professionally i am from embedded and power domain.
Ans: Hello,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am glad to hear about your plans on pursuing a Master's degree in the USA. As an answer to your question, I would like to let you know that it is indeed possible and rather a fruitful step to shift from a Bachelor's degree in Mechatronics to a Master's degree in Power Electronics in the United States. Take the following steps into consideration.

1. Conduct a thorough study and choose: As the first step in the process, I would recommend that you conduct an extensive study on the field of your choice i.e. power electronics and take into account the employment possibilities it has to offer. Although you have a background in mechatronics as previously mentioned by you, you should make sure that the field of power electronics matches your career objectives and interests, and for the same, I suggest that you get in touch with field experts as they will be able to advise you better.

2. Select Universities: There are a number of universities that are renowned for their programs in the field of power electronics. I recommend that you conduct a comprehensive study and list universities. University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California, Berkeley, Stanford University, and University of Michigan are among the prominent ones. In addition, the university’s location, scholarship opportunities they have to offer, the experience of faculty members, and the likelihood of you securing admission should also be taken into account.

3. Appear for the GRE and English Proficiency Tests viz., IELTS or TOEFL: Majority of the universities in USA require students to prepare for and undertake the GRE i.e. Graduate Record Examination. You may also be required to prove your fluency in the English language through appearing for English competency tests viz. the IELTS or TOEFL, if English is not your first language.

4. Submit a Strong Personal Statement or Statement of Purpose: Next, I would suggest that you draft a strong personal statement or Statement of Purpose that outlines your reasons for wanting to pursue a Master's degree in Power Electronics, how your training in mechatronics as well as your hands-on experience in the embedded and power sectors will help you succeed, and the reasons behind selecting the universities you intend applying to.

5. Submit Academic Marksheets and Endorsement Letters: Along with the SOP, you will also need to submit your BE program marksheets, and obtain strong recommendation letters from instructors and employers who can attest to your educational and work abilities.

6. Take necessary courses: As mentioned earlier, you have a background in mechatronics and now wish to pursue your Master's in Power Electronics. To aid in your transition from mechatronics to power electronics, and to fill in the knowledge gap between your training in mechatronics and the particular demands of power electronics, you may be required to appear for certain prerequisite courses. The courses that you may be required to appear for are mentioned on the websites of the universities.

7. Plan your Finances: Studying in the USA can be a costly affair, and so I suggest that you plan your finances adequately. Take into account your financial circumstances. Also universities in USA offer ample scholarships and assistantships, look into the possible financial aid options that universities have to offer.

8. Make Applications to Universities: As part of the application procedure you will need to submit all the necessary documentation, pay the required application fees, and adhere to application deadlines. I suggest that you complete each university’s online application procedure.

9. Apply for a Visa: On receiving a Letter of Acceptance from the university, as the next step in the process, you will be required to apply for a student visa. Generally, an F-1 visa is required to study in USA. I suggest that you submit the required paperwork and adhere to all the visa prerequisites.

10. Prepare to Migrate: The final step in the process will require you to make all the necessary arrangements. Arrange for accommodation, obtain a medical insurance, and make arrangements for other requirements in the country. Understand the customs and academic standards of the country.

As an answer to your query whether power electronics is a good choice or not, I would like to tell you that as you have expertise in the power and embedded sectors, this field can be a fantastic one. Different sectors viz., electric vehicles, renewable energy, consumer electronics, etc. all depend on the field of power electronics. As mechatronics frequently includes the combination of mechanical systems, control systems, and electronics, your knowledge in the field of mechatronics can offer a distinct viewpoint.

Lastly, the university that you select should resonate with professional ambitions and research pursuits with the filed of power electronics. I would suggest that you conduct a thorough study on not only the courses but also the expertise of the faculty members at each university to ascertain which one best suits your educational and professional goals.

