B.Tech. Computer Science is an engineering undergraduate course in computer sciences. Students who have passed their 10+2 examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are eligible to pursue this course.
It is a 4 year long course divided into 8 semesters, 2 semesters each year. The admission process for this course is through entrance exams like JEE, CUSATCAT, TANCET, SET etc. The average tuition fee for this course is around 80,000 INR to 1.2 Lakh INR per semester.
A B.Tech. graduate in Computer Science can work in profiles such as Software Engineer, Testing Engineer, System Analyst and Technical Support Engineer. After passing out successfully, an individual can earn an average package of 2 Lakh INR to 4.5 Lakh INR.
Some of the major recruiters for B.Tech. Computer Science are software giants like Infosys, TCS and Accenture etc.
The minimum duration to finish the course is 4 years and maximum is 6-8 years. B.Tech. Computer Science is also available in distance learning mode and duration to complete the course from distance learning remains 4 years minimum to 8 years maximum.
This course is a defined platform to learn basics and advanced programming about computers. It also opens ways to learn various computer languages like Java, Linux etc. Studying this course will enable you to become a well established programmer.
B.tech. Computer Science gives you a vast knowledge about calculus, algorithms, computer architecture, database learning etc. A person who has an interest in grasping computer technology from grass root to zenith can opt for this course.
Although there are many Colleges which offer Engineering in Computer Science, as the scope and application of the course has increased tremendously in past years. But there are certain top colleges which show high placement record and provide with a best-in-campus facilities.
Govt. Funded Institutions
Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal
Vellore institute of Technology, Vellore
Institute of Technology, NIRMA University
Bharti Vidyapeeth, Pune
Thapar University, Patiala
The range of colleges/universities in choice often varies within Govt. funded and Private institutions. The top ranks are generally held by some of the IIT and a few Private institutes.
The course is also available in distance learning mode, where student doesn’t require going to college regularly and can still pursue the course. This option is common with people doing part-time jobs or housewives etc.
Universities offering B.tech. Computer Science in distance learning mode are:
The average fee of Govt. funded institutions varies from around 30,000 INR to 80,000 INR, whereas in the case of Private institutions it varies from around 80,000 INR to 1.5 Lakh INR.
Any individual who has cleared his 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) from a recognized board or institution like CBSE or state board or NIOS is eligible to opt for the course.
Getting into course is generally through an entrance exam which is conducted either by a recognized board like CBSE or State level exams which are conducted by State sponsored universities.
There are various entrance exams in India to get into this course. Some of these entrance tests are held at national level and include a tough competition like JEE exam for IIT’s and NIT’s.
JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is conducted in the month of April with the guidelines of MHRD for admission to government aided engineering colleges. It is divided into two stages
Around 13 Lakh students appear for this exam on a single day, conducted by one of the IIT’s. It is required to get into prestigious engineering colleges of India like NIT’s, IIT’s etc . For shortlisting of final candidates, a weightage of 40% is also accorded to marks scored in 10+2 level examination.
There are various other universities which conduct their separate examination for entry into Engineering courses for Computer Science, like Manipal Institute of Technology and Vellore Institute of Technology.
Certain other universities rely upon State Level Entrance Test conducted by state boards for entry into engineering courses like computer sciences. These entrances and universities vary state wise across India.
