My brother is going to finish b.tech in civil in June but he want to doing mtech in computer science so can he do if yes how he get the admission top best college college admission

Ans: I think he can definitely do M tech in computer science. I have seen a few people in my own company coming from Civil and Mechanical engineering background and have changed field to programming. They have done really well as they worked very hard to learn programming.

More than, M Tech, I’d suggest taking up self learning in programming through several websites and have hands on experience doing programming.

I do not have insights in to which is the best college to go for.

My son is Btech from IIT delhi having 3 years work experience in a software start up. he wants to pursue MS in computer Science,has Gre score above 350,TOFFLE score above minimum required.He applied last year too but didnt receive any call from Ivy League universities.This year too he will apply what should he do to get admission in good university sanjay
Ans: Hello Sanjay,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am happy to hear about your son’s plans on pursuing Master’s of Science in Computer Science. As an answer to your query, I would like to tell you that your son should follow these recommendations in order to enhance his chances of securing admission to Ivy League universities.

As the first step, your son should make sure to draft a compelling application. This entails submitting a strong Statement of Purpose/Personal Statement that outlines his interest for the field of computer science, his accomplishments as well as his future goals. Not just that, he should also obtain robust endorsement letters from professors or employers who can attest to his character and abilities. As mentioned previously, your son has applied to only Ivy League universities. Remember that outstanding programs in Computer Science are offered by a number of high-class universities. I would suggest that he submits applications to not only Ivy League but rather to a broad variety of universities. In doing so, his chances of obtaining admission offers will be boosted.

Remember that extracurricular activities are an integral part of the application procedure, and thus, I would recommend that in order to showcase his passion for the field of computer science, your son should throw light on extracurriculars or outstanding achievements he has earned. Versatile applicants are often favored by admissions committees. As mentioned above, your son has already appeared for and obtained a GRE score of more than 350. I would say that though this score earned by him is respectable, it might not necessarily meet the criteria to secure admission to Ivy League universities. Earning a robust score can greatly enhance your son’s application, and thus, I would recommend that he re-appear for the GRE examination and strive to achieve a greater score.

When applying to certain universities, your son may be required to appear for interviews as part of the application process. I would recommend that he researches common interview questions and prepares his responses to those queries. If asked for, he should be well prepared to throw light on his past experiences, background, as well as his objectives for the future. Remember that one’s performance in the interview can greatly decide whether he/she secures admission. Your son should show his earlier application to academic advisors or counselors if possible as they would be able to point out areas that require improvement, provide meaningful insights, and guide him better. Lastly, with a number of universities have rolling admissions procedures, I would recommend that your son submits his applications ahead of time.

I would like to point out that although Ivy League universities are well-renowned, several other universities offer outstanding computer science programs that your son can consider applying to. His chances of getting admitted to a reputed program in the field of computer science can be enhanced if he applies to a number of universities.

Hello Sir, My son is passing out in this year july in Computer science Engineering. His first priority is getting a job,but in 80% cases, in aptitude round he is not getting selected. My question is, how to improve the aptitude test. Second question is, parallely he wants to apply for M.tech. In India, how many entrance exams are there for Mtech? Thank you Sir.
Ans: Improving performance in aptitude tests and preparing for M.Tech. entrance exams are both important goals for your son's career advancement. Improving aptitude test performance requires regular practice, which is essential to improving speed and accuracy. Kindly encourage your son to identify his weaker areas within the aptitude sections and work on them. This can be done through practice tests or by analyzing previous test performances. There are numerous resources available online, such as books, websites, and mobile apps, that offer aptitude test practice questions and solutions. Recommending reliable resources can aid his preparation. As you know, aptitude tests are typically timed, so learning effective time management strategies is crucial. Encourage him to practice under timed conditions to improve his pacing during the actual test. In India, there are several entrance exams for M.Tech. programs. Some of the most prominent ones include GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), CEED (Common Entrance Examination for Design), and PGCET (Post Graduate Common Entrance Test), also known as PGCET. Karnataka PGCET, AP PGCET, and TS PGCET, and university-specific entrance exams. 

Encourage your son to research the specific requirements and syllabus for each exam he plans to take, and to start preparing well in advance to maximize his chances of success.
