There is a common saying in India about engineering graduates that they first study engineering and then decide what to do in life. No doubt, India is the largest producer of engineering graduates in the world but when comes to higher studies; India has very limited scope and many students look overseas for this. In fact, it is crucial that you not only learn about your study abroad destination, but also about its top engineering colleges and their tuition fees.

In this article we bring you the best countries to study engineering abroad along with all the key details pertaining to them. 

#1. The United States of America

Engineering in USA is one of the most popular courses among other courses like management, medicine and arts to name a few. It is the home to the largest chunk of international engineering students. Top world ranking universities like MIT, Stanford and Harvard which are famous for their research oriented focus toward engineering studies are situated here.

For admission to any undergraduate programme in any American University one has to qualify SAT, whereas graduate students need to submit GRE scores. Also, students have to show proof of having completed sixteen years of study prior to graduation.

In terms of cost, engineering colleges in the United States charge between $20,000 to $45,000 per year for an undergraduate programme. But after earning a US engineering degree from United States the placements are equally rewarding balancing the scales of return of investment.
