Engineering is a very popular and in demand course, but the fact that every year millions of students try to clear the competitive exams, and for the rat race it has become, it is not necessary for you to become a part of this race. If you don’t want to be just another goat in the herd, you don’t need to be. In fact, there are a hell lot of career options one can pursue after completing their senior secondary education with PCM (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics).

I would try to include as much as courses I can, but my apologies if I miss some. Now buck yourself up, because the number of courses is going to boggle your mind.

BCA (Bachelor of Computer Applications)

If you are interested in computers and have good problem-solving skills but don’t want to go for engineering, you may want to choose this 3-year course. There are great colleges in India which offer this course, and you may consider it as the non-B.Tech degree in Computer Science. However, you get to learn a lot about computers, both in hardware and software and have the option to go for further studies and do a Master’s course. A lot of IT companies hire BCA students, so job opportunities are vast. And who knows, you may even be able to land a job on Google!

The best colleges in India that offer this course are

  • Christ University, Bengaluru
  • SRM University, Chennai
  • Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research, Pune

B.Arch. (Bachelor of Architecture)

If you have ever wondered how buildings are built and want to become an architect, this is the course for you. Career opportunities are vast in this course and you can even get a chance with the top names in the country. However, it is a long course as its duration is 5 years, but if it suits you, go for it.

Some colleges offering this course are

  • School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi
  • Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
  • Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee
  • Jadavpur University, Kolkata

Merchant Navy

For someone who loves to travel, this may be the perfect course. If you don’t have a problem in staying away at sea for long periods of time and have a good eyesight and a healthy body, don’t hesitate to take this 3-year long course. Also, this is one of the highest paying jobs (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a fat paycheck). Keep your bags packed and travel around the world!

Commercial Pilot Training
If ships and sea aren’t your things, you can also go for training to fly commercial planes, and you can aim for the sky, literally! However, the training procedure is very rigorous and you need to have a very good eyesight and physique. Apart from that, the training is expensive too.

Some of the institutes are as follows

  • The Bombay Flying Club, Mumbai
  • Government Aviation Training Institute, New Delhi
  • Rajiv Gandhi Academy for Aviation Technology, Kerala
