I am doing BTech in Mechanical Engineering. In which areas can I specialise? Which areas are in demand?
Do not choose an area of study based on what is in demand. Decide based on your interests and aptitude. First, decide if you wish to pursue further studies in the technical or management area. Areas such as Production, Automobile and Industrial Engineering are logical choices for you.Alternatively, in management, areas such as Production and Operations Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, are available, to name a few.
I’m studying Commerce with Informatics Practices (IP) in Class XII. I’m good at IP practicals though I lag in theory. Please advise ongraduate programmes. Is Bachelor’s in Computer Application (BCA) a good option? I like Management studies too.
For a commerce student who is interested in Management Studies, the best option would be to do a graduate programme in Management Studies. Your options include Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Bachelor’s in Management Studies from Mumbai University, among others. You must also do Master’s in Management. However if Computers are a definite area of interest, then BCA followed by MCA or an MBA with IT is an ideal option. Since you seem confused, meet a career counsellor who could help you with aptitude testing.
