Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering)




    4 YEARS


    Computer Science



B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (B.Tech CSE) is an undergraduate engineering course on practical and theoretical knowledge of computer hardware and software. The minimum eligibility for this course requires passing class 12th/ Higher Secondary Examinationin Physics, Mathematics and English with a minimum of 50% marks.

B.Tech CSEis a course completed over a span of four year just like any other engineering course. It is also often pitted againstBachelor of Computer Application (BCA). The mode of admission is through State/ National/ University Joint Entrance Examination.

The average tuition fee for this course ranges between 2Lakhs INR to 10 Lakhs INR.

B.Tech CSEgraduates can find employment in academic institutions, IT software companies, journalism, sales and marketing. The job profiles for graduates of this course can be lecturer, technical editor, content developer, Software engineer, software developer, programmer analyst, test engineer etc.

A fresh graduate of this course can expect an annual salary of between 1.5 Lakh INR – 3.5 Lakhs INR which would only increase with experience in the field.

What is B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering?

B.Tech CSE is a comprehensive course in computer applications and system. It deals withdesigning and developing computer software and hardware processes.

Since the use of computers has become a necessity in everyday life, it is hardly surprising that an engineering course in Computer science is extremely popular among students. With the use and importance of the computer and computer applications increasing day-by day it safe to say that seeking a career in this field is profitable.

How is B.Tech. CSE different from Bachelor of Computer Application?

BCA is a course dedicated completely to computer application; the software involved; its design, programming, operational function, management etc.

B.Tech CSEis an engineering course which is based in various engineering disciplines such as computer engineering, mechanical engineering, communications, electronic, Software engineering etc. along with the knowledge of computer systems.


Since B.Tech CSE is an engineering course, the duration of the course is four years. The course follows a semester system over annual mode and hence the course consists of eight semesters.

Where to study?

There are various B.Tech. Colleges in India which offer B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering. Few of top colleges for B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering are as follows:

Academic Options after B.Tech

After this undergraduate course, students can apply for M.Tech Computer Science and Engineering from colleges such as Amity School of Engineering and Technology, National Institute of Technologyetc.

After M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering, students can pursue a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from colleges such as Lovely Professional University, Graphic Era University, Dehradunetc.

Eligibility Of the Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering)

The minimum eligibility for this course requires, passing the higher secondary school certificate (10+2)examination with science subject such as, maths, physics, and English as compulsory courses. In addition they must also have one Subject out of Chemistry/ Biotechnology/ Computer Science.

Minimum percentage of marks in class 12/ higher secondary Examination is generally from45% to 50 %.

Since most institutions have an Entrance Exam, the students who have appeared in Higher Secondary Examination and are awaiting results can apply too.

Some colleges, like Amrita Vishwa Vidyapaeetham University, Coimbatore also accept a three year Diploma in Engineering with minimum 60% marks, awarded by any State Board of Technical Education as an optional factor for eligibility to the program.
