i am studying diploma in electrical and electronics engineering so after completing it can i join medical college and what is the process for joined the course

Ayush 5th Feb, 2021

Hello Candidate,

If you are very much interested in pursuing a career in medical, then there is a way that you can still join Medical College after graduating from an engineering degree.

But at first, should have passed your class 12th examination with compulsory Biology subject, and moreover your age should not be over 25 years if you belong from general category, and not over 30 years if you belong from a reserved category for appearing in the NEET examinations.

Hope this information helps you!!

shubham 23rd Dec, 2020

Hello,

As you have mentioned you have done diploma in electronics and communication it will be best if you pursue bachelors in same branch as you have basic knowledge of the subject. But talking about future scope it will be usefull if you try computer science or information technology.

Cs and It have gained importance due to pandemic as everything has moved to digital

Here are few colleges which are best for these courses

Delhi technological university

Jamia millia islamia university

IIT delhi

IIIT delhi

Manipal university

Which course will give me better results in future - Electrical and Electronics Engineering or Electrical and Communication Engineering???

Abir Gayen 12th Dec, 2020

Hi Aspirant,

Electrical and Communication Engineering has a much better future ahead since in India there is a lot of telecommunication systems growing overall and the placements are also decent in this field.If you even study from an average B tech college you get fair placements.If you pass out from top institutes then there are high chances that you get hired by telecommunication companies like jio,airtel etc.Moreover you can also sit in Software companies interview which is quite beneficial.So it is best to go for Electronics and communication engineering.

All the best.
