Expert Career Guidance - Streams: Engineering | Perfect Mentors


India produces one of the largest number of engineers in the world. This trend has started right from the British Rule. British invasion did bring negative results but there has been some positive changes as well. And one of the contribution that British have contributed specially in engineering field. So basically what is this engineering is all about?

Well, Engineering is the use of math and science to solve the problems. They basically apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Main work is to connect scientific discoveries with commercial applications which meet both societal and consumer needs. In India, the under-graduate course of Engineering Course gives the degree of B Tech that is Bachelor of Technology. B Tech is generally a four year course and further options of post graduations are too available, namely M Tech and MS. M Tech generally concentrates on first year in course work and second year on project. MS keenly focuses on research, thus it can take more than two years to complete.

The Engineering specializations in graduation or the B Tech degree can be taken in following field, as follows

  • Aeronautical Engineering.
  • Chemical Engineering.
  • Mechanical Engineering.
  • Civil Engineering.
  • Computer Science Engineering.
  • Electrical Engineering.
  • Biotechnical Engineering.
  • Environmental Engineering.
  • Automobile Engineering.


Engineering field with its core fields like for example mechanical engineering has come up with other sub-branches too namely, automobile engineering. There are other sub branches too. India has rapid growth in engineering sector for past quite a certain amount of time. The scope of work for engineers are huge. Many engineers develop new products especially chemical engineers to be naming few. There are engineers who are mainly part of design and drawing, maintenance, development, testing and production. They also estimate cost and time required to complete projects. Engineers use computers extensively to monitor to produce and analyze designs, to stimulate and test how a machine works, how it's performing, monitoring quality and controlling its process. Each department or specifications of engineering has its own respective works, based on which students should make wise choices. For the future prospects as India is digitally progressing the education as well as the profession field too widens.

The three basic or core streams of engineering that is civil, electrical and mechanical can never be replaced with and most importantly these three branches has withstand even phenomenon likes of recession. So it is advisable for students to make wise choices as per strength and capability.

 Entrance examinations

The most common entrance exam for engineering in our country is IIT-JEE. And the criteria or the rules changes slightly each year because of the strength of student appearing each year. Generally exams are held during the months May-June.

Commonly held Engineering entrances, as follows

  • KCET

Major Books for Physics are as follows

  • HC Verma – Concepts of Physics (Part I)
  • HC Verma – Concepts of physics (Part II)
  • IIT JEE Physics – DC Pandey
  • Problems in General Physics – I.E. Irodov
  • Physics for IIT-JEE- Resnick, Halliday, Walker.
  • Problems in Physics- S.S. Krotov.

Major Books for Chemistry

  • Organic Chemistry by O.P Tandon.
  • Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by R.C Mukherjee.

Major Books for Mathematics

  • S.L . Loney.
  • R.D. Sharma


Around 16 lakh seats are now available now, as per latest reports. There are several coaching centers like Akash Institutes, Brilliant coaching Materials, FIT-JEE for training for entrances

Like other competitive exams engineering entrances has certain tactics which if followed can make the journey from preparing for the exams till the exams given and may be further till results can be really useful. We will touch few of the major points that can be helpful for the upcoming students. One of the major point of focus is Time Management. Since the exams held for particular time period thus managing time that too with quite a huge number of questions can be a daunting task. So practicing regularly is key to success such exams. Proper Mindset is the other key factor for success in any sphere of life as such. Being positive is always necessary because half the battle goes in mental level which at times makes us down or low. Next is there should be a proper study plan for these sort of exams. Wherein a student analyses his or her shortcomings and accordingly start preparing for it. Dedication is another key factor. It can be pretty monotonous as well as intimidating for the students but if focus as well as correct support system is there then everything is achievable.
