B.sc Vs B.tech by sgd: 9:44am On Oct 26, 2011
Is there really differences between a B.sc and B.tech graduates from Nigeria universities? Do they have different job opportunities? The number of years they spent in school are different what does this really mean? Are you a graduate or an undergraduate of either, share your views,

Dunno bt I'm reading pure and applied physics (B.Tech) in Ladoke akintola university Ogbomoso, it's a 5 yr course. But in other schools *(B.Sc)* it is 4 yrs and known as pure physics.

One more year to milk a few more nairas from you, and (less important) keep you a bit longer from joining the flooded job market.

The difference, i think, is in the nature of institution and the content of the program.
One is university of technology and awards a B.tech with emphasis on the use, development and application of technology. The other places less emphasis on technology and greater emphasis on theory.

B.tech is suitable for those who want to work in a technology oriented industry or field. B.Sc is suitable for those who want to get into lecturing or research positions.

However, the 5-4 yrs doesn't really matter in the industry.No body asks you how long your program was in the labour market, except if you had an extra yr. I am yet to understand the reason for the discrepancy in years.

In the old days, there was no competition, universities just designed programs and called it anything they liked, based on the particular founding academic's nuances, and NUC did not really try to standardize these programs.
Thank God now people are asking questions.

It's really unfortunate that many of you are not aware that b.tech is more valuable than b.sc globally. B.tech is a professional degree like b.eng,b.arc etc. That's why its 5yrs, and in other developed nations the duration is also longer.
