Is M. Tech a chance to wipe our B. Tech Mistakes?
As per current status of engineers in India what can you decide about future of engineering? Will this grow? The question about arises in two cases:
1. You want to do it and you want a convincing answer for yourself
2. You have no other choice and you want a convincing answer for yourself
In both the cases above you need to convince yourself about go for M. tech or not. In graduation people hardly study. In engineering it's tougher to study (they say it). The question of M. tech comes -
1. when you have nothing to do since you didn't qualify for any good exams or placement
2. Or when you want to go in research or technical education sector.
In both the cases above or in any case first of all you need to grab a seat in high level institute to fulfill our requirements. Do you qualify it? If you qualify well enough to get IITs or good NITs go for it. Don't think about the reasons if you want it go for it. But if you don't qualify, and you still want to go. Please trust me there is no need of wiping your mistakes by pursuing any degree. Go for training is smaller company this will match you up to the speed of a good fresher in a year or even better and earlier. Work is all you need to do in your life to earn until you want to teach or research. So it's better to learn some work rather than wasting money and time to state universities and still end up with the same opportunities that you had after B. Tech. that will be worthless and frustrating.
Some people will suggest you to work harder this time and to join for M. Tech in any university. Until you are being paid don't go for it. A part time M. Tech is no bad just to get degree like mostly done in India. But wasting your dedication there is all vain until you want to stay in education sector.
Joining M. tech makes you a much qualified and expert in your domain but it's when you do it from some reputed and featured institutes like IITs, IIITs, NITs, IISC, some other deemed like BITS and all. Other than that if you think you can make the cave through the mountain with a state university M. Tech degree, may be you can but actually it's a blunder. A 23 year old graduate from a middle class family doesn't need any additional knowledge but market, work, profession and real time experience and expertise to make his and his family's life worth. Efforts in this age should not be wasted in doing silly things and thinking that you'll gain what you lost in B. Tech by doing M. Tech. Think about it. Time may be repeated the same way it is today.
Decide so cautiously, no decision is wrong but some of them are faster.
