Career in Engineering

Hundreds of career options have been opened for students with changing times, but  even today, most students’ choice is career in engineering. with The rapid technology that is developing today, this field is attracting the youth as this field has good standing, good salary and work satisfaction. However, becoming an engineer is not as easy. You will have to work hard for this.

After 12th, it is important to choose the field of engineering that your science and maths are strong. The information of these two subjects is very important in any branch of engineering. Now you can also make a career in the new stream of engineering in search of something new in this field. In addition to traditional fields like civil, computer, electrical, electronic, new fields like Space Technology, Food Technology, Aerospace Engineering, Nuclear Physics, Nanotechnology and Telecom Technology are also open to you. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is considered the best for engineering studies in the country. For this, there is a Joint Intense Examination, which you have to work hard to clear. Apart from this, there are many private institutes where you can take admission in the desired engineering field.

What is B.E. and B.Tech?

B.E. means – Bachelor of Engineering, while B.Tech means – Bachelor of Technology.  Bachelor’s degree is known as B.E. in the areas of traditional engineering based on civil, mechanical, while the course based on technology (especially computer technology) is known as B.Tech. By the way, both of these are complementary and equivalent names of each other and both courses are of four years.

How to start a career in engineering?

For admission in B.E. or B.Tech course of engineering, it is mandatory to have 12th pass with physics, chemistry and maths. Students joining the XII examination can also join, but admission is finally finalized after passing the entrance.

Entrance Examinations for Engineering

Many examinations are organized every year at the All India and State level for admission to engineering courses. Most important is JEE exam for the IIT JEE and other top engineering colleges to be taken in the prestigious IIT of the country.


Every student who has a dream of  career in engineering wants to get admission in Indian Institute of Technology ie IIT. For this admission test is taken which is IIT JEE.   students who have passed XII examination with Physics, chemistry and Maths can take the exam. Through this examination, students can take admission in IITs (Delhi, Kanpur, Roorkee, Mumbai, Guwahati, Kharagpur, Chennai etc.) Apart from this, the entry of Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad (now IIT status), Banaras Hindu University IT Center and Marine Engineering and Research Institute (Kolkata) also gets entry on the basis of this examination.

State Level Engineering Examinations

State-level engineering entrance examinations are organized by almost all the states of the country, on the basis of which admission is provided in the engineering colleges of that state. 85 seats of most state-level engineering colleges are reserved for the students of the respective state, whereas for the remaining 15 percent seats candidates from other states can apply. These include UPTUEE, BCECE-Bihar, Pet-Madhya Pradesh, Delhi-CEE, WBJEE for Bengal, CEET-Haryana, CET-Punjab, Pet-Rajasthan etc. are prominent. Notifications for all these entrance exams are issued between January to March and the entrance test takes place in April-May.

Other Engineering Entrance Exams

There are also some prestigious engineering colleges in the country, who have Deemed University status and who are autonomous. The Birla Institute of Technology (BITS) -Pilani, Birla Institute of Technology-Ranchi, Manipal Institute of Technology-Manipal, Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology-Gandhinagar, Veer Mata Jijabai Technology Institute (VJTI) ) -Mumbai etc.

Online examination is conducted by the Institute for admission in BITS, Pilani, which is known as BITS Admission Test. Access to Dhirubhai Ambani Institute and BITS, Ranchi on the basis of JEE. VJTI is given admission on the basis of marks obtained in XII. MIT Manipal conducts an independent examination for admission in the field. Although some seats here are also reserved for students who are ranked well in JEE. Vellore Institute of Technology conducts VITEEE. SRM University Chennai conducts SRMEEE etc.

If your JEE (Main) Rank is not Satisfactory

Students who get low scores in JEE can also get admission in major engineering colleges and universities. There are several well-known private colleges and universities recognized by the government in different states of the country, where students can get admission easily by joining the counselling process organized by the state government. Also, they can get seats in many big private universities by joining the university-level counselling process.

It is natural for the parents and the students (who are trying to get admission for the first time) that they do not have adequate and comparative information regarding the level of colleges and universities across the country. Many times in relation to counselling process also they have lack of information.
