B.Ed. After B.Tech / B.E. for engineering grads – Is it a good career choice?

  1. Engineering Discipline:
    Computer Science

    A lot of engineering students aspire to become teachers. As some guy wisely said – In India students first become engineering graduates, and then decide what they want from their career. Therefore, it’s a phenomenon unique to India that B.E. or B.Tech graduates want to pursue career in teaching in primary-level, middle or high schools. This might mean to some that they are leaving behind their technical careers, but it is a reality for majority and we must embrace it – till the time comes when serious amendments are made to the education system.

    Students who come to big cities from remote villages for engineering have to sometimes return to their hometown because of lack of job opportunities or other responsibilities. One of the many logical career choices for them is – going for a career in teaching.

    Some would say that, getting a M.Tech degree would be the best thing to do, as most (not all) M.Tech degree holders opt for the jobs of professors in engineering colleges. However, if you ask me, I think engineering freshers teaching young school children seems like a much better picture to me than M.Tech freshers teaching B.Tech students.

    So, this discussion is all about discussing opportunities of doing B.Ed. after B.Tech / B.E and how engineers can chart their paths in this territory.

    Let’s start with the first and foremost obvious questions –

    • Can I do B.Ed after B.Tech or B.E.?

    Yes. Absolutely. Until 2015, some universities didn’t allow B.Tech students to opt for B.Ed. courses, but now most have lifted such criteria.

    For teaching primary schools the teachers require D.Ed.
    For teaching secondary school onwards, the teachers require B.Ed
    (As there are specific methods to teach each subject.)

    • Eligibility Criteria for doing B.Ed after B.Tech or B.E.

    10+2 OR Graduation (B.E., B.Tech, B.Sc., B.Com, B.A) from recognized university with at least 50% marks. You have to take the entrance exam of respective university OR college and score well to get a seat in your desired college.

    • Entrance Exam preparation subjects for B.Ed.

    In general, you will see the following topics:

    1. General Aptitude
    2. Quantitative Aptitude
    3. General Awareness
    4. English Comprehensive
    • List of B.Ed. Entrance Exams
