I keep on getting queries by Mails, Comments and Shout-box, where people ask me what course to choose for the particular rank that they have got. And most of them do ask what is their probability of getting seats in particular college.
Well this post I am writing for people to know what is more important while choosing a seat and I have been saying this in all my comment replies and mails.
When your are about to get into Engineering, what you really need to know is which college and course to be chosen.
If your ranks are very good say below 10,000 you can almost get into the top colleges in Karnataka. Otherwise you may have to compromise between the college or course and even city where you are going to study.
Some People say, what is there in College Name, Students can study any where if they will to, I agree 100% to this, they can study and get good marks too, But the problem with not getting into reputed colleges only hits during the Campus Recruitment. Choosing the college and the Course should be a wise decision.
Well but natural, more reputed the college, more chances of getting good and experienced Faculty, good facilities and infrastructure, good Placements too. And yes you would be with the best people in the environment.
The best and on demand branches are Computer Science, Electronics & Communications, Mechanical, Civil(excluding Aeronautics and Architect). In almost any college you could find these courses.
So getting into these courses is easy with almost any ranks. But when your have ranks above 20,000 you may have to make a compromise on the college.
Mechanical or Civil:
Almost every 3 out of 5 colleges provide these courses, and people who join for these courses they have a mindset to go for these courses. These two courses are to be considered as evergreen and always in a demand. But while choosing these courses be sure enough to get information about the Lab, and other facilities provided by the Colleges.
CS vs EC:
if you have an option either CS or EC, choose wisely. Look, if you are good at differentiation and integration and you like deriving formulas and stuff, like the circuits and Maths.. GO for EC, and then the fact is to get placed in an IT Company.. at the end.. or rather take CS, Learn Logic apply it on Programming and see how you can make the dumb electronic device( computer) intelligent. Well no offence to any one who is from EC, and wants to join it.
If you don’t have CS take Information Science(IS) Coz I did the same, Belive me there is no difference except some 2 or three subjects that too in higher semester differ.
Don’t be disheartened if you din’t get any seat in first round, or may be in reservation categories etc. Just push till the last round.
Don’t jump into any course to join a reputed College, unless you are very sure on it. Simply joining a course with no future is such a waste.
Most importantly listen to yourself than somebody else. Look what are your interests and what are your dreams. Don’t simply follow someone or do Engineering only because some one is forcing.
Because in my engineering life I have seen people with ups and downs, where great scholar students have failed and not so great have done great job.

All the best. Remember choice is always yours.
Will soon be writing on the procedure inside the CET Cell and my experience.
