Quick Introduction to the Bachelor of Technology
B Tech (Bachelor Of Technology) is a full-time four years undergraduate (UG) course specially designed to make students skillful by their stream of engineering. The curriculum of this course is based more on the application or practical part than the theoretical part. Students can get a lateral entry in this four years course by having some specific eligibility criteria.
After the completion of this course, students are offered great internship opportunities to work and to gain practical knowledge about the actual application of their respective fields of specialization in engineering. B. Tech degree holders can work in the private sector and also in government sector companies. The average salary of an engineer in India is 6 lakhs to 10.5 lakhs per annum with an average ranking college and for some deserving candidates with higher ranking colleges or with quality skills or with both of them salaries can range from 6.5 lakhs to 1.5 crores per annum.
Some Popular Streams of Engineering
There are some popularly taken streams or departments of engineering by students in India due to high demand in job sectors. They are mentioned below:-
Computer Science Engineering (CSE): This stream relates to computing, programming, algorithms, software, and hardware development of computers.
Electrical engineering (EE): This stream is designed to study theoretical and practical applications of electrical equipment, electromagnetism, and everything related to the term electricity.
Mechanical Engineering (ME): This course is designed to analyze, maintain, and manufacture mechanical systems or machines used in the e-commerce industry by combining principles of mathematics and laws of engineering physics with material science.
Civil Engineering (CE): The department deals with the study of design, construction, and maintenance of building, bridges, monuments, parks, railway stations, dams, canals, etc.
Artificial Intelligence (AI): Based on the study of artificial human intelligence in machines so they can think, talk, and perform various actions of humans.
Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE): This refers to the study and manufacturing process of devices of nonlinear and active electrical components like electronic, integrated circuits, etc.
Chemical Engineering (Ch. E): Study of this department deals with the manufacture of chemicals used for industrial purposes.
Entrance Exams for B.Tech Colleges
There are several entrance exams available for students to get admission in high-ranked Government colleges, IIT’s, NIT, and Private colleges. The main entrance exam which is mostly attempted by every student at least one time is JEE Mains and JEE Advance. BITSAT, VITEEE, SRJEEE, WBJEE, KITEE, COMEDK, MHT CET, and BCECE are some other entrance exams of India for getting admission to a reputed college or government college or IIT’s/NIT’s. Exam dates and the latest changes in the syllabus are on their official websites.
Eligibility Criteria for Admission in B.Tech
Students must have qualified their class 12th board examinations with at least 45% in all the three subjects of science which are physics, chemistry, mathematics and also one additional subject is required either biology or students can take most preferable computer application. Good colleges have higher cut-offs in that case students need more marks in the three subjects (PCM) in their higher secondary board examinations.
Along with that students have to clear competitive examinations to get admission in an engineering college like JEE Mains, COMEDK, BITSAT, or their state common entrance examinations. Government colleges don’t take direct admissions while some low-ranked private colleges offer this course with the procedure of direct admission with an average cut of 45% to 65% with subjects PCM. Counseling process and seat allotment for various engineering entrance exams like JEE mains and JEE advanced are done by allocation authority of JOSAA which is based on the all India rank of candidates through entrance exams.
How to Get Lateral Entry in B.Tech?
Lateral entry in 4 years B Tech (Bachelor Of Technology) course is something where students get direct admission in the second year of B. Tech degree course by completing either three years diploma in engineering or B.Sc or something equivalent to that with at least 45% to 55% of marks in physics, chemistry, and mathematics as a compulsory subject.
Difference Between BE and B.Tech
Students mostly get confused between BE and B. Tech but they are different in the perspective of their orientation and subjects.
|Bachelors of Engineering (BE)||Bachelors of Technology (B Tech)|
|This course is based on the theoretical approach of study and application of engineering science which leads to the development of useful technical gadgets and innovation in the field of technology.||This course is based on application engineering and deals with the practical study of technology. It is a skill-based program where students learn the skills of modification and enhancement of various technical gadgets by combining principles of engineering and technology.|
Admission Procedure in B.Tech
Admission procedure in any 4 years B. Tech degree course takes place by cracking entrance exams of either national/state or institute level. Students get admission to B. Tech colleges according to the allocation authority of their respective entrance examinations after fulfilling the eligibility criteria mentioned above.
Average Fees and Cut Off in B.Tech Colleges
Almost 15% of colleges in India that offers B Tech (Bachelor Of Technology) degree costs an average fee of 1 to 2 lakhs for 4 years which mainly includes government colleges. Average fee structure of IITs and nit’s ranges from 3 to 5 lakhs for 4 years. Most of the private colleges are having a high fee structure in India which ranges from 4 to 10 lakhs sometimes for 4 years b. Tech degree course in specific specializations.
Government colleges and IIT’s or NIT’s keeps a cut-off of 90% to 95% every year for deserving candidates, while private colleges keep their cut-offs between 45% to 75%.
Scholarships Available for Engineering Aspirants
There are some state-level scholarships available for students who wish to become an engineer but cannot afford them due to the high expenses and fee structure of an engineering college. Private institutions offer students scholarships based on their marks in entrance exams of their institute or class 12th board exam marks.
Required skill setup for Job opportunities after B.Tech
Students must learn a good ability to communicate in both verbal and written with a knowledge of their core subjects. They should be familiar with the economical industry of their specialization in engineering and teamwork. Multitasking, creativity, the skill of leadership, and knowledge of computer or it sector are required to be job-ready after b. Tech.
Internship Opportunities and Job Sector for B.Tech Students
Students get internship opportunities in various top companies based on their job profiles for b. Tech graduates. If companies are impressed with the knowledge and skills of the individual they keep them for a permanent job in their company with a package of a good salary. Good colleges provide permanent jobs to deserving candidates in some popular and high-paying companies. Some top recruiting companies are
IBM global services
Note that it is very important for candidates to clear all rounds of an interview of the respective company and job profiles they have applied for. Salaries of different companies are based on the performance and knowledge shown in the interview.
