Done with your +2 and confused to choose a career option for yourself?If you choose engineering as a career for yourself, it will shape your personality as an individual in every possible way. So, if you are confused to choose a track to walk on after high schooling, and you want to excel your command in programming, development, electronics, mechanics, or construction, you should start with engineering.Bachelor’s in engineering is a basic under-graduation degree.

Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. Many engineers develop new products. Also, the engineers make a good sum of money once they have the knowledge and degree in hand. The aerospace engineer is the next best-paid professional in the field. These experts earn a median annual salary of 77,805 dollars in the US. The most experienced aerospace engineers can earn up to 122,050 dollars per year.


It is a four-year course after your 10+2. However, you can also go for embedded courses like B.E/B.Tech+M.E/M.tech, a 5-year course. You need to clear an entrance exam to get into a good institute and earn your engineering degree. You can pursue this degree from many different institutes across India and abroad.

There is a common exam conducted for government colleges. The most renowned and dreamt about college for an engineering aspirant is IIT. However, private colleges generally conduct their private entrance exams. Also, the top state government colleges conduct their own entrance test for domicile holders.

We say, if we kick a random guy, the place where he will end up landing will be an engineering college. The reason being that Engineering is the most picked-up profession in the present scenario. Not because it’s a child’s play but because it strengthens the basic knowledge level most effectively. Engineering is one of the highest paid profession as Biomedical engineers earns a median yearly income of $86,950, while electrical engineers make a median salary of $92,260 annually. Environmental engineers earns a median income of $83,360, while the median income for mechanical engineers is $83,060 per year. As per your branch and your knowledge of subject, you can get highly and averagely paid, as an engineer. Just choose your stream, work hard, clear your concepts and display your skills in the most creative way possible for you, you can then excel in this field with flying colours.
