M.E / M. Tech Entrance and it’s scope

M. Tech/ME – The Course
In India, a Master of Engineering (ME) or Master of Technology (M. Tech) degree is a postgraduate program in engineering or technology. This is a 2-years program in a specific branch of engineering or a technical field. Generally a student enters the ME/MTech programs after the completion of the 4-year undergraduate program in engineering after being certified a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology degree, or a 5-year program in Science or Applied Sciences resulting in the award of a Master of Science degree. This is a course of 2 years span, having 4 semesters.
Minimum Requirements for M.Tech.
Candidates having valid GATE score and
Bachelor’s degree in Engineering / Technology / Architecture, or
Master’s degree in Mathematics / Physics / Life Science / related subjects, orCandidates yet to appear in the final examination for the above qualifying degree [(i) or (ii)] and whose results are likely to be declared by July, 2010,orAssociate Membership holders of the professional bodies for admission into their parent disciplines from the following:
The Institution of Engineers (India) (AMIE)
The Aeronautical Society of India (AESI) (eligible only for aerodynamics, structures and propulsions streams)
The Indian Institute of Metals (AMIIM)
The Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers, including Polymer and Environmental Group (AMIIChemE)

The Institution of Electronics and Tele-communication Engineering (AMIETE)

Scope after M. Tech or ME
As the sum of human knowledge increases and business gets more sophisticated across the world. It is not merely technology literacy that would serve the industry. Student has to through for a complete range of experience. Most of the government sectors and big entrepreneurs ask for M. Tech or ME graduates, since they consider these candidates to be more imaginative than the normal B. Tech or BE graduates. Opportunities exists a lot  after a master degree in Engineering.
It has been noted that now jobs in government sectors too tender lucrative offers. These jobs are more likely to be preferred because of its nature, high pay scale, reputation, security and more importantly serving the nation is always a matter of pride.
Government agencies and a lot of Public Sector Undertakings (PSU) under the aegis of Government of India regularly provide employment opportunities in various areas of technology and the path opens after your master degree. Visit the following link (Must see)
A student could go for teaching profession, excel in research area in IT/Software etc after pursuing ME/M. Tech..
After M.Tech one can join as an scientist in DRDO – Defence Research & Development organization, ISRO – Indian Space Research Organization etc. Preferably Public Sector Undertaking recruits M. Tech engineers. Private sector also gives importance M.Tech student over B.Tech Student for recruitment.

A student could go for teaching profession, excel in research area in IT/Software etc after pursuing ME/M. Tech..
A master student in engineering can always get placed in a better position in industry, than that of a graduate. Keeping in mind the current need of industry and competitive edge most of the BE or BTech graduates prefer to do MTech after qualifying GATE. Thus it is highly important for a Graduate to pursue his/her MTech degree from a prestigious institute. Doing MTech from a normal engineering college and doing the same from IITs, IIS or NITs is a different thing altogether. All you need is a good GATE Score.  The advantage of doing MTech from these institutions is that when you are in your final semester you are likely to get placements through campus recruitments.
