Engineering is an undergraduate/Postgraduate course that is pursued not only in India but all over the world. Here in this article, we will confine our study to India only. There are various government and non-government engineering institutes in India that provide engineering degree for professional use.
Engineering is the most common and most demanding course in this time of era. Almost half of the students decide to pursue career in engineering. This results in very tough competition among the students. The course has a very wide scope of learning professional skills.
Bachelor of Technology and Bachelor of engineering is a four year undergraduate degree.
This course is commenced in various national importance engineering institutes and other private institutes also.
There are various branches available under this course, a student can choose the specialization as per his/her need.
There are various entrance tests that are conducted throughout the country every year for admission in the engineering institutes.
The academic curriculum for the first year of all engineering institutes whether they are of national level or private and all the branches is the same. They all study same concepts in their first years.
The syllabus for second year onward changes as per the specialization of the student.
There are the following branches/specializations available in engineering. A student can choose any specialization as per his interest and the specializations in which he wants to develop his career. All branches have the same time period of the commencement of course. List of some common specialization is as follows

Top Engineering Institutes in India
When we talk about engineering as the undergraduate course, it is very important to decide which institute will provide the best knowledge and help the student to develop a better career in the field. There are numerous engineering institutions in India which provide Engineering degree, but each engineering institute does not have the same opportunities therefore a student must have knowledge about the best engineering institute for his career excellence.
University Grants Commission of India (UGC), All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and National Board of Accreditation (NBA) are the responsible authorities that provide the approval to any institution in India. The only approved engineering institutions can provide degrees to any student. The degree provided by these approved engineering institutions will be legal across the country for a job or any other purpose. These authorities are also responsible for laying down of syllabus and curriculum of course. They ensure the proper follow of this curriculum by every institution.
In India there are various national importance engineering institutes (IIT’s & NIT’s) running which provide engineering degrees but, these are not the only engineering institutes, there are various other engineering institutes that provide the same or much better opportunities to the students.
