    Clear my confusion regarding choosing M.tech and GATE preparation over software career.

    Hi , I have done my B.TECH. (EEE) in 2010, since then I am working in a software field for a reputed company , but I am getting bored here , I feel like I am not using my brain at all , i want to make a career in power systems or core electrical engg in government as well as private sector . My question is that should I go and prepare for GATE and join Mtech or else I continue my job in software as many people say that if u get selected for PSU then it is good otherwise Don't play with ur life by doing MTECH . Please guide me , I am very confused.

    Who says that after completing M.TECH you will be in Danger.
    You will be more secure then previous or what you are in the present time.
    You should go for doing M.tech.It will help you to get better jobs in your future.

    One additional benefit you will get after this exam is that you will be find eligible for getting selected in Public sectors undertaking companies.
    Thus you will have to appear for GATE exam.
    Based on your rank and score card that you will get after getting pass in this exam there will be two options:-
    >>Either you apply for jobs in Public sectors undertaking companies.
    AND
    >>Go for doing M.TECH In your choice field of that engineering branch.

    The questions in this exam will come from the following sections:-

    >>NUMERICAL AND STATISTICAL METHOD.
    >>DATA STRUCTURE
    >>COMPILER DESIGN.
    >>COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE.
    >>OPERATING SYSTEM.
    >>DBMS.
    >>AUTOMATA.
    >>ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

    For more details on this exam you will have to visit www.gate.iitb.ac.in

    hi dear,
    actually u are from EEE , obviously there is nothing exciting for u in software industry.
    u should prepare for GATE exam.
    and if u cannot crack a psu , then can pursue M.tech
    AS u will get a stipend of 16000 per month.
    M.tech is really good , u can even get a good job in some plants , like reliance power plant,
    and for EEE branch there are lot of PSu.
    I think u should prepare for GATE.
    even u dnt get a PSU job u will get stipend and become a post graduate, and after M.tech lot of psu call for direct interview also.
    thanx

    Since you have mentioned that you are not interested in the software field you need to look for other options. By appearing GATE you will be able to pursue M.Tech course. Also there are PSU's like BEL, ONGC, BHEL etc which accept the GATE score for recruitment purpose. So by preparing for GATE you will increasing your options to switch over from the software field. It is not true that by pursuing M.Tech you will be reducing your chances of a career growth. You will find good opportunities if you pursue the course from reputed courses like IIT. So prepare well and aim to join IIT, NIT for better career prospects.

    Hi, Doing M.Tech is safer. Because your carrier must be of your own interest. As a part you can prepare for government exams too. Can prepare for tests to appear in BHEL too. Be in your stream. Once stream changed, everything will be new and there is no use in 4 years completion of you B.tech. All the best for your carrier.

    dont worry, As you have already experienced in the software field so, though you choose GATE/M.TECH if in case you dont get any rank you can get back to your software life by using that experience.Its better to opt for M.TECH ,if you can balance, M.TECH can also be done in distance education it is also considered.

    Hi ...............

    First you have to aware in which side you want to go either M.Tech or Software job.
    If you are interested in teaching you will go for M.Tech.
    For doing M.Tech you need to gain 60% of marks in your graduation.for those you will need to write entrance exams .
    They are
    ->GATE
    ->PGSET etc.

    If you want to do Job in Software field you need to gain 60% of marks in graduation.
    And you will get the job in MNC'S companies like

    ->Infosys
    ->Hcl
    ->Dell
    ->Google
    ->Wipro
    ->Mahindra Satyam
    ->IBM
    and many more companies.

    Good Luck..............
