Best Engineering Courses and Branches

Nagpur News: Choosing a good career is very important. The time when we are supposed to choose our career/course to do is after passing the 12th standard. This is where your school life ends. You start a new chapter in your life- college life! It is up to you to select the path. This article will just describe you about various courses that you can do after your school life (12th science). In the end, the choice is yours. You have to decide your own path!

Earlier, there used to be less courses on the offering. Students had less choice. Science students opted for BSc, Engineering or Medicine. Further, the courses offered in the above programs were basic and traditional. Let me give you an example- earlier, engineering was all about Electrical, Mechanical, Civil and Chemical. Later with time, trades like IT, EC, Plastic Engineering etc were added.

Now, there are so many courses on the offering that students don’t even know about many of them! So, this article will help you to know more about many ‘unknown’ courses that you can do after 12th science!


First of all, let us concentrate on Engineering:
