I completed bachelors in Mechanical engineering in 2013 and have been working since Jan 2014. My current job as a 'manufacturing engineer' is a non-technical back office job (because I'm from India where my bachelors does not really mean what it's titled) where many MNCs set-up their back offices.
I just wanted to start earning when I finished studying and hence did not bother much about higher education. Now, after working for 7 years, I've started to think about pursuing higher education in the field of engineering, with my specific interest being Robotics.
I do not have any experience pertaining to the field of Robotics. But I've started studying math diligently in-order to prepare myself for the knowledge that I'm aiming to acquire to be able to get myself into that field.
I want to study MS Robotics from a good university (and do a PhD after that), possibly a US based one. To do that, I'd require letters of recommendation from either my professors or someone of repute whom I work with in that field (Robotics in my case). It's been 7 years since I've finished my bachelors and since I'm working an a field that has nothing to do with Robotics, the chances of me getting a LoR form someone relevant is non-existent.
I do not know how to pursue my target of getting into a decent university for Robotics (but I'm doing self study regardless). It would be of great help if someone can give me some practical piece of advice on how I may go further in that path.
