Studying Abroad

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Alisha Mashruwala is a Partner at OnCourse and a Harvard graduate, and is also a Psychology major with a minor in Economics

I shall be completing my B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering. I am interested in studying MS Industrial Engineering. What would a typical MS Industrial program in the US include in their curriculum?
- Gulabnabi Khan

The MS in Industrial Engineering program teaches you to integrate similarities in concepts, laws, and models across disciplines. It teaches you to adapt, integrate and exploit these similarities in innovative ways. Because industrial engineers often work in multidisciplinary teams, most MS Industrial Engineering programs include several electives that help you you build expertise in whichever subjects that best fit your career interests. These specialties include:

  • construction management
  • electrical engineering
  • mechanical engineering
  • manufacturing
  • management of technology
  • operations management
  • transportation management
  • transportation planning and engineering

My son is very passionate about photography. He has been doing professional photography since the last three years. He will be finishing Grade 12 next year.  If he wants to pursue photography in college, can you recommend colleges in the UK which offer a Bachelor’s degree in Photography. Can you please give more details about the program?
- Mandira Mehta

Several universities in the UK offer BA (Hons) Photography degree. It encourages you to generate visual ideas and teaches you the techniques to put them into practice. The program offers essential career tools for photographers. Most courses are delivered by a team of practising photographers, artists, curators and writers, supplemented by visiting tutors and speakers from the photography, arts and media industries. Graduates have been successful as photographers or artists, particularly in cross-over areas of fine art, documentary, fashion, editorial and advertising photography. The course aims to enable you to develop independent photographic practice. It encourages an approach to photography, which encompasses fine art, documentary and commercial practice. You may consider London College of Communication at UAL (University of Arts London), University of Edinburgh, Birmingham University, Bath University and University of Leeds to name
a few.

I have completed my B.A. with Economics. I want to continue with further studies in the UK. Can you suggest courses related to Economics that I can pursue in the UK? And what is the duration of these programs?
- Aman Khanna

There are several programs related to Economics that you may pursue at a Master’s Level in the UK. Some of the programs that may interest you are: Economics and Management (10 months), Economy Risk and Society (1 year), Economics (10 months), Economics for Development (1 year), Economics and International Financial Economics (1-2 years) and Economics and Strategy for Business (12-18 months) to name a few.
