  • Students often get confused between IIT and IIIT as both look similar but IITs in India offer multiple engineering branches.
    On the other hand, IIITs mostly offer Information Technology related B. Tech courses like ECE, CS, IT, etc.
  • However, both IIITs and IITs are among the top engineering colleges in India.
  • To get into an IIIT, candidates are required to clear JEE Main exam and on the basis of AIRs, JEE Main Counselling is conducted.

IIITs in India: What is B.Tech?

  • Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) is a four-year professional course, which is divided into eight semesters and is being offered in various IITs, IIITs, NITs and private colleges.
  • The entire four-year course is divided into various academic activities such as seminars, practicals, lectures, projects/research work and industrial training.
  • Teachings provided in first year are the same for all the B. Tech aspirants but for the second and third-year students, education is provided as per the chosen specialization.
  • In the final year of study, the students are offered a choice of elective subjects and offered opportunities for industrial training as well.

Main Difference between a B.E and B.Tech Degree?

The main difference between these two degree programs is in regard to the course material provided and the orientation of the program.

The following table will help you seek a better understanding of the difference between these two programs.

Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech)
B.E. course is a study based on theory. It is more theoretical and knowledge oriented. B.Tech is a skill/data-oriented course and is more about application engineering.
B.E. course deals with engineering aspects of Science. B.Tech course include offering teaching related to all the technical aspects of Science
B.E. is designed to develop innovative types of equipment and useful technical gadgets in the Science and Technology sector. B.Tech is focused on the principles of engineering and technology and helps improve the quality of teaching.

Both BE and B. Tech courses provide an opportunity to students to study the subjects of their choice. The courses are of a duration of 4-years and are spread across 8 semesters.

  • To be eligible for the B. Tech course, the candidates need to give the JEE (Main) first which is conducted two times in a year.
  • Each year, lakhs of candidates give JEE Main which acts as a gateway to give JEE Main test.
  • As per JEE Main exam pattern is objective in nature and questions from subjects Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics are asked in the test.

Therefore, all the IIITs, although autonomous, are somehow related to each other as they have a common admission process. The following courses are offered through JEE Main at various IITs in India-

B.Tech 4 years
B.Tech + M.Tech (Dual Degree) 5 years
B.Tech and MBA (Dual Degree) 5 years
