New courses are coming up in recent days and there are many people who don’t have much idea about that. So this blog is mainly to explain the difference between an integrated degree course and a dual degree course. To some it appear the one and same course but in reality they are not. They are two very different courses with their own pros and cons.
Integrated means combined, joined or cohesive. So an integrated MTECH. course means a 4year BTECH. joined with 2year MTECH. which can be done in a span of 5 years. An integrated MBA means 4 year BTECH. joined with 2year MTECH. which can be done in 5 years. In integrated course you get both bachelor and master degree combined after 5 years.
You don’t need to give admission test twice. You save one precious year which you can use in future for gaining industrial experience. You get edge from 4 year BTECH. students in placement where the companies need people with more expertise. You save your labor for preparing for one more entrance exam.
DUAL DEGREE COURSE
Dual degree course means to get degree in two different disciplines. For example in some colleges like BITS, they give you pure science streams like physics, chemistry, maths, and other subjects as economics, humanity, etc. for doing your MSc. and you can then pursue your BTECH. and based on your first semester CGPA. So you get two degrees in 5 years. Economics helps students to gain basis knowledge for an MBA and that helps in placements too. Maths help in computing and algorithms. Students from dual degree courses also grab great placements.
So when you are choosing your branch and college, you can try either of the two courses. They have a great scope and save your time also. But it is usually advisable to do such courses from reputed colleges or such colleges whose integrated or dual degree courses are famous.
