Engineering, as a concept, has existed since ancient times. We have devised basic inventions such as the pulley, lever, wheel since earliest days of mankind. Each of these inventions is consistent with the modern definition of engineering, exploiting basic mechanical principles to develop useful tools and objects. Engineering as a subject is a discipline and profession of applying technical and scientific knowledge, utilizing natural laws and physical resources in order to design and implement materials, structures, machines, devices, systems, and processes that safely aim a desired objective which meets a specified criteria.

In today’s scenario engineering is no longer limited to the classic division of civil, mechanical or electrical engineering, but offer a variety of other fields to master in. Now engineers probably have a wider choice to work, and greater variety of jobs, than is possible in any other profession. This is because there is vast scope for engineers in areas such as automobile, thermal engineering, vacuum technology, polymer technology, communication and computers to name a few. Infact, multi-disciplinary degrees in engineering and otherwise are becoming more common, for example - EECS (Electical Engineering and Computer Science), CS & IT (Computer Science and Information Technology), Biotechnology (involves Biology, Chemistry, Electronics and related) etc.

Lakhs of aspiring students work hard to get into engineering colleges including the likes of IITs, NITs (earlier RECs), State Engineering Colleges etc. by competing in the entrances exam’s like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, CET, ComedK etc. Although a tough ask but with increase in the range of field it has become little easier than earlier. Today, one can join any of the following given several branches of engineering to use his/her potential to maximum...
