Although categorisations in medicine are very few, engineering offers plenty of specialisations for students to choose from. Computer engineering, electronics and communication, machine learning, artificial intelligence, mechanical, aerospace, and chemical engineering are some of the popular choices in India.
B. Tech admission in most states depends on various entrance tests which you must attend after school. However, several universities across the country select students based on their higher secondary merit.
If you are interested in enrolling in an engineering course this year, read this article to find out more about the eligibility criteria and admission process for B. Tech courses.
How to get B. Tech admission after the 12th class?
B. Tech and B.E. admissions are not a difficult process in Indian universities. Most admission procedures are based on national, state, or university-level entrance tests conducted each year. Several colleges select students based on their merit.
Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is the major national-level engineering entrance test in India conducted two times a year. Although JEE is attempted by students to get into an IIT or NIT, all engineering institutions in India accept the JEE score as a base for admissions. JEE will be held in January and April of 2023. Students who wish to improve their recent performance in January can attempt the April session of JEE that will be conducted on 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11 and 12 April.
Some of the other popular entrance examinations for engineering in India conducted by various states and universities are BITSAT, WBJEE, UPESEAT, VITEEE, SRMJEEE, KIITEE, etc.
All students who wish to join engineering courses must attend either of these entrance tests according to their preference. Once you are shortlisted, there will be group discussions at certain colleges followed by document verification. If all the documents provided are correct and verified, your admission will be finalised.
