Let’s get into the details of the degree. Let’s understand what a B. Tech degree all about and the trending streams of B. Tech available for the students.
Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) is an undergraduate level professional engineering programme. B. Tech is an undergraduate academic degree conferred after completion of a three-year, a four-year or even a five-year plan of studies at an accredited university or accredited university-level institution. B.Tech. is considered to be a skill-oriented course which enhances skills and creativity along with problem-solving, analytical skills which helps them in their professional career.
The major specializations available in B. tech, offering promising and bright career opportunities are as follows:
B. Tech in Biotechnology-
B. Tech in Biotechnology one of the most advanced disciplines of biology. It is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other areas requiring bio-products. The primary responsibility of Biotechnology Engineers is to harness biological systems as a way of producing new products. As a professional, it is necessary to get into the nitty-gritty of how natural processes occur and also find ways to adapt, alter, change and control their function.
The basic eligibility for this course is a pass in 10+2 with subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology etc. Like all the engineering courses, the duration of this course is four years. Students pursuing a career in Biotechnology get placed in chemical and textile industries, agricultural sectors, pharmaceutical firms and manufacturing industries. They can also get jobs in research laboratories run by the government or private sectors.
B. Tech in Computer Science and Engineering-
B. Tech in Computer Science & Engineering is a 4-year undergraduate engineering course on practical and theoretical knowledge of computer hardware and software. It is a very diverse engineering discipline, offering careers ranging from operating systems & machine-level programming to frontiers of Information Technology & Networking. Artificial Intelligence, mobile application development, web development, networking, next generation of object-oriented programming, cloud, internet of things, A fresh graduate can expect an annual salary of between INR 1.5 – 3.5 Lakhs which would increase with experience in the field.
B. Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering-
Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) is a 4-year program which can be pursued if a student has cleared 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as the main subjects. It involves the study of design, analysis, and application of electronics and communication circuits. B. Tech in ECE is one of the largest and most sophisticated branches of engineering. It deals with electronic devices, software development & interfaces. The applications scenario is far reaching, right from consumer electronics to industrial control & automation. With recent technological advancements, the scope for the electronics engineers is on the rise. The average annual salary of freshers ranges between INR 2–4.5 lakhs per year.
B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering-
B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering deals with the designing & manufacturing of small individual parts & devices to large systems. Mechanical Engineering also involves production, designing, and operations of machines. The course objective of Mechanical Engineering is to prepare students for applying the principles of Mechanical Engineering for designing, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. As a B. Tech graduate in Mechanical Engineering, you can earn an average minimum salary ranging between INR 2–4.5 lakhs per year. The salary package will vary according to the job profiles also, which would increase with experience in the field.
B. Tech in Civil Engineering-
B. Tech in Civil Engineering is an undergraduate engineering degree of four-year duration. 10+2 pass students with science subjects are eligible to take admission in this course who wish to make their career in the field of infrastructural development. Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines which is primarily responsible for the construction of society’s infrastructure. The course curriculum of Civil Engineering is designed in such a way to enhance students with problem-solving ability in the material science and structural analysis field and provide significant insights into design, operations, and controls involved in necessary civil engineering and construction studies. It also deals with the working, maintenance, designing, and analysis of concrete structures and analysis of various materials that are deployed in the construction of buildings that are essential for building strongly reinforced buildings.
B. Tech in Electrical Engineering-
B. tech in Electrical Engineering is a four-year undergraduate programme imparting fundamental knowledge in core disciplines such as control systems, communications, radio frequency, design signal processing, microelectronics microprocessors, power generation and electrical machines. Trained electrical engineers design electric circuits and equipment. They work on large power plants as well in small hardware companies. A qualified electrical engineer has the option to choose his/her line of work from a range of areas like computers, cell phone, electronic gadgets, radars, navigation systems, power plants, etc. Average starting salary of fresh electrical engineering graduates is Rs 4 lakh and upwards.
B. Tech in Mining Engineering-
B. Tech in Mining Engineering is a 4-year undergraduate course in mining engineering. It is a branch of engineering that deals with the theory, science, application and technology of processing and extracting resources extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment. Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for additional value. A mining engineer can handle any phase of mining operations – from experimentation and discovery of the mineral resource, through practicability study, development of plans, mine design, production and operations to mine closure. Mining engineers are therefore affected not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities but also with the emission of damage to the environment both during and after mining as a result of the change in the mining area.
After discussing the trending specializations in B. Tech, the next question arises about the top colleges and universities providing the required quality education in this domain. Sir Padampat Singhania University in Udaipur is one of the top engineering colleges of Udaipur which offers quality education, skill development and excellent career exposure to the students through its international collaborations in top companies of India and abroad. SPSU also organizes various workshops, seminars, live training sessions etc. with the Industry Experts to give an insight into the practical world to the students. SPSU offers state-of-the-art labs along with the latest technology, equipment for continuous practice and development along with the excellent infrastructure to provide an overall learning experience to the students.
