If you are in a position to get a job then prefer a job or if you are not sure of getting a job right now, then try for both (MTech and a Java certification). More over to obtain a Java certification you do not have to study full time. But for a MTech, you have to study full time and nowadays most companies do not accept part time MTech degrees but there is nothing like part time java certifications. Hope you got the difference. Aim for both!

I think the poster was referring to Master of Technology.

@hansika motwani
Why don't just do both? Get some certifications first if you want, then continue to do that MTech course. Once you have graduated, you can do a lot more certifications if you're still interested in them.

Currently I'm doing Master of Technology. I see that MTech seems to be more valuable than certifications, especially if you happen to sit in a good university. But like what I've already said. Do both if possible. That's my 2 cents.

Is "Master of Technology" an authentic academic degree? This degree does not exist in the U.S.A. What country and school has this degree?

Hi,
In India we have both B.Tech (Bachelors Of Technology) granted by IIT'S (Indian Institute Of Technology) and B.E (Bachelors Of Engineering) granted by some colleges.
Both of these degrees are equivalent to BS of Engineering in US.

Now M.Tech is Masters Of Technology and also M.E Masters of Engineering which are equivalent to MS in Technology in US.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards
Joy

In Singapore, National University of Singapore also offers this course. That course is basically Master of Engineering in Software Engineering. I guess the word Master of Technology is just some fancy name.

Thanks.

In the U.S.A. the name of the degree is Master of Science. This is the name of the degree. The subject that is studied is considered a "major". For example, if you studied Information Systems, you would get a Master of Science degree. If you studied Computer Science, you would get a Master of Science degree. There are a few other computer/software related majors, they all fall under the Master of Science degree.
