Many say that there is just a difference of nomenclature between BE and B.Tech in the Indian educational system. Although this might be true for some branches, there is a slight difference which helps students choose the right course for them. BE is more knowledge and innovation-oriented, while B.Tech prefers focusing on practical application and in-field knowledge.
B.Tech in Food Technology is a relative novice branch. However, it gained its momentum as a popular career option pretty quickly, as our country’s considerable percentage of income is still based on agriculture. The degree introduces students to food science, various practices of storage, packaging, efficiency and nutrition. The course is related to everything post-cultivation.

Here are the 4 best engineering colleges in Delhi based on NIRF (National Institutional Ranking Framework), alumni feedback, and validation of syllabus provided.
