Firstly great that you are thinking that far, directly to the masters level.

But first you need to clear your Graduation, and then opt for the above mentioned courses.

Currently my advice to you would be to put in all your efforts and score well in your 12th. Since it is computers that you are looking out for, you could opt for either a BCA ( Bachelors in Computer Application) or a B.Sc IT. Both are 3 years program. Admission purely on merit. Since this course is open for any 12th pass especially BCA, many students opt for these courses.For admission to B.Sc IT, major focus is on Math as a subject. So good would be to concentrate and clear your 12th with good percentage.

A graduate degree would expose you to basic computer functioning right from Hardware to software to its networking. For applications, you need a maters degree.

Admission to M.Sc IT is purely based on entrance exam and MCA in few colleges are based on entrance exam and merit too.
MCA is purely application based, whereby you would learn to deal with hardware issues, trouble shooting, development of software and its application. it is more theoretical rather than M.Sc IT, which also covers the same syllabus, but it is purely theoretical.

You can make your choice accordingly.

Jobs available are:
  • Systems developer
  • Trouble shooter
  • System Manager
  • Software technician
  • Software developer

In addition to the degree, it would be helpful if you could get computer certificates like web designing, graphics and so on. Also please note that since this field is a demanding and ever changing field, as new technology is in market, to survive you would have to get yourself updated on a regular basis.

Please if you could elaborate more on MEBA, since the website is talking on some dubai based aerospace exhibition.

Please let me know about the course, so that i could elaborate more on it.

Choose wisely.

Wish you all the very best..............
