M. Tech Programs in USA: Admission Requirements & Cost

by Bhavna Sharma

Master's in technology is the next level of study after graduation for those who are interested in technical studies. India, the home to IITs, definitely offers some good colleges and national universities for a master's in different engineering specializations. But usually the number of seats in colleges like IITs are very few. Aspirants who do not get an M.Tech seat in Tier I colleges often look out for options abroad. And what place better than United States.

M.E & M.S programs in United States are equivalent to M.Tech programs in India. United Engineering colleges are popular not just because of they are in US, but also because they are top ranking colleges for technical studies in the world. As per US News' Rankings for 2011 the top colleges in technical education at master's level in America are world popular names like Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Cambridge, Stanford University & University of California Berkeley. All the colleges among the best are national universities that provide extremely high levels of education along with internationally recognized degrees.

Check out the list of top M.E/MS colleges in USA. The ranking of the colleges might slightly differ as per the preferred trade. Specific college rankings can be checked at US News & Rankings.

Admission Requirements

  • Candidates require 16 years of study including 4 years of engineering.
  • Other exam scores essential to secure an admission are TOEFL & GRE. The score requirement for both tests varies from university to university. For example the average GRE score requirement for US is 1250 and above.
  • Some candidates also undermine the importance of a good undergrads GPA. But in fact, it is quite important.
  • Foreign universities pay special attention to a good balance of academics and extra-curricular activities.
  • Besides the above mentioned, recommendations and SOPs are other things that count in the admission procedure.
