About the course:
B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) and B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) both are undergraduate engineering courses. The duration of both courses is 4 years which are divided into 8 semesters. B.Tech/B.E. are offered by various private and government institutes or colleges which follow the standard syllabus laid down by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), University Grants Commission of India (UGC) and the National Board of Accreditation (NBA).
The students, who aspire to become engineers, opt for these courses. Both the courses offer various specializations like civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, electronics and communication engineering, instrumentation and control engineering, computer science engineering, information technology engineering, petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, biotechnology, metallurgical engineering, aeronautical engineering, aerospace engineering, biochemical engineering etc. After completing their graduation in B.Tech/B.E. courses, students can work both in the private and government sectors.
To get into an engineering college/institute, students need to first clear the entrance examination. The entrance examinations can be divided into three categories. They are national-level entrance exams, state-level entrance exams and university-level entrance examinations. It depends on the student in which exam he wants to appear. Some universities conduct their entrance examination while some accept national-level entrance exam scores for admission.
Every year, more than 28 lakh Indian students enroll in engineering courses which makes it one of the most sought-after programs after 12th in India.
The duration of B.Tech/B.E.:
B.Tech/ B.E. (Bachelor of Technology/ Bachelor of Engineering) courses are undergraduate courses. Their duration is four years. These three years are usually divided into 8 semesters.
