I am now fresh graduate (Bachelor Degree in Electronic Engineering) which completed studies in August 2016, then I enroll myself for a Master Degree in Telecommunication Engineering (part time by coursework) in September. I only attend classes on Sunday. Should I include the Master studies in my resume under Education category? or should I hide the fact that I am study master right now? As I worry that I might get disadvantage during interview as the employer might think that I will not be able to focus in work. I hope you guys could share some information or your experience to me. Thanks
Typically, you would include this under education on your resume with an expected graduation date:
Masters in Telecommunication Engineering, University of Houston, expected December 2017
They will be able to figure out from this that you are pursuing the degree part-time (since you are planning to work) and that you are committed to finishing it. Most employers encourage continuing professional development, including advanced degrees.
You must include that you are pursuing your masters as a part time.
I'm also an electronics engineer. According to me B.Tech is not sufficient for electronics stream. So a masters becomes a kind of necessity.
It will be improve the depth of your knowledge.
Moreover you are going for the classes on weekends so that must not be affecting you while in job.
This will show your will to learn and that's what a company want.
I would include it, definitely. It is nothing but a good thing that you consider education and training a continuing and ongoing thing.
However, I would add it not under 'education', but under extra curricular activities, or interests and hobbies. As a 'sunday only' activity I would feel it better fits here. Once you have passed of course, it should go under education, but as an interest and outside hobby, the continuation of your interest in your subject matter and your perseverance to self improve it would sit very well indeed. Also in this section there is no doubt that this is a side line of a continuing interest and will not interfere with your job or work.
Just add it to your education. Putting it in the section I originally suggested, following comments and a re-think, is actually a bit silly.
Just to say you gain nothing from leaving it off, but stand to gain a lot of credit by adding it in.
