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 ?
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.
