I am from a country named India. The most prestigious college entrance exam in this country is IIT-JEE. An Indian boy named Shitikanth was the topper of this examination and also he got 18th rank at IPhO 2008. He always wanted to do research in Physics but after entering IITs (Indian Institute of Technology), he took B.Tech. instead of B.Sc. I want to know why he did that. Are the syllabus of both of them similar? Is there any way we can do research in Physics after doing B.Tech.? Please I really wanna know this.
