  • 1. PASSION / INTEREST vs SCOPEWhile we may say that scope for a field keeps changing with time, as we see new trends coming up every few years.The reality is, every branch has good scope and opportunities if you perform well in it.Contrary to this, if you take up a branch just based on its job prospects and lack interest in it, you&apos;ll end up getting nowhere.So it is very important to go for a branch that is of your interest.2. INCLINATION vs PEER PRESSURE How many times we have heard this. I took Branch A because my friend Mr X , Miss Y etc also took it. So they must not be fools and I can pick the same. Absolutely NO.What&apos;s your inclination ? Ask yourself simple questions. For e.g. Are you interested in designing the machines and repair it? ( Mechanical ) Are you interested in networking, how internet works? ( IT &amp; Computers ) Are you interested in architecture?  ( Civil &amp; Architecture )Are you interested in study of DNA and RNA? ( BioTech or BioMedical )Trust your gut, it never lies.3. DO YOUR RESEARCHKnow yourself !!At the start of your careers you have choices so you do your homework and research to see what suits your best interests.Whether you choose college A over college B or branch X over branch Y should not be a random decision and instead be based on research on these colleges and the electives they offer under each course.Run through the college websites and the course material they offer under the branch you aspire for to make the right decision.4. SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTISE matters....Engineering provides opportunity to specialise.Choosing one from the various types of engineering disciplines is not an easy job.Digging deeper and knowing more about every branch can help you in making the right choice.It is the same as taking a straight way to your destination or taking roundabouts to get to the same place. Clearer the approach, better will be the results.For example, if you are interested in cars, you might as well want to take up Automobile Engineering instead of Mechanical. But the message is: be sure of what you want to pursue.5. LIFE post EducationIt is critical to understand what kind of professional work is expected out of you once you take up a job.For instance, A Computer / IT Engineering will mean long hours in front of PC&apos;s and confined in a chair for long time. A Mechanical / Production Engineering will mean you on a shopfloor with dust, smoke, machines, grease in your hands and travelling to remote areas for industry setups etc.Think it through and ask family and friends who are already in these fields.6. Further Studies on your Mind
