Hello Rahul, how are you doing?

So as far as I know, two and half years of experience with a ME diploma seems quite enough to target top schools I guess. But as obvious your GPA and test scores are stronger deciding factors. Anyways, I have recently checked out engineering courses abroad and Canada especially has some top options.

What I would suggest is to aim for some best names in Canada. I have a few recommendations though:

1. University of Toronto
2. McGill University
3. University of Waterloo

Just as I have put in order this should be your selection process. I can see you facing some trouble getting admission to these schools. But you have your standard tests and curriculars to maintain your profile. These universities offer many mechanical engineering courses, like industrial, mechatronics, aerospace etc.

For courses, I would like to recommend an MSc Mechanical Engineering or a Master of Engineering. The first option is for a core subject basis. It is equally good and effective in most cases But the second one, Master of Engineering (from McGill) is broader. And you will get more career possibilities and diverse electives to master in. It's a 18-month program at McGill University.

Now there can be a lot of options that you can consider but your profile would help a lot in shortlisting the best options. For instance, you can check out this FREE school explore tool and get a customised school list generated based solely on your profile. I am sure it would give you a brief idea of the options that you can target and will definitely remove some of the hassle that you are facing.

Hope this helps!
