Q: I have a B.E. degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from an Indian institute. At present I am working In New Delhi, India as a VLSI front-end design engineer. I wish to pursue MS degree in the USA in the area of Automated Intelligent control Systems, Telerobotics, and Avionics.
Could you please suggest some universities in the USA which have a strong research in these areas?

Q: I live in the State of Maharashtra (Pune city) in India, and am currently enrolled in a high school there. When I graduate from high school I will have completed my HSC (12th Grade exam).

I have two questions:

(1) Do you know what the minimum requirements are from each Indian State or high school affiliation for university admission in Computer Science or Computer Engineering? If so, what is the minimum cutoff for a person who has completed his/her HSC exam in Pune, Maharashtra?

(2) What are the minimum academic, as well as non-academic, requirements for a graduate of a high school in India to be admitted to a US university for undergraduate studies in Computer Science or Computer Engineering?

Q: I write from the state of Maharashtra in India. I have a choice of studying for a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronics and Telecommunication in one of two colleges. The first is located 5 minutes away from my house. The second is Sardar Patel College of Engineering (SPCE), one of the best in Mumbai. However, if I go to SPCE, I will need one hour daily to commute there.

Once I earn the B.E. degree I want to do graduate-level work in aerospace engineering or work in the aerospace industry (either in India or in North America).

Which of the two colleges should I choose?

Q: I consider several undergraduate programs available in my country with the intent of doing research (and possibly some graduate work) later in the area of nanotechnology in Japan.

I have two questions:

(1) Would it be better for me to study chemical engineering or electrical engineering as an undergraduate?

(2) What are some of the institutions that do nanotechnology research in Japan?


Nanotechnology is a relatively new collection of fields, all characterized by analysis, design and synthesis of structures whose dimensions are roughly 1 to 100 nanometers. The term "Nanotechnology" has been used recently within diverse fields such as Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering, and sub-disciplines such as robotics. Nanotechnology was invoked in many different projects and sub-disciplines, including the design of new senors and actuators, drug delivery mechanisms, tissue engineering, design of semiconductor and optoelectronic devices, and a host of consumer goods applications. (Learn more in the Nanotechnology Now website ( and in the portal of the Institute of Nanotechnology (; see
also, but remember that articles in Wikipedia can be changed by anyone at anytime).


As we have indicated in a previous answer, it is common for researchers in nanotechnology to come from disciplines in Science and Engineering, including Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. We do not believe that one can provide a definitive answer as to whether one discipline is "better" than the other as a subject for undergraduate education when future work in nanotechnology is the objective. We suggest that you make your decision on the basis of your personal "attraction" to these disciplines once you have studied their curricula, visited some departments, and read more about the work that chemical and electrical engineers do on this site and on the Sloan Career Cornerstone website

Regardless of your choice, you will have to navigate your way through your chosen program to maximize exposure to elective courses relevant to nanotechnology.
