B.E and B.Tech Engineering Courses – A brief juxtapose

B.E and B.Tech Engineering Courses – According to the National Council of Advanced Economic Research results, engineering remains the most sought-after undergraduate course in India. Either B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) or B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) is the engineering courses offered by many institutes. One of the most commonly asked questions by the engineering aspirants is, the difference between the two degrees.

Dealing more with theoretical concepts & principles, Engineering is a “science”, for practical purposes, technology deals more with the application of these theories. But, more or less, both B.E. & B.Tech courses offered by various engineering colleges/ institutes have a similar curriculum. Both degrees are valued equally by prospective employers. What matters more is from where you obtain your B.E/ B.Tech degree. i.e the reputation of the engineering college.

B.E and B.Tech

When compared to the BE course which is more theoretical, B.Tech course is somewhat more practically intensive. From their names itself, Engineering Vs. Technology, the difference (which is quite minor) between the two degrees can be understood

B.Tech            

Done directly after a student’s 10+2, Bachelor in Technology is also a graduate level program. The candidate has to appear for any state or national level engineering after a student’s 12th exam entrance through which he or she will get admittance into a college that provides a technology course. There are many such universities. If one is interested in modifying structures to enhance their quality, the course of this degree focuses on application and skill-based study and is useful

On practicals, B. Tech is skill oriented which gives more emphasis. For B. Tech courses, Industrial visits and internships are necessary.

B.E

Done directly after a student’s 10+2, bachelor in Engineering is a graduate level program. The candidate has to appear for any state or national level engineering entrance through which he or she will get admittance into an engineering college post a student’s 12th exam. The course of this degree focuses on the theoretical knowledge needed to innovate technology and make new technical gadgets.

On the theoretical part of the curriculum, B.E. is considered a knowledge-oriented course where more emphasis is given.

Industrial visits and internship might be an essential part of the curriculum

Points confirming lack of conception

While B.E. is offered by private institutes, B. Tech is offered by government institutes

  • Institutes like Netaji Subash Institute of Technology, University of Mumbai (Department of Chemical Technology) which are government institutes offer a BE degree and there are many private institutes that offer a B.Tech degree as well remain as a total façade.
  • No industrial training in BE or B.Tech
  • Post-semester 6, in both, BE and B.Tech, industrial training is compulsory
  • More than the other B. Tech or BE is valued
  • Your performance and to a lesser extent your college is what matters. Over the other, Neither is preferred.
