This does not mean that integrated courses don’t delve deep into the subject matter of things. An integrated course, in fact, is a unique way in which a student, through extreme focus and hard work can reach targets that others going the traditional way, will take longer to achieve.   

BTech is a highly technical programme that skills a student in specialized sectors like Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Electronics and Communication etc.

Along with such technical specialization, an integrated course allows the student to either learn administrative and business skills or reach deeper into the various facets of engineering.

Pursuing an integrated BTech plus MBA course has the following advantages –

∙ You will be considered as a professional with both managerial and technical skills. This will set you apart from your peers.

This will not only make you get jobs easily, but you will also be promoted faster! You can bag easily bag top managerial positions in technology-based industries which are thriving in the current times.

∙ Having both ‘BTech’ and ‘MBA’ written against your name will fetch you jobs from international brands. Companies that have an international or global presence are always on the lookout for candidates who are not just ordinary graduates or engineers.

They look for candidates who have opted for professional or vocational courses – the more the better. This goes especially for those global companies that operate in the IT, Finance and Banking Sectors.

∙ If you hold both BTech and MBA degrees you are instantly eligible for a higher salary.

∙ Takes less time than BTech and MBA pursued separately.

Advantages of pursuing an integrated BTech plus MTech course–

∙ If you are keen on doing a PhD in Engineering, you can save up on time by pursuing an integrated BTech plus MTech course.

Many universities prefer research fellows who have both degrees from an integrated course as it shows that the candidate was interested in research from the very beginning. Research fellows also get good remunerations every month.

∙ An integrated BTech-MTech course brightens your chances of having a career in teaching with an engineering college. You also need to qualify in the National Eligibility Test (NET) for this. You can complete your education till MTech easily through an integrated programme and then prepare for NET.

∙ If you want to pursue a PhD abroad, an integrated course can put you at an advantage of getting selected by a foreign university.

∙ Candidates with both BTech and MTech also have high chances of bagging good jobs.

∙ Takes less time than BTech and MTech pursued separately.

Not many colleges and universities in India offer integrated BTech programmes. Thus, the demand for government colleges like IITs is always high.
