B Tech courses are one of the most sought after courses after completing 10+2. Over the years, the demand for engineering courses after the 12th has been on rising. Now, B Tech courses are job oriented but come at a cost. In the USA may cost as high as US$ 90,000 per annum; while in India, it may cost around Rs. 1.5 Lakhs, PA.
So, students must not get confused and fail to choose the right B.Tech specializations. In this article, I will share information to help you choose the right specializations. According to the latest trends, few B Tech courses have witnessed a good number of applications.
B. Tech Computer Science Engineering is one of India’s most popular courses attracting a massive number of applicants every year. It has a similar demand abroad too. Other courses like – Mining Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, Metallurgy, Textile Engineering, Cyber security and many others received a lesser number of applications.
Many B Tech courses offer equal scope like that of Computer Science Engineering but overlooked due to lack of guidance. So, my idea is to share certain tips to make the right choice that help you earn lucrative salaries in the future. Scroll down to know more on the topic at hand here.
