I amcurrently doing B.Tech Applied Petroleum Engineering. I am in final year. I will complete this course in May 2014. I want to switch to somputer/spftware engineering in some good university in Australia. How should I carry forward my career?

I have keen interest in Computer and Softwares. I am looking forward for IELTS a good score in IELSTS. I don't want a drop year. My CGPA is quite low its around 2.3/4.

Dear Friend,

Nice to know that u have a way forward clarity that u wish to go to Australia and want to pursue computer / software studies.


Have a wish and making it a reality are two different things.
I suggest :
1. Decide why you wish to switch over from Petroleum to soft ware. Do some search wrt prospects of both after 5 years, competition then, trend of compensation,future niche that u will be able to develop.
2. Pl. do thorough study of universities / colleges, duration, student work permits, possibilities of gainful employment without exploitation while on student's status, possibilities of TR converting into PR, your own mental and physical agility to bear things and stick to ur goals, family and financial circumstances that support your dreams.
If you need to discuss the above in greater detail, pl. write to me your queries. You still have 6 more months to prepare and explore thoroughly. Be positive and keep your options always open. Also be patient before concluding.

It is better you strat learm about some software languages like C, C++, Java etc. Besides these try to do some projects on computer science using these languages. Many private institutions help in doing this.

It is essential because when you will apply for Computer science in Australia, they will definitely ask why you want to change your stream? At that point all these knowledge helps you in justifying your position and it will also help in future course. Besides these you must visit other universities websites to check their requirements and will try your time to gain all those eleigibilities. It will help you in clearing interviews of these colleges.
