Dear Madam,

I am an Instrumentation Engineer, currently working in a core domain. I want to pursue my Masters in Biomedical Instrumentation. Which is the best country to pursue the course and what is the future scope in this domain like?

A Student

Dear Student,

Biomedical Instrumentation is an evolving field and has a vast scope. You can pursue your Masters in USA, UK or Germany. Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Pennsylvania State University, University of North Carolina€“Chapel Hill, Arizona State University, University of California€“San Diego, University of California Berkeley, University of Maryland€“College Park are some of the US universities that offer Masters in Biomedical Instrumentation.

In UK, University of Strathclyde, University of Dundee, Queen Mary University of London, University of Westminster, London and Brunel University London are among the universities that offer this course. In Germany, RWTH Aachen, University of Heidelberg, FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and Hamburg University offer this course.

Dear Madam,

I have completed my BE in Electronics and Communication with 50% marks, and have 15 backlogs. Currently, I am working as a web developer. I plan to do my Masters in Computer Science from countries which have at least a two-year stay back and a good IT presence. Some of the countries I am considering are USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Ireland and Singapore. I have researched a lot but still confused as to which country would have a university that could accept my profile. Please guide.

MFB

Dear MFB,

I would recommend New Zealand, USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland and UK. With your percentage and backlogs, I will not recommend Singapore and Germany. Entry requirements in the countries I have mentioned are also high but you have more options.

Dear Madam,

I had applied to study MEng in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Canada. However, I was unable to secure admission due to visa problem. So, I joined a college in Canada for a postgraduate diploma in Robotics and Automation. Based on the marks I secured there and my marks in E & E engineering course in India, can I get admission into any one the university there? Please advise which universities are good for studying AI.

A Student

Dear Student,

MS or MEng or MSc (as referred to in different countries) in Artificial Intelligence is offered by many universities. As I understand from what you say, you are already studying in Canada. You can certainly progress to a full-time Masters programme after you complete your postgraduate diploma. Since you are in Canada, apply to universities in Canada and USA.

In Canada, University of Toronto, Waterloo, University of British Columbia, McGill University and Carleton University are good for AI and Robotics. In the US, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, Washington, University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Purdue University, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and UC Berkeley are well-known for this subject.

Dear Madam,

I am a Class 10 student. I plan to do my BE in Automobile engineering abroad, particularly in Germany. Could you let me know the criteria to get into a college in Germany? Also, since Germany requires 13 years of formal education what is the appropriate course to fulfil these criteria?

Shivanee

Dear Shivanee,

Not all German universities ask for 13 years of formal education. If you have done some research and come across a university that wants 13 years' education, then you could either do a one-year diploma programme here or join a Bachelor's degree here and complete one year. If you are keen on Germany, enrol yourself for some German classes at the Goethe Institute.

Even though your programme will be in English and knowledge of German is not mandatory, it will certainly be an added advantage to your application. The other countries you could consider for Automobile engineering are USA and UK.

Dear Madam,

I have completed my third year in Biotechnology with a CGPA of 8.96. I am interested in pursuing Masters in Biotechnology in Germany. Could you let me know the admission procedure to study in Germany? Also, mention other countries where I can pursue the course. What exams would I have to write?

A Student

Dear Student,

Biotechnology as a course is offered in most universities across the world as it has tremendous scope and career opportunities. To be able to pursue this subject at Masters-level in Germany, you need to continue maintaining a high GPA, get good scores in GRE and an English test such as IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. Take up a German language course which will help you in the job market.

The admission procedure is quite simple. You have to apply online and upload all your documents. Write a strong statement of purpose stating your career goals, subject interest etc. Request three referees to give you letters of recommendation. Prepare an effective resume which highlights all your academic and extra-curricular achievements, work experience, projects and published work, if any. For Fall 2018 admissions, you need to start the application process now.

Other countries I would recommend for this subject are US and UK. In UK, this course is offered as a one-year Masters programme or a two-year sandwich programme where the second year would be a placement year. For more information, visit www.umaaswani.com.

Dear Madam,

I am studying MBBS. I want to pursue my postgraduation in Harvard university or any other reputed medical institute in USA. Please guide me through the exams that I need to take and the marks that I need to score.

A Student

Dear Student,

Harvard Medical School and other similar schools require the MCAT exam. For more information on this exam and acceptable scores, visit www.bit.ly/1OC6ttI. To be able to get a licence and practice, you need to write USMLE (www.usmle.org). For admissions to a graduate programme, you have to also write the GRE, GRE Subject test and TOEFL iBT.
