Emil’s Answer

In general it is the last college degree that counts in terms of ones job prospects. If you are only doing a bachelors degree then the institution where you get that degree from matters. In India, graduates from IIT -- yes, I know there are multiple campuses -- generally have better prospects than graduates from other schools.

If you are going for an advanced degree then where you have your earlier degree from is far less important. The reputation of the school plus your grades and recommendations will have to be good enough to get you into an advanced degree program. Where the advanced degree program is from can make a big difference. To use US examples, a degree an engineering from MIT, Stanford, Georgia Tech, or University of California - Berkeley is perceived as very different from say an identical degree from either Arizona State or the University of Alabama. School reputations vary based on the academic area or discipline. So it's important to look at school rating for the particular discipline that you are pursuing. If possible have your final degree from a university with a strong reputation in your chosen field of study / degree.

In the end you will need to make a personal choice based on balancing your ultimate goal, the experience that you want to have along the way, and the cost.

Manoj’s Answer

Hi Bhavarth, as far as my understanding goes and so as my own experiences with my friends and colleagues, this decision depends upon what are your priorities - that is if you are looking for a job in Canada or you want to come back to India and work here and at the same time the kind of education versus the amount of money saved.
If you go for your option 1 (advanced diploma), you will be attending your major part of time in Canada and thus although it would be less expensive but at the same time you wouldn't be exposed to the various challenges of an engineering curriculum which are primarily present in our national colleges (at least at engineering level).
But if you opt for option 2, where you try to get into some good engineering institutions of India and hence you would be having a strong basic post which a Masters in Canada will help you to leverage that in an international context.


Hence I would suggest you to complete your engineering here and then opt for a masters degree there.
