Engineering branches should be chosen on the basis of Interest.
Let us discuss some branches to get an idea. Which engineering branch is best for you :
Electrical Engineering is a Core branch and study of Electricity, Electronics and Electromagnetism. In India maximum opening for Government Jobs is in Electrical Engineering every year compared to the rest of the Engineering branches.
Electronic Engineering is a sub-stream of Electrical Engineering which involves the study of electronic circuits-devices, processors, etc. It is the study of both software and hardware part of an electronic device.
Computer Science is also a sub-stream of Electrical Engineering which deals with the hardware and software part of Computer, using Complex Maths and Algorithms finding new ways to interpret and transfer data. Computer Science is involved in developing new technology (hardware and software) from scratch. Computer Science is purely concerned with the backend development like scientists.
But IT is a sub stream of Computer Science. IT is involved in using the existing technology and developing it further. IT is in contact with customers in front end. IT professional uses critical thinking to work with clients and making models to construct technology plans for Clients and their business needs.
Mechanical Engineering is again a core branch which deals with designing, building and application of machines. Production, Manufacture, Operation Engineering are all sub streams of Mechanical Engineering.
Civil Engineering is also a Core Stream which deals with designing, building and maintaining of structures like Roads, Buildings, Dams, etc.
