The engineering discipline is one of the four pillars of STEM education. The scope of study extends to the application of science and mathematics concepts to solve the problems of the real world through building and designing things. The term ‘engineering’ has stemmed from the Latin word ‘ingenium’ and ‘ingenaire’ that means cleverness and to devise respectively. This field of study relies primarily on logical, creative, rational thinking skills....
Engineers evaluate, design, develop, test and modify a variety of products right from giant bridges, tunnels, highways, machines to small cell membranes and robust software applications. The work of an engineer entails planning, process and overlooking the manufacturing of things to consulting or teaching the art of engineering to the students and trainees.
The Study in India partner institutes offer Engineering discipline in 3 levels, namely - Undergraduate, Postgraduate and PhD. The choice of courses depends on students and eligibility set by different institutes.
1) Undergraduate (UG)
B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) is a 4-year full-time degree. The students can pursue it after completing their 10+2 in the Science stream (with a subject combination of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or Biology, depending upon the choice of course).
2) Post Graduate (PG)
M.Tech (Masters in Technology) is a 2-year-full-time degree and the students can pursue it after completing B.Tech.
PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) in a particular subject of engineering is a doctorate level degree and the students can pursue it after completing their post-graduation in the concerned branch or other related fields.
Branches of Engineering:
Engineering discipline encompasses many branches and given below are the range of options offered by the Study in partner institutes.
Note: Some of the Study in India partner institutes may require scores of one/two additional exams (for engineering courses) such as GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering), JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) Mains, JEE Advance, GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), SAT I (Scholastic Aptitude Test), SAT II, GRE (Graduate Record Examinations, TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System). Therefore, students should check the additional requirements through the Institute Search page.
However, some of the most popular branch choices of the engineering field include:
A) Civil Engineering
Civil engineering involves planning, designing, and construction of infrastructures projects (such as railway, water supply, roads, railways, and airports), buildings, tunnels, bridges, and dams. The projects of civil engineering can be both public or private and it has sub-disciplines operating under them. The sub-disciplines of civil engineering include surveying, structural engineering, and environmental engineering.
B) Electrical / Electronic Engineering
Electrical and Electronics Engineering often sound similar but they are different with respect to the scope of the study. Electrical engineering involves learning about electricity and its functioning, transmission, as well as storage whereas Electronic engineering involves designing electronic circuits, electronic systems, and integrated circuits. After pursuing electrical engineering a student can opt to do work in areas like computers, electronic gadgets, navigation systems, power plants, etc.
C) Chemical Engineering
Chemical engineering is a multi-disciplinary branch that uses the nuances/concepts of both experimental science with life sciences. It involves the development of commercial processes that may be utilized to convert raw material into useful products such as petrochemicals and medicines at industrial set-ups. The work of chemical engineers extends to product analysis and design, control engineering, chemical reaction engineering, nuclear and biological engineering.
D) Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering. It involves the designing, manufacturing, maintenance, and inspection of machinery, components, and equipment like engines, vehicles, robotics, aerospace products, etc. The study of mechanical engineering incorporates the understanding of theories of mechanics, material sciences, dynamics, thermodynamics, and structural analysis.
E) Computer Science Engineering
Computer Science engineering involves the analysis of algorithms, program design, programming languages, software, and computer hardware. The work of computer science engineers ranges from managing the software hardware and networks in any industry, developing software applications, designing/ developing hardware components of laptops and PCs to writing code and algorithms for operating systems such as Linux, Windows, etc.
Please note, eligibility for various courses under engineering discipline differs across institutes. Therefore, before applying the students can confirm the same through the Institute Search page.
