B.Tech is considered one of the most pursued degrees in India because of the career options it renders.Bachelor of Technology degree is a 4 year full-time undergraduate course that offers specialisations in various disciplines. Every branch of B.Tech makes you eligible for various career options not just in India but globally. The relevance, importance and popularity of engineers is undeniably the highest. In India, a degree is B.Tech is considered to be good investment. Though the fee of this degree varies from college to college, it usually is on a higher side compared to other degree that are available in the country. Despite that, people from all segments of the country appear for this exam each year with record-breaking entries. A lot of reputed universities in India have rolled out their scholarship module which further has eased out financial stress for thousands of students.
The most common branches of engineering in India are: Civil Engineering that encompasses planning, construction and maintenance of structures like buildings, roads, stadiums, dams etc.; Mechanical Engineering, that deals with concepts of Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Robotics, Kinematics, Structural Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Power Sector, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning sector and Aerospace; Computer Science that includes Programming, Software Development, Computer Science etc.; Electrical and Electronics Engineering that deals with designing, developing, testing, and administering the manufacturing of Electrical Equipment, such as Electric Motors, Radar and Navigation Systems etc.
Besides the above mentioned degrees, there has been an advent of courses like ‘Computer Science Engineering IBM’ where Industry Relevant curriculum jointly developed with academicians and IBM Professionals. Computer Science engineering scope amplifies with an international tie-up like this.
With technology, it is becoming almost impossible for some universities to catch up with times, but fortunately, some universities are at it and doing it quite successfully.
How are Indian universities pacing up to be on a par with the international ones?
In the last few years, the scope of engineering across all its branches is soaring. A lot of new-age colleges/universities have emerged in the past few years to render high-tech, modern, multi-disciplinary mode of study.
The prime universities in India are adopting modern approach to impart knowledge. Multi-disciplinary approach to engineering, a curriculum designed to keep pace with technological innovations, industry demand and contemporary academic research, experiential project-based practice to prepare next-gen engineers are some prime methodologies that emerging universities in India have adopted.In fact, immersion programmes rendered by such universities are gaining a lot of traction from people as it gets them mandatory international exposure.
With new-age universities, students also learn future ready technologies like, Robotics & Automation, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Internet of Things and Design Thinking. All these things have contributed in making India on a par with some of the best universities/colleges of the world.
