(Computer Science & Engineering)

Ph D in Computer Science & Engineering is a research degree and one of the main job opportunities after PhD is a faculty position in Universities and Colleges. This option, world over, is one of the most preferred options for people with PhD. In faculty positions it should be mentioned that for Computer Science, as there is a shortage of qualified faculty in most good institutions, there are always openings in places like IITs/NITs/RECs/Central Universities, etc. In addition, now some private universities as well as institutions set up by overseas universities coming up which also are looking for Doctorate in CSE. However, teaching is by no means the only option for a PhD. India today is  becoming a center for global R & D. Due to the quality of its manpower, and the lower cost, many organizations have started setting up R&D centers in India. And these centers are looking for PhDs (and not finding them, as there are not enough getting produced!) Some example of these are IBM India Research Center in New Delhi, GE Research in Bangalore, Mentor Graphics in Hyderabad, Cadence, etc. hence one can choose to be in the academic field or the corporate sector after a PhD. Besides these research centers, most of the big Indian IT companies have started high end technology development and consulting, and R&D centers or cells, in which they need PhDs. Almost all the IT majors - TCS, Infosys, Wipro, etc. employ a large number of PhDs (upward of about 50 each) and are always looking for more people to enhance their R&D activities. This activity will increase in these companies as these companies become larger.
