Which course in btech is better among mechanical and ECE in the view of placement and scope according to future and current state
I think mechanical is it correct
Both the branches are very good. They have their own importance.
If you go with ECE then you will get the job easily.
But in my opinion Mechanical engineering is better than Electronics Engineering.
There are lots of job in private sector as well as government sector in Mechanical engineering but there are almost zero government job for ECE.
The ECE job is not secure. The IT sector company can fired you without any region and also they work from you very hard and do not pay you the deserving salary.
But all depends on your interest. So i suggest you to go with your interested branch.
There are two important things that you should consider while choosing a branch.
i) Interest: If you are too much into cars, machines and stuff then he should go for Mechanical Engineering, if you are not that specific about it then you can go for ECE. Electronics and Communication branch has got wider options and easier life compared to Mechanical Engineers. I have my mechanical friends who are placed in good companies earning a little less than EC E guys but sweating a lot more than ECE people and also the company location is in remote places and the job is more demanding and hectic.
ii) strengths and future: One most important thing that slips off everybody’s head is that, finally for placements what all it takes? Is it how much you have scored or how much yow know or your soft skills what you have developed during these four years?
As far as your aggregate score, it should be more than the cut off of the companies, these days its around 8/10 (CGPA) for all engineering branches.
Now if you are in mech and you want to get into best of the best companies then you definitely need good management skills and it doesn’t matter how sound you are technically. This soft skill plays a crucial role in placements, I have seen people who are toppers in the department but got placed after average scorers because of poor management skills.
But in ECE, companies are not so much specific about management skills, all they ask for is how good you are in your subjects.
Regarding future, if he is going to go for MS or M.Tech then he should choose the branch by his interest and if he is going MBA he may go for ECE as ECE is considered as a tougher branch to get into when compared to Mechanical Engineering.
