Asked by Anonymous - Feb 01, 2024Hindi
My son has recently completed electrical engineering from Mumbai. His original plan was to pursue higher studies in the US, but due to financial constraints, we are now exploring options in Canada and Germany, where the tuition fees are comparatively lower. Can you please suggest what are the academic and job opportunities for engineering graduates in Canada and Germany? Thank you in advance.
Ans: I understand your situation and your son's dilemma. Both Canada and Germany offer excellent academic and job opportunities for electrical engineering graduates, each with its own advantages and considerations. Here's a detailed breakdown to help you compare:

Academic Opportunities:


- Master's programs: Renowned universities like the University of Toronto, McGill University, and UBC offer diverse programs in various electrical engineering specialties like power systems, electronics, telecommunications, and control systems.
- Tuition fees: Generally lower than the US, but vary depending on the university and program. Scholarships and financial aid options are available.
- Language: English-speaking environment, making adaptation easier. However, French proficiency might be required for programs in Quebec.


- Master's programs: Strong focus on research and theoretical knowledge. Universities like RWTH Aachen and TU Munich offer top-ranked programs in electrical engineering and related fields.
- Tuition fees: Very low or even free for public universities, making it highly cost-effective.
- Language: Many programs are taught in English, but German proficiency is recommended for better integration and job prospects.

Job Opportunities:


- High demand for skilled engineers: Canada faces a shortage of engineers, leading to ample job opportunities across various industries like aerospace, automotive, and clean energy.
- Immigration pathways: Streamlined Permanent Residency options after graduation and work experience.
- Salary: Competitive salaries, but might be slightly lower than the US initially.


- Strong manufacturing sector: Booming industries like automotive and automation offer numerous job opportunities.
- Skilled worker visa: Simplified visa process for graduates with good job offers.
- Salary: Competitive salaries, potentially higher than Canada in some sectors.

Additional factors to consider:

- Living costs: Canada generally has higher living costs than Germany, especially in major cities.
- Culture and language: Assess your son's comfort level with adapting to a new culture and language, especially for Germany.
- University rankings and program specifics: Encourage your son to research specific programs in both countries, comparing their curriculum, research focus, and faculty expertise.

Final thoughts:

Ultimately, the best choice depends on your son's individual preferences, academic goals, and career aspirations. Both Canada and Germany offer bright prospects for electrical engineering graduates. Encourage your son to research thoroughly, speak to professionals in both countries, and weigh the pros and cons before making a decision.

I hope this information helps you and your son make an informed decision!

In the course of your life you are now suffering from SNIOP (SUSCEPTIBLE NEGATIVE INFLUENCE OTHER PEOPLE) this happens when you let others control your life.

I have this poem.. Especially for one's like you!

The Guy in the Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,
Who judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.
He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.

Dale Wimbrow (c) 1934
