To answer the first part of your question, like most BSc courses, a BSc IT degree too is a 3-year course. In comparison, BE and B.Tech are typical engineering degrees, i.e. they are of four years duration. Secondly, a BSc IT is regarded as a very good stepping stone towards attaining higher degrees like MCA or MSc in IT or even Java and CCNA certifications. In conclusion, it is a competitive graduate course choice that helps you land a decent opening in the IT sector. In comparison, the BE or parallel degrees are more attuned towards software engineering jobs though there are no rules in this niche.
In terms of their professional worth, IT companies have begun placing candidates from both streams in the same bracket for software development profiles. This practice is more common among companies wherein there is a dedicated in-house training program during the early part of the job. However, the general perception among people is that the BSc degree is less comprehensive than the BSc (IT) degree though the job prospects might be eventually similar.
