Wow... that's a very good thinking. You wish to save your parents their money, and they wish that you become an engineer.

Firstly why have you chosen modeling as your career.
Is it purely based on the glamour world or you trying to run away from studies.

Probably your parent have seen your potential and wish you get settled in the industry with study knowledge.

Both the fields require immense struggle.
Though in media line, you need a godfather, and its an ultimate struggle.
My only suggestion is undergo an Aptitude tests,identify your strengths and then choose a career.
It will not only save time but also money.
One more thing is no problem if you wish to still pursue modeling, but before that take a look into your physique, money and your fitness.
At the same time, my advise is that its a time limited profession. The media line is always in hunt for new faces and youngsters. So a models chapter closes down somewhat sooner or later.
So advisable is first get a degree then pursue your dream as a model along with your studies.
You could opt for ARTS, whereby you would have more time for your passion.Then you could opt for BMM,since its related to media.

For you to convince your parent,it would be good if you undergo an Aptitude tests and talk in terms of studies and not just giving it up completely.

Choose wisely.
Wish you all the best....
