Engineering Degree Course Details
Engineering is the most sought after field due to its bright career prospects. Engineers
apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions
to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and
the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. Engineering remains
a popular choice for students due to the attractive pay package, immense scope for
specialization and social reputation it has to offer. In India, Engineering course
can be divided into regular and upcoming courses.
This list serves as a guideline for areas for specialization so that students can further pursue their specific interests within the broad discipline of Engineering as per their area of interest.
For getting admission in any Engineering course
you have to give an entrance exam. IIT conducts J.E.E. (Joint Entrance Exam) for
admission. The eligibility for the candidate seeking admission in IIT is as follows:
Candidate should have passed (10+2) or equivalent qualifying examination and should
have secured at least 60% marks. Candidates who qualify for admission through IIT-JEE
can apply for admission to B.Tech. (Bachelor of Technology), Dual Degree (Integrated
Bachelor of Technology and Master of Technology) and integrated M.Sc. (Master of
Engineering degree course has many specializations
therefore it entirely depends on the individual which stream he/she would like to
opt for. One can either specialize in Information Technology, Mechanical or Civil
Engineering. An engineer can reach up to the level of manager if he shows grit and
determination irrespective of specialization. There are no hard and fast rules regarding
the area of specialization. All the specializations are interlinked; an engineer
can shift from one field of engineering course
to another. For example an IT sector normally employs engineers from variety of
disciplines. You can also start your own business in your area of specialization
but you have to take risks which can fluctuate based on market conditions.
