MTech or PhD

  1. Hi I am a Post Graduate in Physics from India. I am very much interested in nanotechnology and Material science. I am not interested in teaching, I wish to work in the industry. Which choice is better- doing an M Tech or PhD? I am confused as I heard people with M Sc- M Tech combinations are not preferred as much as the B tech-M Tech ones. Is that true?
    Please reply.

    i doubt employers are interested in the name of your degree, they tend to be more interested what courses you took, and probably the highest degree only.

    You will likely have to deal with teaching duties during PhD studies and if you happen to get a faculty position. So PhD probably isn't for you
