Let’s introduce the term B.Tech…
In India, Bachelor of Technology degree is a professional engineering undergraduate degree awarded after completion of four years of academic study in engineering field. It is offered in many disciplines .
In simple words, we can say that “B.Tech is that UG course after which you can become an engineer”.
Bachelor of Technology is also known as Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) in many institutions. Study curriculum is same for both B.Tech and B.E. so don’t be confused in names.
The term engineering comes from Latin word Ingenium means ‘Cleverness and Ingeniare means ‘to create’.
There is a huge craze among the young students for engineering. Mostly science stream students want to become engineer and opt B.Tech after the completion of 12th.
What designation will be provided after B.Tech?
One who have successfully completed B.Tech degree in any of its discipline will be designated as “Engineer”. If you are specialized in computer science and engineering then, your job title will be ‘Software Engineer‘, those specialized in civil engineering will be titled as “Civil Engineer”.
The Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) is the 4 year full-time undergraduate course leading to the engineering degree. The duration of undergraduate engineering course varies from country to country. Many colleges/Universities of India offers B.Tech programme in various disciplines.
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
- Industrial Engineering
- Aeronautical Engineering
Apart from aforementioned disciplines, there are many other disciplines available in this field. To get the title of ‘engineer’, you have to complete your academic education in any one of the above disciplines. After getting Bachelor of Technology degree, students can further specialized in these disciplines of engineering by pursuing M.Tech course.
Which are the best colleges for pursuing B.Tech?
Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institute of Technology (NITs) are the top public institutions that offers engineering courses. There are 23 IITs and 31 NITs situated across the country. If you want to pursue B.Tech from these colleges then you have to appear the engineering entrance exams. Many other institutions/Universities apart from these also offers engineering education.
Some best B.Tech colleges are listed below:
- Indian school of Mines, Dhanbad
- Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra
- SRM University, Chennai
- Manipal Institute of Technology
- Dehradun Institute of Technology, dehradun
