Whether we talk about the growth of an individual or a particular sector or a country, but one thing is common behind the growth and that is the skill sets. While a lot of factors contribute to growth in any area, the skillset is a factor that contributes a lot in comparison to others.
The responsibility of developing or enhancing skills within a person is that it ensures they develop skill sets among the people living inside them, which can give them in-depth employment opportunities in future. If we talk about employment, there have always been different trends in the employment sector, due to which people start looking at the education field in which more employment opportunities are provided.
To understand this better, take the example of engineering courses in India which were very popular after 1990 because the economic reforms were done in India after 1990, under which New Economic Policies and Foreign Exchange policies were introduced, due to which our Indian economy was going to get a global exposure, which completely changed the education system.
This was the time when the Indian education system had to train the students studying inside them in a way whose requirement was on the global platform because now students of India were eligible to work in foreign countries and at that time the engineer had the highest demand as compared to the rest of the job profiles which the Indian education system used as an opportunity and after that many new engineering institutes started opening in India and the institute which is already well established in India also started implementing the engineering courses and designed the academic structure in such a way that with the help to meet the international parameters. Since then, the trend of technical knowledge in India is still intact and in today’s age, technical knowledge has become so important that without any technical knowledge saffron Bible is difficult.
For example, if we take the example of a mobile phone, then we cannot survive to a great extent in today’s time without a mobile phone because we have become heavily addicted and it shows how technology has become embedded in our daily lifestyle. Students in India who have obtained a B.Tech degree at UG level will be largely aware of the M.Tech Entrance Exams. It is for those students who want to continue their studies in the engineering field even after obtaining a UG level degree and want to take admission in PG courses like M.Tech.
Why Opting for M.Tech?
There can be many reasons behind the students doing MTech courses such as either the student wants to get a doctorate (PhD.) in the engineering field in future for which the master’s degree is Mandatory or he/she wants to develop or enhance their skills even more so they get better employment opportunities and good monetary returns.
Some Facts and Figures:
After graduation, M.Tech Entrance Exams are conducted in India by various bodies and the various institutions at their own and in India every year lakhs of students complete B.Tech courses, out of which more than 10 lakh children apply for M.Tech courses every year. With the help of many research papers, it has been found that after MTech in India, the salary package that students are getting increases considerably, and at the same time, the opportunity of promotion increases too.
There is also a body in India that conducts a common entrance test, through which students in many institutes in India can take admission in courses like M.Tech and such exam is GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) and lakhs of students have already started preparation for GATE 2021.
GATE exam is a national level entrance exam and it is a way through which students can get admission in various types of postgraduate engineering programs (Master of Engineering (ME), Master in Technology (MTech), and direct PhD) offered by top rank institutes like IITs, NITs, IIITs, and other CFTIs. In 2021, this exam will be conducted by either IIT Mumbai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee or the Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore). Some important information related to GATE 2021 are as follows,
|Registration date for 2021 exam||The first week of September 2020 (Tentative)|
|Last date of registration||Fourth week of September 2020 (Tentative)|
|Releasing admit card||January 2021 (Tentative)|
