While pursuing your B.Tech degree with us, a student selects a branch of engineering. This is called your major area of specialization. In addition to your major area of study, a student can also elect as a choice to pursue a minor area of specialization or branch which is different from your major area of study. Example – A student is pursuing his Electrical Engineering B.Tech as his major, in addition to this major area, the student can opt to pursue a minor in Computer Science Engineering. He/she will be allowed to take courses in computer science engineering during his course of study with us. This minor field of study is not just limited to computer science engineering, but is open to all branches of engineering offered at PES University. This is highly beneficial to the student in the following areas:
In securing admission to the Masters program abroad in the field of their minor. In our example the EEE student could pursue a Masters degree in computer science engineering with less or no requirements of pre-requisites
Help in placements in companies in both the major and minor fields. In our example the EEE student could be looked by IT sector for opportunity as well as the electrical core sector companies
Help them better prepare for a cross functional diverse world of the future
B.Tech – M.Tech Integrated Program
Students can opt for the B.Tech–M.Tech integrated program which gives them an M.Tech degree directly. The duration of this program is 5 years. The salient feature of this program is that a student has a choice to select this B.Tech-M.Tech integrated program during their 3rd year of study with us. This is a great opportunity for students who could get the B.Tech-M.Tech Degree directly in a short period of 5 years.
B.Tech – M.Tech Switch Program
Students can opt for a B.Tech+M.Tech degree switch program in their 3rd year of study while pursuing their B.Tech degree. This program helps students to pursue their M.Tech degree in a branch or specialization which is different from their B.Tech degree, provided the student has done minors in the desired branch or specialisation during their B.Tech program (Ex. A student who has studied B.Tech in Electronics & Communication and who has done his minors (please see the major/minor explanation in the previous section) in Computer Science, can complete M.Tech in computer science, specifically, the student does 4 years of Electronics & Communication with minors in Computer science + 1 year of M.Tech in Computer Science + 1 year of compulsory internship in Computer Science. This will give him/her a B.Tech Degree in Electronics & Communication and an M.Tech Degree in Computer Science).
