5 Ways to Become an Electrical Engineer

Engineering degree has a very special significance for the Indian student and getting admission in top engineering college in NCR is a dream come true for many. The most popular choice for students is to become an engineer or a doctor. In fact, the percentage of students preferring engineering over medical profession is more. The engineering courses in various streams are available in undergraduate and the post-graduate level. One has to complete the undergraduate level before attempting graduate level. The PG level follows.

They are two courses available in engineering at the undergraduate level

  1. Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) or Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech)
  2. Diploma in Engineering

The Diploma in engineering course is of 3-year duration and can be pursued soon after completing the 10th standard.

The B.E or B.Tech is of 4-year duration which is divided into 8 semesters. The admission to it is through entrance exam after 10+2 course.
