Gone are the days when Engineering and Medical were considered noble degrees and available only for a few. According to a survey, in 2019, 8,80,000 students took admission in engineering in the CSE branch alone. This gives us a hint that total engineering students would’ve been around 15,00,000 at least. Now with this much competition, it is very difficult for the students to land a good job. Moreover, most engineering colleges are not up to the mark to provide proper engineering education.
As a result, post-graduation is becoming highly popular these days. People complete their 4-year engineering course (BE/BTech) and go for a higher degree depending on their field of interest. It is seen that quite a lot of students consider management after engineering, in search of higher pay and managerial positions in the corporate world. On the contrary, many students also opt for M. Tech i.e. postgrad in engineering, which can be both, for research purposes or for corporate jobs involving a better understanding of specific engineering disciplines.
Although engineering alone is a professional degree and all the students who have done engineering are eligible to work in the industry without any further training or education whatsoever, yet a postgrad degree is definitely more beneficial than a grad degree. The main hindrance in an M. Tech/ME is time. B. Tech/BE alone takes 4 years, after those 2 years for M. Tech/ME, this takes away 6 valuable years, which is no problem for students pursuing research, but for those who study just to get a good job in the industry, 6 years can be a long studying time.
This problem of time is solved by something that we call an integrated degree, i.e. B. Tech+ M. Tech. As is evident by the name, this integrated degree is now offered at most of the prestigious institutes and is of 5-year duration. An integrated degree comes into play especially in the
companies that demand experience along with BTech. M. Tech degree holders usually do not require experience to get jobs. Thus, an integrated course is the best if you want to get a better job as soon as possible, the main plus point of this degree is not having to waste 6 years. Additionally, an integrated course has a lesser fee when compared to separately doing graduation and post-graduation.
One of the most important aspects of an integrated BTech + MTech course is selecting a good college. After all, a good college means better education and better knowledge. And a student with a proper understanding of his/her subjects is deemed to get a high-paying job.
There are many colleges in Delhi/NCR that offer a BTech and MTech integrated course. Noida Institute of Engineering and Technology, Greater Noida is one such institute. NIET is the only institute in Uttar Pradesh to be recognized by all the three government organizations i.e. –
NAAC ‘A’ (3.23 | A grade highest in Uttar Pradesh)
NBA for CSE, IT, ECE, ME, BT, BPharm, MBA & MCA
NIRF 2021 Rank Band Top 200 (171st position) in Engineering and 43rd Rank in Pharmacy
NIRF 2020 Rank Band 201-250: Engineering
In this course, students are groomed by giving a strong foundation in advanced studies in Computer Science and Engineering. Students are trained practically over various subjects throughout the 5 years, and with 6 months of intensive training, students get prepared for an R&D-oriented job in the industry or a doctorate degree, according to their choice.
NIET has many times been ranked the no. 1 private institute in NCR by the likes of The Times Group, Dataquest, etc. The institute is known for its record placements every year and all the professors, assistant professors, and placement cell are highly supportive and provide the best guidance.
Moreover, the institute is well equipped with modern labs, library, various labs in tie-ups with industry experts, an incubation center, and foreign language labs as well. Apart from these, the college campus is a well-laid space with lush green exteriors and has on-campus hostels for both boys and girls.
With its record placements and industry-level education, NIET is indeed one of the best colleges in Delhi/NCR for the BTech and MTech integrated course.
