For students choosing the stream of science after they graduate from school, engineering is the end goal for most of them. The craze for engineering hasn’t died down in the years that have passed by. On the contrary, the applications from students for these courses are increasing more than ever. Even their less tech-savvy parents are busy on their phones, searching for the best B-tech colleges in Pune and in other areas for their children.

But which are the domains one should apply for? There are so many sub-disciplines under engineering students often get confused which one is the best fit for them. While some of them tend to choose a domain that aligns with their interests, others look for the ones that, in the long run, will guarantee them with a well-paid job. And there are quite a few. Let’s take a look at which ones.

1. Software engineering

In this day and age, the corporate world is filled with software used for commercial purposes, but there aren’t enough personnel to handle it. Hence, there is an incredible demand for software engineers in the market. Software engineers are responsible for the development, maintenance, testing and evaluation of the software on a regular basis. They are also expected to possess knowledge of coding and be thorough with its practical use. Coding is a technical subject and just like software engineering, can be hard to learn and is a difficult job. But then again, the hardest tasks have the sweetest rewards.

2. Electrical engineering

Electrical equipment is hard to maintain. A company’s productivity depends on the functioning of these machines. Hence, electrical engineers are expected to overlook the designing, testing, supervising and the manufacturing of electrical equipment. Electrical engineers are also expected to design electronic schematics for commercial and consumer use.

3. Mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest forms of engineering discipline. Often regarded as the hardest discipline an engineering graduate can master, there is a use of technical subjects like physics, maths, and material science. These subjects are used to design, analyze, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering is spread to various fields like computers, transport, robotics, healthcare, and military. Companies will roll over to hire a person with such high command on the technical side of the field with a very good pay package.

4. Aerospace engineering

India is making great strides in the field of space exploration. Thus, the demand for aerospace engineers have gone significantly high and it is predicted to continue that way in the future. Designing, analyzing, manufacturing and maintaining the systems that will rocket their way to space make you instantly feel proud. It is the coolest job in engineering one can fathom. The pay is great too.

5. Petroleum engineering

Petroleum engineering is a very niche field that not many pursue. However, there is no better time to pursue it than now. With a lot of employees on the verge of retirement, there will be great demand for petroleum engineers domestically and internationally. High demand and less supply will mean a handsome pay package for the ones hired.


These are currently the 5 well-paid engineering jobs in the market. If any of them interests you, start searching for the top engineering colleges in Pune and get enrolled in one.
