Engineering is a piece of science and technology which comprises many fields and skills such as being scientists, inventors, great thinkers, designers, builders, etc. The main focus of this field is on how to design, build, or invent something and maintain machines, software, hardware, and systems, etc. with the use of some mathematical calculation and science.
Pursuing an engineering degree is a popular career option not only in India but also in other countries too. Students have a plethora of career prospects in engineering because of the steady growth of industries, the economy, and so on. There is a lot of scope for engineers in private, public as well as in the government sectors.
Engineering offers courses not only for the students seeking admission in the undergraduate field but also for the students who want to pursue their careers in postgraduate and doctoral degrees too.
It offers a Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) and Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) courses at the undergraduate level, which is a professional degree program that comes up with a duration of 4 years. B.E. course focuses mainly on the scientific theory concepts and experiments, whereas B.Tech. emphasizes more on practical application in the field of science and technology.
Engineering also offers a master's degree program known as Masters of Engineering (M.E.) and Masters of Technology (M.Tech.) as one of the career options for the students who have been completed their graduation in the engineering and technology field. Course Duration of Master degree in Engineering is of 2 Years.
In Engineering, B.E. / B.Tech. offers a wide range of specialization in different streams, such as Computer Science Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering. Students can pick among any one of the streams according to their interest or liking.
