B.Tech. stands for Bachelor of Technology. It is an undergraduate level programme that is pursued by science stream students after the completion of Class 12 Science. The four year programme is offered by engineering colleges across India including top colleges such as IITs and NITs. Many technology schools also use the term B.E or Bachelor of Engineering for the professional engineering undergraduate programmes. However, as far as India is concerned, only the nomenclature of the programme is different while the syllabus and teaching pedagogy is the same for both the programmes.

Students who have taken PCM group or the Physics Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects are preferred for the programme.
There is also a lateral entry scheme to B.Tech programme that is offered to students holding a diploma in engineering domains. Students who have joined diploma programmes after Class 10 or Class 12 in technical trades can enrolled direct in 2nd year
