Changing the field of study: Industrial Engineering >> Electrical Engineering

PersianManPersianMan Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Dear friends,

I 'd like to follow my education in the graduate level (M.Sc. & PhD) in Electrical Engineering but I have B.Sc. of Industrial Engineering. Although most of my experience have been in the field of industrial automation and electronics, Also i have some certificate of Industrial Automation from Siemens and Installation of Elevator controller as well as i have a invention/patent for a smart home controller.

How can i enter to the Master or PhD (directly) of Electrical Engineering? How can i change my field of study?
Should i take some certain courses of undergraduate level as non-degree seeker before applying for the graduate program? Or I can apply for graduate but before taking graduate courses I should take some core courses of undergraduate level? In this case, How much I have chance to be accepted?

Which esteemed schools do you suggest?
But because I'm an international applicant, How can i apply for taking these courses and student visa. Are the requirements similar to applying for graduate?

Please help me to find a solution for me.
