How to Choose Engineering Disciplines During B.E. / B.Tech Admissions?

Do you know the engineering disciplines that are available in undergraduate engineering courses? Do you have any idea on how to choose your branch of study during Engineering Admissions?

If you are planning to study B.E. / B.Tech after your 12th Standard (10+2 / 12th / HSC / PUC), you should know answers to these questions. Here are some tips to choose the engineering disciplines during your Engineering Admissions:

Your Interest

Your interest is the key factor in determining your success in any engineering discipline. Before choosing your branch of study, think over, if it is really your favourite subject and you will be capable of doing it with utmost success.

Engineering College

Enquire if your optional discipline is available with all facilities in the college you are planning to apply for. Because, your optional branch might be added newly in some colleges. Sometimes, such new branches may lack proper lab facilities.

Scope of the Engineering Disciplines

  • Check whether your optional discipline has good job opportunities in the future.
  • In case you wish to do higher studies after your graduation, explore the related specializations that are available in reputed institutions, the scope in the job market, research opportunities etc,.
  • Students that plan to do higher studies or work abroad, may explore on future opportunities available overseas.
