B.Tech Course in IIITs through JEE Main
- B.Tech admissions in India are taken at the national and state levels with the help of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
- JEE Main is a common entrance exam to offer admission to eligible students to different undergraduate programs at IIITs.
- The minimum eligibility to get admission to a B.Tech course is passing Class 12 with compulsory subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or Biotechnology/Biology and thereafter take JEE Main entrance exam.
- Candidates also have to fulfil the JEE Main Eligibility Criteria to be able to sit for the entrance exam. Generally, the candidates need to have at least 60% aggregate and in individual subjects taken together for admissions in IIITs in India.
- Finally, students who clear the JEE Main Cut Off (Qualifying) can appear for JoSAA Counselling and choose their desired IIITs based on the expected college cut off ranks.
The following courses are offered through JEE Main at various IITs in India-
|B.Tech + M.Tech (Dual Degree)||5 years|
|B.Tech and MBA (Dual Degree)||5 years|
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.
Differences Between a B.E. and B.Tech Degree
The main difference between these two 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. 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. 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 B.E. 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.
There are two types of engineering program offered at IIITs including:
- 3-year BE/B. Tech after Diploma in Engineering
- 4-year BE/B. Tech after Class 12
