Every year over a lakh students attend the JEE – an entrance test for admissions to engineering courses offered at premier Indian institutes. While it is a dream of many students to become an engineer after Class 12, not many of them get into the details when choosing a stream or specialization for their education in Bachelor of Technology program. Engineering is a field of study that deals with science and technology and technology, as you all know, is a dynamic area where there is innovation every second. Living in a world where technology is continuously transforming, a question may naturally arise in you when picking a course. Is your engineering degree relevant to the current technology world? The question that follows, what is that engineering program which has great scope as of now?
In this write-up we will introduce you to few new fields of engineering study that are becoming popular in recent times. These engineering streams are related to new technology and offer promising career prospects. Read-on to find out.
There was a time when system administrators used to plan, design and manage the networks and systems within organizations. With changing times, organizations have moved to cloud and with the use of the internet, they are exposed to serious threats of data security breach. Cyber security or protecting systems and networks from illegal access of the third party is taking the central stage in organizations that are highly dependent on their IT infrastructure for their business. Information security, is more or less becoming a culture of good IT practices organizations should follow to do well in the business. If you are someone who has great curiosity, an out-of-the-box thinking, an eye for detail and uncompromising stance for accuracy, then a career in Cybersecurity domain may be suitable for you. Information security is offered as a specialization with B.Tech programs offered in some of the universities in India. B.Tech program of Srinivas University and B.Tech program of Jain University which come with Information Security as a specialization seem promising. The project work/internship opportunities, the choice of subjects and the seminars and workshops can all prepare students well.
When you are looking for a B.Tech course with great scope, you will obviously have to plan for a program that can not only get you a job but also help you build a career. “Data is the new fuel,” is a saying. It is an asset that is helping businesses understand their customers better. Data is used effectively in improving the returns from marketing campaigns. Data is helping organizations improve consumer experience. But how is it done? Data science is the science of extracting valuable insights from huge volumes of data. Companies are increasingly relying on data science to improve their performance. As a result, data science or Big Data is a $ 3.03 billion industry in India as of 2019 and it is expected to double by 2025.
There are numerous online courses offered by various education firms that are training professionals in data science. But do you know, you can take up Data Science as a specialization at the engineering level?
Jain University and Ajeenkya DY Patil University are two leading Indian universities offering B.Tech programs specializing in Data Science domain. The placements at Ajeenkya DY Patil University and Jain University are great with many top companies recruiting students from the university in big numbers every year.
In the age of digital economy where both information and money is transacted online, transparency, security and reliability are critical for the success of the overall system of exchange. BlockChain is one technology that promises all the three along with many other benefits. From Bill Gates to Jack Ma and from Elon Musk to John McAfee, bigwigs from the IT industry have all shown their interest in this new technology because of its potential and relevance to the current business world.
BlockChain technology is the technology where information related to a transaction is stored in growing chain of blocks, each of them secured through a cryptographic layer. Individuals can easily access and view the information in the chain while modification or corruption is not possible.
BlockChain is already one of the most sought after skills in the IT industry as of 2020, according to a report from LinkedIn. The technology requires knowledge of programming languages, virtualization, cryptography, database security and exposure to new concepts.
Some leading universities in the country have designed programs that focus on this new technology. Ajeenkya DY Patil University, Pune and GD Goenka University one of the leading B.Tech colleges in Haryana offer programs specializing in BlockChain. The 4 year B.Tech programs from both Universities have been recognized and they include all subjects which develop strong foundational knowledge in computer science. Apart from the routine subjects, you get better industry exposure from projects and seminars.
Deciding on the specialization / course for under graduation after Class 12 can define your future. Make sure the decision is right and to the best of your knowledge.
