M Tech stands for Master of Technology. This course is purely Postgraduate technical course after B Tech. After completing M Tech, you can go any of the choices like Research, Job, Teacher, and own organization. I am discussing elaborately one by one:
1) PhD-Doctoral degree after M Tech: If you want to go in the teaching profession or work in the Research & Development field then you must do Ph.D. after M Tech. The job role in the teaching profession is excellent and lucrative also. But there is a challenging environment, no doubt. You have to continuously update yourself according to new technology from time to time.
2) Doing a job after M Tech: In terms of employment, you can get the same job opportunity after passing B Tech. In the industry point of view, the salary package and other issues are the same as compared to B Tech. After M Tech, you can easily find a job in research and development organizations, manufacturing firms, and IT companies as Project Manager, Research Associate, and Senior Engineers.
3) Just go the Teaching Profession: Generally, most of the students can prefer for academic jobs. It is a prevalent trend. Today the education sector is overgrowing.

Specialization in Ph.D.- A Ph.D. holder is always valued and respected.
