I have completed BTech in Mechanical engineering but want to go in Computer Science field,So please suggest me PG Diploma Course or any 6 months course for learning programming languages and basics.

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 7th Apr, 2020

Don't go for PG or any diploma course because first there is no such course and second that will be waste of time.You you want simple programming language and about it basics then simply join any well reputed computer class in your city and enroll in a C,C++ course. They will teach you everything you should know as a beginner.This course can be of 2-3 months depending on your choice.

I hope this helps.
