WHY TO DO M.TECH ?
moderator
Offline
Posts: 432 Do I really need to do M.Tech? or just start early and find a job? Spend some time after the degree, learn some professional course
and start looking for a job. What shall I do? Everything is dark and I dont know how the future will be. I want to do something good
Achievements and help others but I dont know how.
(/osank/dashboard)

The first and foremost advantage of doing M.Tech is that you get time to think where things are going and how you can control
them. Where do you want to go and what is your ultimate destination. You know the mistakes you made in B.Tech thus u can avoid
them and improve to recover from them.

The second advantage of doing M.Tech is that you add a value to education and will definitely have benefit in the long run. As we
are moving ahead in life our educational qualifications are becoming more and more important. At some point where all other
competitors have same technical skills you will be given preference over others because of qualification.

The third advantage is that you will get more insight into the subjects as this time you are mature enough to understand the
subjects. Usually teachers or professors are better than the ones who taught you in B.Tech and you are more exposed to
applications.

The fourth advantage is you will have good friends who are similar to you and trying hard to move ahead in life. If your institute is
good you will see all of them in high positions in future, their contacts may be good enough for you to start new projects and help
many.

There are lots of other advantages of doing a higher degree. But there may be many social constraints and difficulties that may
prevent you from doing master degree. Everyone knows their situation better than others and can make best decisions based on
that. You can push your plans of having a master degree little later and gain few years of experience before. With M.Tech I also
mean any master degree just not M.Tech. Wish you all a great luck in your future endeavors.

WHAT TO DO M.TECH OR JOB ?

(/osank
/dashboard) The answer is simple; everything depends on your confidence. If you think you deserve something above those companies should
moderator try your luck for M.Tech and keep your percentage or CG high to match your capacity. Remember one thing colleges other than IITs
Offline and NITs or few other good universities will land you in same boat or Infy, TCS even after two years.
Posts: 432 If you are able to make it to IITs or NITs grab it. Just getting admission in IITs and NITs dont guarantee you anything more than
Achievements Infosys (Infy), TCS, Wipro or Satyam. If you want more, you need to work hard and prove that you deserved more. Institute will
(/osank/dashboard) provide you a good platform through placements to project yourself. An M.Tech course gives you a chance to wipe your mistakes
you did in B.Tech or BE level.

Remember on thing, everyone who joins IITs or NITs is same as you, very competent and came there to make a difference.
M.Techs specially works harder and sincere than B.Techs at these institutes as they have seen the world out side. Make up your
mind to score the maximum you can. Dont ever think that companies only check your skills even if your score less its ok as your
study in a good colleges. Just to make it clear, most of the companies short list candidates based on CGPA.

Another reason to join M.Tech could be your research attitude. If you think you are suitable for research and want contribute to
scientific development for humanity. You like power and independence more than money then I suggest you to enjoy IITs or NITs for
some times and then try for PhD in some top universities of the world.

If none of the above suites you, I mean you dont find strength or patience to sit and read for another one year at least and want to
start being independent or need to support family. I strongly recommend you to go ahead with Job in hand. After certain period you
can try M.TECH or MBA or a plan MS by research in India or abroad.

To summarize, institute and M.Tech degree gives you a platform to present yourself. If you dont work hard and use this opportunity,

you will land in same boat you are sailing after B.Tech, may be a slightly better boat because of Institute. Always know what you
need and why are you doing M.Tech. Work hard from day one and make the best your targets.

MS by research in IITs: prospects and future
Posts: 432
Achievements MS by research program is usually of 3 years in length. An MS student will complete all credits (Courses) same as M.Tech student
(/osank/dashboard)
sitting in the same class. The difference comes when it comes to work after class. MS students will be assigned a professor or can
select a professor of their interest to work in his lab with other research students (PhD and other MS students).

M.Tech student have one year of course work and in second year they work on a project, seminar and dissertation. Where as MS
students will have to complete course work in first year, during second year they may be asked to attend some courses regarding
your area research or your lab area of research and the length of dissertation would be 2 years around. During this time MS
students are expected to carryout research and come up with some research papers. You can see tips for writing good conference
papers and research journal papers which will really help you during MS program.

M.Tech is a time bound course and MS is a professor decision course as in US. The professor and a committee with whom you are
working will decide whether your work worth giving MS degree, which not very difficult to convince them within three year time if you
are sincere with your work.

Regarding placements in IISc and IITs, all the students are eligible (except sponsored and QIP candidates) for participating in
campus recruitments. The magic is your course CGPA (same as percentage in undergrad but on scale or 4, 5 or 10) and skills. If
some company from your domain is recruiting and not allowing you, you can definitely ask them to open for you. If a student degree
is yet to complete, companies give them a due joining date and tentative placement offer. Therefore, be clear that they have equal
job opportunities as other master degree students. But as they live in a research environment and have published research work
and have contacts with professors working in the same area of research they usually opt to go abroad for PhD or research
organizations in their area.

If you think you are patient, kind of dont care guy and have your plans set and dont go away with others success or failure, you
should try this. You will get an extended stay at heaven (for me stay at IIT is same as staying in heaven, for some it was hell too)

Make you own decisions and stand for it. Dont care what people will say or what if you are not successful, you will be happy that
you atleast tried what you like. Wish you all a great luck with admission.

