Dear Radhika, Extremely sorry for not replying to your query immediately. As you have mentioned you are a first year student of Information Technology, I think you are on the right path. Information Technology is a very good blend of computer science and electrical engineering, so a student gets well acquainted with software, hardware as well as communication and networking technologies. Having the basic knowledge of all these areas, it is totally your interest what you want to pursue for post graduation. You may select PG courses offering studies in software development, wireless communication or VLSI design etc, etc... Or you may go for PG in IT or PG in ICT. All these fields have tremendous potential and lot of chances for better placements. As far as scholarships are concerned, even in India all reputed institutes offer stipend for doing post graduation. You need to have a valid GATE score for seeking admission to these institutes. Stipend given is sufficient for a student to make out all his educational as well as personal expenses. I hope your question has been answered to some extent. Most welcome if you further want to ask something. Wishing you all the best. Regards, Gauri Joshi
