There’s more to B.Tech than IITs

by Team FUCCHA

These B.Tech institutions can help you take a great leap forward!

 

Pursuing education from one of the top universities has long been the logical route to rewarding job opportunities; however, recent studies of global universities suggest that a top college isn’t the be all and end all. There are many other great institutions which may not be ranked on top but have the resources to deliver the best education.

 

When it is about pursuing engineering, the first institution that crosses our minds is Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). And it is quite obvious, as IITs are among the top institutions in the country, but this doesn’t mean that there aren’t any other good colleges in the country. The future of engineering lies in integrating innovation into the existing curriculum.

 

In this article, we will discuss about the leading names in the field of engineering education, beyond the IITs. These institutions aim at all-round development of the students through a well-balanced curriculum, with emphasis on new technology and innovations.

 

Let’s have a look at these institutions that can help you take a great leap forward: -
