FAQs

  1. Can I pursue a postgraduate program abroad after studying BTech in Colleges of Chandigarh?

Yes, one can pursue a postgraduate program in any desired foreign university provided the scores match the eligibility criteria of the respective colleges or university.

  1. Which companies can be expected during campus placements?

Renowned multinational companies like Facebook, Morgan and Stanley, Google, L&T, TCS, and Infosys are expected in almost all colleges.

  1. What are the non-technical career prospects after BTech?

Any BTech graduate could pursue an MBA- Masters in Business Administration and pursue a career as an HR or Marketing chief. There are several certificate courses available all over the country as well. 

  1. Is JEE mandatory to pursue a Polytechnic diploma course?

No, JEE is not required for a Polytechnic diploma. A state-level exam is conducted which is mandatory for getting admission into a polytechnic diploma course.

  1. Do engineering colleges offer scholarships?

Yes, Chandigarh University offers scholarships up to 5 lakhs for meritorious students and students with challenging financial backgrounds. There are detailed procedures to apply for these scholarships.

  1. What is the difference between degree and diploma?

A degree is a 4-year program known as Bachelors of Technology. It offers more perspective and an in-depth understanding of the curriculum. A diploma is a 2-year course which can be joined directly after class 10. Any day a degree graduate is preferred over a diploma candidate. 

  1. Is it mandatory to pursue MTech or Postgraduate courses after BTech?

Nothing is mandatory. Mere BTech might end you up with a good job and a decent pay package. To achieve higher in life a more professional degree i.e. Post Graduation adds an edge to your chances of getting selected for higher paid and valued jobs. A postgraduate is any day preferred over a graduate for a given job filling. 

  1. Can a mechanical engineer apply for jobs in Computer sciences?

Yes, these days companies emphasize the knowledge and ability to streamline it according to the need of the project or the job over the monotonous education and scores. Your personality speaks volumes as to how susceptible you are to change and dynamics of the corporate world. If you have basic knowledge of the computer languages and software and are not rigid to learning then you have every chance to be selected into a job that is unrelated to mechanics and is solely based on computer sciences and information technology.

  1. Are IITians preferred to other University graduates for jobs and placements?

This is a myth. Yes, IITians are looked up to in Indian society because of the relentless hard work that got them into these prestigious institutes but when it comes to the corporate world only the knowledge and character of the candidate matters. They learn the same curriculum and subjects as any other student of engineering in the country. Nothing but the campus is different from IIT and University. It is the attitude that matters and makes a difference.

  1. Can engineers be absorbed into Defence services of India? 

Yes. A career in the Indian defence service is a lot more than just a matter of pride in owning the uniform, either army, air force or the navy. There is nothing that beats a career in the defence forces. The major part of a career in any defence forces includes critical responsibilities, service to the nation, respect from all sections of society and the pride of working for one’s motherland. Engineers can be absorbed into these defence forces in various ways.

  1. Ground-level officers

  2. Pilots

  3. Intelligence agencies

  4. Information and Communications

  5. Aeronautical designing and infrastructure

  6. Naval commanders

  7. Technical staff on a ship

  8. The technical team of the air force

  9. Radar and communication management

  10. Merchant Navy

Once you write the CDS or the NDA entrance examination there is a round of physical fitness testing, Aptitude test and Personal Interview. Candidates who get through all these levels can be appointed at a rank of lieutenant and commanders. Competent officers always have a chance of being promoted to senior positions over the years. 

Engineering is a very responsible and demanded sector of our country today. The technical and civil infrastructure of the Nation is built by the engineers. It plays a pivotal role in the economic growth of the country. More than 60% of the new jobs produced in the private sectors are being filled in by engineers from all over the nation. 

This is one of the most prestigious and esteemed courses that one can pursue. Engineers are the backbone of the country's development both in terms of the infrastructure and economy. The government is focusing on establishing more engineering colleges to encourage the youth into these fields. The country is proud of its engineers as these young candidates shoulder the responsibility of an entire nation.
