Is PhD or NET necessary to teach Assistant Professor in engineering colleges?
Want to take up a job as an Assistant Professor in an engineering college in India? Find out from experts if it is mandatory to have PhD or qualify through NET in order to be able to teach in the position of an Assistant Professor.
Currently, I am pursuing M.Tech. and since my interest lies in the field of teaching, I am planning to teach in Engineering colleges as an Assistant Professor.
I have heard that for teaching in Govt. colleges as a permanent faculty you should be having PhD with postdoc or NET qualification but I'm confused since I have already qualified GATE. So do I have to qualify NET again and is it required for a person from an engineering background?
I have also heard about CSIR-NET. Can anyone please elaborate on these topics and clear my doubts?
