With the advancement of technology and new inventions, the demand for skillful engineers is on the rise. It is true that their contribution to the world of engineering has become an important part of our day-to-day life. In today’s world of creativity, innovations and challenges, engineering seems to be the much-preferred career option for many students in India.

Engineers figure out everything, they understand the concept of how things work and similarly find practical ways for scientific discoveries.

It is truly said by physicist Freeman Dyson that “A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.”

Before taking admission, it is crucial for aspirants to know what their skills are and what they need to do in the field of engineering as a number of institutions and universities offer a wide range of engineering courses. The field of engineering is divided into a specific categories and students need to know about it all. Some of the engineering courses are:

Biomedical engineering: It involves working closely with medical practitioners, including doctors, nurse, technicians, therapists and researchers, in order to determine, understand and meet their requirements for systems, equipment and devices.

Mechanical engineering: This includes studies of construction, vehicle, farm machinery, industrial installations and a wide variety of tools and devices.

Career Assessment Test

Electrical engineering: This involves design, testing, manufacturing, construction, control, monitoring and inspection of electrical and electronic devices, machinery and systems.

Civil engineering: It involves design, construction, maintenance and observation of large infrastructure projects such as highways, railroads, bridges, and many more.

Aerospace engineering: This involves design, manufacturing and testing of aircraft and spacecraft as well as parts and components such as airframes, power plants, control and guidance systems, electrical and electronic systems, and communication and navigation systems.

Computer engineering: This involves practice of designing computer hardware components, computer systems, networks and computer software.

With the increasing demand of engineers, many institutions and universities offer a number of scholarships to engineering aspirants as well. Here, we have prepared a list of institutions and universities which offer engineering courses and scholarships for students.

The Indian Institute of Technology or the IITs have created a special place in India in the field of engineering and technology. Kharagpur was the first place where the institute was set up but now the institute has its branches in most of the cities of India.

The IITs offer a number of postgraduate programs including Master of Technology (MTech), Master of Business Administration (MBA) (only for engineers and post graduates in science), and Master of Science (MSc). The IITs also offer different BTech and MTech educational program called “Dual Degree”. It integrates both undergraduate and postgraduate studies in selected areas of specialization. Scholarships are provided to students and around 25 students are benefited every year.

Birla Institute of Technology and Science

The institute was established in 1964. The transformation of institute from a regional engineering college to a national university was backed by GD Birla and now institute is one of the best private technological institutes in India.

It is that institute which follows “No Reservation Policy” for admission. The institute has 15 academic departments and mostly focuses on undergraduate education in Engineering, Science, and Management. Admission to this institute is solely based on scores in the 12th standard qualifying exam.

Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology

Established in 1956 by Karam Chand Thapar, the Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology offers both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in engineering field. Students have to take the JEE-MAIN exam to get admission into Thapar University for the undergraduate program and students take the MET exam for admission into graduate/postgraduate courses. In India, the university was ranked 10th among engineering colleges by India Today in 2017.
