When you go for F1 visa interview, there are several questions that the interviewer will ask you. You must be prepared for all these questions because there can be slight variations of these questions. For example, if he asks your father’s occupation, then he may also ask what kind of work does your father do? Some of the questions will remain same but some will have slight variations or additions too.
F1 Us Visa Interview Questions
1 You mentioned that you will be doing a Masters in Automation Engineering. What is that?
A Masters in Automation Engineering is a program that helps you to gain skills, knowledge and experience in the field of automation and process control. The course structure includes topics such as instrumentation, control systems, sensors and measurement techniques, PLCs (programmable logic controllers), robotics and other related subjects.
The major subtopics for Instrumentation in Process Control include:
- Calibration methods for devices used in measurement systems
- Measurement uncertainty and error analysis techniques
- Sensor types used in industrial processes including pressure sensors like piezoresistive sensors or strain gauges etc.
2 Why did you select this course?
- The course is in demand in the industry.
- The course is a good fit for your interests.
- The course is a good fit for your strengths.
- The course is a good fit for your goals and dreams, as it will help you achieve them.
3 Do you know what are the major subjects in your course?
Let’s begin with the first question:
> What are the major subjects in your course?
This is a very simple question and you can answer it politely by saying:
- The subject is about automation engineering.
- The subject is about instrumentation in process control.
- The subject is about PID loop.
4 What are the subtopics of instrumentation in process control?
Instrumentation is a core part of process control. It includes the following subtopics:
- Signal conditioning
- Signal processing
- Data acquisition (DAQ)
- Data transmission (DQ, DR)
- Data display
5 What is a PID loop?
In an F1 visa interview, you’re likely to be asked about PID loops. PID stands for proportional, integral and derivative. These terms are used in many systems and control loops to regulate processes. A PID loop can be used to control chemical processes, industrial processes and many other types of systems. If you want to impress the interviewer with your knowledge of this topic, then here are some things that you should know:
- A PID loop works by measuring the error between a desired value and what is actually happening in real time. It then applies corrective action based on this difference between the desired value and actual values measured at any given point in time during operation of a process or system under control (process).
- In order for these corrective actions or changes made by a PID controller be effective they must take place within small windows of opportunity (known as “deadbands”) so as not disrupt normal operations unnecessarily while still providing enough correction when needed.*
6 Why did you choose this university and not somewhere else?
The university is well known in the field of Automation Engineering. The university has a good placement record and it has strong research work, which makes me want to study here.
The university is affiliated with the top industries, like Apple and Google, so I think this will be beneficial for my future career.
7 Have you applied to any other universities and if so, why didn’t you join them?
Have you applied to any other universities and if so, why didn’t you join them?
It’s important at this stage to give a good reason for your decision. If there were no suitable vacancies at other institutions, state it clearly. Your interviewer will appreciate that you have considered all the options and chosen the best one based on your interests and strengths.
The second question can also be asked in another way: “Why did you choose this university?” In this case, it is better not to say anything about other universities because then it will look like an excuse or justification for choosing one particular institution over another.
8 What is the acceptance rate of this university?
The acceptance rate for this university is 100%. The university is ranked among the top universities in the world, and it’s a world leader in research and development. It has a very good reputation in the field of engineering
9 How do you plan to pay for your education in the United States?
In order to get an F1 Visa, you must show that you have enough money to pay for your education and living expenses.
The amount of money that you need depends on what college or university you are going to, where it is located, and how long you will be studying in the United States.
There are three ways that students can prove they have sufficient funds: a scholarship from the university; a loan from a bank; or personal savings.
10 Will anyone else be funding your education?
In response to this question, you should say:
- Yes, my father will be funding my education.
- No, I will be funding my education.
- No, my father will not be funding my education.
- No, my father will fund part of my education.
- No, My father will not fund my education
11 Has your father ever been abroad before and if yes, where and when?
Interviewer: Has your father ever been abroad before and if yes, where and when?
You: My father has never been abroad before. He is not very fond of travelling and always preferred to stay home.
Interviewer: Do you know what kinds of documents he needs for the application?
You: Yes I do. He will need a copy of his passport and also a copy of my birth certificate (if I am applying on his behalf). A supporting letter from me would be required as well.
12 How much money does your father have in his bank account, demonetized currency and post office savings account or any other investments?
Now it is time to talk about your family’s financial situation. In this section, the interviewer will ask you questions like: How much money does your father have in his bank account, demonetized currency and post office savings account or any other investments? The interviewer wants to know whether you’ll be able to cover your tuition fees and living expenses with the funds available to you.
The amount of money in the bank account should be enough to cover the tuition fees, books and living expenses. Similarly, if there are investments such as gold or property then they should also be enough so that there are no financial problems when studying abroad.
13 You must know answers to all these questions because there can be slight variations of these questions.
It is important to be prepared for this interview. You must know answers to all these questions because there can be slight variations of these questions.
