    Entrance exams for Post Graduation in Engineering Courses.
    If you prefer doing P.G in your field of study, you can go for M.S/M.Tech. If you are ready to go outside India and financially sound you can prefer M.S. You need to appear for GRE/TOEFL for doing M.S in Foreign countries.
    GRE: The Graduate Record Examination or GRE is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in English speaking countries. It is created and administered by the Educational Testing Service and is similar in format and content to the SAT. It is a computer based Online Test. The percentile scored in this exam will decide your future in doing M.S in foreign nations.
    TOEFL: The Test of English as a Foreign Language (or TOEFL®, pronounced "toe-full" or sometimes "toffle") evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand Standard American English at a college level. It is required for non-native applicants at many English-speaking colleges and universities. A TOEFL score is valid for two years and then is deleted from the official database.
    The TOEFL® test is a registered trademark of Educational Testing Service (ETS®) and is administered worldwide. The test was first administered 1964 and has since been taken by nearly 20 million students.
    Since its introduction in late 2005, the Internet-based test (iBT) has progressively replaced both the computer-based (CBT) and paper-based (PBT) tests. The iBT has been introduced in phases, with the United States, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy in 2005 and the rest of the world in 2006, with test centers added regularly.
    The demand for test seats remains very high even after almost a year after the introduction of the test: Candidates have to wait for months since short-term test dates are fully booked. The four-hour test consists of four sections, each measuring mainly one of the basic language skills (although some tasks may require multiple skills) and focusing on language used in an academic, higher-education environment. Note-taking is allowed in the iBT.
    GATE: 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[citation needed]. It is regarded as a benchmark test for engineering graduates in India [citation needed]. 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 Masc. The exam is usually conducted on second Sunday of February.
    PSU's like BARC, NPCIL, HAL etc. give importance to GATE scores for various job positions in their organizations.
    It is not worthy for anyone doing P.G in some college other than Foreign/Indian University Colleges, and Premiere Private Engineering Colleges.
    Entrance exams for Post Graduation in Management Courses.
    If you prefer doing P.G in some finance related courses you can definitely go for MBA.
    GMAT: The Graduate Management Admissions Test, better known by the acronym GMAT (pronounced G-mat), is a standardized test for determining aptitude to succeed academically in graduate business studies. The GMAT is used as one of the selection criteria by most respected business schools globally, most commonly for admission into an MBA program.
    The GMAT is one of many factors schools use when reviewing applications for admission; it is typically balanced with work experience, grades in previous schools, recommendation letters and other admissions criteria.
    The fee to take the GMAT is currently US$250, worldwide.
    Global institutes like ISB require the entries to write GMAT.
    CAT: Common Admission Test is conducted by IIMs in India for entry to various IIMs present in India. Admissions are based on the scores in CAT exam.
    Indian Civil Service:
    write UPSC Exams
    The Indian Civil Service serves as the backbone of India and carries great respect and responsibilities. India's best brains vie for entry into the Indian Civil Services as officers. Even though corporate jobs may offer the best of salaries and perks, a majority of youngsters and their parents still crave entry to the prestigious Indian Civil Services held by the UPSC. The very fact that a big share of every year's top posts in the civil services exams are bagged by professionals from various streams, shows that the IAS is still the dream job for many
    These are most preferred routes by engineering students in education after B.Tech
    Job/ work:
    Software industry:
    What ever the branch you are in during your engineering you can get into a software industry with simply communication skills. It is good if you get a job during the campus placements itself because it is really difficult to find a job after you come out of the college. However there are various kinds of jobs in Software industry which you get accordingly as your course of study or your specialization. It is ok if you do job for sometime and start studying again for your P.G courses.
    Own Company:
    If you are financially sound, you can start your own company with a little experience in some other company.
    Still there are various choices in jobs like lecturer in some famous engineering college, call center jobs, etc.
    So decide your career now it self and prepare accordingly to reach your goal.

  • There are plenty of options for you after the B.Tech.

    1. UPSC and MPSC exams. This is if you wish to seek civil service jobs.

  • After completing B Tech there are plenty of options and you have to decide after considering them for your case.

    If you are in need of finances you better try for a job in Govt or Industry through various examinations or interviews. Do not feel shy even joining a small job. It will give you opportunity to learn the work in practical life and will add to your experience.

    If your family can finance your studies further you can consider for M Tech. If finance is not a constraint you can even apply in foreign universities for which you will have to clear GMAT or GRE or TOEFL etc beforehand.

    Though you have not mentioned your branch but if you are interested and have secured good score you can even go to teaching side also which is also considered a good career option.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Though there are endless possibilities of taking up jobs in different sectors after acquiring B.Tech, however much depends upon your inclination. Let us discuss a few options which you may like ultimately for your decent career - path.
    1) You have not indicated your branch of Engineering which you persued in the graduation - stage. Irrespective of the branch you have had in the graduation - level, you can join in IT sector. You have to go to several round of tests being conducted by the multinational IT firm such as written test, Aptitude Test, Group - discussion Test and finally you have to undergo an oral test where you have to show your caliber and potential in order to get an offer letter for the IT firm.

    7) Start your own coaching - institute where you may impart your coaching for the aspirants interested to clear Engineering tests of IIT or state - level test. You would be earning substantially apart from helping students in their noble mission.

  • It's totally an individual decision. You have to decide whether you want to study more or simply apply your learned skills in a technical job.

    In today trend actually our country is accumulated with lots of btech holders and in seeking jobs they face problems. If you are in discipline of computer science or mechanical they I say that you go for masters degree because there are lot more thing needed to be learned so that a company point you out from a huge flock. Campus selection follow a rejection formula in which students are fired off on lower achievement basis. If you are having master degree then it may prove beneficial for you.

    You just think in your mind and ask yourself that when you studied the syllabus were you loving to do so or you were thinking about earning money. If you enjoyed studying then I suggest that go for higher education and on the other hands if you just did your undergraduate for earning lots of money or just thought that by doing btech you will get job easily then you go for the job. If you truthfully choose one of these and remain loyal to yourself then I think that both of your choices will result in giving you success.

    Alongwith this I also recommend you to be in technical line and don't jump from one field to another field like going from engineering to banking field. Jumping or changing field may provide you with a job but your hard work which you did to clear out your semesters may go in vain. This also results in lots of confusion and if you didn't get a job then you will be demoralised.
    So now when you are in engineering field stick to it and improve your skills. Skillful engineers get their way out of darkness also, and conquer achievements throughout their life.
