These days, with the increasing competition in the field of education, particularly in engineering, choosing a right engineering college and right engineering branch is a very big deal for students. This one decision is a very crucial decision which determines your whole life. Therefore, it is very relevant for you to select a right engineering college and branch for yourself. Here are some of the ways which would help you in making a right decision.
Firstly, you have to decide your priority. Your priority should always be the best option available and best option means ‘selecting the best college with the best stream’. While taking any decision, you must focus on both college and stream. For example, you are getting computer science engineering which is your first priority in some low-grade college and you are also getting mechanical engineering which is your second priority in some good college. In this case, you should certainly opt for mechanical engineering as its scope will be better.
Thus, there is a need for you to make a list of both streams and colleges according to your priority. The priority of stream depends purely on your interest. As far as the scope of a stream is concerned, there is scope in every field only if you excel that field. Now, the question arises ‘how to set the priority for a college?’ The priority of a college depends mainly on the reputation of a college. Thus,
Make a list of most reputed colleges
Whichever examinations you give, whether it is AIEEE, UPTU or IPU; make a list of most reputed colleges. But a question arises again, how to determine, whether a particular college is reputed or not. There are many factors which are as follows:
· Reputation in the corporate world: Try to determine, what is the reputation of a particular college in the corporate world. The best way to do is by talking to the students of that particular college. Also, you can always ‘Google’ about it.
· Affiliation: You must always be careful about the affiliation of a particular college, that is, your college must be approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and university must be approved by University Grants Commission (UGC). You must avoid getting into colleges without the approval as the colleges without these approvals are generally fraud.
· Compare: You must always compare all the attributes of a particular college withy another college. For example, compare the fees structure of two colleges, rank and most importantly the placements that the two colleges provide. You can find all these details on the website of a particular college.
· Visit the college in person: Though it is not possible every time yet you must try and visit a college in person as you get to know many things about the college like infrastructure and environment. So you must visit the colleges which are in your area like Delhi NCR, Ghaziabad, Greater Noida, etc.
Thus, these are the ways by which you can set your priorities of college. If you undertake these points seriously, it would certainly help you in selecting a right engineering college and branch for yourself.
