Engneering has been and is likely set to continue as one of the most popular undergraduate courses being pursued by students in India. The fact that more than 13 lakh engineering aspirants had registered to appear for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2018 (the national level common entrance exam for admission to engineering colleges,) according to the Times of India, is proof enough that engineering is a popular option for undergraduate studies in India.
Once a student has decided to pursue an engineering course (Bachelor of Technology, B.Tech. or Bachelor of Engineering, B.E.) after completing school, the most significant question he has is about the engineering specialisation. “Which is the best engineering branch?” is the most common query among many engineering aspirants.
More often than not, students end up choosing one of the well-known and “popular” engineering branches, irrespective of their interest and aptitude for it. This may happen because of lack of sufficient information about the various options that exist. The engineering colleges and institutes of India offer a multitude of branches that are diverse and span across a wide range of domains.
