The engineering course is regarded as one of the most challenging degrees in the world. It is a course spanning four years and consists of 8 semesters, with each semester consisting of theory subjects and various labs. The students can choose the specialization at the beginning of their course. Based on their choice, they acquire specialization in a specific degree at the end of their four-year engineering studies.
Let us have a look at some of the most common engineering specializations and the career path students can opt for:
Computer Science Engineering
Computers and computer science graduates are needed everywhere: the IT field, banking, FMCG, teaching, or even the manufacturing sector. A B.Tech in Computer Science graduate can choose to be a Software Engineer, Database Programmer/Designer, Computer Animation Expert, Quality Assurance Specialist, web developer, programmer, hardware engineer, manage information systems, information Security Specialist, be a professor and teach other students their trade or pursue M.Tech or MBA and Ph.D. later on.
Electronic engineers work in industries which manufacture electronics like VLSI or ULSI based IC’s & PCB’s, chipsets for both computers and mobile devices, industrial-grade equipment, and in organizations where electronic equipment are extensively used, like TV, mobile, computers and radio, aerospace industry, automobile industry, computer-based industries. Again, the students can also pursue higher studies, post-graduation, Ph.D. if they like.
Mechanical engineers are employed in manufacturing industries, mostly, which include working as a Design Engineer, Automobile Engineer, Quality Engineer, Production Engineer. Both government and private sector jobs are available for this evergreen specialization. The students can pursue higher studies, get a doctorate, appear for government exams, or be a university professor.
Civil engineers are heavily in demand in public and private sectors in all branches of design and construction. They can also work as Bridge Engineer, Forensic Engineer, Design Engineer, Offshore Design Engineer, Offshore Construction Engineer, Structural Consultant. Option to pursue a post-graduation and subsequently move to research or teaching sector is also on the cards.
Nowadays, there is no home, company, or manufacturing unit which can function without electricity. Every machine, be it big or small, is powered by electric current, and that alone emphasizes the importance of an electrical engineer in an office, company, or a public sector undertaking. Essential electrical equipment manufacturers like radio, satellite, communications, TV recruit electrical engineers as a necessity.
Food Process Technology
B.Tech in food technology is definitely for students who want to create a niche in the food-related industry. The student is exposed to various modern technologies related to food marketing, food processing, food, and related research methods such as packaging, chemical balances of food, nutrition, microbiology, etc. The graduate’s career path can be that of a Quality Assurance Manager, Food Scientist, Food Researcher, Quality Control Manager, Product Development Specialist, Process Manager, Food Consultant, Research & Design Engineer, Food Packaging Manager, and more.
This degree is pursued by students who want to be a part of advancements in Biotechnology and its application in industries like agriculture and medicine. After graduation, the students get jobs at Biotech Food and Pharmaceutical companies in the agriculture sector companies, specifically in developing genetically modified food products, or as qualified and trained teachers and professors at universities.
