Thanks for the great info and putting everything in detail. I want to do engineering after completing my 12th so I keep looking for such informative articles to enhance my knowledge about the career that I want to pursue. A few of my seniors have opted for B.

I have heard its a good university and the faculty and infrastructure is also commendable. i would like to suggest this university for students wanting to make a career in this field.

Devik Aggarwal,

Very great to students who are actually confused what to do after 12th!! I would only like to add to this some new courses that are run by very few universities in India.. Like Petroleum engineering, Automotive Design engineering, Engg. in Oil and Gas and Sports Mgmt.. these are some of the programs that are in huge demand world wide... as there is no scope left in traditional courses so I would advise to you check them out for better scope in future.
