The Bachelor of Technology is a graduate academic degree, Bachelor of technology degree programs aim to help students become professionals who are well versed in technical specifications related to technology in information systems. Many universities offer opportunities to learn the theory of technology while providing hands-on learning experiences.
Engineering is one of the branches of science and technology concerned with the design, building and use of machines, engines and structures.
The full meanings of B.E and B.Tech are Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Technology respectively. Both the courses are graduate degree being offered by many Government Colleges/Universities as well as approved private institutions.
The syllabus and course content in .B.E degree are mostly based on theoretical concepts in addition to some practical knowledge in the campus workshops and laboratories, Whereas syllabus and courses in B.Tech Degree cover mostly practical along with essential theoretical concepts on the subjects of study in the institute’s laboratory and workshops, There is no broad difference in the syllabus and courses because both the courses cover both theoretical and practical studies during same period of study, Institutions like Indian Institute of Technology(IIT) offer B.Tech degrees to all engineering courses where as other Government Institutions like Jadavpur and Shibpur Universities etc. in India offer B.E Degree to all the same types of engineering courses.
Both the above courses are of four years duration with eight semesters at the intervals of six months on each year.
The Bachelor of Technology studies has decided to research and teaching about scientific and technology in its social context, where the research examines science and technology both in contemporary societies and through historical investigations and their association forms of knowledge, expertise, social organization and controversy, this also includes interest in developing science and technology studies own knowledge production techniques methodology and interventions. The high quality with multidisciplinary field of science and technology studies, including contributions from anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy, political science, educational science and communication studies.
The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all-India examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science, The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) conducted in eight zones across the country by the GATE Committee comprising of Faculty members from IISc, Bangalore and other seven IIT’s on behalf of the National Coordinating Board, Department of Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development. The GATE score/rank is used for admissions to Post Graduate Programmes (ME, M.Tech, MS, Direct Ph.D.) in institutes like IITs and IISc etc. with financial assistance offered by MHRD. PSUs too use the GATE scores for recruiting candidates for various prestigious jobs with attractive remuneration.
Based on the score achieved in GATE, admissions are offered in IITs, IISc, and NITs, and abundant opportunities for campus placements. The GATE score of a candidate reflects the relative performance level of a candidate. The score is used for admissions to various post-graduate education programs (e.g. Master of Engineering, Master of Technology, Doctor of Philosophy) in Indian higher education institutes, with financial assistance provided by MHRD and other government agencies. Recently, GATE scores are also being used by several Indian public sector undertakings (i.e., government-owned companies) for recruiting graduate engineers in entry-level positions. It is one of the most competitive examinations in India.
The examination commences for providing admission to M.Tech/M.E programme offered by the IITs, NITs, GFTI and various private institutions. Candidate may get the direct admission to Ph.D. programme through GATE Score. Many public and private companies consider the GATE score card for recruitment purpose.
Eligibility criteria for GATE exam are as follows – for B.E/B.Tech/B.Pharma – Bachelor’s degree holders in Engineering/ Technology (4-years after 10+2 or 3 years after Diploma in Engineering/Technology) and those who are in the final year of such programs, presently in the final year or already completed.
