Most of the engineering students here in the Telugu states love to dream of getting a job in the US after graduation. This article aims to open up opportunities in various other countries. These opportunities are more relevant to the respective branches of engineering. So, here is a list of the best countries to pursue an engineering career after B.Tech:
Aerospace Engineering – France
Home to the ‘Aerospace Valley’ of the world, France is a hot destination for aerospace engineers across the world. Industry giants such as Airbus and Dassault Aviation have massive facilities in this country. Also, one might want to consider pursuing an MBA at HEC Paris or INSEAD, two of the world’s best business schools, to advance his/her aerospace career.
Biotechnology – Singapore
This indisputable Mecca of the biotechnology industry hosts pharmaceutical behemoths like Novartis and Roche. Not just that, there are many government organisations relating to biotechnology that are actively hiring. You might want to google ‘Biopolis’ (an international research and development centre located in Singapore dedicated to biomedical sciences). Hazard: the pictures of the campus WILL blow your mind!
Chemical Engineering – United Arab Emirates
This is a serious no-brainer. The UAE have top-notch education and research facilities to pursue master’s in the chemical engineering field. They have many petrochemical companies that are looking out for fresh graduates. And guess what? They have oil, lots of it.
Civil Engineering – Canada
The northern neighbour of the US has one of the largest civil engineering companies in the world. Moreover, demand is high for certified civil engineers in the country. Canada also hosts some of the best universities for your civil engineering master’s.
Computer Science and Engineering – United States
I don’t think there is much need to elaborate on a country which has an actual region named ‘Silicon Valley’. Already attracting the best and brightest talent in the field of computing, there is hardly much I can write about.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering – Japan
Japan is an absolute trailblazer in electronics, and everyone knows it. Toshiba, Fuji Electric, Hitachi and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries are all leaders in the electronics industry, and they are based in Japan. The Land of the Rising Sun also actively seeks out for foreign talent. Consider the University of Tokyo for a world-renowned master’s in EEE. Look for the Japan Government Scholarships for more information.
Electronics and Communication Engineering – Sweden
ECE is an area that calls for strong innovation qualities, and there is no better place to pursue a career in communications engineering than one of the most innovative countries in the world – Sweden. Also open to foreign talent, the country is well-known for its advents in telecommunication. Ericsson, the world’s largest manufacturer of telecom gear, is a Swedish company, along with Skype and Spotify. Swedish universities also have cutting-edge research facilities to power these innovations in telecom.
Industrial Engineering – China
Once the world’s fastest growing major economy, China is still opening up new factories by the minute. And they are going to need lots of industrial engineers from around the world. The country even offers some solid master’s programmes in Tsinghua University and Peking Universities – in English!
Mechanical Engineering – Germany
At the time of writing this article, I was tempted to put Germany as the best place to study any type of engineering, given the sheer diversity of engineering companies and the quality of life. However, Germany is the best for mechanical engineers. The many engineering hotspots in Germany house colossal multinational engineering firms like Siemens and BMW. Also, mechanical engineering is the second largest industrial sector in Germany. While working, why don’t you earn yourself a solid master’s in mechanical engineering at probably the best engineering universities in the world?
