The two biggest questions puzzling parents and aspiring engineers these days are:
- What university?
- What branch?
Engineering has long been the preferred and “peace of mind” option for a career. Engineers have been shown time and again to be very versatile when it comes to identifying employment. We have seen engineers enter various professional jobs, such as creating a milk revolution, the telecommunications revolution, or becoming politicians, authors, cricketers, or even magicians.
Obtaining an engineering degree was once like a dream come true. Today it is no longer a lucrative profession. The story beyond engineering college is not very encouraging because jobs don’t automatically go to newly graduated engineers. A very important question that needs to be answered is why these many unemployed engineers are produced year after year.
Opportunities follow those students who select the appropriate academic space. Elections are the hinges of fate, Pythagoras said. Especially when you find yourself at a career crossroads and the decision you make today decides the course of your future life.
Here are some tips for choosing the right engineering branch wisely:
The great dilemma: branch or university?
Both are important, both the branch and the university, and you must be really lucky to be the one to get both. However, in a situation where one has to choose, I suggest that students first weigh the available options and thoroughly research the institute’s credentials. Study college websites and make sure the basics of accreditation, etc., are in place. You have all the rights to request these details. Review the past performance of the institute in terms of placements, faculty, and infrastructure. Even if the institute that is presented to you is not as qualified as the top-tier institutions.
Stick to your interest
Their parents or peers force many students to select a particular branch of engineering. These students should consider that future outreach will pay off only when they have the desired aptitude to work in the specific field. The fact is, each branch provides a decent set of opportunities. However, if you end up selecting a branch based on presumed job prospects, it may get you nowhere, regardless of your interest.
Look Beyond Four Years
The engineering degree is not the end of the journey for most students. Many students prepare for graduate school, whether in engineering, administration, or management. It would be wise to plan and weigh options for higher education, training, etc., available in the institute’s city. Students should try to understand life after graduation fully. Each branch of engineering ends in a specific job position. Before selecting an engineering branch, students should meet as many engineering professionals as possible and understand their lifestyle and career perspectives. This will give them greater clarity about the profession and allow them to make the right decision.
All branches of engineering have the potential to offer a great future to the student. More than the selection of the institute, the fundamental thing is the selection of the appropriate branch. Before finishing at any institute, a student must necessarily be satisfied with the institution’s accreditation status. Understand and analyze your aptitude, interest and abilities and apply these details to select the correct branch of engineering. When necessary, feel free to seek professional help in choosing the appropriate branch and institute.
Happy Engineering to you.
