Engineering degrees after 12th (10+2)

Engineering is a great career option.Engineers always have choice of good jobs as well as creative option to leverage their talent.There are 3 main engineering degrees available after completing schooling (10+2).
  • BE (Bachelor of engineering)
  • BTech (Bachelor of technology)
  • B.Arch. (Bachelor of Architecture)

Bachelor of Engineering (B.E)

The Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) is an undergraduate academic degree awarded to a student four years of studying engineering at university or college.In India,B.E. is equivalent to BE/BTech is a degree awarded by universities to students who have completed four years (eight semesters) worth of coursework related to a specific branch of engineering.The AICTE and the Indian Government are responsible for approving engineering colleges and branches/courses. Only those universities which have been approved by these bodies can award degrees which are legally valid and are accepted as qualifiers for jobs in the central/state government and in the private sector.

Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech)

Bachelor of Technology degree is used by the highly ranked and autonomous institutes such as Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT formerly UDCT) for professional engineering programs. Most other institutions in India are affiliated to a university and thus use the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree.Eligibility for entry is 10+2 years of school education. Generally the first year (first two semesters) is common to all branches, and has the same subjects of study. Courses divert after first year. The medium of instruction and examination is English. Most universities follow the Marks System for grading instead of the Credit System. Generally, universities in India offer BE/BTech in the following branches: Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical (and Electronics), Electronics (and Communications and/or Telecom) Engineering, Instrumentation and Control Engineering, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, Chemical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Production Engineering, Systems Science and Biomedical Engineering.

B.Arch. (Bachelor of Architecture)

The Bachelor Architecture, Bachelor Architecture (Interior Design) is a five-year full time professional degree programme accredited by the Council of Architecture, New Delhi- a statutory body of Government of India that regulates architectural education in India. Stage-I of the B.Arch. programme is also accredited by the Commonwealth Association of Architects, London. The B. Arch programme is recognized by the Indian Institute of Architects.
