Common Questions about Engineering Course :

Ques : Which is the best engineering course that can be taken after 12th?

Ans :There is no specific one which I can point out to you. You see there are several branches of Engineering that have good scope. Therefore my recommendation always is that you look through the branches and see what interests you the most rather than taking my advice.

However since you have asked i would point out some choices for you. According to me the best picks are:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Electronics and Communication Engineering

Civil and Mechanical are considered evergreen branches of the Engineering wtih huge scope in India. These two have been the top choice for students for several years and I would definitely suggest that you take a look at these branches and see if you are interested in it.

Aerospace is difficult but very interesting and the job opportunities are good. Out of all choices I have mentioned Aerospace can offer highest paid jobs. Aerospace is not often recommended to any student. But the scope in Aerospace has increased over the years and today you can really make a good career in Aerospace.

The Aerospace Engineering deals with flying vehicles that can go out of Earth’s orbit like the space shuttle, rockets, satelites etc. Aerospace Engineers are also required to design missiles for the warfare.

Coming to my favorite branch of Engineering, Electronics and Communications. The reason I recommend ECE to the people is because of variety of jobs available in this branch. You can get job in PSU, IT, Telecom or Consumer Electronics companies after completing Electronics and Communication Engineering.

There are perhaps more jobs for ECE candidates in PSU then any other branch. All you need is B.Tech degree with at least 60 percent marks. A valid GATE score would also improve your chances of getting PSU job. Some of the companies where you can apply are:

GAIL,BHEL,BEL,DRDO,ISRO,Indian Railways,IOCL,ONGC,HAL,Microsoft,Google,IBM,HP,Intel,Infosys,Facebook,TCS,Wipro,HCL,BSNL,Airtel,Aircel,MTNL,Vodafone,Idea,Uninor,Reliance Communications,Tata Tele etc.