Hope this helped you understand the MS course structure and Admssion and kind of nature you should have for this.

M.Tech in New IITs or old NITs


(/osank To answer this question you need know why you want to go some place for studies. Is it job or placement that matters most
/dashboard) immediately after your degree or its a long term plan that makes you to go for higher studies.

Posts: 432 First let me put my stand for the readers who dont want to waste time reading all the post and want to know my choice to go ahead
Achievements further. I personally go for new IITs rather than old NITs or Universities. I have high respect for all institutes in India but IIT was and
(/osank/dashboard) still are biggest brand in education for whole world. All IITs irrespective of old or new, established or converted, represent a
community of Engineers who contributed and contributing significantly in the growth of humanity, and the world recognize it.

I think by the time the first batch of new IITs for M.Tech comes out it will be 2013 and they will also be preparing for their first batch
of B.Tech to come out in 2013 and 2014, therefore, I strongly guess that if new IITs dont have enough infrastructure for placements
their placements will be conducted along with their parent institutes.

It is also mentioned that the mentor institutes will support new IITs until they are able to function independently and are under direct
supervision of existing IITs, refer to this official note http://www.iitk.ac.in/iitj/circular.pdf (http://www.iitk.ac.in/iitj/circular.pdf) . I strongly
believe if classes can take place in existing IITs for new IIT students then placement too can be conducted along with the student of
mentor IIT until new IITs have independent placement cells.

If you have a long term plan of leading the world around you then IITs are best places to be in. Every top university of the world
knows what IITs are and what IITians can do. A good academic record with few good recommendations can show you worlds top
universities, which is not so easy with any other institute in India. IITs have a definite edge for higher studies or MBA in worlds
leading institutes.

All leading companies and leading projects in India are backed by IITian and being from this class will definitely make you more
confidant and trust of people in you. In IITs you not only learn engineering you will learn organizing and managing, which eventually
help one in later life to be a leader and a contributor.

According to a common person in India, which constitute a 90% of educated people still think and believe that IITs are highest
places of education and there is nothing beyond them. If you are from NIT or some other university you still have a place called IIT
to reach the excellence. You will realize it when you travel a long distance in train from north India to south India wearing an IIT
T-shirt.

Alternative exams for admission to M.Tech other than GATE
Three south Indian states Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka have many good and well established private engineering
colleges. These colleges have been approved to run M.Tech programs since quite a long time. Till last three years they used to
(/osank conduct their own exams for M.Tech admissions.

moderator As most of these engineering colleges are under one common university in every state. Recently these universities started
Offline conducting a common test and counseling for admission to Master of Engineering degrees (M.Tech/ ME) in private engineering
colleges affiliated to them.

M.Tech in IIT or MS in US???

(/osank
/dashboard) This is really a good question and every engineering student who thinks of either a great job or good carrier asks at least once to
moderator himself.

Offline The right question should be M.Tech in IITs or MS in top 50 Engineering Schools of US? or M.Tech in India or MS in US? These
Posts: 432 questions are correct and not comparing apple with oranges.
Achievements
Let me answer the second question first. M.Tech in India or MS in US? The answer to this question according to my understanding
(/osank/dashboard)
is US is a good option. As even a university with rank around 300 will have a one or two good faculties members who studied at top
universities during certain level of their educational qualifications. At least they carry that culture with them and can be helpful for
the students to think differently and confidently. Job opportunities in US are more, as the competition is less than when compared to
India.

If I have an admission letter from top NITs or IITs and some university in US with ranking around 200, I will go for M.Tech in India.
As NITs and IITs have all top companies of the world in every domain for campus recruitment with a 200% placement figures. No
university in the world has this kind of placement statistics. This will also open doors for me higher education in top 50 universities
in US with a scholarship which otherwise is quite difficult.

Let me come to the first question. M.Tech in IITs or MS in top 50 Engineering Schools of US? The answer is quite simple and
straight, MS in US top 50 universities (with a scholarship) is a better choice. To reach there either you should be a fresh IITian,
Some top 20 institutes in India, or already have a job experience in on of the top multinational companies like Microsoft, Google,
and Yahooetc.

Getting into either IITs or Top 50 universities (with a scholarship) need lots of hard work and luck. With hard work and consistent try
to get admission into these heavens of education one at certain point of time can be there. But I rarely saw someone with luck alone
reached there. For M.Tech in IITs you have to prepare for GATE, take time to study for it. Need gather best GATE martial, solve
previous questions papers and try not to be less than 99 % (percentile). On the other hand to go to top universities in US, you need
to prepare hard for GRE and make sure that you wont get less than 1400, write a good statement of purpose and run around to
arrange good recommendations. After everything wait for admission committee decision, once you get an admission letter run
around the US embassy to get visa. This all process make you understand that easy things dont pay you much in life, so take a
stand and work hard and pray for good luck.

To summarize this I would prefer to go to any Top engineering school in the world that gives me a freedom to make decision about
career without any compulsions. Only IITs, Top NITs and Top Schools in any other developed country can give this opportunity. By
Career decision I mean the decision to switch between Industry and academia easily.

Importantly, wherever I wrote Top US universities I also wrote with scholarship that covers your living and fees there. Otherwise,[ it+ ] Feedback
will be really difficult to manage everything and study. Also, only top students will get scholarships and that is really an honor to start
with.
