Best Engineering Stream to Choose in 2016

More than 10 lakh students appear for the Joint Entrance Examination every year. But apart from deciding to make a career in Engineering, it is even more important to decide the Engineering Stream in which one wishes to do his or her specialization.

There can be, of course, two ways of choosing your stream, first is by keeping in mind your interest, and the second is by choosing a stream that pays more. One should debunk the popular myth that the most popular branch is the one that pays the most. In the end, it all comes down to the hard work that a student can put in his studies and the reputation of a particular institution.

Here we have listed down the popular engineering branches and what a student should keep in mind while opting for that branch.

Computer Science Engineering:

If one keeps in mind that he or she has to work in India, then one needs to understand the demand of the engineers in the field of services. The service sector in India is currently growing rapidly, and the demand for software engineers, who can provide technological solutions, is increasing as well. So, one can opt for this stream, but only if when has a grasp over coding. One should also remember that the demand for software engineers is not going to stay forever.

A salary is offered to the graduates from the CSE stream that ranges from 2.4 LPA to 8.5 LPA by different MNCs. The giants like Facebook and Google offer a salary package of approximately 1 crore for IITs and NITs.

Mechanical Engineering:

This is one of the core branches and requires heavy-metal and robust work. This sector is forever growing in India, and all the industries that require heavy metal work employ mechanical engineering graduates. The railways, metros, shipyard industry are growing, and automobile industries will keep on growing. So, there is plenty of scope for engineering graduates to secure a good job in this sector.

The annual salary of a mechanical engineer ranges from 1.8 LPA to 5 LPA.

Civil Engineering:

This is again counted as the core branch since earlier times; civil engineers were considered the best engineers. They helped build the nation’s infrastructure in the forms of roads, bridges, dams, ports, etc., the demand for civil engineers tempered down. Still, since early 2000, the demand has again increased due to the demand for infrastructure development. The site engineers, architectures, etc., are back in the market.

The annual salary given to a civil engineer by the various construction companies varies from 3 LPA to 5 LPA.

Electrical Engineering:

This is the oldest of all the core branches, and even the IT sector employs various Electrical Engineering graduates. They are employed in the sectors where heavy metalwork is to be done.

The salary for an electrical engineer varies from 1.8 LPA to 4.5 LPA.

Electronics and Communication Engineering:

This is the culmination of the core electrical branch and the communication branch. With the ever-increasing demand in improving the mode of communication, this branch is popular nowadays. The students are taught the coding subjects and electronics subjects requiring the designing of the TVs, phones, mobile networks, etc.

The salary of an ECE Engineer varies from 1.5 LPA to 3.5 LPA.

Conclusion:

Many other branches comprise various branches like electronics and instrumentation or aeronautical engineering, or chemical engineering.

In the end, it is for the students to keep in mind that while choosing their branch, they should have a long term vision and not restrict themselves to the branches that are popular during a particular time, to have the long term and maximum benefits out of their education.
