Admissions in the UG and PG engineering courses is done through entrance examination. The admission to undergraduate programs of all the NITs and other reputed engineering colleges  is done through Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main 2019). For admission to IITs (Indian Institute of Technology), students have to appear the JEE Advanced 2019.

Some states also organize their own entrance test for providing admission to B.Tech programme. Some state level entrance exams are BCECE 2019 conducted by Bihar state, JCECE 2019 conducted by Jharkhand state, TS EAMCET 2019 by Telangana state, AP EAMCET 2019 of Andhra Pradesh state.

If you want to take admission in M.Tech programme, then you have to appear the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering GATE 2019. Some state level entrance test are also conducted for M.Tech admission like AP PGECET 2019, TS PGECET 2019TANCET 2019, CUCET 2019, etc.

Career Scope

Engineers are highly demanded in India as well as in Foreign countries. Career options in this field are huge.

    Hello.. I am a student of non med andcurrently pursuing from 12th cbse board.. I have had a doubt within me eversince.. I am not that interested in physics and thus rules out mechanical engineering for me and have a n interest in chemistry which opens up chemical engineering for me but i have often heard that it is extremely tough and making career out of it is difficult.. So can you please recommend what i should do and suggest some fields.. Thank you.
