B.Tech V/s B.E.

Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) and Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) both are undergraduate degree courses and professionally equivalent. Both are 4 years degree courses offered by many universities. The main difference between B.E. and B.Tech are given below:

  • The B.Tech is a skilled and practical based degree while the B.E. is data based or theoretical-based course.

  • Internship, industrial visit, training, etc are compulsory in the B.Tech course while these are an important part of the B.E. course but not compulsory.

Eligibilty and admission

If you want to pursue B.Teh or B.E. you must have the following eligibility:

  1. You must have completed the intermediate (Higher Secondary examination) from a recognized board with at least 50% aggregate marks.

  2. You must appear in JEE Main exam or entrance exam organized by different colleges.

Admission to IIT or NIT is on the basis of a merit list prepared after JEE Advanced. But in other colleges, the admission process is completed on the basis of the percentile you have gotten in JEE Main examination. Some colleges prepare a list on the basis of the marks obtained in the higher secondary examination.

Which is better B.Tech or B.E.

So, as you have learnt both degrees are equivalent and undergraduate degree courses, B.Tech is better than B.E. because B. Tech is skill based course and you would be able to develop different skills. These skills would be helpful to you in making a career. B.Tech. is job oriented course as almost every company needs different skills in employees. Multinational companies prefer skills instead of degrees.

So, B.Tech is better than B.E in terms of job opportunities.

B.E and B.Tech both are one and the same in my opinion. The following are the similarities.

1. For the same curriculum, some universities offer BE whereas some other universities offer B Tech.

2. Both the courses are of 4 years duration.

3. Career growth will be the same for both degrees. Both are treated equally for employment either by government departments or private organisations.

4. The admission criteria for both degrees are the same and after completing 10+2 or any equivalent course will be allowed to write the entrance test and admission will be based on the rank in the entrance test.

5. Both are skill-based courses only.

Generally, technical universities in which only professional courses are offered will be awarding B.Tech whereas universities offering courses in all faculties including arts and science also will be awarding B E degrees. For example, JNTU, Hyderabad is offering B. Tech whereas Osmania University, Hyderabad is offering a B E degree.

Andhra University is awarding BE degrees to all engineering subjects whereas it is awarding B Tech degrees to Chemical Engineering passed students. The reason they say is, Chemical Engineering is dealing more with Chemical Technology.

Mainly job opportunities are the same for both engineering and technology degrees.

As far as my knowledge goes, the chances of getting a job are the same for BE or B Tech. But the institute from which you have obtained the degree is very important. Don't think about the degree awarded as BE or B. Tech, but think about the standard of the college, Ranking of the college, infrastructure and faculty in the college and placement history of the college. Based on this information, you decide on the college and join. If you get BE or B Tech, there will not be any issues. I suggest.

B.Tech or abbreviated as Bachelor of Technology, whereas B.E. stands for the Bachelor of engineering both are equally valuable in the field of sciences when it comes to course content and relevant duration.

However, in the field of professional markets there lies a significant difference. Now let us draw some reasonable pointers which make them quite different. After doing B. Tech course your approach would be more application-oriented as compared to a B.E. candidate as what you have learnt during the four-year duration, you have worked upon it in the practical life whether during internships or even in the campus. But, when we jump upon the B.E. degree where more focus is paid to the theoretical concepts as we have done during our school life. There is no such compulsion in B.E. for such internships. Hence focus is paid to grooming your theoretical base which is slightly less demanded in the job market.

These all differences never matter if you are passionate and try to groom your skills as much as possible during the four years of your undergraduate journey. If you have worked upon yourself then demand would be equal.
