Masters Programme after B. Tech

Very few are interested towards higher studies. Investing in higher education will yield long-term benefits. As B. Tech is a bachelor level course in Technology, one cannot take it as the last and final qualification degree, especially in the present time when the market is full of competition all around. Mere earning a bachelor’s degree cannot give you a job, in the present era. There are more applicants than the number of jobs available, and hence it is very essential for everyone to be specialized in their respective field. Doing post graduation not only gives an additional degree but also it enhances your intellectual and maturity levels. It makes you specialist in a particular area or field so that you will be suitable for specific job.

If one decides to do post graduation then there arises a question, weather to do M. Tech or M.S. or MBA. This decision completely depends on the person and his or her personal interest.

Earn money and live fast-
Earn respect and live peacefully- M.Tech.

If one is more interested in engineering line and want to work in their trade line and want to make a career with engineering projects, then without delay one should go for M. Tech. It will help them in getting a better rank and post in the same line in which they were working or wanted to work after the completion of their B. Tech degree. People who pursue M. Tech are more into the teaching field. Those people must prepare for entrance exams like GATE/ PGCET etc. To face these exams one must prepare from 3rd year itself.

Entrance Exams
Conducted by one of seven Indian Institutes of Technology in rotation, Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an annual exam for admission to M. Tech and M.S. programmes in most engineering institutes in India. It is regarded as a benchmark test for engineering graduates in India. This examination is coordinated by a committee, comprising of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordinating Board - GATE, Department of Education, and Government of India. The pattern and syllabus are usually based on a candidate's B. Tech or BE syllabus. Minimum eligibility for appearing in this exam is usually a B. Tech, BE, B. Arch or M.Sc.

List of GATE papers: Aerospace Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Mathematics, Architecture and Planning, Mechanical Engineering, Biotechnology, Mining Engineering, Civil Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Information Technology, Production and Industrial Engineering, Chemistry, Textile Engineering and Fibre Science, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Engineering Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Life Sciences, Geology and Geophysics.

Pattern of the Exam: In all the papers, there will be a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks, out of which 10 questions carrying total of 15 marks are in General Aptitude (GA). The remaining of 85% of the total marks is devoted to the syllabus of the paper.

  • Multiple choice questions carrying 1 or 2 marks each
  • Common data questions, where two successive questions use the same set of input data
  • Linked answer questions, where the answer to the first question in the pair is required to answer its successor
  • Numerical answer questions, where the answer is a number, to be entered by the candidate.
PGECET: APSCHE conducts Post-graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test (PGECET) for admission into ME, M.Tech, M. Arch., Graduate level Pharm D (P.B) (Full time) ii Engineering and Pharmacy colleges in AP.
