Getting into undergraduate engineering program (BTech / BE) is a big decision just like choosing any career path after completing 12th from Science stream. The decision is not to be taken lightly because it needs time, money and most of all good preparation to get into a decent college with a proven placement track record. The Aspirant has to prepare for entrance exam, choose a college depending upon the kind of engineer he wants to become and then paying a hefty amount of fees. Among all three, the second aspect is often decisive of what kind of life a student has ahead. Also, the branch of engineering chosen is also to be pursued in higher education (MTech or ME) after performing well in the undergraduate course. So, to better decide with the options available, go through the list of the prominent branches of engineering given below:

  • Genetic Engineering
  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Plastics Engineering
  • Food Processing and Technology
  • Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Computer Science Engineering
  • EC Engineering
  • Electronics Engineering
  • Automobile Engineering
  • IT Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • IC Engineering
  • Petroleum Engineering
  • Dairy Technology and Engineering
  • Agricultural Information Technology
  • Power Engineering
  • Mining Engineering
  • Marine Engineering
  • Naval Architecture
  • Motorsport Engineering
  • Metallurgy Engineering
  • Biotechnology Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Production Engineering
  • Infrastructure Engineering
  • Textile Engineering

Biotechnology Engineering, Bioinformatics and Genetic Engineering are among the streams that students of both Mathematics and Biology group can take up. Both private and public sectors are willing to take up skilled engineering professionals who know their subject matter well and have been apprenticed to handle real-life situations. Job profiles they can get into could be, Trainee Engineer, Chief Engineer, Junior Engineer, Assistant Engineer, Project Engineer, Supervisor, and so on so forth. After getting into jobs, they can climb the corporate ladder gaining experience as well as expertise in their field which adds to their reputation over a time. This reputation can help them become a well-known engineering consultant for the projects that both Government and Private sector seek.

Also higher education in engineering prepares an engineer to become a lecturer in colleges and guide new batch of students to venture into a career of turning scientific theories into tangible innovations. Doing this is also a sort of service to the community because educating students in engineering helps the science and technology grow at a faster pace.
