Congratulations on your admission. Let me tell you,hardware and core branches very good choices if you want to stay connected to hardware. The placements at IIT Kharagpur are quite good. All you need to do is maintain you GPAs and do some projects and grab best internships. They will make you ready for further job opportunities.
If we talk about placements, almost all the Electronics Engineering students get places in reputed companies across India as well as abroad.
If you're in RF then most probably you'll be placed in one of the best semiconductor companies of India like Intel, Qualcomm, ST Microelectronics, Samsung Semiconductor etc. Other companies that recruit are General Electric, Siemens , Boeing etc. If you've secured an admission in this branch than be sure that you'll get one of the best jobs in the country. However, chances of getting a core RF job is less but not nil compared to other IITs. You'll get opportunities in rf domain from companies like Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, Siemens etc. Package wise the average ctc will be around 13–15 lac. Though most of the candidate will have a ctc greater than 15 lac.
I hope this helps.
If your brother has achieved a very good rank in JEE ADVANCE congratulations, you can get admission to IIT kharagpur as well as IIT delhi if your brother rank matches the cut-off marks. In case of faculties both the colleges are best as ex-IIT faculties teaches in NPTEL so no need to worry about that, also they provide live projects opportunities to students and internship facilities from 2nd year too which far better than a private college.
Hope his career would be in great hands.
I suggest you to go for NIT Trichy as it is one of the top NIT'S which is equally comparable to IIT'S and to choose ECE branch will be better for your future. If i say in terms of placements you will get easily with good amount of effort. But overall professors are nice and whether you are in any college professors are only guide you what matters is you self study to prepare yourself for the industry.
Ocean engineering and naval architect i don't think there is much scope even in IIT'S. IF You have other options like already you have NIT Trichy ECE go for that. it will surely help you in future!
best of luck!
You can either choose NSEC Kolkata & MAKAUT in house for non Engineering Speciallly for b.sc data Science & Cyber security. MAKAUT is an Top university of West Bengal. You can also go for Makaut University. Decision is yours.
Hope this information is helpful for you.
