Difference between BE and B. Tech is one of the most important and multiple times asked question which crawl through the minds of numerous aspirants. Many experts have different opinions about this but some essential points are still untouched by the them such as key differences, similarities and answers to some of the common questions which will be helpful to engineering aspirants to a great extent.
We find two types of colleges in India one which we can get degrees in many fields such as arts, science, and businesses also includes engineering and generally known as Universities and the second one which offer degree only in engineering and known as Institutes.
Degree which is offered by Universities along with engineering named their engineering degree as B.E (Bachelor of Engineering) and professional courses offered by Institutes like engineering named their engineering degree as B. Tech (Bachelor of Technology).
We can get the difference between B.E and B. Tech by these key points:
Course Type: B.E is knowledge oriented course while B. Tech is skill oriented course.
Emphasis: B.E deals with theory and focuses on strong fundamentals whereas B. Tech is laid on practical applications instead of theoretical aspects.
Course Curriculum: As B.E is more knowledge oriented, course curriculum is updated but no frequently as others but in B. Tech it is considered as more up to date as it is technology oriented.
Internships: In B.E, internships and industrial visits may be an important part of curriculum but in B. Tech, they are mandatory part of it.
Courses Offered: Universities offer degrees like science, arts and education etc along with engineering degree as B.E and Institutes offer only engineering degree as B. Tech.
Colleges: For B.E, popular colleges are NSIT, BITS Pilani and Anna University Chennai but for B. Tech, colleges are IITs, NITs and DTUs etc.
There are also some similarities between these two courses which are as follows:
- The duration of both the courses is 4 years in India.
- There is semester pattern in both courses along with 2 semesters per year and a total of 8 semesters in 4 years.
- There can be difference between the orientation and approach in both courses but the content of course are more or less the same.
Both of the courses have almost similar scope and future.
