Is it possible to do B.Ed after completing B.E.?


Date: 21 Sep 2016   Posted By: Gayathri Venkatachalam     Group: Education    Category: India Educational Consultants   

I wish to clarify if pursuing B.Ed is possible after completing B.E. ECE in 2013 and working in an IT firm for the past 3 years. If this is possible, please let me know the ways/steps for applying for the same.

Eager to pursue B.Ed. on acquiring B.E. qualification? Our education experts will clarify if this is possible and how to go about it if so.

The eligibility criteria for admission in B.Ed. offered by IGNOU is at least 50% marks in a bachelor's degree and/or in the master's degree in sciences/social sciences/commerce/humanity or bachelor's in engineering or technology with specialization in science and mathematics with 55% marks. In addition, the candidates should be either a trained in-service teachers in elementary education or have completed an NCTE recognized teacher education program through face-to-face mode.

However, to make the matter abundantly clear, the author may consider sending an RTI application to the following -

This is a tricky question! Prima-facie, a Graduate can go for B.Ed. but there is some problem relating to 'teaching subjects'. 'Teaching subjects' means the candidate should have studied at least two papers at Graduation level which are taught in school. For example, Delhi University's eligibility conditions for B.Ed Entrance Test for the current year are as under:-

"Eligibility Criteria (for Graduates)
I) Bachelor's degree or any other qualification recognized equivalent thereto from the University of Delhi or any other recognized University with a minimum of 50% marks in aggregate. II) The candidate should have studied two (teaching) subjects for at least 200 (hundred) marks each at graduate level, and should have obtained an aggregate minimum of 50% marks in each of the two (2) subjects.

Eligibility Criteria (for Honors Graduates)
I) Honor's degree from the University of Delhi or any other qualification recognized equivalent thereto from any other recognized University, with a subject and with a minimum of 50% marks in aggregate. II) Should have studied the Honors Graduation degree in one subject with a total marks of more than 400, and should have obtained at least 50% aggregate marks in that subject.

Eligibility Criteria (for Post-Graduates)
I) A master's degree or any other qualification recognized equivalent thereto in any one of the subjects from the University of Delhi or any other recognized University, with at least 50% marks in aggregate. II) If the candidate intends to teach a different subject (other than Masters Subject as a second subject). The candidate should have studied one subject for at least 200 (two hundred) marks at the graduate level and obtained 50% in aggregate. OR I) A Master's degree or any other qualification recognized equivalent thereto from the University of Delhi or any other recognized University, with at least 50% marks in aggregate in a subject not mentioned in List-I or List-II. Such candidates should have studied two school (teaching) subjects for at least 200 (hundred) marks each at graduate level. II) The Candidate would be required to select two teaching subjects, should have obtained a minimum of 50% marks in each of the two (2) subjects studied."

As you have not studied any 'teaching subject' in your B.E, it appears that you are not eligible for admission in B.Ed.

Yes, it's possible to do a Bachelor of Education after completing a degree either in Arts or in professional degree. Usually 10+2+3 or 10+2+4 are the eligible degrees to join the
B.Ed. Studying full time course by going to college is a good way of obtaining a job in the school. Nowadays teachers are being hired only after the graduation of the B.Ed in most of the
school and the pay is according to their education as well as based on the teaching experience at school. B.Ed can be used to join as a primary school teacher or as a secondary school teacher based on the candidate's previous degree and teaching experience in school.

A BE degree holder is entitled to persue for B.Ed course if one is interested to take up teaching profession in a high School. Prior to June 2015, this was not possible but now the norm has been relaxed and with this relaxation of the norm, any aspirant having BE qualification can persue for B.Ed degree. The essential conditions for the continuance of B.Ed degree are as follow-
1) He is either attached to a primary or a secondary - school engaged in teaching.
2) One should have secured at least 50 percent marks in the graduation - level. This, too, is applicable for BE degree holders.
There are certain Institutes where admission is possible on the basis of clearance of the written tests conducted by them. The question - paper comprises different sections namely Current - affairs, Aptitude - test and General - English. The following Institutes can be contacted to have detailed informations-
1)Indira Gandhi National Open University
2) University of Delhi
3) University of Pune etc.
Since you have indicated that you are currently working in an IT firm after acquiring your BE degree, you may not be allowed to carry on B.Ed unless you change your existing profession. You have to be a school - teacher prior to taking up B.Ed degree.

As per some of the universities you need to be having teaching subject as part in your BE degree. Considering none of the subjects in BE have the teaching subjects. So you're not eligible in some universities for the B. Ed.

On relative note if you give NET/SET exam then you are eligible for teaching the students from engineering platform. You don't have to go for the primary and secondary level of education. You'd be able to teach in universities and the colleges without BEd.

Yes, you can apply B.Ed after B.E from this year. But the condition is, in your B.E course there must be either maths or physics or chemistry as a subject and you have to opt any one of these as your subject in B.Ed.
