B.Tech is a very popular course choice opted by Science stream students right after clearing their Class 12 exams. Aspirants are informed that there are typically two types of B.Tech degrees that they can pursue which are three years B.Tech course which candidates can pursue after completing Diploma in Engineering and four years B.Tech course in which aspirants can secure admission right after their Class 12.

After completing a B.Tech course, candidates can either pursue higher studies (one popular exam that they can give for this is GATE) or consider pursuing a job in the field of their choice. Although M.Tech is a natural course choice after completing a B.Tech course, but these days many students opt to take up an MBA course after successfully completing their B.Tech degree programme. Other options that aspirants can consider include picking up a job at a PSU (Public Sector Undertaking), taking Civil Services entrance exam or joining a private company.


Popular B.Tech Entrance Exams

The most popular B.Tech entrance exam conducted in India is JEE Main. Candidates who clear JEE Main are then eligible to appear for JEE Advanced. JEE Main is the means through which aspirants can secure admission in NITs and IIITs whereas JEE Advanced is the gateway to secure admission in the prestigious IITs of India. Apart from JEE Main and JEE Advanced, other popular B.Tech entrance exams are listed below:
