A Bachelor of Engineering is an undergraduate academic degree of 4-year duration. You can do it after studying Science with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics in your senior of higher secondary school. There are several disciplines in which you can obtain a Bachelor of Engineering degree.

In this post, we will talk about every possible degree in engineering; various engineering entrance examinations in India; and about future opportunities after a Bachelor of Engineering degree.

Engineering still stands to be one of the most sought after career choices in India. Even today, with industry prospects being bleak, programs offering a degree in engineering or technology like Bachelor of Engineering (BE) or a Bachelor of Technology (B Tech) witness the second-highest number (19%) of student enrollments at the undergraduate level.

What is a Bachelor of Engineering Program?

A Bachelor of Engineering is an undergraduate academic degree that is awarded to you after typically a period of 4 years, in any one of the many engineering disciplines as described in this detailed post.

There are 4career pathways after your graduation with a Bachelor of Engineering:

  • You can take up a job opportunity in various fields depending upon your area of specialization; or
  • You can go for a higher study and enroll either to a Post Graduate Degree (2-year duration) or to an Integrated Ph.D. degree (5-year duration) in Engineering; or
  • Make a career switch and enroll in a Post Graduate degree program from a different field such as Management; or
  • Prepare for and get a job in a different field such as in the Indian Administrative Services.

How do you enroll into a Bachelor of Engineering Program?

There are 4 ways to enroll into a Bachelor of Engineering program:

The most common entry pathway for all Bachelor of Engineering programs is a pass in Class 12 with Physics,

1. Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects. For admission, you must qualify in an entrance examination like the JEE (Mains).

Qualifying in an entrance examination is a must unless you belong to the category of NRI (Non-Resident India) / PIO (Person of Indian Origin) / Foreigner. Some colleges have different quota for these categories or has a different entry scheme.

2. Do a Diploma in Engineering from a polytechnic in India after passing Class 10th with Science and Mathematics.

Diploma courses are of 3-year duration. After obtaining a Diploma, you can take a lateral entry into a Bachelor degree program in Engineering in the 2nd year.

So, here you are exempted from the 1st year courses in the program. But remember that, this option is offered by very few Engineering colleges in India.

3. You can do a 2-year ITI Certificate program in a technical subject after passing class 10th and enroll into the 2nd year of a 3-year Diploma in Engineering program. After completing your Diploma, you can take admission into the 2nd year of a 4-year Bachelor in Engineering program.

4. You canpass Class 12th in a technical vocational stream and then enroll into the 2nd year of a 3-year Diploma in Engineering program. After completing your Diploma, you can take admission into the 2nd year of a 4-year Bachelor in Engineering program.

Bachelor of Engineering Programs: The Various Undergraduate Academic Degrees

Here’s a list of 6 common Bachelor of Engineering degrees that you may commonly come across. In most countries, the duration of Bachelor of Engineering degrees is 4 years. However, in UK and a few European countries, there are options to do a 3-year B.Eng. or similar degree.

  1. BE degree / B.E. (Hons)
  2. B.Tech./ B.Tech. (Hons)
  3. B.Eng.
  4. B.S. or BSc Engineering/Technology: Bachelor of Science in Engineering or Technology
  5. B.E.Sc.: Bachelor of Engineering Science
  6. B.A.Sc.: Bachelor of Applied Science (popular overseas)

Bachelor of Engineering: Opportunities after graduation

Job or Study Further?

Working in the industry right after graduation (bachelor of engineering) is the most popular choice for most graduates. Campus placements are better as it is difficult to get a job after you are out of college. You can also work for some time after completing Bachelor’s and then start studying for your post-graduation. However, there are promising opportunities in both the public as well as private sectors. The following sections will give you an overall idea.

Bachelor of Engineering: How to Start Working After Graduation?

  1. Opt for a placement offer in the IT industry – opportunities varies from a role in Business Analytics and Data Science to Artificial Intelligence and plain old software programming. All the high end options go to IITs, NITs, BIT-Pilani, etc. – only the cream of the top. Software Programming roles are widely offered to all kinds of institutes.
  2. Opt for a placement offer in an engineering/manufacturing sector company – these are very few but are in core engineering disciplines. In this case, almost all start as a GET (Graduate Engineering Trainee)
  3. Opt for a placement offer as a management trainee in a public sector undertaking or private sector. The role is in Engineering/Manufacturing management after 2-years as MT (Management Trainee). Such as Coal India, Reliance. MT roles go to top end engineering colleges only.
  4. Opt for a placement offer with an engineering consulting organisation – in this case also as a GET. Only to top end engineering colleges.
  5. Opt for a KPO (technical) placement in a BPM company like WNS.KPO stands for Knowledge Process Outsourcing and BPM stands for Business Process Management companies.

Bachelor of Engineering: Want to Sit for Exams after Graduation?

Write GATE for admission to an M.Tech/M.E. program in India. GATE is also mandatory for most public sector jobs.

GATE: is an annual examination for admission to Masters level programs in most engineering institutes in India.

Write GRE and TOEFL/IELTS exams for MS/Ph.D. in US/Canada/elsewhere.

  • GRE is to be pursued if you wish to do Master’s from a foreign country. This is a requirement for many graduate schools with an English speaking environment.
  • IELTS/ TOEFL: Either of the two is a requirement for all non-native English speakers to prove their proficiency to use and understand Standard American/ British English at a college level.

Write CAT / XATetc. for MBA admission / GMAT for MBA abroad (even Indian schools like ISB and SP Jain accepts GMAT)

  • GMAT is the most popular screening test for admission to MBA, Master’s in Finance (or related courses) as well as select PhD programs globally.
  • CAT is the most popular screening test for admission to MBA programs pan India.
  • Start preparing for other exams like IAS/IES(Indian Engineering Services). Most do it along with a job.
