Undergrad or postgrad???US is more expensive in terms of tuition fee,unless you get a scholarship which is very difficult.And would you be going to india immediately after you complete your studies??

I think most undergrad degree courses in the US is 4 years and 3 years in the UK unless you want a year in industry and/or get a masters as well.

Most undergrad degrees in the US seem to have a major and a minor when you have to study two unrelated subjects while that is rare in the UK and most degrees just do a single subject.

On the plus side, its probably easier to stay in the US after your degree because the UK govt is trying to get rid of anyone useful after they graduate. If you want a overseas student friendly country to study, Australia is a good place.

I'd say the US as the immigration situation is better over there, their engineering schools are a bit more respected and salary is much higher. That said if you could do a UK engineering degree with a year in North America that would probably be the best option as you'll graduate in 4 years with a masters degree and having studied in the US which will give you a bit of a bump in terms of employment prospects.

Thank you for you valuable feedback. Based on what you mentioned about Australia, would it be better to study in the UK (in terms of better universities) the look for a job in Australia....(is it even psbl?) or study in Australia??

Thank you for you valuable feedback. Based on what you mentioned about first studying in the UK can you pls elaborate? Do you mean doing a year abroad in an industry or studying in US for a year. And how would you go about it?

Studying, you would apply to a university which has a study abroad program for the discipline of engineering you wish to do and also make sure that the US is a possible destination at that university. They may have separate study abroad/study in Europe/study in North America programs so look out for that, they'll probably also have a grade requirement that you'll be expected to meet in order to be allowed to go abroad.

I don't think there is a lot of difference between UK and most US unis in terms of the quality of the degrees, UK degrees are well respected internationally and there is no problem getting a good job with a degree from a UK uni. The only issue with studying in the UK is the difficulty in staying in the UK and getting a job after graduation.
