    Importance and benefits of short-term courses on completing degree programs for better job scope

    Is it necessary to pursue a short term course after completing graduation? Join in the unique discussion ongoing in this forum thread to know the advantages of doing so.

    This question has always baffled me. We often find questions raised in the ask expert section inquiring about which additional short-term course to complete after finishing their main degree programs like B.Tech. or MBA etc.

    Apparently, the B.Tech. and MBA courses are prestigious degree programs and there should not be any requirement of supplementing it through any additional certificate or a diploma course.

    Candidates after completing B.Tech. are scouting for courses like certificate course in air conditioning and refrigeration etc. There is a general impression among many that for getting a job, some short term course is required to be completed.

    Why students scout for short-term courses for getting a job after completing their main degree programs?

    The author has pitched a right topic for discussion. Now a days the Engineering and Technology offering colleges have recognized this need of short time courses also and they have created a two hour program every week to evince interest in candidates to pursue their interested course of short term duration and get certificate from the same college. For example my boy is doing Chemical Engineering and he need not worry about the intricacies of computer or java programming. But his college is offering expertise on this for that sect of students so that in future they should not be denied jobs for no knowledge of computer and its importance.

  • The best short term courses after B.Tech (Electrical and Electronics Engineering) are: Nanotechnology, Electrical Distribution System, Circuit Analysis, Robotics and Automation, Power System Analysis, System Engineering, Electrical Distribution Systems, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, Distributed Control System, Switchgear Protection, etc.

  • The best short term courses after B.Tech (Mechanical Engineering) are: AutoCAD, Statistical Quality Control, CATIA, CAD/CAM, CNC Programming/Machining, Tool Design, Piping Stress Analysis, Ansys, Fluent/Gambit, Cocade, etc.

  • The best short term courses after B.Tech (Information Technology or Computer Science Engineering) are: Red Hat, Information Security & Ethical Hacking, Web Designing, SEO, Software Testing, SQL, Java, Networking, Digital Signal Processing VLSI Design, Embedded Systems Design, Industrial Automation, Animation, Accounting Applications, Database Management, etc.

  • The best short term courses after B.Tech (Civil Engineering) are: Building Designing, Construction Supervisor Course, Technical Drawing and Designing, Interior Designing, etc.

  • While pursuing B. Tech one can go for short term courses either online or distance mode which could be highly benefited for the candidates. However, doing more than two courses is more difficult for the students, but they can achieve by giving their more time on study.

    It appears that B.Tech. covers only the basics in a broader sense. Earlier people used to go for higher degree courses like M.Tech etc. for specializations, but nowadays the trend is to complete a short term course to focus on the chosen area.
