In India, BE and B.Tech. programs are the most well known and sought after courses, promising immense growth and success. According to a survey conducted by the famous British media house, the country is contributing hugely towards cutting down the gender gap in engineering arena by providing equal opportunity. This shows that many students opt to be an engineer in India and the numbers are increasing exponentially every year.

With all of these facts, we are now aware of the need for an engineering workforce for the nation’s growth. If we talk about the engineering programs such as Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, they are gaining ground with prestigious engineering institutions likeTI or Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology.

Usually, when students in India join engineering, they are clueless about what they are going to learn and achieve in that particular specialization. The central education system in India offers only basic knowledge about science but gives no clue about the way forward. This results in students opting for any engineering branch available to them based on their scores in JEE or AISSCE. Read about JEE Main Exam 

Institutes like TI ensures that students who choose laggard programmes either by interest or necessity get the right guidance towards getting the best placements. There are a lot of colleges that offer engineering in laggard programmes but some colleges in Punjab are reaping the benefits of legacy and continuous hard work to provide engineering aspirants with the best opportunities.

Before making the final choice 

Engineering aspirants must assure that the chosen program is in sync with their acumen and inclination. It does not matter whether it is a hot selling property like computer science engineering or traditional engineering branches like civil or mechanical.

Also, do not fall for the star rating and big names. When choosing the relevant branch of engineering, consider the particulars like:

  • Department faculty,
  • Kind of training and industrial visits they organise,
  • What is the current core placements and
  • How many incubations they have launched in the recent few years.

For example, laggard programmes like mechanical engineering do not have enough core placements in India. But in recent times, enough engineers from MIT, IITs are moving to villages, making agricultural tools that are supporting agricultural economies. Yet the numbers are few as all reputed names are just focussed towards getting students placed in big MNCs and the corporate world. In technical understanding, no engineering programme is a laggard if colleges can find its right applications in the modern world.

What TIET programs behold? 

The so-called laggard programmes at TI gives you the right opportunity as the college has a legacy of 60 years of teaching engineering to generations. This very fact makes them unique for industry and entrepreneurship. Some of them get enrolled in civil services afterward and serve society by producing disruptive solutions for the people of the country.

Many of them who are dedicated to the country go on to serve in military engineering services and build roads, bridges, and structure in rough terrain where the enemy can’t expect a proper infrastructure. TI also provides its students with the experience of International Engineering Programme to facilitate global exposure. Last year, four students of mechanical engineering got placed at KPMG after attending the University of Malta for a credit transfer.

According to me, placements at Thapar University are quite good considering if you are not getting computer science here you won't be getting it in any NITs so always choose Thapar if money is not a constraint and if it chooses some NIT you are getting and save money for your Masters because ultimately you have to do it. For non-core, we have companies like JP Morgan Chase, Deloitte, ZS Consulting, Futures First, Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC, etc to name a few which offer lucrative packages to the students starting from 8lpa going up till 15lpa. Companies having packages above 15lpa are mainly Microsoft, De Shaw, Walmart, Works Experience, Proptiger, Myntra, Hikari Tsushin etc.
