    Hey guys,
    I might go to India after doing my GCSEs (I came here 2 years go). I want to be an engineer, hopefully aerospace or mechanical, when I grow up.
    I wanted to know if anyone here knows much about Indian engineering universities(preferrably IIT but I would mroe than appreciate information on any uni) and how good/bad they are in terms of -
    1. Their courses obviously
    2. How high/low is the employment scope there, i.e if I do a course from a reputed uni, I am quite likely to get a good job elsewhere in some other country or even in India.
    I am really worried about my decision, which I have to take I two months from now, to go to India for uni and I don't want to regret taking the wrong decision.

    Darshan98,

    Where are you from?
    It really depends on which uni/college you are planning for. There is no doubt tht the IIT's are the most prestigious institutions for Engineering and you won't regret once you go there! After your course you would be offered placements by some biggest multinationationals and organisations with highest pay!

    Its really difficult to get into an IIT! All the best!

    Regional Engineering colleges are good too if you don't get into the IIT's.

    Btw, start your University prep now if you want to secure a place
