B.E/B.Tech – Engineering
Bachelor of Technology is an undergraduate academic degree conferred after the completion of a three or four year programme of studies at an accredited university or accredited university-degree level college in the Commonwealth of Nations, Norway, Republic of Ireland, the United States, and other countries. The common abbreviation for Bachelor of Technology is B.Tech., or B.Tech.(Hons), if awarded with honours.
What is B.E.?
Bachelor of Engineering (commonly abbreviated as B.E. or B.Eng.) is an undergraduate academic degree awarded to a student after three, four or five years of studying engineering at an accredited university in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Finland, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Nigeria, China, India and Pakistan. It is a professional degree that involves undertaking some engineering work. This is controlled by the national professional engineering society or institute that accredits the universities, usually regulated by law.
What is the difference between BE and B.Tech?
There is no difference between these two degree courses BE and B-Tech. Both are engineering degrees and their scope and value are the same. You will never be rejected higher education or a job just because you are a BE and not a B-tech holder or vice versa. The only difference in the name is because in those colleges/universities that offer only engineering courses, the degree is known as B-tech and in those colleges/universities where other courses are also offered along with engineering, the title is given as BE. If you notice, there is no college/universities that provides both BE and B-Tech courses as both are the same.
B. E. [Bachelor of Engineering] is more theory and knowledge based whereas B. Tech. [Bachelor of Technology] is more practical or skills oriented. The focus in B. Tech. is more on acquiring skill and experience with more practical exposure and hands-on-experience before embarking upon a job.
Duration of B. Tech:
Bachelor of Technology is a 4 years long course divided into 8 semesters. Each year is divided into two semesters.
Eligibility Of the B.Tech:
Any person who has cleared XII with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) from a recognized board or institution like CBSE or state board is eligible to go for this course.
How to Get Admission in B.Tech:
There are various Entrance Exams for Engineering in India to get into this course. But some entrance tests that are held at national level can help you get admission into prestigious colleges.
JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is carried out in the month of April for admission to government aided engineering colleges. It is divided into two steps:-
- JEE Mains
- JEE Advanced
Students as per his/her interest can be specialized in the following B.Tech disciplines:
- Computer Science and Engineering
- Information Technology
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Aerospace Engineering
