A Career as an Entrepreneur
As a young entrepreneur, a B.Tech CSE graduate can go for establishing a startup, which is based on a new invention, a patent or an innovation, in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, Security and Cryptography, Database Management, Quantum Computing, Mobile Computing, and so on. The Government of India today supports new startups by providing seed money for establishing them.
Apply for Higher Study
A B.Tech graduate can go for higher studies by attaining a Master’s degree, which is usually Master of Technology (M.Tech) in India and is named as Master of Science (MS) in countries abroad. Some of the preferred destinations of Indian students, who wish to complete an MS degree abroad, include USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia. A B.Tech graduate can also go towards completing a Master in Business Administration (MBA), to sustain a managerial level job in the IT industry. Having completed a Master’s degree, students can go for a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree to pursue a career in teaching or research as discussed below.
Eligible for Teaching
Teaching is another good option for a B.Tech student after he completes the minimum qualifications for becoming a teacher. A school teacher in computer science must have a graduation degree, and/or a master’s degree and the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) degree. A college/university job begins at the level of an Assistant Professor, for which the University Grants Commission (UGC) has laid down the minimum qualification to be a Ph.D. degree following a graduate and a master’s degree.
A career in research demands the ability to think innovatively on original ideas. This career option also requires a Ph.D. degree although the option does not restrict a B.Tech graduate from doing research. Research related jobs are also available in the IT industry in large organizations, which invest in new and innovative ideas. The latest directions of research in computer science include robotics, machine learning, e-waste management as a part of green computing, Blockchain, Security, Big Data, the Internet of Things, besides others.
Thus, overall there are multiple career options available for a B.Tech graduate in Computer Science and Engineering.
