Best Engineering Streams

A very genuine and common question that comes into the mind of every Science stream !2th passed student is that If they want to go for engineering then which stream they should opt for? To clear all the doubts and misconceptions about the engineering branches that students have, we have listed below some famous engineering streams along with some important details such as the pros and cons of every branch and which are the best colleges in India for that particular branch.

1. Aeronautical / Aerospace Engineering

This branch of engineering mainly deals with flying objects such as rockets, airplanes, helicopters, etc. If physics is your favorite subject and you have a strong hand on topics like rotations, dynamics, motions, and others of the same league then you can go for aeronautical engineering. Along with physics concepts it involves a huge use of mathematics and sketching too. One can opt for this stream if one has an interest in aircraft.

> Pros of Aeronautical Engineering: 

1. In this segment, the crowd is comparatively less than other branches.
2. Packages offered are pretty high
3. Placements are mainly outside India because except Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (H.A.L) there is no such prominent company in India working in the field of aeronautics.

> Cons of Aeronautical Engineering:

1. As there is no scope for mistakes in the field of aeronautics because the responsibility of life of people traveling in the plane designed and developed by engineers comes into play. So you have to be the best-in-class to grab the job opportunities.
2. Very high precision and accuracy are required.

> The best colleges in India to do Aeronautical Engineering are:

A. IIT Bombay (fee around 12 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Hyderabad (fee around 9 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Madras (fee around 31 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Kharagpur (fee around 10.5 lakhs for the complete course)

2. Chemical Engineering

Generally, people don’t opt for chemical engineering as it is not very much sort after branch. Chemical engineering deals with the formation of useful substances or materials by the means of some chemical and biological processes. One can opt for this stream if they have an analytical mindset and have an interest in chemical processes that happens behind normal daily life products.

> Pros of Chemical Engineering:

1. Large demand of chemical engineers due to pandemic situations.
2. Now, India will focus more on the health care sector, so more jobs will be created.

> Cons of Chemical Engineering:

1. As of now, demand is high only due to the pandemic situation, otherwise, this field has a low number of job opportunities.

> The best colleges in India for Chemical Engineering are:

A. IIT Delhi (fee around 8.5 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Bombay (fee around 8.33 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Kanpur (fee around 8.5 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Ropar (fee around 8.6 lakhs for the complete course)

3. Civil Engineering

This branch of engineering deals with the designing and development of infrastructure projects like bridges, buildings, dams, and many more. You can opt for civil engineering if you have an interest in mechanics, hydraulics, building things. Also, computer-aided designing skills are required to work as a civil engineer.

> Pros of Civil Engineering:

1. If you are dedicated enough in this field then you can be known nationwide like “Mr. E. Sreedharan” also known as the “Metro Man of India”.

> Cons of Civil Engineering:

1. Very few job opportunities as of now because in the last decade, real estate is under a lot of pressure and inventories are unsold at a great level.

> The best colleges in India to do Civil Engineering are:

A. IIT Delhi (fee around 8.7 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Roorkee (fee around 11 to 4 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Indore (fee around 8.8 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Guwahati (fee around 8.6 lakhs for the complete course)

4. Computer Science Engineering / Information Technology

It is the most popular branch of engineering nowadays. The demand for computer science engineers all over the world is on the boom. We all know that computer science is related to the designing and prototyping of computer software and hardware. It will continue to be in the boom for at least 3 decades in the future. Everyone wants to be in this sorted branch but the cut-off for best-reputed colleges are often very high that only top rankers can enter into them. One can opt for computer science if they love to make products that reduce human efforts in daily life.

> Pros of Computer Science Engineering:

1. An enormous number of jobs.
2. Uncountable free online courses that anyone can access.
3. Dream packages are offered in this branch.

> Cons of Computer Science Engineering:

1. Coding is essential and students without coding skills are not at all acceptable by the tech-giants.

> The best colleges in India to do Computer Science Engineering are:

A. IIT Bombay (fee around 8.33 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Kanpur (fee around 8.4 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Kharagpur (fee around 8.5 to 10.5 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Delhi (fee around 8.7 lakhs for the complete course)

5. Electrical / Electronic Engineering

Both of these streams of engineering focus on applications of electrical power. The electrical field deals with large-scale production and supply of power whereas Electronic engineers focus on small electronic circuits like IC and other circuits that are used in all electronic appliances. These streams can never be out of demand as it is an answer to the necessities of our life because from Air Conditioners to Televisions everything is because of electrical and electronic engineering. One can opt for these streams if they love to work with devices, power, next phase of technological developments and you want to understand electrical systems.

> Pros of Electrical / Electronic Engineering:

1. They are an evergreen branch, can never have a shortage of opportunities.

> Cons of Electrical / Electronic Engineering:

1. If you opt for these branches without having an interest, it may be the worst decision of your life because everything is technical in these streams.

> The best colleges in India to do Electrical Engineering are:

A. IIT Bombay (fee around 11 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Hyderabad (fee around 8.7 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Indore (fee around 8.8 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Delhi (fee around 8.5 lakhs for the complete course)

6. Mechanical Engineering

It is the oldest and broadest branch of engineering. It deals with designing and manufacturing the mechanical systems and also maintaining them after deployment. One should only opt for this branch if they have an interest in fiddling with mechanical devices if they are coming up with new innovative designs. Mathematics and Physics are a must to become a mechanical engineer.

> Pros of Mechanical Engineering:

1. There are job opportunities and will always be there.
2. No scarcity of ample jobs to date.

> Cons of Mechanical Engineering:

1. The packages offered are not so high.
2. The image of mechanical engineers in India is not so good.
3. Girls to boys ratio are almost 100 is to 1.

> The best colleges in India to do Aeronautical Engineering are:

A. IIT Bombay (fee around 11 lakhs for the complete course)
B. IIT Hyderabad (fee around 8.7 lakhs for the complete course)
C. IIT Kanpur (fee around 8.4 lakhs for the complete course)
D. IIT Ropar (fee around 8.9 lakhs for the complete course)

Many more branches of engineering are there we will discuss them in future. All the best for your admissions and future.
