Hey Dear,


Many of the students like you are confused about what career or course thye should get into or pursues after completing their Bachelors in Technology or B.Tech. Most of them opt for a job and the ones who want to opt for higher studies or are willing to study further either go for Masters in Management or a Masters in Technology.

See both the fields are equally good and different as well. So it all depends on your area of interest and even what you expect out of your course or where you would like to see yourself after completing your course.

If you are interested in researching about your area of subject and would want to go ahead in it with even further more specializations and knowledge then M.tech in your specialization in engineering will be a good idea.

But if you are looking forward to go for a Managerial job position then definitely MBA will be the right choice. This course will train you in Management and will help you gain a position of the manager in the area of specialization that you opt for.
After doing an MBA you might even find yourself doing a job that was no where related to your Engineering Specialization and you might end up going for a job in Marketing or Finance as the case might be which as depends on the specialization in your MBA.

But there may be exceptions to this for example your specialization in Engineering was Computer Science or Information Technology and you do an MBA in Information Technology or IT after which you can easily work in the IT sector without a hindrance and in fact MBA will enhance your expertise and will help you get a job in the management level also.

But again here if you are interested in coding and hard core software development then M.Tech will be a good option.

See there are may If's and But's and the ultimate decision is definitely yours....

You can write back if you have more doubts.......

Hello


Reading up your query, I was very pleased to answer your question and guess why? I can very much relate myself to your interest level, I too don't have interest to work for a corporate world. I did a BTech and then went to complete MS, MPhil and finally a PhD to work in Universities as a researcher. This way I escaped to work in corporate sectors. Therefore, I would like to tell you that you may also try to take up this route, if you want to work in a non-corporate industry?

You have given me three options - MBA, MS, MTech. Let me first explain you about the options with MSc and MTech degrees, as these two are the degrees that will lead you to a career away from corporates. I am not aware of what subject you studied at Btech level. However if you want to study further in the same subject, both MSc or MTech is a very good option. As you have studied a BTech, in fact you will be very appropriate to study an MTech in the same subject. So this is what I can suggest to you,

1. Study an MTech degree: You can opt for studying an MTech degree in the same subject line. An MTech usually takes upto two years to complete. You are also eligible to apply for a MSc in India or abroad in your subject line. An MSc/ MTech are however treated as similar post graduate degree, with not much difference between the two. After you complete an MTech, you can choose to enter teaching or research line if you would like to.
2. Write National qualifying exams: Completing an MTech/ MSc degree, you should write a national qualifying exam known as the UGC NET exam. This exam qualifies you to be eligible to study a PhD or even work at the universities or private research labs as a researcher. If you would like to be a lecturer after MTech, then you can write UGC SET/ UGC LEC exams apart from the UGC NET exams too. Any one exam is actually enough. So with such national qualifications, you are highly eligible to work as lecturers and researchers.
3. Study a Doctorate degree: Lots of students also aspire to achieve a higher research degree like the Doctorate - PhD degree. This degree is run for three full time years and after completing it you are eligible to work as a Professor, Scientist, Senior researcher or even senior faculty members in educational sector.

If you prefer to work in non-corporates, then you should choose to study MTech and proceed to a PhD if you want. An MS is also a very good option. If I know your subject background, then I can guide you better. However, if you choose an MBA, you will be obviously led into corporates so an MBA is not a nice option.

My best wishes to your career. Good luck.
