For science students, engineering is one of the natural career choices. To become an engineer is an exciting proposition for any student. An engineer can design and commission hundreds of new projects during his career. The thrill of accomplishing such difficult tasks as making bridges or skyscrapers or work as a power plant is enough of a reward to get drawn to a career as an engineer.
So How Do You Start?
Well, if you want to become an engineer, you will have to start planning for it early. B Tech courses begin right after your plus-2 and in most cases you will have to qualify an entrance test to be able to secure your admission. So, you also need to prepare for your entrance test as you study through your 10th and 12th. Also, if becoming an engineer is on your mind, you will have to choose physics, chemistry, and maths for your 12th. This decision has to be taken when you are in 10th standard. Now, you can see why we say you should start planning for your B Tech early on.
Is the Entrance Test Necessary?
Most of the engineering colleges in India are run by the government and programs offered there are also subsidized by the government. This makes B Tech engineering courses affordable to ordinary students. However, because of low-cost of education, the number of admission seekers is extremely high and the admission to these colleges is granted through highly competitive admission tests. So, for admission to government engineering colleges including the most prestigious IITs and NITs is grated through an entrance test. The test is also required to assess individual candidate’s aptitude for studying engineering.
Over the years, it was noticed that the graduates from government engineering colleges did not possess skills and knowledge that can find them immediate employment. The skills that they learnt were not enough for the industry. This led to a huge number of unemployed engineering, brining a bad name to the profession.
Many of these engineers got employment with different government organizations which were already mired in corruption. So, over the years government engineers were often blamed for poor quality of roads, bridges, and embankments made in the country.
Private Engineering Colleges
In the backdrop of failing quality and drooping morale in the engineering profession, private engineering colleges came on the scene. They promised to maintain the academic standards and meet the expectations of the industry. Over the past few decades, the number of private engineering has grown steadily. Now, students who are concerned about the quality of education often prefer a private college. However, the IITs which are autonomous institutions funded by the government are still the best engineering colleges in the country and enjoy a formidable reputation all over the world.
ITM Engineering Colleges
As a leading education company ITM Group of Institutions has grown phenomenally from its modest inception in 1993. In the last 3 decades, the group has expanded to new locations with an ever-growing bouquet of courses and campuses. Currently, it has more than10000 students studying at its 15 ultra-modern campuses across the country. Its flagship ITM Kharghar is a leading management college located in Navi Mumbai. ITM Group also has two different universities under its belt: ITM University Raipur and ITM Vocational University Vadodara.
ITM Group of Institutions is a dynamic organization which responds promptly to opportunities and challenges that emerge on the education scene. As a result, it keeps planning and launching new courses as well as tries to cover new geographies. For example, responding to the needs and challenges that the country faced due to poor quality of engineering education, it launched its own engineering colleges with state-of-art labs and workshops at quite a few important locations.
Here is a list of ITM Group’s engineering colleges offering B Tech Engineering Courses:
- Diploma in Engineering, 3 Years, Full-Time
- Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), 4 Years, Full-Time
- B Tech Integrated (3years Diploma plus 3years Degree), 6 Years, Full-Time
- Bachelor of Technology, 4 Years, Full-Time
- B Sc in Industrial Chemistry, 3 Years, Full-Time
- Bachelor of Architecture, 4 Years, Full-Time
- Bachelor of Technology, 4 Years, Full-Time
If you are already in 12th or you have passed your 12th with science and mathematics and want to join a B Tech program, you should visit the ITM website and apply for BTech in engineering. There are quite a few B Tech Engineering Courses available at ITM’s Raipur and Vadodara campuses. For more information on B Tech courses or B Tech in Engineering, you should contact ITM Group’s admission counselor.
