Many programs in India like ME / M.Tech / M.Sc Eng and M.Sc.Tech is usually structured as an Engineering Research degree, but lesser than PhD and considered to be parallel to M.Phil and M.Sc degrees in Humanities and Science respectively.

What is an M.Tech Course?

It is a 2-year postgraduate course in Engineering. Usually, the applicant enters in M.Tech program after completing 4-years of an undergraduate programme, B.Tech. There is no age limit to pertain for M.Tech. Doing M.Tech after B.Tech, B.E or other relevant courses is a lucrative alternative if one really wants to add value to their qualification.
