    Already you have done 3rd year in B.Tech. So, you have a clear idea about database/RDBMS. You wanted to be a SQL Developer. For this purpose, you can go for SQL Server (MCSA) or Oracle (Oracle Database Sql Certified Associate) certifications. There are other certification also like MySQL/IBM. If you think big, you can consider SAP HANA. It is better to get a job through campus interview/ other source and then you can go for certification according to the company's demand. It may be possible that the company provides the cost of your certifications.

    Please also tell that do I need to learn other languages like java or c++ provided that I have lack of interest in such languages? But I am quite good at web designing. And also give your suggestion whether to go for some courses or internship now (for this vacation).

    Any of the other languages would be a plus like C#, VB, JAVA or PHP to name a few. The thing with those languages is they may be job specific. I work for a company that use all of them but a vast majority of the code is written in VB. Another company I know relies more on C# code. So it depends on when you are looking for a job as to what options will be available to you.

    Look, C++ is such a language that helps to learn Java/C#. Though C++ is a little bit heard to learn. But its syntax/other concepts help to lean Java. If you are interested to learn programming language, you can go for Java. As you mentioned, for web designing, Java can also help to learn this technic. However .NET is also a popular in the software market. But all are depending that, which type of company you will join. Hope for the best.

    Both are good, either it is MS SQL Server/Oracle. You can go for any one. Though SQL Server is more GUI feature than Oracle. For certification etc. you can link their official website.

    When go for certifications, always go for Global Certifications. Don't agree to do any local certification if it is less cost than global certifications. Keep in mind, global certifications are accepted internationally.

    It is better to be first expert in one language.

    If you are looking for one language to start with, Java seems to be used everywhere. I have worked in about a dozen companies over the last 30+ years. Just about all of them used Java. I may not have been the main coding language but was used in conjunction with VB, C#, C+ and many other languages.
