What is the BTech Electronics Engineering Syllabus?

BTech Electronics Engineering syllabus is designed in such a way that one would learn theoretical and practical knowledge of different fields that are covered in the study of mechanical engineering. The main BTech Mechanical Engineering subjects are  Strength of Materials, Materials Science, Thermodynamics, IC Engines, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Automobile Engineering etc. Apart from these, there are some tools that are taught to use for enhancing the skills of mechanical engineering.

In most of the engineering institutes, the first year of every branch has common subjects like  Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Communication Skills, Environmental Science,  Engineering mechanics, Basic Electrical Engineering, Engineering Graphics, etc. Second year onwards the specialization starts. Thus, the first year courses are similar for everyone.

Following is the basic course structure followed for BTech Mechanical Engineering curriculum.

Ques. Is NIT Puducherry for ECE better than IIITDM Kancheepuram for mechanical?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 25 Oct 21

Ans. Opt for IIITDM Kancheepuram for Mechanical rather than ECE at NIT Puducherry. Here are some reasons as to why I feel so. Faculty: The faculty members at IIITDM Kancheepuram are highly experienced, some of them even have PhDs from the top IITs. At NIT Puducherry the faculty are not that experienced and are also few in number. Infrastructure: IIITDM Kancheepuram’s campus is excellent and appropriate for an educational institution. NIT Puducherry is still functioning from the temporary campus due to construction on the main site. Placements: NIT Puducherry is only known for its placement opportunities provided to its IT students. The rest of the department receives average placement offers. But IIITDM Kancheepuram provides great placements and maintains that record every year. Categories Mechanical Engineering at IIITDM Kancheepuram ECE at NIT Puducherry Course Fee 5.25 lakh 5.49 lakh Placement Percentage 75% 65% Highest CTC 10 LPA 15 LPA Average CTC 7 LPA 4 LPA Recruiting Companies Saint Gobain, L&T, Adobe, Zentrum Labs, etc. Emphasis, Capgemini, L&T, Mu Sigma, etc. Therefore, IIITDM Kancheepuram will be a better choice as here you can excel in your studies, get clear concepts about every topic. You will also receive industry-oriented and research-oriented teachings.Read more

Ques. Can I get Electronics Communication Branch with a general rank 1861 in MMMUT Admission Test If not then which Branch?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 16 Oct 21

Ans. I have a few friends from MMMUT. According to them, in this situation, the chances of getting a seat are very unlikely. Computer science and electronics communication branches are the most preferred ones. Since you are from the general category the chances are low but you should attend the counseling sessions to check in which branch you can get admission. In the third to the fourth round of counseling, you can get branches like Chemical Engineering. Read more

Ques. Which is better for a B.Sc Allahabad University or ECC?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 08 Oct 21

Ans. Both Allahabad University and ECC are very good institutes and choosing one among these two can be a very difficult decision. If you are planning to pursue B.Sc, then there are some points which you should consider before choosing a college. ECC is an autonomous institute and the academic environment and course curriculum in B.Sc (Maths) are much better than Allahabad University.  AU has a lot of politics involved among the students throughout the year and this creates a lot of disturbance in the academic atmosphere.  If you are interested in studying in the Biology field, then choosing Allahabad University will be a better option. You will enjoy a lot of advantages including access to modern laboratories and central library, interaction with research students, and many other things.  If you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Maths), then choosing ECC will be the right option and if you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Biology), then choosing Allahabad University will be the right option. Read more
