PhD After M.E/M.Tech? Don’t Panic, It Is The Best Choice

When talking about engineering, we should talk about the post graduation degrees ‘Master of Engineering’ and ‘Master of Technology’. When done with P.G. one old question would rise, what is the next step to take? Majority of the people would stop with P.G. itself and search for job in concerned industries. And most of them don’t know further scope of the education after M.E./M.Tech.

Master of Engineering(M.E) and Master of Technology(M.Tech) are the research based courses that are available in India. These Post Graduation(P.G.) Courses are equivalent to the M.Phil(Master of Philosophy) post graduation degrees in the research fields of ‘Sciences’ and ‘Humanities’. M.E./M.Tech courses are designed to skillify the students in the specializations of respective branches. The skills acquired from these post graduation degrees leaves a lot of options ahead.

Generally four career options will be available after M.E/M.Tech.
  1. To proceed to PhD. 
  2. To get a job in the related industry. 
  3. To enter into teaching field. 
  4. To become an entrepreneur by establishing own company/units/industry

Proceeding to further studies

After P.G. in engineering, PhD courses can be chosen. Specializations can be selected in PhD just like in M.E./M.Tech. The things to be considered while choosing a specialization in PhD are,
  • Interest in a particular branch or subject.
  • Which branch or specialization is in most demand.
  • Future scope of the specialization to be chosen.
It is better to choose PhD in now-a-day world where research is top prioritized. Because, only a few people from engineering background have PhDs these days. In this context, it is best to choose PhD which paves way to dignified careers.

The research done on a particular subject helps to gain knowledge on it much deeper there by giving a firm grip on the subject. Not only this, PhD is considered as the highly honored degree in the world.

Points to be considered

There is much prominence to PhD degree now. But, one has to work in any R & D or any educational organizations to get his skills and knowledge noticed. Why because, only such organizations facilitates necessary environment to pull up along with the upcoming innovations in the branch of interest.

Before choosing a institute, a PhDian should make sure of the following,
  • Minimum facilities like laboratories and libraries existed in it.
  • Should select a good guide.
  • Should be ready to spent four years on PhD.
The following institutes are offering PhD courses in different specializations in India.
  • IITs
  • NIITs
  • Central Universities
  • Deemed University
To encourage PhD in India, University Grants Commission(UGC) has introduced engineering sciences to CSIR(Council of Scientific & Industrial Research)-NET(National Eligibility Test) subjects.
The universities mentioned above release PhD notifications yearly. All notification may/may not be similar. The timings, eligibility, educational qualifications and cut off scores in entrance examination may vary from university to university. Some of the universities conduct group discussions and interviews along with the written examination.  IITs and NIITs consider GATE(Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) score also, so getting admission in the universities would be mutually different.

A person who got through in the entrance tests by the concerned universities would get the following monetary benefits,
  • GRF(General Research Fund) Rs.16000/- monthly for 2 years.
  • SRF(Senior Research Fellowship) Rs.18,000/- monthly after 2 years.
  • Contingency Fund Rs.30,000/- for an year.
Those who got admissions through NET would get the following monetary benefits,
  • HRF Rs.16,000/- + Stipend monthly for 2 years.
  • Contingency Fund Rs20,000/- per year.
  • SRF Rs.18,000/- + HRA monthly.
*Special scholarships are available for women.

Some universities facilities to do PhD working anywhere else. These are considered as part-time PhDs
