B.Tech in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (B.Tech EEE) is an undergraduate course in electrical engineering with a background in electronics. The minimum eligibility for this course requires passing class 12th/ Higher Secondary Examination in Physics and Maths.
B. Tech EEE is a four year program. The mode of admission is mostly through an Engineering Entrance Examinations including the different examinations conducted by University/ State or National Joint Entrance Exams.
The average tuition fee for this course ranges between 1.5 Lakh INR to 2.5 Lakhs INR.
B. Tech EEE graduates can choose from jobs in the ITSectors, Electronics Industry, Federal or State government forces, Consulting firms, etc, as Electrical Engineer, Software Engineer, IT Consultant, Software Developer etc. A fresh graduate of this course can expect an annualsalary in the range of 1 Lakh INR – 3 Lakh INR which would only increase with experience in the field.
Since B.Tech course in Electrical and Electronics is an engineering course, the duration of the course is fouryears which are divided over eight semesters.
This field of Engineering indulges in the study and application of electricity and electronics. In a world that practically lives on electricity, electrical appliances and computer software, this branch of engineering has a bright future.
There are over 3000 Colleges which offer a Bachelor of Technology program in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Few of the top colleges for B.Tech in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are as follows:-
Interested candidates can also further continue to research through a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from universities like Jamia Millia Islamia University.
The minimum eligibility for this requires, passing the higher secondary school certificate (10+2) examination with science subject such as Physics and maths as compulsory subjects along with other subjects like Chemistry, Computer Science, Biotechnology and Biology.
Minimum percentage of marks in class 12/ higher secondary Examination is generally from 50% to 55%.
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 Bharti Vidyapeeth University also offer Direct Entry for this course along with an Entrance Exam. The eligibility for this requires the student to have Diploma in Engineering by an institution recognised by All India Council for Technical Education.
If the candidate is eligible, they can apply for the course either through Direct Entry (as mentioned in Eligibility) or through Entrance Examination.
Since the Joint Entrance Examinations for Engineering are conducted at University/ State/ National level, it is important to keep a check on the Entrance Exams for Engineering.
The admission process is briefly described in the following diagram.
Top entrance examinations for B.Tech EEE is as follows:
JEE Main: The Joint Entrance Exam applications are available online in the months of December and January. Candidates can opt for either pen-paper based exam or computer based exam for Paper 1. This paper is for students applying for B.Tech EEE.
BITSAT: Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission test or BITSAT application form are available from the month of January. This exam is an Online based one.
JEE Advanced: JEE Advanced examination is taken by JEE Main selected candidates to take admission in IIT. The application forms are available online in the months of April- May.
The entrance examinations have negative marking of either 1/4th of the marks allotted to the question or 1 marks. .
The number of questions ranges from 90 to 150. The time allotted for the exam is 3 hours.
