Dear Madam,
I am in the second year of mechanical engineering. I finished my Diploma and took lateral entry into the present course. I want to pursue my studies in Germany. What are the exams that we should take for entry and where can I get proper training? Is studying German language a must to get admission? Kindly guide.
A student

Dear Student,
You need to take the GRE and TOEFL iBT exam. Go to www.ets.org and work on past papers. You don’t need any formal training. Learning German language at the Goethe Institute will certainly be an advantage. Getting admission in a German university is not very easy. Academic achievements, published research work, internships and work experience and finally proficiency in German language will help strengthen your application.  

Dear Madam,
I am a BE (Mechanical) graduate with an aggregate of 74.46% and an internship from a reputed organisation. I want to do Masters in Aerospace engineering, Aeronautical engineering or Mechanical engineering. I want know about other courses that could land me a job in aerospace/aeronautical industry, and countries (apart from USA and UK) that offer these courses in English at an affordable budget. Keeping my budget in mind, how should I shortlist the colleges? Apart from IITs and NITs, which other reputed colleges can I choose in India to do my Masters? Please guide.

Dear Student,
You may pursue your Masters in Aerospace or Aeronautical engineering. You could look at TU of Munich, RWTH Aachen, TU Delft Netherlands, Cranfield University UK, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University of Singapore (NTU), University of Tokyo and Australian Universities such as Monash, RMIT, New South Wales and University of Melbourne. These universities offer programmes in English and they are affordable when compared to a university in the US. In India, apart from IITs and NITs, you could consider Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology Thiruvananthapuram, PEC University of Technology Chandigarh, Birla Institute of Technology Ranchi, Madras Institute of Technology Chennai, Defence Institute of Advanced Technology Pune and Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research Bengaluru.

Dear Madam,
I am currently doing BCom (third semester) in a private college. I got 7 CGPA in Class 10 and 78% in II PUC (CEBA). Due to some reasons, I got 52% and 49% in the first and second semesters respectively. I want to do CIMA in the UK or MBA (Finance) either in the UK or France. Will I be eligible to take it up? Also, please inform about other courses in these countries.

Dear Gautam,
Don’t worry about your earlier grades. Work on getting a good aggregate and take the IELTS exam. You can certainly apply to both the UK and France for your Masters. Ideally you would require two to three years of work experience and GMAT to get into a good university that offers MBA. There are very few universities that will take students without work experience. The UK has more university options for MSc and MBA. You can pursue your CIMA in the UK along with a Masters in Finance directly, after your BCom without any work experience. For more information on CIMA, visit www.cimaglobal.com.

Dear Madam,
I am in ECE final year. My aim is to work at NASA. Can you please guide with the options and necessary preparation? Also inform as to what are the other options after ECE.
Rachel

Dear Rachel,
After your Bachelor’s, pursue MS in areas such as embedded systems, software engineering, nanotechnology, information/ cyber security and VLSI design. A few of the other fields which you can specialise in after your ECE are bioinformatics, robotics, optoelectronics, digital signal processing and digital systems and communication. Aim for a high GRE score to get into a top US university.
