Teaching career after B.Tech


Teaching is a much respectable career and those who have a passion towards teaching can opt for this career. Many Indian universities as well as colleges offer students of B.Tech to work with them as guest lecturers or lecturers. More details about the teaching career options available for individuals after B.Tech is given below.

What can one do?

Many new engineering colleges are coming up in India and because of this; the job opportunities for teachers are on the rise too. As there are numerous specializations available in B.Tech, it will be easy for a B.Tech graduate to get jobs as Lecturers or guest lecturers with private colleges. More job opportunities will be available for students if they finish their M.Tech degree. This is because, the majority of colleges today opt for those students who have M.Tech degrees or are pursuing their Masters in Technology degree.

One other option for students is to go for MBA after their B.Tech degree. They can specialize in Systems and Operations or any other field of their choice. Career opportunities for these students will be high not only in the teaching profession but also in the corporate world. The remuneration got by them will be high as well. With more experience in this field, students will be able to get much better salaries.

Options available for students of B.Tech in teaching:

Aspirants who wish to pursue a career in teaching must have an M.Tech degree. Upon the completion of this course, it is needed for them to clear the NET or the SLET exams. The main purpose of these exams is to make the candidates eligible for the posts of lecturers in reputed institutions in India. This can be considered as the basic eligibility for a lecturer.

With a SLET degree, aspirants will be able to teach in colleges or universities of that state in which the candidate is writing the exam. However, if they pass the NET degree, aspirants can join in any Indian colleges or universities. There is one more advantage for an aspirant who has a NET degree. Students will get the opportunity to go for research by means of the Junior Research Fellowship program.

There are many engineering colleges in India that offer Lecturer positions to B.E/B.Tech graduates. A few of these colleges will not ask work experience but some do. It would be prudent if students of B.Tech check whether the colleges require lecturers with work experience before they apply. Aspirants can consider teaching as a part time job. They can also pursue their advanced studies. In addition to this, they can also start tuition classes.   The AICTE very recently has made an amendment in the rule of hiring lecturers for engineering colleges. The candidate should be an M.Tech with 3 years experience in the relevant field if he/she has to apply for the post of Lecturer. Now the AICTE also has moved out the post of Lecturer and the starting designation is Assistant Professor.
