Big Data is a term that describes the large volume of data of both structured and unstructured that includes a business on a day-to-day basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important, but it’s important what the organisations do with this huge data and it matters a lot. Big data can be analysed for the insights it provides that apparently leads to better decisions and strategic business moves by the decision-makers in the organisations. The term ‘big data’ refers to data that is large, fast or complex that it’s difficult or impossible to process using traditional methods and requires specialised techniques and skills to decipher the huge data.
The act of accessing the strong large amounts of information for analytics has been around a long time. But the concept of big data gained momentum in the early 2000s, when industry analysts articulated what is now is the mainstream definition of big data as the three “Vs” i.e.” Volume, Velocity, Variety”.
Lately the term ‘big data’ has been under limelight, but not many people know about big data till today. Businesses, governmental institutions, healthcare providers and financial as well as academic institutions are all leveraging the power of big data to enhance business prospects along with improved customer experience. With the increase in social media the big data gained a lot of importance in the last 5 years and it is predicted that this trend continues to remain high in coming days in the tech field.
B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) is a 4-years undergraduate degree that is divided into 8 semesters. The course imparts the training to the students with regard to existing and evolving techniques and theories related to Big Data. The course gives a detailed understanding of Statistics, Data Mining, Data Warehousing, Data Visualisation and many more.
The course is oriented towards the development of knowledge related to programming languages of Hadoop and many other related big data languages among the students.
The students who have completed their PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join the B.Tech Computer Science & Engineering (Big Data) course. The interested students are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges for the B.Tech Computer Science & Engineering (Big Data) course.
The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (DevOps) courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.
Let’s discuss in detail
The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (DevOps) course are required to appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or any other institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges in case of merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2.
There are two types of counselling for the eligible students
1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling
The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA).
The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (DevOps) course in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).
2. COMED-K Counselling
The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed or private universities that are affiliated to All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed or private universities for Engineering programmes.
The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (DevOps) course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges and deemed or private universities under management quota.
The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.
The students of B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) course will be studying the following subjects during their course duration.

Big data is influencing the IT industry like the other few technologies or trends that have done in the past. If analysed effectively, massive information caches can help companies improve their decision-making and can enable them to compete on another level. Big data has the potential to change the way governments, organisations, academic institutions conduct business and make discoveries and it's likely to change how everyone lives their day-to-day lives.
The big data is shaping our very lives in a number of ways by helping the organisations to extract better businesses, from the obtained data that is interpreted by the big data analysts. The interested students can join M.Tech/ME or MS courses in Big Data for better understanding of the technicalities of the subject.
Some of the job roles available are:
The fresh B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) students will be earning around 6 lakhs to 8 lakhs per annum. The experienced professionals will be earning around 8 lakhs to 12 lakhs per annum.
Some of the organisations hiring B.Tech Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) students are:
The demand for B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) has increased drastically in the last 5 years. The increase in mobile penetration among the individual is a huge amount of data is generated. Petabytes of data are generated each day and the big data professionals are required in large numbers to decipher these vast amounts of data.
The organisations depend on these data for their businesses, so they are ready to pay handsome salaries for skilled big data professionals. The students who have the capacity and skill for data extraction can join the B.Tech/BE Computer Science Engineering (Big Data) course.
