To be or not to be an engineer is a big question that grapples the mind of every engineering student after completing BE/BTech pursuing MTech or MBA, both the paths seem to be equally promising though the current trends show more inclination towards MBA due to attractive salaries and the wider horizons it opens.

Pursuing MBA is considered as a deviation in the career for a tech graduate but the fact is that acquiring a MBA degree helps to learn newer ways to generate economic perspective for the people. It simply means to be into a “real game” together with vast career options. On one hand, holding an MTech degree provides you an opportunity to expand your knowledge, one can say a dig deeper into the content, and helps to expertise your field. Despite of opening new vistas and creating things through technical skills, there's worrying need for technically qualified people with MTech due to the dearth that currently exist in the country especially in the research and development industry in the Government as well as in the private sectors.

At Youth4work.com, we have seen that the probability of getting jobs for MTech degrees holder is .025 whereas for a MBA degree holder is 0.17. Both types of postgraduates have different working methods. If technically sound MBA folks have better aptitude, they can communicate down and across which makes them better paid.

To create more opportunities for the techie and to make India digitally strong, a new project by Youth4work — IFFCO YUVA (which is a tie-up with IFFCO), a platform for rural youth under its Indian Cooperative Digital Platform, has been set up. Its main motive is to uplift the rural youth digitally, to reinforce the education, research and innovation capabilities. This ventures up skills of many talented people in the villages by registering online for various online certification skill courses and taking online skill tests.

In a country where getting degrees from both IIT and IIM is considered to be as smooth sailing throughout the life, both the premium institutes have different line of flow and prepares elite workforce. Many branded companies approach them to recruit the most talented and skilled professionals though the grass is not as green as it seems to be. This certainly restricts the chances of many talented and skilled youth.  Also not all the postgraduates from such colleges get their dream jobs.

The young people from everywhere should be given opportunities to exhibit their skills and this is one good way to improve employability in India. Good decisions and good work comes from good experience. After all there is no substitute for experience.

There is a road that forks into two one MTech and the other MBA and both seem equally fair. All that is required is a good vision to break the old restricting trends. Just as Youth4work.com believes in providing opportunities to the aspiring skilled people from everywhere, many young people can be assets for our nation and the big question to be an engineer or not to be, to go for MTech or MBA will not bother. Of course without an ultimate goal in mind, it's difficult to say which one better! So follow your dreams.
