Which is better in polytechnic or btech?

Choosing a Diploma or Degree in Engineering is a personal choice. Polytechnic (polytechnic) courses started offering employment at the age of 18. Initially students who wanted to start earning early to support the family opted for these courses. But this trend has changed over the years. Most of the diploma pass outs nowadays opt for degree courses.

Polytechnic or B.Tech In today’s time the criteria for deciding diploma or degree have changed. I have found that to avoid competition at class 12th level, many students are studying in Polytechnic (Polytechnic).polytechnic) option. After doing diploma, you get admission in second year degree which is easy. polytechnic after your diploma B.Tech or BE can do. B.Tech in doing polytechnic There is a provision of lateral entry after that i.e. directly after the diploma. B.Tech You can get admission in the second year. Apart from this, the option of doing B.Sc is also open.

However if you are aiming for IIT, Diploma option does not help. You have to clear 12th and JEE Advanced. There is one more aspect which you should keep in mind. Diploma after 10th is not easy. Children are small. Especially if you are coming through local medium, you may find the first year a bit tough. By the second year, students gradually adjust.

However, diploma holders have an advantage when you go to a degree course. Because the subjects are the same, the scope only increases. So I have told you all the aspects that I knew. Now you decide.

It would be better if you start with Diploma and then do B.Tech. Suppose if you join BTech after +2 then you are going to study PCM again for one year. And these topics are of no use for technical jobs. If you join BTech after diploma, then you will study PCM in the first year of diploma course itself. In terms of fees, B.Tech after Diploma is cheaper than B.Tech after +2 because they have no fees for +1, +2 coaching and entrance exam coaching after +2.

For diploma you have to give an entrance which coaching fee is around 10000 and diploma fee depends on the specific institute (mine was 21000 for full diploma). and after diploma you have to give entrance exam for btech lateral entry(in 2nd year) and coaching fee for that is around 25-30k and then fees change with different institutes(mine is 1.5 lakhs for complete degree) So by all means it is better to do diploma after btech and then after btech +2.

I have worked in IT industry for 20+ years in top notch companies in India and abroad. I have done I.I.T.M. Studied Inter MPC + B.Tech (B.Tech) Mech + PG Diploma from Kerala. I Polytechnic (polytechnicComparing Different Aspects of ) + B.Tech (B.Tech) Lateral Vs Inter + B.Tech

Polytechnic (polytechnic) Advantages of the course:

  • Duration of the course: 3.5 years – Three and a half years. 3 years course study, divided into I – VI semesters + 6 months of compulsory industrial training in VII semester
  • Financial: Fees of Government Colleges Rs. 3800/- only per year. – As per Government Polytechnic College MasabTank 2018. The course is completed in Rs.11400/- which does not include books and other expenses. Private colleges charge Rs 25000 to 35000 per year. B.Tech I year fee deferred due to lateral entry and only 3 years fee was to be paid. So B.Tech completed with just Rs 3800 x 3 years + Rs 10,000 x 3 years = 41,400/-
  • Studying B.Tech after Diploma: Appear for TS ECET exam. {ECET – Engineering Common Entrance Test – Details in Wikipedia} is held every year in May. Only 26,873 appeared for this exam across all branches in Telangana in 2018. This number is around 10% of the number of students appearing for TS EAMCET after Intermediate. According to Wikipedia, in 2013 more than 3,96,000 appeared for TS EAMCET. The fair assessment for engineering stream will be 2 lakh plus.
  • Number of seats in second year B.Tech (B.Tech) Lateral Entry: 10% seats in government engineering colleges and 20% seats in private engineering colleges are available for ECET rankers. All reservation rules are applicable in ECET as well as EAMCET. So the competition is not as intense as in EAMCET.
  • Level of Subject Knowledge and Duration of Study of Engineering Subjects: Polytechnic + B.Tech (B.Tech) Lateral: In Polytechnic I Year – Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry other than Engineering Drawing, Computer Programming, etc. [एमपीसी],
  • From the second year onwards, they study core engineering subjects. So two years during Polytechnic and 3 years during B.Tech, they study the same subject at an intensive level/higher scope. So they study only one year MPC and next 5 years engineering subjects. Leading to superior quality of knowledge and competence. Assuming that the student works hard throughout the course. Whereas in Inter + B.Tech, Inter 2 years and BTech 1 year MPC studies and engineering subjects are studied for 3 years. B.Tech Final Year [जीआरई, टीओईएफएल, कैट, गेट, पीएसयू/प्राइवेट जॉब्स आदि] Considering the time taken in preparation for competitive exams plus project work etc., the time spent by B.Tech students in about 3-3.5 years is only . Chances are quite high that they have not absorbed all the nuances of engineering subjects to the expected level. Hence the lack of employability skills/knowledge. This is typical in the case of most engineering graduates.