Dear Sir My daughter is currently in 2nd year of BCA . She wants to pursue her Masters from Germany public university I need to ask two questions Requirement of any English language Test Cost of living in Germany as I had seen no tution fee or very nominal fees is of that course
Ans: Hello Rakhi,

First and foremost, thank you for contacting us. I am extremely excited to hear that your daughter intends to pursue her Master's from Germany after the completion of her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Application. As as answer to both your queries, consider the following:

1. Prerequisites for English Language Test: Considering your query pertaining to any English language test requirement, I would like to inform you that Master's degree courses are offered in English by the majority of German universities. To secure admission to these programs, students are required to prove their English language competency. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and International English Language Testing System (IELTS) are the English language tests that are commonly accepted. Remember that each university and program has its unique score criteria. The particular programs and universities of your daughter’s choosing may have varying prerequisites for language proficiency, and thus, I recommend that you visit each university’s official website and look into the admission criteria.

2. Living Expenses in Germany: With regards to your second question pertaining to the cost of living in Germany, I would like to tell you that although international students are offered either tuition-free or very low cost of education by a number of German universities, it’s crucial to take into account the living expenses. Based on your daughter's way of life and the city she lives in, the living costs can differ. Some estimated monthly expenditures, however, are mentioned as under:

Cost of meals: Your daughter can expect to pay between €150 to €300 as the monthly expenses for groceries and meals.

Cost of Textbooks and Study Resources: I recommend that your daughter would need to keep aside €30 - €50 each month for the same.

Housing Costs: On deciding to study abroad, I feel that accommodation costs can be one of the most expensive charges. Based on the city, the rent per month for a shared flat or student dormitory can cost roughly between €300 to €600 on average.

Travel Costs: The cost of public transport can differ from city to city. Your daughter may need to pay monthly charges ranging from €30 to €80 for the same.

Medical Insurance: To study in Germany, obtaining a medical insurance is a necessity. Although the cost can differ, the typical monthly charges for students ranges from €80 to €100.

Other Expenditures: Other expenditures that your daughter may need to spend for include purchasing personal belongings, recreational activities, and any other unexpected costs. For the same, I recommend that she keep aside an extra €50 to €100 per month.

Based on the student’s lifestyle and the city he/she resides in, the total cost of living in Germany per month can typically range from €600 - €1,200. Please remember that these are just estimated values, the actual costs however, may differ. To help alleviate the high costs of studying in Germany, I recommend that you daughter looks into the available scholarship possibilities or part-time employment prospects. Since the costs of living can greatly differ between different German cities, I suggest that your daughter conducts an extensive study on the costs of studying in the city of her choosing.

Remember, your professional possibilities can be greatly boosted through studying at a university with high repute in your preferred field of study.

3. Examine the availability of courses: Next, I would suggest that you check the availability of courses. Keep in mind that although specialized Master's degrees in the fields of Artificial Intelligence or Data Science are offered at certain universities, students’ on the other hand, may be offered courses by other universities that include both disciplines or enable them to specialize within their Engineering or Computer Science programs. I recommend that you conduct a study on German universities offering these programs to decide which programs best match your hobbies and interests.

4. Investigate the Program’s Curriculum: Be sure to look into your preferred programs’ curriculum or content.

Ans: Hello D,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am happy to hear about your husband’s plans to pursue an MS in the USA. To answer your question first, considering your husband’s background, having acquired 14 years of professional experience, and even at the age of 38 years, it is indeed possible for him to now apply for MS (Master’s of Science) programs in the United States. Candidates who have acquired different experiences are highly sought-after by a number of universities in the USA. Taking into account this factor, your husband’s MBA degree in 2009 from IIM Dubai, will definitely be a plus point, which I believe, in turn, will definitely make him an invaluable asset. I suggest that you take the below mentioned factors into consideration and then make a final decision:

1. Take into account your husband’s age and years of professional experience:
Your husband’s decision to pursue a Master’s degree in the USA is a wise choice. Although his age may not match the ages of the other candidates opting for a Master’s course, I would like to let you know that having acquired 14 years of professional experience will definitely serve as a plus point in this academic pursuit. Candidates with diverse work experiences having been employed at different companies, are often preferred by the Admissions committees. Your husband’s 14 years of professional experience surely brights to light his level of maturity, unwavering dedication, and the different ways in which he can prove to be a perfect fit for the program he intend pursuing.

