As the power and infrastructure sectors will be on a growth trajectory for another decade, it make more sense to opt for Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) course, said A. Jayaprakash Gandhi, career consultant
Speaking at the fourth edition of The Hindu Career Counselling programme held at the Adhiyamaan College of Engineering here, he told students awaiting Plus-Two results that the EEE, civil engineering courses would have an edge over ECE and mechanical engineering.
He asked students to choose a course keeping in mind the future developments and not past records. Opportunities were bright in the electrical energy field for the next decade, and the next best options were infrastructure and agriculture sectors.
Mr. Gandhi suggested that the students select the best college for best placement. “Where you study and how you study is more important than what you study, but you should be careful in selecting the college.’’
Opportunities were aplenty in all the fields provided the students showed interest in new courses that were introduced by colleges.
As engineering colleges were mushrooming in the State, it was for the students to opt the best institution and the course.
Science students, not qualifying for engineering or medicine, should consider options such as economics or English literature, for which the scope was bright.
