What is Industry 4.0 all about? To put it simply. It is a marriage of the highly-skilled workers with digital technologies of the current age. Digitisation processes are rampant.
Cultivating engineers as early as junior high school is the way to impress upon the students the merits of engineering. For this to happen, the approach to the content-heavy theory only curriculum needs to be changed. Also, the students need to be exposed to the engineering marvels around them.
Students aiming for white-collar careers can set goals as early as high school. A combination of planning, preparation, and hard work will guide them to achieve their dream job, irrespective of the sector, says young Business Analyst Agastya Ramesh.
Chemical engineering hasn't lost its appeal. Apart from the traditional chemical-centric industries such as petroleum and pharmaceuticals, chemical engineers are not required in various other sectors including textiles, plastics, food and even biomedical sectors.
Computer engineering combines computer science and electrical engineering to design and develop computers and computer-based systems. Today it is the foundation for digital technology, computer networking and other computer-based systems.
Agricultural Engineering deals with the study of agricultural food grain production and processing. It involves understanding of concepts from civil, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering, as well as the technological aspects of agricultural principles.
Choosing an engineering stream to study should not be based on what will be most lucrative, but which one will use your interests and aptitude the best. So go for combinations that will hold your interest in the long run than the immediate placement after the four-year course.