2. Researching and Shortlisting Programs:
This is a crucial step in the application process, wherein your husband needs to conduct an extensive study and shortlist programs that align with his interests and academic objectives. Considering his background, I believe, he would surely wish to pursue management, and business-oriented programs or maybe programs in an associated field that matches his abilities. Accordingly, he can look into programs viz., Master of Science in Finance (MSF), Master of Science in Management (MSM), or Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT), etc. I suggest that he selects the perfect program, and for that he will need to investigate universities and the programs they have to offer, and finally select the one that best resonates with his professional ambitions.

3. Appearing for the GRE as a program prerequisite: Addressing your query concerning whether or not your husband would need to appear for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), I would like to inform that you will need to inquire with the specific university and program your husband intends applying for. Each university and program has varying prerequisites. In my opinion, the GRE standardized test may be a necessity while applying for certain programs. On the other hand, considering your husband’s past educational accomplishments and professional experience, other programs may not require him to appear for the GRE. I suggest that he meticulously investigates the entry criteria of the universities and courses he wishes to apply to.

4. Applying to universities and programs: As a part of the application procedure, your husband will need to submit important documents. I recommend that he prepares an excellent application. He will need to submit a compelling Statement of Purpose, endorsement letters from professors and employers who can attest to his academic achievements and character, as well as results of mandatory standardized exams. He should strongly focus on his professional experience and explain how it makes him the perfect fit for the program he intends applying to. I recommend that he begins the application process beforehand.

5. Plan your Finances: I know that studying in the USA is a costly affair, and for that reason, your husband should budget his finances correctly, so as to cover his cost of education, including living and tuition costs, as well as other miscellaneous expenditures. Also, a number of grants, scholarships, and other forms of financial aid, in addition to part-time employment possibilities, are offered by majority of the universities. I recommend that your husband looks into the available assistantships, scholarships etc. as these can help alleviate the high costs of studying.

6. Obtaining a Valid Visa and following Immigration Guidelines: Your husband, on securing admission, will be required to obtain a valid student visa in order to study in USA. An F-1 visa is the required one. I recommend that he conducts an extensive study and prepares for the visa application process.

7. Consider Long-Term Prospects: Your husband should take into account his prospects for the future and understand in what way the Master’s program opted for by him resonates with these prospects. I believe that undertaking internships, career guidance, and building connections while still pursuing his Master’s degree will go a long way in enabling your husband bag employment possibilities upon graduating.

Summarizing the above, I would like to tell you that taking both, your husband’s age and professional experience into account, he is eligible to apply for USA Master’s programs. Nevertheless, I recommend that he conducts a comprehensive research and opt for those courses that best match his aspirations. Not just that, he should also make a compelling application as well as possess a sound financial strategy.

Ans: Hello,

First and foremost, thank you for getting in touch with us.

I would like to inform you that your daughter stands a decent chance of securing a seat for an MS program in the United States on completing her Master’s in Computer Applications. As the first step, I recommend that your daughter conducts an extensive study and choose American universities offering Computer Science Master’s programs. Your daughter should take into consideration her educational and research pursuits and opt for those universities that best match with those interests. She could further enhance her changes of securing admission to a good Master’s program. For that, I recommend her to enrol in pertinent programs in Computer Science while still pursuing her MCA (Master’s in Computer Applications). Furthermore, to showcase her passion and abilities in the field of her choosing, I strongly believe that she should start interning at companies or be a part of research initiatives. Foreign students wishing to enrol in Master’s programs at universities in the USA are required to appear for standardized exams viz., the GRE. To increase her chances of getting accepted to these programs, I recommend that your daughter should study well as well as try to achieve high scores in the exam. As part of the application process, foreign universities also require international students to prove their English speaking abilities. This can be achieved through appearing for English proficiency tests viz., the IELTS or TOEFL. I suggest that your daughter prepares for and appears for these tests in order to fulfill the linguistic prerequisites set forth by these universities.

