Masters of Technology (M.Tech)

About M.Tech Course:-

M.Tech is a 2-year postgraduate course under 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.

ME / M.Tech / M.Sc.Eng. and M.Sc.Tech programs in India are 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.
