The following universities/institutes offer B.Tech degree in distance education mode. However, the standards, job prospects and arrangement of practical classes are required to be checked and verified before admission:-
1. Jain Vishva Bharati Institute, Directorate of Distance Education, Shantiniketan, Ground Floor, 8 Camac Street, Calcutta 700017.
2. Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University - B.Tech in Civil, Computer Science, Electrical & Electronics, Electronics and Communication and Mechanical Engineering.

I feel that IGNOU and Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University are the most reliable among the universities/ institutes mentioned in the above list. Alternatively, the author can also take the AMIE route. However,before taking the plunge, the author must ensure the availability/facility of practicals and approval of the course by AICTE.
