  • In terms of Job opportunities in the market, students having either a B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) or B. Tech (Bachelor of Technology) Degrees have equal opportunities and have equally good scope. It is in no way going to be a hindrance to good career growth.
  • The only differentiating factor is the college, placements in the college, faculty, collaboration with industries and the stream which is going to make the difference in the initial stages of one’s career. Once a student with either B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) or B. Tech (Bachelor of Technology) Degrees join an organisation, his/her growth is solely dependent on one’s performance in the company that he/she works.
