Opportunity to work in the US - 2nd test
I launched a similar topic 2/3 weeks ago. I received any opinion and my topic has been relegated on the bottom of the category. So with that new topic I hope getting more answers from the USA.
Hi, I'm Ertan, French. I study on the "Ingénieur Polytechnicien" curriculum purposed by "L' école Polytechnique", a great French "Ecole d'Ingénieurs" located near Paris ( Palaiseau if you want to know ). I'm at the end of the second year ( so 4y after 12th ). On the fourth year I'll have to make the specialization year : I'll can study as a "Grand Corps d'Etat" or make a thesis or study abroad : I'll try to do it. My goal is to work as a software engineer in the USA.
With my school I have several opportunities of international academic exchanges which are on two categories : the first where there are specific partnerships and tuition exemption with international universities and the second where there is any partnership and where students have to pay tuition ( ~45k for Stanford ). Some schools of Cat.1 : NTU ( 2nd for ARWU 2016 Engineering ), NUS ( 6th ), EPFL ( 11th ) and ETHZ ( 27th ). Others universities are in Cat.2.
What should I do ?? Go to one of Cat.1 partners or try a Cat.2 and try to find a scholarship to help me paying the tuition. I have to tell I have an asset of 9.5k$ and I'm paid 1k$ per month coz I study ... ( I have militar status ) ...
