    Hello,

    It is not really required to change your visa status in order to study in US and can legally study anything here on any visa status, provided, you fulfill the conditions to get the admission, one of them being taking the standardized tests.

    The proceedings are going to be the same. You can register for a test centre as per your convenience.

    However, please note being a dependent visa holder cannot obtain any financial aid, and OPT (the one-year optional practical training, after completion of the course).

    You will however get the resident low fee benefit.

    Good luck!

    Although the cost of the studying in USA is program specific, generally speaking , for Masters Degree program,on an average the Tuition fees range from US $8,000 to $30,000 per annum.

    Hello,

    You have chosen one of the upcoming specializations in the field of Engineering, electrical engineering to be precise.

    From what I perceive your interest lie in the field with core curriculum in building Automation and Control, Electrical Services, Energy Management, Power Quality, power electronics etc. To achieve the same you should consider higher education in Electrical and Electronic engineering, being choosy about the emphasis on the specified specialization.

    Some of the projects that you may consider to strengthen your profile are listed below :

    • HB-LED Lighting Systems for General Illumination Applications
    • Design and Implementation of EV Charging Stations in Macau
    • Pilot Test and Performance Evaluation of Electric Vehicles in Macau
    • Development of Grid-connected Photovoltaic Systems
    • Investigation on Electric & Hybrid Electric Vehicles
    • Development of Soft-switching Converters for Electric Drives

    However, though we seek elaborated information with regard to your profile in terms of the test takes, please find below some of the universities that might interest you :

    University of Alabama
    San Diego State University
    Illinois Institute of Technology
    University of Southern California
    George mason University
    University of South Florida
    Kent State University

    Good luck!

    Hi all, I have done my B.Tech from IIT Kharagpur in electronics and electrical communication engineering and my GPA is 7.58. I am currently working as a analog design engineer in a reputed company. Given my poor GPA and good work experience where do I stand as far as applying to MS in VLSI is concerned?? I mean what are the universities I should be looking at??

    Hello,

    From what I perceive, there were some concerns why you had to defer your admission for the coming session (Fall / Spring) and the university has offered the choice to defer your admission either to the next Fall or Spring session. As a counselor, I would recommend that you ensure you have come out of the aspects that prevented you from accepting the admission for the session.

    Now, with regard to making the choice between the Fall and Spring session, as counselors though we often suggest the Fall session since the financial aid for international applicants is are more frequent with the fall sessions. Also, please ensure the program of your choice is offered in the spring session.

    However, since you have already been accepted considering the time span, Spring session is also acceptable since the Fall is another 6-7 months away from the spring session.

    Whatever choice you make, ensure that you utilize the time in hand positively. I would suggest you gather practical experience that should prepare you for the graduate degree.

    I hope the stated helps you make the choice between the Fall and Spring session.

    Take care!

    Hello Arvind,

    A more practical approach would be to consider the next approaching session namely the Sprig 2012 or the Fall 2012 for the very fact you must have missed out the deadlines for majority of the US universities and even if you come across universities that still have their deadlines ahead, it is most likely that the admission and selection procedure must be done by now and your application might be rejected simply for the unavailability of seat.

    However, as of now you may consider the following universities :

    University of Rochester
    University of New Haven
    Wright State University
    University of Wyoming

    If interested in the program offered by specified universities, we can assist you with the application proceedings the universities. All you have to do is click on ‘Request more information’ on the web page and our team will get back with necessary guidelines.

    Hello Prashanth,

    If a Masters with one year duration is on your mind then the best option I can suggest is UK where the maximum number of Masters program are of the specified duration.

    Now with regard test takes that you need to consider while considering education abroad, though GRE is not a mandatory requirement in all locations, it is advisable to take the test since you might come across a university of your choice that might require a score on GRE. As an international applicant, the English Proficiency Test (TOEFL / IELTS) is rather a mandatory requirement and though both are accepted worldwide, if you decide on UK then IELTS should be preferred for the very fact that is has been in the education system for a long time. Now with regard to when you should take the tests, give your enough time to prepare for the tests since sound scores on these can take you far. Ensure that you have the scores in hand well before the earlier deadlines of the location/universities you finalize on.

    Considering your priorities and the profile, I would recommend you go through the following universities :

    University of Bath
    Electronic And Electrical Engineering

    University of Manchester
    School Of Electrical And Electronic Engineering

    City University
    Engineering

    Do get back to us in case of further queries.

    Take care!

    Hello Ritika,

    Though work experience is not a mandatory criteria while considering a Masters degree from US, it does give the extra edge to one's profile and make it impressive. However, with regard t the scholarship it is not one factor that contributes to one's chances of availing the same.

    As an international student it is important to understand that financial assistance is not easy to avail and is extremely competitive. However, though students do manage to access some kind of aid in terms of the work options available, assistantship, they take care of a small percentage of expenses. It is hence advisable you consider you manage your finances before you reach the destination. Academic grades and scores on the test takes also contribute to avail scholarship.

    Though we cannot commit funding options from the universities, I would recommend you opt for the scholarship offered by Learnhub, provided you meet with the terms and conditions to avail the same.

    Please access the following link for detailed information on the same :

    I hope the above stated helps!

    Take care!