Disadvantages of Polytechnics:

  • It has been observed that students from cities and towns look down on polytechnic courses and do not join it even after securing top ranks in polycet. So most of the joiners come from rural background. And they may lack English language skills/sophistication/urban manners/economically weak. All these lead to low self esteem/confidence in the students even though they are better prepared for employment than their peers studying in Intermediate.
  • Students become weak at the age of 15/16 once they join polytechnic course, they can lose focus on studies: being away from home due to lack of parental supervision, due to bad company of friends Bad habits like smoking, drinking alcohol etc. , these can lead to not passing the diploma or passing the ECET exam for further studies. It is applicable for Inter students and B.Tech 1st year students also. The only difference is the slightly better maturity level of students in the age group of 17/18 years in B.Tech I year.
  • Polytechnics spend 6 months in compulsory industrial training which is completed in September. After which the students are free for the next 6 months. In these 6 months they can continue working and gain experience + earn money or prepare for ECET exam in May. So as compared to their peers in Inter + B.Tech (B.Tech), polytechnics pass out from B.Tech (B.Tech) lateral after one year. But with valuable work experience of one year.
  • Intermediate with MPC is mandatory for appearing in entrance examinations of IITs/IIITs/NITs/BITS etc. Hence polytechnics cannot join these institutes. However 10% seats are reserved in the second year for lateral admission through ECET exam in OU/JNTU/KU etc. universities of the state.

Advantages of B.Tech (B-Tech)-

  • Technical Graduation (Diploma is not a graduate)
  • Engineer (Diploma is Junior Engineer)
  • best development in the future
  • always senior to diploma holder
  • Lots of opportunities out there (Graduate level jobs, become easy in private diploma level jobs too, GATE, IAS, ESE (IES), PSU)
  • salary better than diploma
  • Your minimum technical education qualification must be completed in a scientific or research program such as ISRO to be a scientific but holder of a diploma as a technical assistant
  • Help the government in your promotion. or both private
  • knowledge better than diploma
  • Less effort than diploma holder (administrative work will be more if you have done B.Tech but diploma machinery maintenance line checking or standing on machine)

The basic difference between B.Tech and Polytechnic engineering courses is that B.Tech is a degree course whereas Polytechnic is a diploma course in engineering. Any polytechnic after 10th (polytechnic) course or can be done after 12th.

But after 12th one cannot opt ​​for B.Tech from JK Lakshmipat University with only Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects. Duration of polytechnic course is minimum 3 years but you can take lateral entry in polytechnic if you have done ITI for which duration of course will be 2 years. Admission Polytechnic (polytechnic) are based on the entrance test which takes place in the month of May or June, in some states polytechnics also take direct admission in 3 years diploma course. The duration of the course for B.Tech is 4 years, but if a person has done a polytechnic course then lateral entry can be taken directly in the second year.

Admissions are based on JEE ranking and some other institutes and colleges conduct their own entrance exams. Polytechnic (Diploma Engineering) is probably done for those people who are not able to afford degree engineering and need to get job as soon as possible. Polytechnic (polytechnicThere is no entrance test for admission to B.Sc.), but an entrance test is mandatory for admission to degree engineering (B.Tech or BE).
