    Sir/Madam,
    I am a B.tech graduate from the stream of electronics and communication engineering. I would like to know what are the opportunities for students perusing masters (M, Tech) in Canada or elsewhere. in addition to that it would be great if you could highlight any scholarship schemes that are available for Indian students as well.
    Thank you for your time.
