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.
