Dear aspirant

Aeronautical Engineer
Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. I can very much understand your situation but it is necessary for us to understand why have you taken a break from my engineering. Do you or will you be able to join the engineering degree back? I advice you to join the college back or if you have some other issues then try joining in some other college that is happy to admit you in third year engineering. I can definitely advice you on some strategies that you may do to compensate this one year back. As you have not completed a basic degree yet, you cannot definitely enrol into a Pg Diploma course as a basic degree is the eligibility for admission. You can try for two best strategies

1. Try doing a one year diploma course that accepts 12th level class as a minimum eligibility qualification.
You can do a one year diploma related to aeronautical or even business and entrepreneurship as you are also interested in that. Try for courses with Tasmac, they should have a one year diploma. You can also approach GEMS Bschool. They have many diploma or or even degree level programs and they are definitely okay with +2 level qualification itself. You can also do some courses online in business and entrepreneurship. Make sure you only choose to study one year course. You can also enrol in some certificate course in aeronautical engineering. Try to make best use of this one year.

2. Do any internships or mini projects in a company.
There are many companies that offer internships in aeronautical engineering for college going students. Try approaching such companies to get such internships. You can also approach any college seniors to design any simulators in aeronautical thing. It only requires a computer and certain technical knowledge. Create such mini projects and take small photos and attach them on your resume. If you cannot find internships in aeronautical engineering, then you can try working in some consultancies like HR analyst or Marketing analyst. You can also work in administration roles. Try earning money in this one year to make your financial position stable.

Do not feel depressed and sit at home. Try doing something useful and make effective use of this year. This will reflect very positively on your resume and your prospective recruiters will definitely be impressed with you.
