Dr. Dillow began the presentation by emphasizing the good fortune of his audience and ofIndian students in general. With India predicted to lead the world economically by 2050and with Indian students in huge demand, he made clear that the audience was part of alucky generation as they have the potential to lead the world in their chosen professions.He also emphasized the quality of Indian education but said that there were many reasonswhy students should still consider studying overseas especially if they wanted to advanceprofessionally as engineers or in management.

The speakers then looked at the reasons for studying overseas. The greater diversity ofcourses on offer in North America and across Europe was emphasized with many universitiesoffering specialized options within the field of engineering. The excellent facilities availablein many universities outside India also meant that students would find more opportunitiesfor hands-on experience and greater access to published materials than they might at home.The speakers also talked about the different styles of learning that students would experienceand how the mixture of theory, practical experience and industrial exposure would broadenstudents' understanding of their subject and increase their potential employability. Theopportunities to build more confident use of English and other languages were also seen asan important benefit as students would be better equipped to work in organisations and workenvironments that are multi-cultural and involve interaction with people from other countries.

The speakers then explained the opportunities for students in various locations and showedconsiderable understanding both of the needs of their audience and what various countrieshad to offer. Opportunities for engineers in Canada, the UK, USA and Germany were dealtwith in detail while Arup Baishya emphasized that besides UK and Germany, other countriesin Europe also offered exceptional options for Indian students in terms of quality of educationand return on investment.

The speakers also emphasized that BTech students could do Masters in engineering withspecialization in their field of interest. Flexibility of education system and wide choice ofelective subjects, especially in US, would allow them to learn about more than one chosenfield of specialisation. But the students who are keen to move into Management andcould opt for Masters in Operations Management, International Business or an MBA withspecialization in fields like Finance, Marketing or General Management.
