Career Choice with VITEEE

Career choice with VITEEE:

             Vellore Institute of Technology is one of the top most Universities of India. This University conducts Vellore Institute of Technology Engineering Entrance Examination (VITEEE) every year to select the best candidates for the admission to the Vellore Institute of Technology. The level of difficulty is moderate when compared to the other competitive exams like IIT JEE, JEE Main etc., There is no negative marking scheme in VITEEE exam. Thus, the students can attend every possible question without missing anyone. Candidates who are preparing for IIT JEE can also apply for this exam since most of the syllabus for VITEEE is covered from IIT JEE.

 

After VITEEE?

               What after VITEEE? Students those who are preparing for the VITEEE must have questioned themselves “What after VITEEE?”

However, after scoring well in VITEEE exam, you can get desired seats either in VIT Vellore or VIT Chennai campus according to your ranks. Any course in VIT adds more importance to your life and career since it is one of the Top ten Colleges of India.

 

Brief information about VIT Education:

       VIT is a unique University which offers courses through different schools of VIT. They are:

  • SENSE (School of Electronics Engineering)
  • SAS (School of Advanced Sciences)
  • SSL (School of Social science and Languages)
  • SCSE (School of Computing Science and Engineering)

 

Now, lets see few important courses in VIT after VITEEE:

  • Bachelor of Technology in Biotechnology:

                   Biotechnology is an area which uses living organisms for manufacturing chemical products, medicines, day to day life products to qualify the human life. In this engineering course, you will learn how to make use of the living organisms, cells and micro organisms to produce best medicines that will never harm the environment. Biotechnology can be explained with three main topics such as Biochemistry, Gene Technology and Molecular Biology.

 

Scope for Biotechnology:

              Biotechnology has become one of the most demanding engineering courses which have widely opened opportunities for all Biotechnologists in India. The growing demand for Biotechnology in India has made many foreign companies to seek the help of Indians to set up their Biotechnology companies here. There are wide ranges of jobs available for a Biotechnologist such as in Chemical Industries, Textile Industries, Drug and Pharmaceutical research industries, Food processing and Bio processing Industries. Government sectors like Thapar Group, Biocon India Ltd, Hindustan Antibiotics, IDPL , etc., are ready to hire fresh engineering graduates from this Biotechnology groups.

 

  • Bachelor of Technology in Biomedical Engineering:

              This is one of the engineering courses which attract more women candidates than any other usual courses. Also, Biomedical engineering stream is selected as a best area to work according to a survey conducted by IEEE’s Spectrum magazine. Biomedical Engineers must have sound knowledge in both the theoretical and practical concepts of medical sciences.
