B.Tech Production and Industrial Engineering

Ambitious of becoming a production or an industrial engineer? Want to make a career in this specialized field of mechanical engineering? Learn in this page the details of the course B.Tech Production and Industrial Engineering. Also learn what a production or industrial engineer does.

Course Name: B.Tech Production and Industrial Engineering
Group: B.Tech
Stream: Engineering
Course Category: Industrial
Duration: 4 years


The role of a production and an industrial engineer is quite a similar one. Both are specialized areas in the mechanical stream of engineering. A production engineer primarily focuses on the efficiency of the production processes and the manufacturing systems to optimize production to the maximum. They are mainly associated with industries concerned with manufacturing. An industrial engineer on the other hand is suitable for any kind of industry, not only the manufacturing ones. Thus by undergoing this course you have the added knowledge and skills of both the domains that makes it easier to get a job in the manufacturing industries or the industrial world in general.

Eligibility and course duration

Should have passed 10+2 or an equivalent qualification with the subjects physics, chemistry and math. Admission to these courses are mostly through JEE Mains kind of entrance exams. Need to come in the merit list for the top colleges.

Duration of the course is 4 years.
