    Top 7 Engineering Branches Available in IITs

    Posted: 31 Jul 2014 05:21 AM PDT

    Engineering is a science of learning and applying scientific and practical knowledge to develop newstructures, machines and systems. In short, engineering is a vast field that comprises of an array of

    specialized areas like Electronics, IT, Mechanical, Automobile, Chemical, Marine and many others.

    Top 7 Engineering Branches Available in IITs

    In India, engineering is quite a popular career option; with every second parents want their child to be

    an engineer. Since even a graduate level engineering degree holder earns a decent sum as their salary.

    Additionally, employment opportunities are vast in engineering irrespective of whether the economy

    is enduring recession or bloom.

    If you enjoy studying chemical formulas and solving mathematical problems, engineering is a

    lucrative career choice. The new branches of engineering like robotics, laser, ultrasonic technology

    and nanotechnology makes engineering the most sought after career option.

    Here are some of the engineering branches you could make your career in.

    Computer Science & Engineering

    As the name implies, Computer Engineering studies elements from both electrical engineering and

    computer science. Computer Science and Engineering has become one of the most sought after career

    opportunity in the recent years. Computer engineers also carry out the research work on robotics.

    A Computer Engineering degree holder possesses excellent employment opportunities in hardware

    and software. In fact, there are amplebenefits of studying computer science and engineering

    from IITs.

    Candidates interested in this engineering must have excellent logical thinking ability, fair

    communication skills and ability to handle pressure.

    B. Tech and B.E courses in Computer Engineering and 5 Years Dual Degree Course are available in

    top-notch engineering colleges.

    Preferred Institutes for Computer Engineering IIT Bombay, IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Mandi,

    Iit Delhi, IIT Indore, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Jodhpur, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras, IIT Patna,

    IIT Roorkee, ISM Dhanbad.

    Electrical Engineering

    2/4

    This branch of engineering usually deals with the study of diverse usage of electricity and equipments

    that yield and circulate power. In short, this field of engineering involves transmission and generation

    of electrical power.

    Computer, telecommunications and consumer electronics companies are the biggest employer in this

    field. If you dont wish to work with a company, you can also involve in research by joining research

    labs and institutes.

    4 year B. Tech degree course in Electrical Engineering is available in IITs to study electronics

    engineering.

    Preferred Institutes for Electrical Engineering IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Bombay, IIT Mandi, IIT

    Delhi, IIT Indore, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Jodhpur, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras, IIT Patna, IIT

    Gandhinagar, IIT Roorkee, IIT Ropar, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, IIT Guwahati, ISM Dhanbad.

    Mechanical Engineering

    One of the broadest of all engineering disciplines, Mechanical Engineering involves the application of

    laws and principles of Physics to analyze, design, manufacture and maintain the mechanical systems.

    Graduates from this field are usually hired by manufacturing firms.

    Job opportunities are available in both private and public sector. A Mechanical engineer plays an

    important role in agricultural division as they undertake maintenance of agricultural equipment.

    Candidates with mechanical degree have good job opportunities outside India as well.

    4 years B. Tech degree course in Mechanical Engineering is available in premier Indian engineering

    institutes.

    Preferred Institutes for Mechanical Engineering IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Bombay, IIT Mandi,

    IIT Delhi, IIT Indore, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Jodhpur, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras, IIT

    Gandhinagar, IIT Patna, IIT Roorkee, IIT Ropar, IIT Guwahati, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, ISM Dhanbad.

    Civil EngineeringRegarded as one of the oldest engineering branch, Civil engineers utilize scientific and engineering

    principles to design and build bridges, buildings, roads, dams and canals. There are several

    specialization options in this branch of engineering like environmental, construction, transportation

    and geo-technical engineering etc.

    Civil engineers have ample and interesting job opportunities that have no tension of recession. These

    engineers are required to construct or repair structures. They can work for a real estate

    (construction) company or independently. The person should have strong designing and

    conceptualizing skills.

    Chemical Engineering

    The most versatile and lucrative of all engineering branches, Chemical Engineering involves design,

    installation, supervision and operating for plants for producing chemical products. The field also deals

    with introducing new methods of production.

    One of the promising careers, this branch of engineering provides plenty job opportunities for the

    degree holders. A chemical engineer can work in both manufacturing and service industry like

    plastics, power production, biotechnology, chemicals and others. A degree in Chemical

    Engineering from IITsis beneficial for aspirants in every sense.

    4 years B. Tech degree course in Chemical Engineering is available in nearly every top class

    engineering institutes.

    Preferred Institutes for Chemical Engineering IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Kharagpur, IIT

    Hyderabad, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Patna (Chemical Science and Technology),

    Iit Roorkee, IIT (BHU) Varanasi, IIT Guwahati and ISM Dhanbad.

    Electronics and Communication

    This branch deals with electronic devices and software interfaces. Engineers of this field need to have

    direct control and test produced processes. They also have to ensure safety, installation and

    functioning of various mechanisms.
