Applying for Postgraduate Studies

I have completed my BSc Physics in First Class with Distinction from Abasaheb Garware College, an A+ grade college affiliated to Pune University, India and have completed courses in subjects like Cassical mechanics, Astrophysics, Lasers, Solid state physics, Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, etc.

I want to pursue masters in any of the Physics, Engineering Physics or Aerospace engineering and I want to know which universities in USA accept a 3 year course ? As many universities in US needs a minimum of 16 yrs of education, can I be eligible for masters in any of the fields ?

    Practically all graduate programs in the universities will require the equivalent of a 4-year degree (based on hours and grades given in the foundation courses).. Even childhood geniuses in the US have to complete the 4-year program where the Ph.D. can be finished quicker than the bachelor's degree. 

    For the US, you might want to complete an additional year in your home country so that you have at least a 4year degree prior to application.
