With the advancement in technologies and conventional methods of living life, everything is developing with a good pace making engineers in demand and engineering, a sought-after profession. There are many who contribute to the betterment of society and engineers will always remain a backbone to modern humanity. Engineering has a wide range of types to select from and almost anything that interests you will be a branch of engineering. suEngineers are the one who set an epitome of uniquely developed projects. With a good effort and a sincere working spirit, anyone can successfully climb the ladder to the long-standing legacy, that is engineering.

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.


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.

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.Almost everything you can see around has been made by some engineering statistics and has an engineer involved in the making of it. The world revolves around engineers and the things surrounding us are a part of it.

After completing your engineering degree, you can go for master’s in your specialization field or even change your specialization field if you want to. You can either go for masters in Engineering (M.Tech) or MBA (Master of Business Administration) or any other master degree. Being an engineer develops you, enhances your personality, polishes your skills and creativity, brings out your potential, opens up many doors for you to choose your career in and makes you "industry-ready". So, work hard and be an engineer. You also have doors open to switch your field after getting your Bachelor of Engineering degree as this is a basic under-graduation degree.
