Engineering And Technical Courses
Engineering & Technical Courses
“Engineers should feel inspired by the notion that it’s possible to make everything better. I think curiosity is crucial. Also a certain amount of impatience and the willingness to question the status quo. But above all, prospective engineers should enjoy solving technical problems by themselves.” Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ernst Michael Schmachtenberg.
There is an ever growing demand for engineers and technicians in countries like the USA, UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and many other European Union countries. You just need to be graduated qualified and skill-full from an institute, which can prepare you to be creative and innovative. Engineering is considered as a well-respected position in these countries and thus Engineers are well paid too.
Generally, the duration of a bachelor’s degree engineering course is 4 years, but most of the universities in the UK offer it in three years. A 4 year engineering course in the UK gives a master’s degree directly.
USA and the UK tops all other countries for engineering and technical studies as all the top 5 universities in this category are still from these two countries.
- Stamford university
- Harvard University
- California technical institute
- Cambridge University
- Oxford University
There are many other universities and institutions in these countries offering quality education in engineering and technical subjects, without much difficulty in getting admission and which is also economically viable.
At the end of the day, in this highly competitive world, what you learn is important not from where you learned.
GERMANY, the black horse in the field of engineering and technology, is the leading exporter of machinery and industrial equipment across the world. German industry’s precision making, function and power are tested and acknowledged world-wide.
Germany’s engineers are renowned for their leadership in innovation, expertise, and dedication.
Germany’s state funded universities, 200 technical institutes and 100+ universities of applied sciences are the backbone of the German industries. These institutions produce thousands of qualified and highly talented Engineers and technical graduates for the German industries every year.
Education is tuition fees free, even for international students, in almost all these universities.
Automation, mechanical engineering and information technology (IT) tops the field of studies in German Universities. However mechatronics is the most popular engineering stream in Germany nowadays, and it may be because of the combination of mechanical and electrical engineering with computer science.
Germany’s technology-driven companies are in need of engineers in all the sectors. Job prospects are very good for those who have a German University degree, especially in any of the below subjects.
- civil engineering
- Structural engineering.
- Computer science engineering.
- Mechanical engineering.
- Electrical engineering.
- Automotive engineering.
US universities are known for STEM ( Science, Technical, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects among the student community worldwide. To make it more attractive Foreign students are permitted to work for a period of maximum three year after the course, towards getting practical training under the OPT (optional practical training) scheme. Whereas non-STEM subject graduates can work for only one year under OPT.
You may be required to have at least 50,000.$ minimum to complete a course in a college or University in the USA.
Canada has very popular universities offering bachelor and master degree courses in various subjects in Engineering and technology. International students here are entitled to work for three years after the course completion. This is an open invitation to stay back, work, gain experience, and qualify to process your application for a permanent residency permit.
You should be able to spend at least an amount of 50,000 – 75,000.CAD in a Canadian University or a college.
THE UNITED KINGDOM (UK)
The UK is literally known as the country of excellence for higher education. A major part of the world’s best universities are based in the UK. Scholars from around the world work research in the UK Universities.
Short duration courses are the speciality of the UK Universities. Bachelor’s degrees could be completed in three years and Master’s in just one year. To make it more attractive some master’s courses in some universities are offered 24 months, that includes a work placement for 10-12 months.
The re-introduction of the Post Study Work (PSW) visa for two years makes the UK more attractive again.
Studying in the UK is not very expensive now, the average course fees is 10,000 pounds per year, Bachelor’s and Master’s alike.
Ireland has the reputation of creative and innovative culture. Ireland is the headquarter in Europe for hundreds of foreign direct investment global companies. ICT, Social media and medical technology companies have its European head office in Ireland.
Nine out of the top 10 ICT companies have its head of European operation in Ireland, 8 out of the top 10 gaming companies, 15 out of the top 20 medical device companies, are a few names.
Cloud computing, software engineering, Data analytics, data Science, Big Data, Business Analytics, Artificial intelligence, computer science, Cyber security, Digital marketing are some of the technical courses students can choose to study in Ireland.
Tuition fees come around 10,000.EUR per year for bachelor’s as well as Master’s course.
