I would like to do an MS In Australia. I completed BE in Electronics and communication engineering. Please help me in choosing a course and university. And I have to know about the employment in Australia because I heard that it’s not very good.

Expert.jpgThe first advise to you is to start on your MS studies without taking a career break. This would help you to gain the necessary continuity and hence you would derive more value out of your course. In general, we recommend that you do your MS in the country you would like to work so that it is easier to seek employment opportunities. The situation across the world is becoming more tough as the job market is tighter with excess supply of qualified people and reducing job opportunities. As you are an Electronics and Communication engineer, you could choose to do MS in a related area of interest.

My brother is pursuing third year engineering. He failed XII. His friends have been already graduated in 2015. My brother will graduate in 2018. Is there any problem regarding placement in the future ?

The gap is unfortunate and cannot be overlooked. However, I would advise your brother to put the past behind him and excel in his engineering studies.This would help him overcome the psychological trauma of the years lost in studies till date. It is also not fair nor required to compare him with his friends now as they have anyways completed and passed into another batch. This will not be good for him.
