    Confused whether to choose B.Tech or B.Sc

    Confused of choosing Science and Engineering? Have a look at this ISC page to clear off your doubt and our experts would give you the better suggestions for a proper career planning.

    I am going to complete my 12th standard in 2 months. I love science. I want to become a Scientist in Machine learning and AI.

    This is where the problem comes. Some say, "Choose B.Sc-M.Sc-P.hd" and some say, "Choose B.Tech-M.Tech-P.hd"

    Becoming a scientist in Artificial intelligence and Machine learning is my dream.

    I don't know what to choose! Help me out!

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are emerging as a prosperous and challenging areas in the field of science and engineering.

    It is good that you have a passion for this area and you want to make it as your career. For such a pursuit in ones life the science stream as well as the engineering stream look alike but there are some subtle variations based on which I will recommend you to go through the engineering mode.

    One of the main reasons for this is increasing use of advanced software algorithms in these areas and sky is only the limit. So it will be beneficial if one does ones engineering degree in computer science and later can specialise in AI or related areas while pursuing the M.Tech etc.

    As you may be aware that a large number of students today are lining up for the upcoming opportunities in the area of science and technology and due to this there will be and in fact is, a cut throat competition everywhere to excel and progress ahead in the desired path.

    It is therefore required that the efforts and hard work to the commensurate levels are to be done with a focus in the area where you have an aptitude to excel. Do not only confine yourself to the syllabus in your engineering course but you have to keep your eyes open up to the top world class journals and periodicals in this specialised branch so that you can keep updated with what is going on in the industry and how to take mileage out of that in your studies or research work in the longer run. In essence, what I am advising is a full time commitment to your aspirations and ambitions.

    Knowledge is power.

  • This should be one of your path,
    B.Tech in Instrumentation Engineering -> M.Tech in Robotics Engineering -> Ph.D.
    Analyzes your study in 12th score because engineering is all about math. So many students quit in between. If you are feel comfortable for in B.Sc. then prefer that route.

  • It depends on your interest what you choose. But considering that you have an interest in artificial intelligence you must do an engineering course and then do Mtech in robotics that way you will be able to do achieve what you have thought of.

  • Frankly, it is too early to decide. You are now in 12th standard and interested in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Rather you have to pursue Robotics Engineering or any other branch related to it. For such courses, Engineering is the correct path to choose and to get selected in B tech in very reputed college of Engineering/University, you need to focus more and your performance in JEE/Engineering Entrance tests are very crucial. Such a large goal can't be reached if you choose your path via B.Sc. Strictly speaking, Graduation in Science has lost its relevance in today's circumstances as Engineering Colleges have grown up in the country like Mushrooms and a man who does B Sc is under-rated and they take short route to become a non-professional employee or to pursue BEd to become a teacher. I strongly suggest go for Engineering without any day-dreaming and work hard to reach the goal.


  • The following Institutions Offer Courses on Artificial intelligence in Kerala.
    My suggestion to you is to personally contact these institutions or visit their websites to know what they ask as the minimum qualification to join their courses.

    Expertzlab IT Training Center. Kottayam, Kerala.
    CADD CENTRE. Pathanamthitta, Kerala.
    Pinnacle Training India. Alleppey, Kerala.

    Please make sure to contact them at your earliest, so that you can plan your career well in advance.

  • Its good you have thought about your future and decided two options. Choosing Arts group is three course of B.SC and a two year course for M.SC and the Phd depends upon your research, interest, publications that you
    complete within 3 years or above.

    B.Tech is a four year professional degree course.For the higher Education after completing B.Tech you can choose
    the course M.Tech which is a two year course, these both have weightage
    than the arts group professional degree. In addition to that if you are going to study further Phd specializing in the Artificial intelligence the career with be good, as the package for the B.Tech,M.Tech is more when compared to the degree of B.Sc,M.Sc. With experience you can study Phd in the same field of interest which will further boost your income and package every year in the Multinational Company in India and even have more chances of going Abroad. Its all hard work that you put in for your career to become the best of your knowledge.
