CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is known as World's one of the most demanded and highest paid IT Certification. CCIE is highest level of Cisco Certification offered in majorly 7-8 tracks including Routing & Switching (The oldest CCIE track), Security, Service provider, Data Centre, Wireless and Collaboration. Also known as doctorate in Cisco Networking, CCIE is one of the most prestigious IT Certifications worldwide.

A fact can not be ignored that there are only around 45,000 CCIE certified engineers worldwide in 2017. Whereas even if we had 200,000 CCIE engineers, we would have employed all of them because of huge demand of knowledgeable Cisco engineers.

Talking about India, 99% of engineers have no idea that CCIE is a certification and high in demand. They have no idea that if they do serious studies of CCIE and pass CCIE lab exam, they will earn 2x more than normal Btech engineer. Even only 3% of Networking professionals worldwide pass CCIE in their lifetime.

CCIE Routing & Switching and CCIE Security Certifications are best options for fresher Btech/BCA graduates in India to get their careers kick started. Career and Scope after CCIE Certification can not be compared with any other stream in India. Imagine a student who did CCIE course as a fresher and passed the Certification and got placed at 5-6 lac package in Gurgaon/Bangalore. On the other hand if a fresher Btech student chose Java programming or PHP etc, he/she will not get starting salary package of more than 3 lacs.

And after 10 years, CCIE guy will be withdrawing over 25-30 lacs whereas the other software guy must be withdrawing 12-15 lacs package.