Your daughter will need to submit important documents including a compelling Statement of Purpose and Recommendation Letters from faculty members who can attest to her academic capabilities and character. Submitting these, I believe could possibly boost her application thereby making her a perfect fit for the Master’s degree in Computer Science or any other associated discipline. In addition, she may also need to appear for interviews which is part of the process of applying to certain universities. I suggest that she prepares well for the same by researching common interview questions and planning her responses to those queries. Although studying overseas is a costly affair, multiple grants, scholarships, and financial aid opportunities are offered by universities to international students. Your daughter should look into the available options. I recommend that you constantly check the admission prerequisites and application deadlines of each university as they vary. On receiving a Letter of Acceptance from the university applied to, your daughter will then need to obtain a valid student visa to study in the United States. She should apply for a F-1 visa. Familiarize yourself with the visa processes as well as the prerequisites.

Planning on sending your daughter to the USA for a Master’s degree is an excellent choice. However, keep in mind that securing admission to the same can be cut-throat, and for that reason I recommend that your daughter studies hard to achieve success.

Hello sir, I am currently doing btech cse from government college,but i wanted to do bsc honors in physics. Can I still do an MSc in physics after btech in Abroad?? What should I do to do masters in physics in abroad ?
Ans: Hello,

To begin with, thank you for reaching out to us. To answer your first question, yes, it is indeed possible for you to pursue an MSc in Physics abroad after completing a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering.
However, before you decide to pursue your masters, I would recommend you to do the following:

1. Do a bridge course: A program like Physics MSc program would need you to have a strong grip in subjects like physics and mathematics. Since there would be a gap between your engineering degree and MSc, you may have to take up additional courses in physics and math to address the requirements. You can opt for courses in classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and mathematical methods in physics from a reputed college in India.

2. Enrich your skills and knowledge: While still embarking on your Bachelor’s of Technology journey, you should conduct further research and study on your own to boost your knowledge in Physics. For the same, I recommend that you participate in research or initiatives that are related to physics. Not just that, you should also read physics textbooks, or reach out to faculty members to acquire their advice as they can aid you in your educational pursuits.

3. Enroll Yourself in Bridge Programs: To get started with their MSc program, bridge programs or courses that can be opted for before pursuing Master’s, are offered by several universities to help students with no prior knowledge in Physics. If possible, I recommend that you register for such programs.

4. Conduct A Comprehensive Study on Programs: To find the program that best suits your professional objectives and interests, conduct an all-round study on universities and Master’s in Physics courses offered overseas. I think that it is best to search for those programs that can be opted for by students coming from different intellectual settings or ones that provide bridge courses that can be opted for by students switching from one field to another.

5. Applying to Universities: I suggest that you adhere to the rules set forth by the universities you have considered for the purpose of applying. You will need to submit your academic marksheets, a compelling personal statement or essay, strong recommendation letters, and exams scores of standardized and English proficiency tests. Each university has different application deadlines and I recommend that you pay head to the same.

6. Craft A Compelling SOP: I recommend that your write a strong SOP, one that highlights your educational history, what inspired you to transition from the field of CS to physics, your inclination for research experience, and why you wish to opt for a Master’s in Physics. Throw light on initiatives, pertinent course of study, or past research knowledge.

7. Appear for the GRE Standardized Test or English Competency Exams: While applying to foreign universities, students are required to appear for the GRE standardized test. They also need to take the IELTS or TOEFL English proficiency tests to prove their ability to speak in the English language. I suggest that you prepare well for these tests and aim to achieve high marks in them.

8. Submit Endorsement Letters: You should receive and submit recommendation letters from faculty members who can attest to your academic prowess, and physics abilities.

9. Plan your Finances: Studying abroad can be a costly affair and so I suggest that you arrange for your finances meticulously. Foreign universities offer a number of bursaries/grants, scholarships, and other forms of financial aid possibilities to students studying there. I recommend that you look into the various available options.

