About Engineering

Bachelor of Engineering (B.E / B.Tech) is one of the most preferred educational disciplines across the nation. A student receives the bachelor degree certificate on completion of the 4-year course.

There are various options to enrol into an engineering college. To get into IIT and NIT the student must give JEE tests, whereas, for the state universities one has to appear for the common entrance test (CET) of the respective state. Apart from these entrance tests, 10+2 certificates are compulsory. Since physics, chemistry, maths are the building blocks for engineers, having a science background is important. Also, certain private colleges have their own specific set of criteria and exams.

Engineering has numerous subcategories of courses. Streams like computer science, Aeronautical engineering, Information Science, civil engineering, etc are some of the most commonly preferred courses.
