For a student who is undergoing or will be seeking admission in B.Tech, the major question is what after B.Tech? Unfortunately, many graduates are unemployed due to lack of expertise and wrong career decision. The worst part is the lack of job opportunities in specific fields.

Currently, there are around 4000 engineering colleges in India, offering graduate courses to more than 12 lakh engineering students every year. However, with engineering being a vast field, one can have multiple options ready after completing the graduation. But there are still unanswered questions like, what career option do I have? Go for a job or further studies? There are three different options after completing B.Tech:

  • Higher Education
  • Job
  • Entrepreneurship

Typically, students take up the easy route with a thought that they’ll trade their profession without any problems. But this assumption can set a wrong career route. This article presents you with 7 career options you can choose after B.Tech:

  1. Entering into MBA World:

If you’re keen on doing an MBA, then you can go for it right after the graduation. However, you’ll need to first appear for engineering entrance exam. The entrance exam score will help you decide the right college for B.Tech engineering. Different colleges have different admission criteria which need to be fulfilled. If you’re considering getting into  B.Tech colleges in Uttar Pradesh  or any other state, you’ll be required to score higher marks in entrance exam for the admission.

  1. Specializing in the Specific Field:

If you’re not keen on taking up MBA as an option, then take up M.Tech and specialize in the field you choose to graduate. For instance, if you’ve taken up specific B.Tech course in Lucknow or from any other institute, then you can specialize in the same after completing the graduation. GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a national entrance exam for M.Tech which will fetch you admission in IIT, IISC or NIIT.

  1. Job Opportunities:

If you’re willing to settle down with a job right after the B.Tech graduation, then there are various job opportunities available in both public and private sectors. Big public sector companies look out for B.E and B.Tech graduate. Similarly, in private companies, fresher and experienced B.Tech graduates are hired with good position and salary.

  1. Appear for Civil Service Exams:

If  it always has been your dream of getting into IAS or IPS, then appearing for civil service examination is an ideal way. Indeed, it is the toughest exam that you’ll come across, but preparing for it right from the advance will certainly help to get away with the high score. Civil service is not just about cracking the exam and interview, but also judges other qualities required to be an IAS or IPS.

  1. Choosing Short Term Courses:

If you want to settle with specialized course and get into the job, then short-term course or diploma is the best option to go for. It can also be a certificate course in ethical hacking, machine designing, protocol testing or any other domain. There are many B.Tech colleges in Uttar Pradesh or other state offering short term courses that can be chosen.

  1. Entrepreneurship:

Well, if nothing works, then entrepreneurship is the ideal option left. Well, if you’re among those who don’t want the 9-5 job and want to be your own boss, then why not get into entrepreneurship. However, starting own venture could be risky if not carried a specific plan or structure. If you’ve completed your graduation in specific B.Tech field, then check out the market and accordingly start your business. Sketching a long term plan would defiantly give a positive lead.
