WBSCTE or the West Bengal State Council of Technical Education specifically deals with the entry-level studies and academics of all of the technical subjects. This is the beginner level if compared to that of the Engineering level academics.

People who are interested in leading a life with the knowledge of technical subjects must go ahead with the courses offered by the WBSCTE. These are the foundation for those candidates before leading into the main scene.

The courses are offered for these subjects, as already discussed above:

  • Chemical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering

As we all know, these are the most basic subjects or the core subjects when it comes to technical knowledge. Right from the medieval ages or the Industrial age, these subjects have been developed accordingly.

By specifically gathering knowledge on these subjects, any individual can go ahead and run a factory or an industry all by themselves. All of these four branches are pivotal in shaping and building the core of the engineers for the future.

Having said that, other branches are also crucial in order to make an entity like an industry or a factory function, however, it is critical that these Engineering branches are the pillars to the field of Technical Education.

With the outgrowth of the digital medium and the digital presence on its own, the Computer Science branch is also gaining extreme popularity among the ranks of the technical prowess.

In the upcoming years, it will also garner the same amount of effort and worth as these particular branches garner, be it from a student’s point of view or from an employer’s point of view.