10. Follow Visa Rules and Immigration Guidelines: On securing admission to a university, you will then need to apply for a valid visa to study in that country. Not only that, all immigration prerequisites associated with pursuing overseas education should be adhered to.

I also recommend that you get in touch with educational counselors and experts to acquire advice throughout the application procedure.

2. Job Opportunities as an Operating Theatre Technologist or Technician: Your daughter can also consider working as an Operating Theatre Technician/Technologist in hospitals. Here, she will be enthrusted with the responsibility of not only aiding medical teams in preparing operating rooms, but also making sure that all equipment is operating properly. She can benefit from her training and internship experience.

3. Working at Colleges/Universities: Your daughter, if interested in studying further or teaching, can look into job roles offered at colleges and universities that offer programs in healthcare.

4. NHS (National Health Service) Careers: Healthcare experts are offered numerous jobs by the NHS in the UK. Your daughter can take into account the jobs that have to offer for operating theaters and anesthesia departments positions.

5. Working at an Agency: To acquire work experience and examine diverse healthcare environments, a few people choose to take up agency or temporary work first.

6. Working at Private Hospitals and Clinics: Operation theatre and anesthesia technologists are also employed by privately run healthcare centres in the UK. Your daughter can search for job openings in private hospitals and clinics, at the location convenient to her.

7. Professional Connections: Your daughter should be a part of professional groups or networks, that are great places for both, career leads and networking possibilities for healthcare experts in the UK.

Appearing for Certifications and Undergoing Registration: Considering the demands of the UK’s healthcare sector and your daughter’s credentials, I believe she would be required to complete specific certificate courses or may even need to go through specific procedures to register. An extensive study should be conducted and all the mandatory prerequisites should be met by her.

10. Curriculum Vitae and Letter of Motivation: The CV and the personal statement written by her, I recommend should outline her academics, certifications, prior work experience, and other pertinent abilities she possesses. Both these documents should be customised to suit each job application.

The UK’s immigration and work visa conditions should also be taken into account. Your daughter should adhere to the legal condition that are essential to seek jobs in the UK, and for the same, I recommend that she conducts research on the rules associated with UK immigration or gets in touch with experts.

She should also contact people with expertise in her field of study in the country to ease her search for jobs.

Presently I am working as a General Manager Purchase and my age is 44, I find difficult in speaking without any agenda/specific question. Even in informal dinners or just casual talks I become blank. This is same in my personal life also. Like introvert type, but this is taking a toll on my professional as well as personal. I try very hard to be fluent with people but I am not able to do it. If somebody speaks 20 line and I convey the same in 1 line. But it is boring for others. How do I improve it.... like storytelling type.
Ans: Dear Balaji,

Thank you for writing in.

First of all, stop labelling yourself (like you have mentioned in the above question "I am an Introvert type"). As humans our brains are wired to believe what information we feed to ourselves.

Second, acceptance. Accepting the way, you are. That is your strength.

Certain steps that can be considered -
- Know the agenda you are entering into. This will help you prepare in advance on the conversations you need to engage in.
If there are no agendas then you can -
- Initiate small talks. For example- talk about current affairs in the industry (avoid talking about religion or politics) as this can get sensitive. Conversation should be general in nature. This will help you break the ice with the individual.
- Asking open ended questions- such questions help you encourage others to share more information. Instead of asking yes/no questions, ask questions that require a more detailed response, such as "What was that experience like for you?" or "Tell me more about..."
- Focus on your observation- Observe your surroundings and what's happening in the environment. You can use these observations as conversation starters. For example, if you're at a restaurant, you can comment on the decor, the food, or the atmosphere.
- Share Personal Stories- Personal anecdotes can make your conversations more relatable and engaging.
-Use Body Language- Your body language can enhance your communication. Maintain eye contact, use gestures to emphasize points, and smile when appropriate to convey warmth and engagement.
-Don’t hesitate to seek for professional help- If you feel that your difficulty in engaging in conversations is causing significant distress or impacting your personal and professional life, consider seeking professional help. This should help you navigate with the tips and tricks.

Hope this helps.

All the best
