Choice of stream to begin with engineering

Hello sir, I have passed my 12th exam. Now I want to begin with engineering I have scored satisfactory marks in engineering entrance exam. I am confused in choosing the stream between mechanical engineering and electronics engineering. People say identify your interest. But I like both the streams. I am confused between these two. Which is better in terms of all aspects?

Hello My Dear Engineering Career Aspirant,

Choosing between mechanical and electronics is not so easy especially when you like both. People are right when they say that identify your interest to arrive at a decision. Glad that you got the required marks in the engineering entrance exam.

According to me and my years of career counselling experience, I feel you should gofor mechanical engineering rather than electronics. Electronics engineering has lost its glory in today's IT age. Apart from Mechanical you may also consider Computer or IT engineering.

The best way is definitely to identify your interest, but actually thats not so easy to do for every body and at times students take wrong decisions, since not every time your inner voice says the right thing.

I would strongly suggest you to take the "Engineering Branch Suggestor" Psychometric Test available from This psychometric test will exactly identify your true potential, interests, likings, passion areas and apitude and attitude.

Selecting a branch especially when you are confused between two options through the method of psychometric test, which is scientific and world proven and famous, will give you the exact direction for your career.

All the Best!
