As we all know, software engineering is a course related to data science that keeps us updated about the recent technologies contributing to the economy. The journey to start your software engineering career is to appear for the JEE entrance exam and get selected in top IIT institutions or other engineering colleges. As this is a common field, getting admission has been difficult nowadays because knowledge about recent technologies will also be seen during interviews. Your passion for this field will be reflected by your eagerness to learn new facts.
Therefore, many students apply for various additional courses to make their profile different from others during interviews. Before discussing multiple techniques available, let us discuss various techniques in software engineering which many people adopt to do after their HSC completion.
There are four types of degrees that can kickstart a student’s software engineering journey-Bachelors, Master’s, Diploma, and Doctorate. Mainly students prefer to opt for master level and diploma courses due to the lack of colleges for Bachelor’s degrees. Now let’s discuss the eligibility rules to opt for these types of degrees.
|Bachelors||Pass 12th with physics, maths, and chemistry60% in 12th stdJEE Main and MH-CET scores are acceptable.|
|Diploma||10th pass in some institutions and 12th pass in other institutions.Appear for state level exams|
|Masters||60% in B.Tech examsGATE scores and Personal Interviews|
|Doctorate||60% in B.TECH or M.TECHAdmissions done through- CSIR ,UGC NET,ICAR,ICMR|
Bachelor’s degree – B.Tech in Software Engineering.
Diploma – Diploma In Computer Programming and Software Engineering, Diploma In Software Engineering, Diploma in Advanced Software Development Methodologies, etc.
Masters- M.Tech in Software Engineering, M.E in Software Engineering, M.Sc in Software Systems
