Answer is there are lots of opportunities in IT field. You can be a software engineer or a support engineer providing technical support.

What education need?
We can talk individually about each career opportunity in detail because each of these opportunity require different skill set, technical training and education background
Software engineer – To be a software engineer you need to be a B.Tech, MCA or any equivalent diploma. Actually you can be a software developer without these degrees but these degrees provides you base and currently most of the companies prefer technical degree for software engineers recruitment. But if you think degree is enough to get a job of software development then you are under wrong impression! You need to be logical, analytical and quick learner. You also need to have some specific technical skills or have some professional training to get industry specific technical skill. This training may be from a professional training institute.
Web developer – Web developer is basically a type of software developer and you need to have same training, skills and education qualification which a software engineer need to have.
Web Designer/ UI developer or Graphic designer – A web designer may not need to have a technical degree but in the current scenario where companies expects a web designer not only design but UI development to a degree helps to go technically strong while using scripts and UI programming. A web designer or UI developers should be creative, practical oriented, well trained, having knowledge of good color combinations. First step to be a designer is to get professional training of web designing tools and technologies and then the second step is practice more and more.
