Answer:

You can either
- prepare and take certification exams or
- join non-certified courses and enhance your knowledge in a subject/ technique.

Course selection should be based on your interest and what you have studied during your B.tech. course.
If you are interested in programming and software development, you can either prepare to get certification in a language/ technology or join some advanced level non-certified course.
e.g. if you have studied Java recently then get certification in Core Java (Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform) or learn Advanced Java (J2EE, J2ME, etc.).
If you are interested in Database management, then get certification as Oracle DBA/ MCDBA, etc. or learn advanced dba techniques.
If you want to join Sales/Technical Support department in BPO/Call Centre sector in future, you can join soft skills or communication skills enhancement programme.
If you are interested in Networking & Hardware, there are many certification options e.g. MSCE, CCNA, C+, N+, Linux, etc. Or you can join some reputed hardware & n/w training center where you can enhance your practical knowledge.
Similarily, if you have interest in software architecture or engineering, enhance your knowledge in that area.

Some other areas in IT include security, testing, etc. in which you can study and gain more knowledge.

Certification programmes are tough to crack but if you study hard and practice well you can clear any exam. You can prepare for these exams during your regular classes also. If you choose a subject depending on your course curriculum, it will be better.

In case, you want to join for some institute to study an advanced or new course, choose an institute which provide quality education through qualified and experienced faculty. Better to choose only  one course during a semester.
