The biggest question in the minds of students opting for engineering courses is about the branch that they have to choose. There are plenty of engineering courses and plenty of engineering colleges but to make the right choice can secure the future while making a wrong decision may hamper the efficiency in the coming days. Though it may be improved by an MBA but then the engineering would certainly be wasted.
The most preferred courses in the Indian markets have always been engineering and medical science. Most of the students choose engineering just because their friends have chosen the same. Tofollow is good but to blindly follow others is not always good. For example if one doesn’t have an interest in computer science then he might turn out to be a complete failure in the future as well as during the course.
Girls usually prefer to choose computer science, information technology, electronics engineering and chemical engineering while boys prefer mechanical and electrical the most; when asked the reason why they don’t have an exact answer. This is probably the reason why most of the students get their subjects carried forward to the next semesters.
And this doesn’tend here. This continues to problems in campus selections, to clear job interviews and later during the job. Then the student takes classes to improve communication skills and personality development. Why to search the solution after getting into a problem. It is better to avoid the problem.
Find out and know your area of interest. If it is commerce, accounting, then science is not a better option. If it is engineering, then find out a little more about what the job profile and roles and responsibilities would be if you join a particular course.
For those who want to avoid competition, the better option is the course which is different but available in some colleges. For example fire safety engineering degree is not provided by many colleges in India but there are plenty of jobs as it is mandatory to keep a fire/safety officer in some industries and there is not much competition involved.
