Hello There,

Interesting line of study.

To pursue Computer engineering course, you would have to clear 12th under the PCM subject combination.
After 12th, appear for various entrance exams all India level and state level exams.
Please note that entrance tests and your 12th score both are equally important to secure admission in engineering colleges.

You have the option to pursue either a B.Tech or a B.E Computer engineering course, which is total 4 years duration.

As a computer engineer you would be involved with both Software related and Hardware related functionalities.
Also includes dealing with networking, systems and data connections.
In short, you would be responsible for designing, developing, implementing and testing computer based hardware and software. They may also design network that connects computer systems, and work on integrating software programs with computer hardware.

Please note Programming knowledge is a must.
Though you would be the one to develop new languages for computers, but being knowledgeable about the existing ones is essential.

Mainly we find computer engineers in:

  • Telecommunications
  • Manufacturing
  • Transportation
  • Product Development

But since every industry functions on computers, other industries too require computer engineers, but job roles may vary.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck....

Dear Aspirant,

Excellent explanation by Ms. Meghna.

To add an alternative to computer engineering, I would like to say that Computer Engineering has now become like MBA. There is over supply of Computer Engineers, however this supply too is not skilled to the level the industry requires.

Apart from Computer Engineering, you may also give a thought to BSc and MSc Computer Science. Computer Science is a niche field and is the base for computer and IT engineering.

Best wishes

Dear Aspirant,

Computer science is indeed a course in trend these days. Before deciding on whether or not you would like to study Computer science, you will have to first assess your skill sets to understand if you are a fit for computer science field. I would recommend you to undergo a psychometric test on Mera career guide website, where the test will analyse your aptitude for computers and your personal and professional skill sets as well. If the psychometric report advises you to take up Computer science, gladly go ahead.

Apart from our counsellors advise on this, I would also like to advise you on trying for a three year bachelors degree too. You can do a BSc in Computer science, BCA - Bachelors in Computer applications, BSc in Information technology or Information science management. Students often neglect the three year technical degrees and instead rave about a four year Engineering degree, calling it a professional degree. Doing an Engineering at a national or state-owned well recognised University that has excellent infrastructure and research ranking is very important. I have handled students who run into very very low ranked colleges, and some even into unrecognised colleges for the sake of getting an Engineering degree and later on after graduation, they end up struggling for a job. I would sincerely advise to equally consider three year degree courses as they also lead to stable professional career in future. Doing a BSc or BCA first and then you may proceed to do an MSc or an MCA too. They have almost equal standing in line of Engineering degrees.

Top colleges for Computer science Engineering in India are:
IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Roorkee, BITS Pilani, IIT Guwahati, NIT Trichy and NIT Surathkal.

The next set of top ranked colleges are:
Netaji Subash Institute of technology, BIT Mesra, JNTU Hyderabad, ISM Dhanbad, College of Engineering Pune, Anna University-Guindy campus, NIT Rourkela, PSG Coimbatore, Thapar University, Jadavpur University, Manipal University and VIT.

Hope this helps. All the best.
