Engineering aspirants and their parents first discuss clearing competitive exams. After clearing the entrance exam, there is something all-important that needs more discussions. There are Common Entrance Exams for admissions in most of the engineering streams. But which engineering stream is right for you, is a big question. Everyone is born with different interests, capabilities, likes, and dislikes. Before making any final decision about selecting an engineering stream, one should consider his/her interest and ability.
A mass of students wants to take admission in top engineering colleges in India. Then it becomes tough to make a decision which stream you should opt because the seat in your desired engineering stream is not vacant. Multiple facets need to be considered and evaluated before the conclusion.
In this situation, you may take the help of a career counselor. Otherwise, you can give a second thought to your long-term goal and think how available the engineering stream will urge you towards it? Some engineering streams require the necessary skills, interests, and passion. Placement is another factor that should be taken into consideration. Correlate all these things and discuss with parents and counselor.
The Best Engineering Streams
Engineering colleges in India have some of the popular engineering streams that are – Computer Science, Electronics and Communication, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Textile Engineering, Fashion Technology, and Biotechnology, etc.
Computer Science is opted by most of the engineering aspirants because tech India has a substantial foreign investment in this sector, so more chances to get hired by MNCs. Fresh engineering graduates who have analytical abilities have more opportunities to get placed. If you’re among them, then prepare a strong base in Java, Android, AJAX, PHP, XML, CSS, Mathematics, and Semiconductor Physics. Opportunities as a Database Manager and Application developer are available, so seek this as their top priority.
Electronics and Communication
Electronics and Communication is evergreen engineering branch. Students who are avid lovers of Calculus, Probability, and Physics (Electromagnetics, Semiconductor, and Digital Electronics) can perform well in this niche.
E&C engineers with keen analytical ability can join the telecommunication industry, hardware, and embedded system design, etc. This industry offers remunerative opportunities to fresh and experienced graduates.
Civil Engineering is a core engineering branch if interested in this, then you should be imaginative, and know Geometry, Mechanics, Chemistry, and Material Science.
There are lots of opportunities, such as construction, planning, and maintenance, etc. You can join as a construction engineer, hydraulic engineer, or coastal engineer in different industries, even in banks as a specialist officer.
Fashion Technology is a new branch of engineering. It has a worldwide scope. A candidate should have astute skills in Drawing, Craft, Mechanics, Mathematics, Chemistry, etc. An imaginative and analytical mind can perform well in this field.
In Fashion Technology students learn Pattern Design & Appreciation, Apparel Quality Management, Manufacturing Process, Technology Apparel Production, Control Production Process, Plant Layout & Facility Design, Ergonomics, Merchandising, IPR, International Business, etc.
Biotechnology is a new engineering discipline. You can say it’s a sister concern to Chemical Engineering, which is more specific. You’ll learn how chemistry, biology, and physics can be used together to evolve new things for humanity. This course is available in IIT Kharagpur, A premier engineering institute in India.
The biotech invention is widely used in agriculture sectors, the health industry, dairy and fisheries, farming, and the pharmaceutical industry. There is lots of scope for those who make a career in research in this field. The software development industry also has better positions for deserving candidates.
Most of the engineering aspirants blindly follow their elders and mass. Success mantra is to opt a stream wisely and make the right start with passion. Society will not feed if you are jobless, think over that regret and disappointment for not making the right decision.
