List of Technical Courses After 12th

Students graduating 12th in the science stream can opt for different technical courses.

Some are listed below:

  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech)

B.Tech is a professional undergraduate technical course, awarded after 4 years of academic study in the field of engineering. Students can gain admission in B.Tech from any college through either Merit-Based or an Entrance Exam. For Merit-based admission, the candidate must have passed 12th grade with an aggregate of 50% marks in Maths, Physics and Chemistry.

To gain admission through an entrance exam, the candidate must appear for the national level engineering exam JEE Main, formerly (All India Engineering Entrance Exam-(AIEEE), held by National Testing Agency (NTA). This entrance exam tests basic knowledge in Maths, Physics, Drawing, Planning etc. A student can appear for a maximum of three attempts.

Under there are multiple streams:

Stream Description
Civil Engineering Discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the naturally built environment, such as public roads, canals etc.
Aeronautical Engineering Discipline concerned with the development of aircraft and spacecraft.
Automation and Robotics Discipline that incorporates multiple discipline of design, build and programme robotic machines.
Textile Engineering Branch of engineering that deals with the garment industry, fibre line and colour.
Biotechnology Engineering Study of microorganisms, bio-organism and cell functions.
Ceramic Engineering Science of creating objects from inorganic, non-metallic materials.
Construction Engineering Professional discipline that deals with the planning, designing, construction, and management of buildings and infrastructure.
  • Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch)

B.Arch is an undergraduate degree in the field of Architecture. The programme is a blend of theoretical and practical knowledge of planning, designing, constructing physical structures.

  • Bachelor in Computer Science (B.Sc CS)

B.Sc CS is an undergraduate course that offers theoretical as well as practical knowledge in Science and technical subject areas, usually a main science subject such as Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Computer Science. After this students pursue higher degrees based on the science subject they have chosen. A student who has completed a B,Sc in CS can further opt for a professional course in nursing, for example.

  • Diploma in Technical After 12th

Diploma Courses are also available in technical courses. One of the most popular approaches of students undertaking a diploma in technical courses is ‘Lateral Entry’

Holders of diploma in Engineering course can gain entry in 2nd year of any related engineering course, (B.Tech, BSc CS etc). Below are some Diploma courses along with their duration and average fees.

Course Name Duration Average Fees Description
D. Mechanical Engineering 3 years 96,000- 3.16 Lakh Deals with design, operation, manufacturing of machinery.
D. Metallurgy 3 years Upto 75,000 Students study subjects of physical metallurgy and extraction metallurgy
Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering 3 years Upto 1.25 Lakh The course integrates mechanical engineering with intelligent computer control in the design of products
Diploma in Environmental Engineering 3 years 80,000- 2.40 Lakh Branch of Engineering that integrates engineering with environmental control and monitoring

Short-Term Technical Courses for IT Enthusiasts

Apart from the typical engineering courses, IT enthusiasts can also go for specialised technical courses such as:

  • Java: Java is the most widely used technology by top companies in various domains (Banking, Telecom etc).
  • DBA (Oracle): Database Administration course about creating, managing and maintaining huge files. It is the one professional technical course that will always remain in demand since there is no system that works without a database.
  • Cloud Computing: Cloud Computing is the biggest buzz in the IT town. All the biggest IT companies such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft all use cloud services.
  • Animation and Graphics: The animation industry is already catching fire in international markets like Japan, while India is also catching up. All the animation movies, cartoons and 3D Animated games that have caught the world's attention are all a product of the Animation sector.
  • Mobile SDKs (iPhone, Windows, Phone): The mobile sector has been on a booming increase in the last few years. So a possible career in mobile application development proves to be a golden chance for some IT sector aspirants.
  • Microsoft Technologies: Microsoft provides a wide range of technology offerings for IT aspirants ranging from web-based/desktop-based application development.

Scope and Job Profile of Technical Course Graduates

The Information Technology sector is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the economy worldwide. Jobs in the IT sector are bragged and glorified. The Scope of technical courses is wide and diverse. Job profiles of students graduating with Diplomas in technical courses include Project engineering, Design Mechanical engineering, for B.Tech Graduates.

Data Scientist, Data Associate for IT Technical course graduates etc. Business Analyst etc for other technical course graduates.
