The term “engineering” basically means making things happen. It is all about designing and production of user services and products.
Engineering is converting scientific knowledge to technology and technology to successful innovation. There is a lot of demand of engineers everywhere. Engineers find exciting careers in almost all fields of work. Engineering helps you convert your ideas into reality, make money, travel countries, develop products, and much more.
There are various branches of engineering and few of the common ones include:
- computer science engineering
- mechanical engineering
- civil engineering
- chemical engineering
- electrical engineering
- electronics and communication engineering
- bio-medical engineering
Number of colleges is there that offer these course and one of the prominent college is NIT Agartala Engineering College. It is a technology-oriented, higher educational institute established by Ministry of Human Resource Development. This college came into existence in the year 1965 and in 2006 it was declared as NIT (National Institute of Technology). Admission to NIT Agartala is through Joint Entrance Examination. The courses offered here include Computer Science, Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, Bio-medical, Electronics and Communication, Transportation, etc.
Let us talk about few of the NIT Agartala Engineering courses that are available to select from:
Mechanical engineering – This is 2nd oldest engineering discipline as well as one among the oldest. This branch of engineering involves designs of operation, maintenance, and structures of mechanical systems. Engineers studying mechanical engineering will be designing mechanical pencils, staplers, fax machines, automobiles, trucks, tractors for production of food, grinders, milling machines, and several such products and devices. They also design as well as operate power plants that are related with economical combustion of different fuels, conversion of energy obtained from heat into mechanical energy and usage of mechanical energy for performing useful tasks. This course offers solid foundation for all professional engineering practices. It helps students develop the ability of applying scientific principles in design and analysis especially of energy and mechanical conversion systems. Engineers will be challenged with problems related to designing in maximum courses that offer them opportunity to develop their creative skills for solving actual world problems. The course will teach them about manufacturing and operation of pumps, machine tools, different mass production techniques, compressions, prime movers, pumps, and various other tools. As part of projects, students pursuing this course will be asked to take part in various programs that are held from time to time basis so as to enhance their skills as well as knowledge in wide range of issues in field of Mechanics.
Electrical engineering – This engineering course deals with power and power control, instrumentation processing, usage of electrical power, distribution and generation of power, processing formation in fields of control and communication system, industrial electronics, instrumentation, electronic computer, and many others. Post completion of the course, wide range of employment opportunities exists in enterprise and public sectors dealing with designing, manufacturing, and application of different equipment and electronic devices, television and radio, navigational and radar aids, communication system, process control, computer software and hardware, and so on. Electrical engineering course will emphasis on deep understanding of different electrical networks, electrical energy converters, electromagnetic field theory, electrical energy distribution, and much more. Further the course encompasses various systems and devices that are operating electrically. Engineers would be involved integrally with distribution, electromechanical use, and generation of electric power. They will be designing as well as producing general electronics circuits, solid-state components like computer chips and integrated circuits. As electrical energy demand is increasing, especially in development of video and audio communication systems, and automation, electrical engineers will find great opportunities to work.
Civil engineering – This is among the best engineering courses available. It has abundance of future scope in construction and designing fields especially for roads, railways, bridges, etc. This course teaches civil engineering students to be creative as they will be responsible for buildings and construction. They have great scope for future because of increase in demand of civil engineers both in government and private sectors. Post completion of this course, students can opt for M. Tech and then Phd courses as well. For pursuing this course from NIT Agartala, one requires qualifying entrance exam. They should be 12th passed with minimum 60% marks obtained in Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Post this course; you’ll be placed in highly reputed firms with salary package of minimum of 30k per month. One can become a lecturer or associate professor after completing civil engineering course if one is interested in teaching field. Civil engineers find opportunities in private sectors that pay them good money. Their job profiles can be that of a researcher, chief engineer, project manager, division head, supervisory engineer, senior engineer, Director of public works, teacher, professor, independent consultant and so on.
Chemical engineering Course – This course deals with designing, installation as well as maintenance of large-scale process in plants dealing with chemical pharmaceuticals, allied, chemical, and oil industries. It covers different chemical technology fields in petrochemical plants, mineral based industries, synthetic fibres, and petroleum refining plants as well. Here you will be taught different technical activity phases in which chemistry knowledge in addition to other sciences like biology, computer science, physics, and mathematics is also used for solving problems. Some of the problems include health, energy, food, environment, materials, shelter, and clothing. Focus of the course will be on Polymer technology, polymer synthesis, industrial chemistry, polymer processing, and polymer testing, among many others. Here you have few other options like fertilizer technology, petroleum, food and agriculture products, refining, synthetic fibres, mineral based, coal industries, environmental pollution control, designing of designs, processes, and methods for improvement, and lots more. There is range of opportunities for chemical engineers in both private and public fields in control and production of process plants and chemicals, designing, fabrication, development, and employment in argo-food industries as well. One can go for higher education like master of technology and PhD as well. The salary package offered for these courses is pretty high and scholarships for further studies are also available.
