  • Mechanical --> Computers. I am confused.

    You can always shift your branch.. In that case, you need to talk to your DSO and also the department. You need to take few prerequisites

      Audit some basic Computer Science course, meanwhile try to do good with ur Masters. The safest option - get your Mech. Eng diploma first, and you can always find a CS job

        I would suggest to finish masters in mech and shift to computers after you graduate through it consultants.

          Yeah instead of doing audit courses in computers, just finish off your degree in mech and then search for software jobs.. So many people do same

            I would recommend you to get your MS in Mech.. I'm also a Mechanical Engineer and I have crossed few hurdles to find a mech job. So, I can see your point in terms of job perspective. I wouldn't say finding a mech job is easy. But as people above suggested, get ur masters in Mech instead of doing CS pre-reqs and finding a software job in US is much simpler with the number of Desi consultancies out there in the market. Good luck!
