After getting a master’s degree a student is permitted to work in America for a period of one year, which is extendable to three years, if he is from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) category. A work permit (H1B visa) is not required for such students.
Not at all. Students with an American degree can avail of a special quota, of 20,000 H1B visas. In addition to this quota they can also apply for the general quota comprising 65,000 H1B visas.
The new merit-based immigration policy is being formulated which will give priority to students with American degrees for H1B visas.
There is no restrictions specific to India.

Currently, America has the lowest unemployment rate which has dipped to an unprecedented 4.1 percent. Therefore, students getting degrees from good universities still manage to find jobs within a few months of graduating.
Students of Dilip Oak’s Academy invariably join only accredited and well-known universities. Most of them find jobs in the US quite easily.
You can apply for H1B visa once a year. If you are from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) category you can apply for visa thrice, since the OPT period for STEM students is for three years. Non STEM students can apply only once.
No. It will not affect your chances.
There is no such rule neither it is likely to be announced in the near future till the US Government finalize new immigration policies.
If the Green Card is not initiated within 6 years after getting H1B visa, student will be required to return to the home country.

16 years (12+4) of formal education is mandatory. Students completing a three-year degree course should complete masters in India and then apply. However, if you get your mark sheets evaluated from World Education Services (WES) and if they recognize your degree equivalent to a four-year Indian degree, then you can apply for a master’s program.
Yes, even if you join an average university you can get a very good job after MS since you have relevant work experience for more than 2 years.
Extra-curricular activities related to academics like paper presentations, projects, participation in seminars and internships are important for selection criteria. Participation in cultural activities and sports are not as relevant.

Gaining work experience is definitely an added advantage. There is no age limit to take the GRE or to apply for a master's course in USA or Germany.
Students from any engineering stream can apply for computer science. But they will have to take pre-requisite courses which will extend their course by one semester. Similarly, higher ranked universities prefer students with bachelor’s degree in computers. Relevant work experience in the IT sector would be an added advantage.
For computer science California, Washington, New York and Texas are preferred locations. For mechanical engineering Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and New York are the preferred locations.

Any engineer with adequate work experience and basic knowledge of computers can apply for Master in Information Science or Data Science or Business Analytics. Also, any engineer with relevant work experience in Computer Science can apply for Masters in the same field.
There are three advantages to this:
Student from any Engineering field can apply for Computer Science. However, relevant work experience is highly recommended for this. He will have to do pre-requisite courses before starting the regular MS course. This will increase the duration of the course as well as the cost.
Ideally, he should appear for GRE in the Third Year of Engineering and TOEFL in Final Year of Engineering.
Education Loan upto Rs.35 lacs is easily available which will take care of the entire cost of education.
