Courses & Eligibility

What are the courses available in Engineering Field?

Engineering courses are available at diploma level, undergraduate level, postgraduate and doctoral levels.

Diploma Course leading to Diploma in Engineering

It is a 3-year course which students can pursue after the completion of 10 years of school education. Diploma holders are eligible for lateral entry to the third semester Engineering Courses. Diploma in Engineering is offered in various disciplines.

Undergraduate Course leading to B.Tech Degree

Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) is the 4-year full-time undergraduate course in engineering. This course can be done with one of the engineering discipline. Prerequisites for pursuing B.Tech is 10+2 passed with PCM group from the recognized educational board.

Postgraduate Course leading to M.Tech Degree

Postgraduate course in engineering resulting in the award of a Master of Engineering (M.E.) or Master of Technology (M.Tech) degree . It is a 2-years course that one can pursue after completing a 4-year undergraduate program in engineering (B.Tech).

Doctoral Course in Engineering

Doctoral of Philosophy in Engineering (Ph.D) is the advanced research course in engineering that has the duration of 3 years. Course duration varies from college to college. Students admitted to the Ph.D. program should have a master degree in respective discipline.


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). For admission to IITs (Indian Institute of Technology), students have to appear the JEE Advanced.

Some states also organize their own entrance test for providing admission to B.Tech programme. Some state level entrance exams are BCECE conducted by Bihar state, JCECE conducted by Jharkhand state, TS EAMCET by Telangana state, AP EAMCET 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). Some state level entrance test are also conducted for M.Tech admission like AP PGECET, TANCET, CUCET, etc.

Career Scope

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

Career Options After B.Tech

After B.Tech, you can go for a job. Some colleges provide campus placement to their students. If you will not get campus placement, then you can apply for the companies by our own. If you have a dream to run your own company then you can also become an entrepreneur.

Career scope in private as well as in government fields is also available. Students can apply for Indian Engineering Services (IES) examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).

After B.Tech, students can also go for higher studies and pursue or MBA.

Career Options After M.Tech

Teaching and research careers are open for engineers who hold postgraduate degrees in engineering. If you are holding degree then you will get preference or gain higher position in corporate companies. Both private as well as government sector gives priority to candidate with a higher degree.
