About Engineering

What is Engineering?


Engineering is the most sought-after stream of education which involves theoretical knowledge of Science, Mathematics, and Technology and their application to design, build, and maintain Machines, Software, Structures, and Systems. Engineering can also be termed as the use of “Scientific Principles” to construct and develop structures which may also include making Bridges, Tunnels, Buildings, Vehicles, etc. Under the discipline of engineering encompassed is a wide range of more specified Fields of Engineering wherein in the focus of each discipline is on particular areas of Applied Mathematics, Applied Science, and Types of Application. The wide range and variety of career opportunities that Engineering offers makes it the most sought-after program pursued by students after having qualified Senior Secondary School in Science Stream.
 

  • Qualifying 12th class with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics from a recognized board is one basic eligibility criterion for admission to Engineering Program.


Engineers' Responsibility


Being an engineer is never too easy. It is engineers' responsibility to figure out how things operate and work out and after giving much thought to it, they put all their efforts to find the practical use of their knowledge for scientific discoveries. Along with Scientists and Inventors, Engineers must also be given credit for innovations they have made in order to advance the human condition.


Engineering Institutes


India has the highest number of engineering institutions that offer engineering program at the undergraduate level with various specializations. The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and some private universities such as Birla Institute of Science and Technology (BITS Pilani) make it to the list of the top and most desired engineering institutions in the country.

The All India Survey of Higher Education also known as AISHE which is powered by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD), Government of India organized a survey back in 2018-19 and as per the report of the survey, Engineering was found to be the third major stream at the undergraduate level. There were 37.70 lakhs of students who registered themselves in various fields of engineering. It was also seen that 70% of the total student enrolled for Engineering and Technology were males and the rest 30% of students were females.
 

  • The institutes are generally ranked based on their yearly performance and placement records. Basically, these colleges are ranked by the government and private ranking agencies such as NIRF, The Outlook, The Week, etc.
     

Below mentioned are the Top 10 Engineering Institutes ranked by NIRF:

Why not Engineering?

  • Engineering is one of the most sough-after disciplines today. The number of students opting for the course has increased sharply over past few years. This has lead to a demand-supply gap in the industry which inturn resuts in a low employabilty ratio.
  • The course has a wide curriculum that encompasses a plethora of subjects. The level of difficuty increases with each semester, therefore those who want to pursue a simple and easy course are not  advised to opt for it.
