That’s good for you have completed your 12th successfully. The 12th class stage in our education system is really a critical one as at this very stage after completing the 12th you will be choosing your stream for further studies. The stream you choose after your 12th decides your future career path in advance and the picture becomes clearer for you to know the career prospects for your proposed career path.

You have not mentioned your 12th stream in the above query but still, it can be assumed as it must be the PCM as you want to opt for B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) after your 12th. It seems you have already decided to go for the Engineering field and I would say there are huge job opportunities and the best career prospects for the Engineering Career Path.

Why Confused? Take The Engineering Branch Selector Test

The Engineering and Technology is really a good career stream. Everyone who completes the 12th will be struck by the question – which engineering branch should be opted for? I would suggest you not to worry much taking the branch of engineering as you have at your disposal the Engineering Branch Selector Test, the scientifically designed psychometric career test. This test would help you choose the best-suited engineering branch based on your orientation and aptitude.

You can obviously do the B.Tech. provided you have completed your 12th with the PCB (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) Group of Subjects. For the admission, there is a general procedure and it may vary college to college or university to university.


General Procedure For The Admission In B.Tech

  • Entrance Exam: Universities and the colleges conduct Entrance Examination to admit the students for the B.Tech. academic course. There are so many entrances and their pattern differs from one entrance to another. The Entrances have been conducted to select the right candidates assessing their knowledge and aptitude.
  • Criteria regarding score in 12th: There may be a condition regarding score in your 12th to be eligible for appearing for the entrance exam. The qualifying score in 12th may range from the 45% to the 60% or even more according to the concerned college/university. There will be relaxation in the score for the students under category and PWD.
  • Personal Interview (PI) and the Group Discussion (GD): The candidates will be shortlisted on the basis of their score in the entrance Some colleges offer the course wholly based on the score in the entrance but some may conduct Personal Interview and the Group Discussion round to prepare the final list of the students to be admitted for the B.Tech.


Various Entrance Examinations:

  • JEE Main and Advanced for the NITs (National Institutes of Technology) and IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) Admissions respectively.
  • BITSAT for the BITS Pilani Institution, MOE
  • VITEEE for the VIT University
  • MHT CET for the colleges in Maharashtra state
  • SRMJEEE for the SRM University
  • MU-OET for the Manipal University, etc.

These above are some of the entrances, conducted for the admission in B.Tech. There are

Top Engineering Colleges

  1. IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) – Bombay, Madras, Delhi, Kharagpur, etc.
  2. NITs (National Institute of Technology)
  3. BITS Pilani
  4. VIT University, Vellore, Tamil Nadu
  5. SRM University, Chennai
  6. Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal, Karnataka
  7. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Institute of Technology, Surat
  8. College of Engineering, Pune
  9. Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad, Allahabad

Career Prospects for the Engineering Students

Owing to the development in the field of technology we need more and more engineers as the need of hours. We see the increase in arriving of MNCs (Multinational Companies) in India and even we see the growth in the Indian companies. It shows that there are vast job opportunities in the technical field ranging from services to the manufacturing. IT (Information Technology) field is experiencing revolutionary changes and the growth offering equally huge opportunities for the computer geeks. The other sectors like Automobile, Construction, Telecommunication, etc. are growing on the equal footage as like IT. This makes sure of a good number of job opportunities for the Engineering students.


The Cautious Note

In India we see, these days, there are a number of unemployable engineers who couldn’t find the appropriate jobs. Such situation arise because either the engineering candidates don’t make it up to the standard required for the field as an employability factor or they are unable to find themselves get selected due to the dearth of knowledge about the field. Here, selecting the right branch is the most critical factor above all as if you are unable to choose the right and best suitable branch for you then you may end up having low employability or the disinterest in the learning in a long run in your chosen career field. That’s why I again suggest you take Engineering Branch Selector Test to choose your best-suited engineering branch.

I advise you too for your bright future that you go for the Psychometric Career Tests by CareerGuide. For further queries and related information, you can approach the Professional Experts at CareerGuide. Hope this will help you!
