It depends upon the college you get after counselling and what career option do you want to chose. I would personally prefer to complete BTech and then go for MBA rather than MTech

It depends on your career goal.

If you want to accept job offers or may want to go abroad for higher studies then B. Tech is enough.
If you want to choose a career in research or teaching then M. Tech is better option.

Just sharing some of my personal actions . I opted for B.E in EC and dropped after 3 months; College was in top 8 in Gujarat.
Found that i had to suffer from lots of things other then my area of interest and thought i will not clear that 4 year with good ranks . Opt for UCEED and failed to qualify ; So will take admission after a 1 year long break .

You want to pursue so as to not stuck in your career after say 10 years. This is what is happening with me right now. BTech will get you a job easily but it won’t satisfy you after few years..

First you need to understand the difference between CS and IT. If you are passionate about programming languages or software development then go for Computer Science (BTech CS, Bsc CS, BCA, MCA) but IT is different. IT is focused on Operating Systems(Linux), Networking, Data Warehousing, Network Security etc.

Go for integrated MSc IT, it is equivalent to BTech and cost are lesser compared to BTech
Degree and marks only matter for first 2-3 years of your career
later on is how you can learn new skills, get ahead and sell you self
you can be from an IIT and keep earning a package of 12L life long
or you can be like one of my friend, who did BSc IT and now works in Microsoft with a Package of 30L with experience of only 7 years

This doesnt hold true for Mumbai university, only Difference here is , CS has more subjects related to computer hardware design like microprocessors, more physics and math.
Programming language wise both teach you the same ones

It all depends on the college of choice, faculty and the placements scenario in the colleges being considered. Getting an entry point is most important in today’s competitive world so if you have a college providing good placements then go for it blindly.

Purely going by the course structure obviously M. Sc. in IT might have a bit more knowledge imparted on you but then again, if the faculty isn’t the best and the placement scenarios isn’t the best then better opt for B. Tech in CS. It’s not a straight forward answer, so do share more details on which colleges you are considering for each of the degree being considered.

Keep one thing in mind, if at all you graduate and find it difficult to get a job the longer the gap in your career the tougher it would be to get a decent placement so give utmost priority to placement statistics. Yes, you can self learn but getting a job using self learnt skills isn’t easy, especially when you are just starting off with the first job ever. All the self learnt skills will help you excel in your career once you start working for a rapid acceleration but don’t bet on such skills to begin your career.

In the college I have done my MS by Research from the undergrad students, B. Tech, had the highest packages being paid , then MS by Research and Ph.D. (a few do get lot higher packages than B.Tech. but considering the mean salaries I would rate B.Tech better) then M. Tech and then MS IT. So basically some doing their B. Tech from our college are trusted to have much better skills accumulated over a period of 4 years than someone who has done more advanced studies in the form of MS by Research so do consider this.

Crack IIT / AIEEE then choose B.Tech. C.S. ( or good college if u can afford as private colleges are expensive )
If planning to to M.Sc. IT then depends on college. While doing M.Sc. IT learn latest technologies from the core and have good practical hands on experience so to get good job.
