Top 5 Most Promising Engineering Courses After Class 12th
After taking up the science stream in class 12, the Indian student diaspora is habitually divided to become future doctors and engineers. Not long gone are the days when our parents told us to take science to sort out everything in our lives. Have you ever come across a cliched sentence with the words “engineering” and “scope”? What is the scope of engineering? Well, I am pursuing that scope as an engineering student, and I could not agree more.    Engineering involves logic, aptitude, problem-solving skills, analytic skills, and hands-on knowledge, all of which must be combined to complete the course. As a result, not everyone who has solved 12th-grade math should opt for engineering courses.    Here is a list of some widely pursued engineering branches.

Computer Science and Engineering

    To put it in simple words, CSE involves computer hardware and software and their orientation, architecture, operations, database, security, etc. The stream further diversifies into software and hardware, both having different functionalities.    Software engineering deals with the designing, testing, deploying, and maintaining of computer or mobile software. Software is usually what a coder writes code for. A close eye is kept on the client’s requirements, budget, bug-free environment, and market trends.    Hardware engineering deals with computer architecture, circuits, and switches. A strong base is required for any product to succeed. New products with interesting features that hit the market are all the work of hardware engineers. With changing times, hardware engineers are trying to integrate systems with artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Mechanical Engineering

    One of the oldest branches of engineering, this widely varying field allows one to work in everything from the automobile industry to medical devices. To design, analyze, construct, and maintain mechanical systems, mechanical engineers use a combination of materials science, engineering physics, and mathematical principles. Depending on the industry or type of job they work in, mechanical engineers may have a variety of duties.    They use computer-aided design (CAD) technology to generate designs. Mechanical engineers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is physically possible to produce safer, cheaper, and more efficient machines and mechanical systems. The evolution of a simple wheel from prehistoric times is a mechanical feat.

Chemical Engineering

    Chemical engineers create efficient ways of utilising resources, primarily chemicals and energy. Atoms, molecules, compounds, and polymers are all that make up the branch. In a large-scale industrial environment, chemical engineers mix chemistry and engineering to convert raw materials into usable products, such as pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, composites, and polymers.    Biochemical engineering is a discipline that requires the best of biology and chemistry. It deals with the functions going on in our bodies. From digestive enzymes to decaying bodies after death, the study of all this comes under biochemistry.    So if you love to experiment with vibrant-coloured liquids and want to shorten the time required to pressurise coal into a diamond, this is the field you should explore.

Electrical and Electronics Engineering

    Engineering that deals with the practical uses of electricity in all of its forms, including those in the field of electronics, is called electrical and electronics engineering. It is a branch of engineering that focuses on the research, development, and usage of machinery, gadgets, and systems that rely on electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.    Electrical engineering has a specialisation known as “electronics engineering” that focuses on the application of electronic devices like integrated circuits and transistors as well as the usage of the electromagnetic spectrum. Automobile and aircraft electrical systems, motors, power generators, communication systems, and other electrical devices and equipment are all tested, developed, and designed by electrical engineers.

Civil Engineering

    The design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works like roads, bridges, dams, airports, sewage systems, structural elements of buildings, and railways, is known as civil engineering. Construction is a civil engineer’s primary area of expertise.    Civil engineers create, improve, and protect our infrastructure and environment. To recognise and address engineering issues, a civil engineer needs strong analytical skills as well as a solid foundation in mathematics and physics.    There is always advancement in science; hence, the field of engineering is ever expanding. Apart from the above-mentioned fields, there are many specialisations a student can opt for, namely agricultural, project, automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, etc.    Well, if you are planning to take this four-year-long course for your undergrad, make sure to align yourself with the requirements for the course and industry.
