Everything About Engineering Course

Do you know what Engineering means?

Engineering is a word that originated from the Latin word Ingenium. Ingenium means cleverness and ingeniare means to create.

As I told engineering is one of the courses which is developing with time. Engineering courses are available as diploma, UG, and PG courses.

But, here we will be talking about the undergraduate course, that is, B.Tech. B. Tech is a 4-year full-time undergraduate course that gives you an engineering degree.

The duration of the course also depends on the country, university, and course structure you select. There are integrated engineering courses for 5 years too.

Jobs and Scope after completing engineering

Before joining engineering, every candidate will be thinking, about where I will work after engineering and what is the future of engineering.

You can join top companies for a job or you can go for higher studies (like M.Tech) after engineering. There are many candidates who also opt for MBA after engineering. There are many distance educations for higher studies, which you can do parallel with your job.

And regarding jobs, you can work in various fields depending on your specialization. What I found interesting about engineering is that we can diver to any field if we want to in the future.

Jobs are available for engineers in the private and government sectors. There are a lot of companies that are looking for fresh and enthusiastic candidates for their companies in India.

Some of the best recruiters in the engineering field are:

  • Sapient.
  • Infosys.
  • Accenture.
  • TCS.
  • Wipro.
  • Cognizant.
  • Amazon.
  • HCL.

These are just the top recruiters and there are a lot of companies who are ready to take people in.

Salary You Can Expect After Engineering

In the engineering sector, salary depends on the efficiency and experience of the candidate. Starting salary in a decent company will be around Rs.22,000 to Rs.35,000 per month.

After you gain some experience, you can easily earn somewhere around Rs.6 lac to Rs.12 lac per annum in good companies.

For a few branches, there is a great demand in some western countries who will pay you at least 3 times more than the salary in India.

List of Entrance Exams for Taking Engineering Admission

Admission Procedure for Engineering

Admission to any engineering college is based on the marks scored in the 12th standard or the respective entrance exam. Most of the engineering colleges in India, admit students based on their 10+2 marks.

Engineering admissions in Tamilnadu are also the same. I get a lot of queries regarding this. That is the reason I mentioned TN separately.

Few engineering colleges only take admission through entrance exams and personal interviews. These kinds of engineering colleges will be taking the score of:

In these colleges, engineering admissions will be based purely on the entrance score and personal interview. You can also get admission in engineering colleges on the basis of 12th marks.

How to Choose an Engineering College for Admission?

Now that you have got an idea about an engineering course, its scope, salary, and benefits, I would like to tell you how to select an engineering college for admission.

It is not easy to select an engineering college. There are hundreds of colleges in India, and I had made a checklist for choosing your future college.

Job Placements and Recruiters:

The college must have good placement records. Never go for fake advertisements which say 100% job placement. It is not about the placement percentage, it is about what package the candidate has been placed in.

There are a lot of engineering colleges in India that place students in different companies with a monthly salary of less than Rs.20,000. I had even seen people working in place companies for 3 months as a trainee without a salary and later getting fired.

And after all these, the colleges promote themselves as 100% placement college. Choose colleges wisely!

Experienced and Best Faculties

Without a good teacher, a student can never learn anything completely. Inquire about the faculties in the college and especially about the department which you need great care for. The top engineering colleges in India will be having great teachers.

If you have any contacts within the college to inquire about the same.

Engineering College Infrastructure and Equipment

Infrastructure doesn’t mean how big the college is or how many acres the college is built. The college must have basic necessities to learn. The college must have a good library, hostel, mess, laboratory, etc. It would be really good if the college has a research center.

Affordable Fees to take Engineering Admission

The college must only charge affordable tuition fees and extra fees. I know colleges that charge huge tuition and extra fees. And there are some colleges which have very low tuition fees, but very high charges for the hostel, food, laboratory, examination, materials, etc.

Before taking engineering admission in any college, make it clear about the extra fees with the college or consultant.

Here I am not talking about sports and other activities. I mean the extra activities like paper presentations, CDE programs, etc. The college must be supporting all these, which will surely help improve your knowledge for the future.

Scholarships for Deserving Students

There are colleges that provide scholarships for students based on their performance on marks, sports, and other activities. There are few engineering colleges that even provide 100% of scholarships for students. But, if the students fail in any of the subjects after joining the college, the scholarship will be canceled.

Hostel and Food Qualify of The College

There are only a few colleges that provide quality and hygienic food to students. Even I won’t be able to predict the same. But I could refer colleges with excellent and hygienic hostel environments. In a few colleges the hostel fee might be higher than the tuition fees, so please do check with it.

The College Location and Climate

As I told you earlier, there are hundreds of engineering colleges in each state. So you have got great opportunities to choose a college. Then why choose a college which is located far away ay and unsafe place?

Choose engineering colleges that are easily accessible via road, rail, and air. Go for places that have good climatic conditions and also where your child will be able to improve their language and social skills.

These are a few top engineering colleges in India which we are partnered with. You can select any one of the colleges for admission and let us know about the same. If you want to know more details about the college feel free to comment below.
