    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hi
    B.Tech degree is done after class XII .It is done after giving entrance exams like AIEEE,WBJEE,etc.,and there after you have to study for 4 years B.Tech degree.
    B.Tech in Lateral Entry is taking admission in B.Tech 2 nd year after doing Diploma after class X for three Years.

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hi
    b.tech degree is the degree which is offered to you if you are a 4 year regular student of the college and must have given 8 semesters that are present in the curriculum.
    But as far as the lateral B.Tech is concerned. It is the degree which is provided to the people who join the engineering course in the second year directly. The people who join the degree in the second year are the people having the diploma with them. The lateral entry is the term which is used for their admission process and only the diploma holders are allowed to take part in the lateral entry scheme

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hi dear,
    There is a major difference between the two.
    You receive B.Tech degree in either case.
    After you pass 12th and appear for entrance exam you join B.Tech from 1st year(1st semester).

    But after 10th if you pursue diploma(3 years) then you can get into B.Tech through Lateral Entry in 2nd Year that is from 3rd semester.

    Normally it is better to do 12th rather than doing diploma.
    Even opportunities are better for a 12th pass student rather than a diploma passed student.

    So accordingly plan your career out.

    All the best

    hi,
    there is no difference in the certificate or course between Btech and latrel BTech,means both are Btech,but entry or selection for B tech qualification is plus two or higher secondary and the course will be for 4 years. For diploma students (three year Diploma) after passing their exam they can attend latral entry entrence examination for Btech and if they are selected they will get direct addmision to the second year Btech(3rd sem)

    Dear sir,
    There is basically no difference in the importance of degree of both courses but as asked by you, simple B. tech is done exactly after completing 12 from science stream and B. tech lateral is the name given to the course which is done after doing diploma of 3 years after 10th, in the later case you are directly admitted to 2nd year B. tech course and is merged with those 2nd year candidates who have opted normal B.tech.

    Dear Guest,

    Both shall get you the same degree, i.e. B.Tech. The difference is that for regular B.Tech you have to give an entrance exam, but for lateral entry you must have completed a diploma in the subject that you want to do B.Tech in, then you must take a lateral entry exam of the university, then you are given admission into the second year of the course.

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hello friend,

    As you asked the difference between the lateral B.tech and B.tech

    here is the details regarding the both.

    Lateral B.tech :

    Now a days Students are i a hurry to earn money and hence the reason they are opting Diploma after schooling and getting job experience

    and joining the jobs or else joining the B.Tech later . this kind of course is known to be lateral B.tech..

    B.Tech :


    This is A course to be joined after 12th standard and you need to get experience for 4 years .

    Whereas diploma students wil join you in 2nd year only as they studied diploma for 3 years..



    This is the difference between the Lateral B.tech and B.tech .


    Hope this information is useful to you

    ALL THE BEST

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hello friend...

    normally 3 YEARS diploma (polytechnic students ) are eligible to do B.TECH through latral entry scheme.they can join direct secound year in B.TECH.
    there is no further difference between B.TECH and latral B.TECH.

    10+2+4=ENGINEERING DEGREE FOR INTERMEDIATE (PUC) STUDENTS.
    10+3+3=ENGINEERING DEGREE FOR DIPLOMA POLYTECHNIC STUDENTS.

    ALL THE BEST...


    THANK YOU....

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Dear aspirant difference between b.tech and lateral b.tech means candidates who have taken b.tech degree directly from the 1st year (1st semester) doing 12th standard from the recognized board with PCM subjects
    also appearing joint entrance exam.either state level or through AIEEE JEE at all India level.

    Lateral b.tech means those who have taken b.tech degree, after the completion of 10th standard they have done
    Diploma cource (three years)after getting Diploma degree they can appear lateral entry entrance examination
    for b.tech and if they are selected they will get direct admission to the 2nd year b.tech eg they start their career
    from 3rd semester.
    Normally students prefer to do b.tech after the completion of their 12th exam.rather than doing Diploma.
    And scopes are better for 12th standard students rather than a Diploma pass student.

    Thank You,

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Hello Friend

    In my point of you

    Regular diploma or B.E or B.tech is certainly better approach.

    Yes, if a candidate has already completed Diploma and now he is doing job, then he decided to pursue BE or B.Tech.

    First of all gain some basic level of technical education like Diploma in Engineering thru regular mode.

    Thereafter job B.E. or only B.E Regular or part time or Distance mode is ok.

    There is Big difference in attitude of persons having Regular B.Tech and lateral B.Tech.

    It generally seams that student unable to take admission in B.Tech.

    if they are not able in same then they opt the job on Diploma basis.

    Re: what is the difference between btech and lateral btech

    Dear Aspirant ,

    Difference between B.Tech after 12th and B.Tech after Diploma.


    Both courses is same but the entrance examination for both courses is different. B.Tech is the most growing field in the science and technology. I give you the details information about your question.

    B.Tech after 12th means :- After completing 12th the B.Tech course is duration of 4 years and you need to appear in the entrance examination for the admission in the B.Tech course. You can also apply for the engineering entrance examination in the appearing of 12th examination.

    B.Tech after Diploma :- After completing diploma course you can take admission in the direct 2nd year of B.Tech course through the lateral entry examination. You can apply for the lateral entry examination in the final year of diploma.

    This is the main difference between the B.Tech after 12th and B.tech after diploma. For the diploma holder candidates many private and government college conducts the lateral entry examination for the admission in the direct 2nd year of B.tech course.
