M.Tech. (Digital Electronics and Communication) is a  2 year Post Graduate course in the domain of Electronics and communication engineering with specialization in Digital electronics and communication-related aspects. A minimum of 50% (relaxable for reserved category candidates) marks at UG level is the least which almost all the institutes desire from applying candidates as an eligibility criterion.

Some of the popular colleges offering the course are:

  • Ambedkar Institute of Technology
  • BMS College of Engineering
  • Government Engineering College Ajmer
  • Institute of Engineering Technology
  • ITM

The fee for the course varies between INR 57,000 to 3, 85,000 in India. The variation in fee is based on the location and nature of university (that is government, state/private/deemed etc.).

M.Tech in Digital electronics and communication admissions are based on Common Entrance Test (CET) based selection method as well as merit-based selection criteria that is the percentage of marks obtained at Under Graduate (UG) level by the aspiring candidate.

Majority of the colleges and universities that are offering admissions to the course through CET mechanism rely on the score of All India level common entrance exams like GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering), UPSEE, AUCET while some of them opt for a separate entrance exam of their own (Like BITS HD, UPES, LPUNEST etc).

The course is structured and organized in a manner so, as to accord domain-specific skills and knowledge to the masters of technology students. This is done to equip them with a holistic knowledge of the subject that will enable them to take on the day to day challenges that would come in the persecution of their skill.

M.Tech in Digital electronics and communication postgraduates have a wide range of job opportunities like Service engineer, Field test engineer, Network planning engineer, Software analyst, Technical consultant etc. After completion of post graduation, one may pursue further studies like M.Phil and Ph.D. in the said subject or may take up job opportunities associated. The average salary ranges between INR 18,000 and 22,000 a month for a fresh pass out.
