Engineering is a field of study that has emerged a clear winner in the past
two decades. Umpteen number of students have been leaning towards this
field and now there is a scenario where we feel the ratio of engineers
passing out is very high compared to the job availabilities.
This is a situation that can be handled if we scrutinize the branches
available in engineering. Following are few of the very important yet
scarcely chosen branches that pays abundantly and has an exuberant
Petroleum engineering: Petroleum is the primary source of fuel in today’s
modern world, pivotal to a wide range of developmental activities.
Specialising in this field will get you a very good pay right at the beginning
of your career and you can easily be placed in any of the oil production
companies in India and abroad. If energy is your area of interest, this could
be the best choice for you.
Robotics and Artificial intelligence: With technology taking over the
world, Artificial Intelligence has become an integral part of most of the
cutting edge softwares and systems. Robotics is a fast developing field that
has made life simpler for many small and large scale industries. The career
option for this field varies from simple voice recognition and translation
machines to complex hi tech automobile designs.
Industrial engineering: This is one of the most specialised courses in
engineering that is well recognised in industries around the world. It deals
with finding out the most profitable and effective processes that can be
incorporated in a particular industry. This branch is a perfect blend of social
sciences, people, organisations and technology. Hence you have an array
of industries including finance, healthcare and automobile to choose from
as your career path.
Data Analytics: This is one of the fields that has become incredibly
famous in the past five years and it is to stay for many more years to come.
Huge organisations are making their future decisions only with the help of
big data analytics, hence making it an indispensable branch. The data
analyst population is still low while the amount of data to be analysed is
increasing multifold. Organisations are on a continuous look out for data
analysts who can provide them with clear cut ideas and enlightenment on
futuristic trends of the industry.
Nuclear engineering: People keenly interested in physics and the related
subjects should take this course to make it big in a very short period of
time. Nuclear energy has become one of the most powerful resources for
any country and this field is going to prosper for a very long time. With India
making a huge progress in the nuclear world and working on opening up a
number of nuclear plant all over the country, the opportunities for nuclear
engineers are sky high.
All the above mentioned courses are quite difficult to study but once
completed, they act as the ticket to sure shot success. The best part about
these courses are that post graduation or any further study is not required
for you to earn a six figure salary right at the beginning of your career.
