I am Software Architect working with one of the leading Mobile phone manufacturer. To say about my education and work experience, I have completed Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering in 2008 and I have industry experience of almost 7+ years.
Since I am doing a full time job that I cannot discontinue due to financial problems, can I know what all are the possible part time or distant education programmes available which are authentic, valued by industry experts and which will suite a person like me with the mentioned background.
