In-demand streams of Engineering


Forever growing and diversifying

India is the largest producer of engineers as approximately 85% of 16-18-year-old youth show interest in the field. In 1847, the first Engineering College was established in Uttar Pradesh, India called Thomason College for the training of Civil Engineers which later became IIT Roorkee (Indian Institute of Technology).

With the change in time and development of new technology, Engineering Stream is growing and is being diversified with time. In the current scenario, a student who wants to pursue his/her career in the field of engineering has various options available.

Engineering subject is so vast that students sometimes get confused when they have to choose an apt stream. Choice of career plays an important role in impacting your life and shaping your career. Most of the students find it difficult to gather the right information and guidance that can help in selecting a right career path for a better future.

Some of the most important in demand streams of engineering are-

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is defined as the discipline to apply the principles of engineering, physics and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is also one of the oldest branches of engineering that involves designing, development, production and use of mechanical tools to solve mechanical issues.

Make in India, traditional boundaries of the stream are expanding to new areas such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, and environmental conservation to empower India. This stream of engineering is the most sought branch preferred by students for admission across India in the recent years.

Computer Science/IT

shopping, ticket booking for travelling etc. we are dependent on online platforms making it omnipresent in our lives. Computer Science is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information.

As a student of Computer Science Engineering you are supposed to study algorithms, programming languages, operating systems, database management systems, computer networks, computer graphics and artificial intelligence. TCS, Infosys, Wipro, etc. are one of the Top IT Companies with higher salary providers. Their main job is to develop software and hardware systems of various aspects of computing.

Demand for Computer Science Engineers will remain in constant demand as long as dependence on computers and related gadgets will exist.

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the second oldest professional engineering stream that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physically and naturally built environment, including road, building, canal, bridge, canal and dam works. As India is a developing country it welcomes innovative and cost effective ideas, creating more career and job opportunities in private as well as in the public sector.

It is the only stream of engineering that can provide you with army uniform and a chance to serve the nation proudly. Indian civil engineering graduates are highly demanded in Asia, Africa and Middle-East countries especially IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) passed out. Construction, Hydraulic, Coastal and Ocean, Transportation, Material, Structural, Urban, etc. are one of the important branches of Civil Engineering that you can consider for a job.

Civil Engineering plays an important role in civilization, urbanization and modern nation in terms of infrastructural framework.

Electronics and Communications

Electronics and Communications Engineering is the utilization of science and math applied to practical communications fields where engineers engage in researching, designing, developing, and testing of the electronic equipment used in various communications systems.

Due to the electrical engineers we are able to communicate and make our life easier via various communication devices such as telephone, television and radio.Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL),Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), Intel, etc. are among the top Electronics and Communications Company in India.

System engineers, research engineers, controls engineers, communication engineers and electronic engineers, as well as researchers and university professors are few career options available for Electronics and Communications graduates.

Electrical Engineering

In the current scenario the whole nation could stumble in the absence of power as in modern days electricity is required everywhere, from agriculture to gigantic rocket manufacturing. Electrical Engineering is defined as the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism.

It is one of the evergreen fields of engineering where you can get a job in steel factories, the railways, at construction sites or handle automated systems in which electricity supply and distribution plays a crucial role. Bajaj International Private Ltd., Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and Centre for Electronics Design and Technology are one of Top Recruiters of Electrical Engineering graduates in India.

Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace Engineering is the primary field of engineering that deals with the design, construction and development of the aircraft and spacecraft operating. There are basically two major branches in this field: Aeronautical (craft operating in outer space) and Astronautical Engineering(operation beyond the atmosphere of Earth) where Aerospace engineers primarily design aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, missiles, space shuttles, rockets and space stations.

Aerospace Engineering graduates have wide scope in the field of Aircraft manufacturing, defense services, government research organizations, equipment used by space scientists and skydiving manufacturing, etc. If you aim to get into NASA, you have to take a master degree with a PhD in this field.

Biotech Engineering

Any Technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms to make or modify products for a specific use is known as Biotechnology. The combination of engineering, chemistry, genetics, biochemistry and microbiology is Biotechnology engineering.

Healthcare, Chemical, Agriculture, Food Processing and Technology and Research sectors have ample amount of jobs for Biotech Engineering Graduates. Many private businesses are exploring the field of Biotech by investing heavily in it. In India Biotechnology has benefited agriculture a lot resulting in the second green revolution. As a biotechnologist, you are required to find genes, transform tissue culture, evaluate the condition of plants in a greenhouse, etc.
