The demand of Engineering studies has gone up a lot in the last few years. Almost all the universities and colleges in India are now offering different kinds of engineering courses. Anna University is one of the few universities in India that offers 90+ engineering courses.
Other than the popular courses like Electronics, Computer Science and IT, it provides a lot of other courses. Because of the boom of IT industry most students go for Computer Science and Information Technology. However, studying engineering shouldn’t be limited to only these studies.
One of the viable alternatives could be Civil Engineering. India is a developing country. The whole country has a lot of construction projects. Development projects are there in every corner of the country. Students can also study Architecture. It’s currently in good demand.

Another viable alternative is Material Science and Engineering. It has a lot of potential and room for development. India faces an acute problem of garbage disposal and decomposition. That’s why the country needs students who are willing to work towards it’s development.
India is in a transitional period. It’s going through some rapid changes – whether good or bad, that only time will tell. A lot of new opportunities are opening up. With new opportunities, comes new job opportunities especially for engineering graduates.
