Masters in Mechanical Engineering

Postby mohnishgs » Wed, 07 Mar 2012 08:01:29 -0500


I want to do masters in mechanical engineering in Australia. But I hardly know anything about the country, and before I can decide for certain I need to know few things...
1)How is the Australia economy, I mean is it stable?
2)How are the opportunities for mechanical engineers? Does post-graduation in mechanical engineering hold much value in Australia?
3)What universities should I apply to? And also should I take into consideration the world ranking of the universities when I apply to them?
4)What is the estimated overall expenditure(college + living expenses) for studying in Australia?
5)Is it easy to get a part time job while I'm studying which pays enough to take care of my living expenses?
Last but most importantly
Once I finish my post-grad how hard is it to find a good job as a mechanical engineer?
I wish to work for about 4-5 years in Australia once I graduate.

I'll be grateful to anyone who's able to clarify my queries.
Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm a bit unnerved after reading the posts on another forum. Some of the international students say that they couldn't land a job after their studies as the companies ask for a PR and to get a PR is supposedly really hard, and most of the people end up doing odd jobs to make a living. Is it true?

According to me, Australia is a developed economy. Its economy is growing at a faster pace. It would be a good option if you are thinking of continuing your studies abroad. The job scenario is also pretty much good out there.
