Dear Mr Mayank ,my daughter presently pursuing B Tech-CS (AI/ML) from SRM Chennai -in 2nd year at present -we are in two minds as to doing MS abroad or take up campus job if possible after passout -MS abroad obviously would be finicially challenging so i thought at least she can work for say 2 years to begin with & then .Could you be able to offer some advice on the same.
Ans: Hello Sougata,

To begin with, thank you for contacting us. I am happy to hear that your daughter is currently pursuing the second year of her Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Computer Science (AI/ML). To answer your question first, I would like to tell you that deciding whether to begin working after earning a Bachelor’s degree in B.Tech- CS (AI/ML) or to go abroad for a Masters program can be a big decision. I would recommend that your daughter considers the following:

Firstly, I would suggest that you motivate your daughter to consider her professional objectives and ambitions. Consider whether she intends working in industry or pursuing research and academia. Remember that specialized information and possibilities for research can be offered through a Masters degree. A job on the contrary, can offer hands-on experience and skill advancement. Next, I would recommend that you investigate the AI/ML labor market both, locally and globally. Ascertain whether professionals with a Masters degree are highly sought-after or if pertinent work experience is equally valued. Coming to monetary considerations, bear in mind that finances play a key role in decision-making. Evaluate the cost of pursuing a Masters degree overseas taking into account the tuition costs, living costs, and any possible monetary assistance or scholarships. I would suggest that you compare this to the possible pay from an entry-level job post graduation or from a job on campus. Remember that significant networking possibilities as well as exposure to varied viewpoints, cultures, and technological advancements are offered by studying overseas. I would suggest that you think about the long-term advantages of developing a worldwide professional network and acquiring overseas experience. As the next step, I would recommend that you explore whether your daughter’s institution or future employers offer any possibilities for industry linkages or alliances. Bear in mind that besides improving her employment opportunities, these contacts can also offer insightful knowledge of the field. Motivate your daughter to consider her goals for personal development. Studying overseas can promote independence, flexibility and cultural understanding. Working, on the other hand, can provide useful skills and advance one’s career. Lastly, the choice should best resonate with your daughter’s personal objectives, ambitions, and financial circumstances. Prior to making a decision, I would recommend that your daughter gets in touch with mentors, employment consultants, former students, as well as industry experts to acquire new viewpoints and insights.
