Dear Aspirant,

Your question itself is surprising.

Engineering is a field of hard science and Chartered Accountancy is a field of account/commerce.

There is absolutely no relation between these two career streams.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo a psychometric test from which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar

-Hello Dear Friend,
Welcome to!!!
Thanks for visiting and writing to us with your query.
Well from your question it seems that you are not at all aware about the Engineering and Chartered Accountant. So lets see how these two career options differ-

Well talking about the Engineering its a career option that one can opt either after 10th by taking an adoption for Diploma or by taking admission for Science stream for 11th and 12th with Physics,Chemistry and Mathematics subjects. On the successful completion of the Std 12th from Science with PCM group one has to give an Engineering entrance exams like IIT JEE for IITs,BITSAT for Birla Institute of Technology,DAIICT for Dhirubhai Ambani Institute etc. After 12th an Engineering Degree Course is of 4 years and on the successful completion of this course you earn a B.E or B.Tech degree.

Here is detail about Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering Details-

Creation of well equipped devices for various purposes is unavoidable in the emerging era of automation and process industries. The study of applied electronics & instrumentation deals with designing and development of instruments and devices that can measure, control, regulate and record data involved in various industrial processes. Some major courses offered by most institutes include.
They are trained in programming techniques, design communication networks composed of sensors, actuators, PLCs, Control theory and so on.

Major Power plants, refineries, compressor stations, and several other manufacturing plants and research institutions need well equipped manpower with good understanding of modern equipments used in the industry. This branch of engineering finds application in robotics, chemical engineering, rolling mills,process control and many such engineering disciplines.

While Chartered Accountant belongs to the Commerce Field. A Chartered Accountant is a professional course that deals with Accounts & Auditing part of the Companies. So its branch that deals with Commerce. A candidate willing to get for CA can come from any stream but having a commerce background for CA is always a plus point because major accounts concept you learn in Commerce.
So one can get into CA right after 12th commerce.

I Hope you find this information useful and helpful.

Wish you Good Luck !!!

Feel free to get in touch again.

Thank you

Warm Regards,
Prathamesh K.

Welcome to

I am confused myself, by what your question means?
Because I am very sure, you know the difference between the two fields.

Are you then here referring to:

  1. Difference between the two in terms of Job roles and responsibility
  2. Can both work in a same industry
  3. Financially, are both paid the same or which is better paid.

As an Electronics & Instrumentation engineer, one needs to opt for 12th Science, and a PCM option, after 12th clear entrance exam and then is eligible for a 4 years B.E / course.
These are engineers mainly into manufacturing of devices needed in various fields.
As such CA is a Financial related course, dealing with accounts and taxation.
Any 12th pass, with knowledge related to Math and an interests in Accounts can opt for a CA course.

As such since CA is related to managing the finances of an organization, they can work hand in hand with an Instrumentation engineer or in an engineering or manufacturing firm.

A CA can work in an engineering firm, but not the other way round.
Also please note that as mentioned earlier any 12th can pursue CA, as an engineer too, if you have interests in Accounts and budgeting, CA can be opted.

Both at the beginning of their career are excellently paid, then depending on their years of experience, ones income would vary.

But mind you both are two extreme fields. Difficult to think of them as working in sync or parallely. One generally relates to the Science or technical field, whereas the other is purely Financial field.

Think before you make a choice.

Hope this helps you with your issue.

Wish you good luck....
