Unique Features for Choosing dual specialization in Graduate level (An IIT report)
There are several universities in India like Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Management (IIM) etc which offer several dual specialization programmes.
Job opportunities are also aplenty for dual specialization holders. If you have a degree in two related subjects, then that shows how focused and determined you are towards your goal. Because, of a dual specialization you have an edge over your peer who is just has BE(ECE)or BE(CSE)
On the other hand, if you have two degrees in different subjects then that helps you in exploring your career in two diverse fields. You gain knowledge in two disciplines which can help you in broadening your knowledge base.
Knowledge is now becoming interdisciplinary and multitasking. In order to keep up with this trend, a student has to think a new. Universities to rethinking and started offering options such as dual specialization courses that are gaining in popularity amongst students. “A student gains better exposure when he or she is provided with a mechanism to work on two degrees simultaneously, which have a good percentage of commonality between them. If the degree combinations are well conceived, it gives a distinct edge to the student in the market place,” says Shan Sundar Balasubramaniam, professor, computer science department, Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani.
