What is the difference Between B.E. and B.Tech?

difference_between_be_btech_engineering_degrees

Research has shown that engineering remains the most sought after under graduate course in India (this was published by the National Council of Advanced Economic Research). The many institutes that offer under-graduate courses offer either B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) or B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology). One of the most commonly asked question by engineering aspirants is the difference between the two degrees. Is it just a difference in the name/ nomenclature of the degrees or does the course curricula differ as well?

B.Tech course is somewhat more practically intensive than the BE course which is more theoretical.The difference (which is quite minor) between the two degrees can be understood from their names itself, Engineering Vs. Technology.

Engineering is a "science", dealing more with theoretical concepts & principles; technology deals more with the application of these theories for practical purposes. But, both B.E. & B.Tech courses offered by various engineering colleges/ institutes, have similar curriculum more or less. Both degrees are valued equally by prospective employers. What matters more is the reputation of the engineering college from where you obtain your B.E/ B.Tech degree.

Misconceptions

  • B.Tech is offered by government institutes and B.E. is offered by private institutes.

There is absolutely no truth in this. Institutes like Netaji Subash Institute of Technology, University of Mumbai (Department of Chemical Technology) which are government institutes offer a BE degree and there are many private institutes that offer a B.Tech degree as well.

  • No industrial training in BE or B.Tech

In both, BE and B.Tech, industrial training is compulsory after semester 6.

  • B.Tech or BE is valued more than the other

Your performance and to a lesser extent your college is what matters. Neither is preferred over the other.
