Engineering branches

Posted by

Engineering has an array of branches to choose from. Usually, students tend to focus more at acing the entrance examination of the engineering institutes than deciding on the specialization in the engineering stream. Here’s a low down on various engineering branches offered at the best technical schools of India that will help you decide your next career move
