Technology is the use of scientific knowledge for practical purpose or applications, whether in industry or in our everyday lives. So, basically whenever we use our scientific knowledge to achieve some specific purpose, we are using technology. Well there is slightly more to it than that. Technology usually involves a specific piece of equipment, but that equipment can be incredibly simple or dazzlingly complex, it can be anything from the discovery of the wheel at the way up to computers and other devices.
The role and impact of technology in both our personal and working lives is ever growing. Understanding how people shape technology and how technology shapes people’s interactions with each other and the natural world is important not only for those who research, develop and implement new technologies but also for all these people and organisations that have to use technologies in their working and personal lives.
M.Tech/ME is a 2-year postgraduate programme that is divided into 4-semesters. The course is a higher specialisation course in engineering which focuses on more advanced levels of concept and implementation in the area taken up as for specialisation in the specific domain. The course is designed to train the students on requisite skills needed in the application, research and development activities in emerging areas of technology and engineering courses.
The course provides you the insight and deeper knowledge of the subjects that you have studied in your B.Tech/BE course. There are a number of specialisations available in M.Tech/ME courses, so that the students can choose their desired specialisation and achieve success in the chosen domain.
There are number of specialisations available in M.Tech/ME degree, they are as follows:
The students with relevant qualifications can join the M.Tech/ME course by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.
Let’s discuss in detail
The students who are interested to join M.Tech/ME degree should mandatorily appear for GATE/PGCET/JEE- Advanced or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The college allots the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in B.Tech/BE degree. There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students
1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling
The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the PGCET counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the M.Tech/ME programme in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).
2. GATE Counselling
The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the GATE/JEE Advanced counselling procedures. The students should qualify the GATE/JEE-Advanced counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes.
The students have another option of getting admission to M.Tech/ME course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.
There are plenty of jobs available for the ones who are looking for a career in engineering and research. The job roles will differ based on the specialisation one has opted for. The M.Tech/ME post graduates are given abundant job opportunities with good salary packages. They can join as research associates in various research organisations. They can join at higher and managerial positions in various organisations. If they are interested in teaching, they can join engineering colleges and take up teaching of engineering subjects.
Some of the important job roles are:
The fresh M.Tech/ME post graduates will be earning around 6 lakhs to 12 lakhs per annum. The experienced professionals will be earning around 8 lakhs to 20 lakhs per annum.
Some of the important organisations are:
The demand for M.Tech/ME students is increasing day by day. Today, many organisations are looking for highly skilled professionals for specific job roles. The students should choose their desired specialisation and develop a thorough knowledge about that specialisation, because these specialisations chosen by them decide their careers.
The organisations are ready to pay handsome salaries and also offer better career growth facilities for the skilled professionals. The engineering students who are interested in in-depth study of their specialisations can join M.Tech/ME courses.
