Engineering is a discipline, art and profession that acquires and applies the knowledge of technical, scientific and mathematics for designing and implementing materials, machines, structures, devices, systems, and processes. Now-a-days there are so many types of engineering and it is very tough for everyone to select the perfect stream for himself. An individual should select the engineering branch as per his personal interests and hobbies. Here, I am providing a list of various engineering branches that may help you in taking the decision.

Chemical Engineering
Chemical engineering deals with the application of physical science for instance, chemistry and physics with mathematics for processing the converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. After completing engineering education on chemical engineering, the fresh graduate can have various career options such as corrosion protection, waste management, food processing, coal preparation, explosives manufacturing, biotechnology, environmental control etc.

Electrical Engineering
Electrical Engineering, one of the most dynamic and diverse branch of engineering, specially deals with the power generation, conversion, transmission, distribution and usage of electrical power and its control etc. As an electrical engineer, a person can find employment in various areas like nuclear power plants, thermal power plants, hydroelectric power plants etc.

Computer Engineering
If you have keen interest in computers and also want to explore about it from hardware to software, from programming to designing, then you should join computer engineering program from Top Engineering colleges. Computer engineering deals with algorithm processes that describe and transform the information. After studying, a student can become computer scientist, quality assurance specialist, software developer, system analyst, robotics technology specialist and much more.

Mechanical Engineering
In mechanical engineering, it involves with the application of physics principles for the analysis, designing, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. This branch of engineering is one of the most popular degrees among the students. It normally deals with analysing, designing and maintaining mechanical systems.

Civil Engineering
In Civil Engineering, we study the designing, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally available environment. This type of engineering covers the design, construction and maintenance of essential state of the art infrastructure for instance, roads, bridges, dams, canals, buildings etc. After pursuing civil engineering program, an individual can find employment in the Government departments, private and public sector undertakings and research and teaching institutions etc.
