The Engineering Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) is an examination conducted only in the Telugu-speaking states of Andhra Pradesh (AP) and Telangana for admissions in engineering, agriculture, and medicine.
With the state’s growing economy, Andhra Pradesh has seen a rise in educational institutions in diverse streams, especially engineering, medicine, and architecture, to provide more opportunities for students.
For engineering, the possibilities are endless for those who want to pursue a Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) course. With a high-level education quality and high placement rate, Andhra Pradesh is not far from emerging as one of the educational hubs of the country.
Tech courses are for four years and offer many specializations, such as computer science—one of the most demanded among students, currently.
