B.Tech CSE: What is it About?

 

B.Tech CSE
is a comprehensive course in computer applications and system. It deals with designing and developing computer software and hardware processes. Through this course, the students will be able to understand, learn and use different programming languages, digital and analog electronics, networking and telecommunications etc. With the use and importance of the computer and computer applications increasing day-by-day, it is safe to say that seeking a career in this field is profitable. The course delivery methods include lectures, lab work, industrial training, assignments, workshops etc. During this course, students are also encouraged to take up a research project. In the final assessment, the students are graded on Theory paper, Term work (assignments), Lab work and Research Project.

How is B.Tech. CSE different from BCA?

 

BCA
is a course dedicated completely to computer application; the software involved; its design, programming, operational function, management etc. B.Tech CSE
is an engineering course which is based in various engineering disciplines such as computer engineering, mechanical engineering, communications, electronic, Software engineering etc. along with the knowledge of computer systems.

Eligibility

 

The minimum eligibility for this course requires, passing the higher secondary school certificate (10+2)examination with science subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory courses. In addition, they must also have one Subject out of Chemistry. Minimum percentage of marks in class 12/ higher secondary Examination is generally from 45% to 50%. Since most institutions have an Entrance Exam, the students who have appeared in Higher Secondary Examination and are awaiting results can apply too.

Admission Process

 

Admission to the program is strictly through entrance exam and personal interview. Hence, if the candidate is eligible, students can follow the process given below.

EntranceTest
