After India opened its door to privatization and globalization, a host of private colleges entered the country with plans of setting engineering colleges. However, almost 90% of these private based institutions set up their campus to offer only undergraduate courses in engineering, mostly because such courses require less investment.
Accredited colleges offering post graduate degrees in Engineering such as M.Tech or M.E are less in numbers in our country. Almost all IITs, NITs and the IISc Bangalore offer the Master of Technology degree, however as we all know entry to these courses are highly competitive and difficult for an average grade engineering student.
BITS Pilani offers an M.E degree in the following areas Software Systems, Electronics and Control, Design Engineering, Embedded Systems, Microelectronics, Transportation Engineering, Biotechnology, Manufacturing Systems, Materials Science & Technology etc.
Institute of Technology Banaras Hindu University (IT BHU) offers many 2 year M.Tech programs, 5 year dual B.Tech/M.Tech programs and 5 year integrated programs in M.Tech.
