By Editorial

Life of a student up to standard 10th and 12th is so easy, right?? Limited streams and the only target is to score good marks in the exams but immediately after qualifying the 10+2 and the entrance exams the real confusion starts. Which branch or specialization to take? Which has better job opportunities?? Would the subject be tough for me to deal with?? Countless questions like this arise in the mind of a student. And deciding the right engineering stream is quite tricky for both students and their parents. This is because the list of engineering branches is very big and many new Engineering branches are introduced with time. If you are in the same situation then this article may guide you to choose a suitable stream for you. 



Core Branches:

Earlier, there were mainly three Branches of Engineering like Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. From these branches, many other new Engineering branches came from. Earlier, Engineering was all about creating machines and dealing with electricity and building structures. These three branches are the base of all the engineering branches and this is why they are called core branches of Engineering. 


Advantages of selecting core branches in engineering:

  • The core branches of engineering remain relevant and grounded through time, despite the immense growth in almost all the existing domains of knowledge. 
  • Core branches are involved in every industry in one way or the other. So, job opportunities are available in both the private and public sectors. 
  • These sectors are not too easily affected by the recession. So, job security is there.

This factor is applicable in all the fields. Along with this, the other factors which determine the salary range of a profession are like demand, nature of work, responsibility and accountability of the job, etc. So, some of the highest-paid Engineering branches in India or even highest-paid Engineering branches are as follows:

So go for a branch in which you have interest, enhance your skill then no one can stop you to get success.
