I have given my 10+2 exams and want to pursue engineering. I am very much interested in programming and have studied java for 2 years. Shall I opt for computer science as my branch or take the core branches like mechanical, electrical or electronics and communication as my branch and are computer courses offered along with it? What is the scope of placement for respective branches mentioned above?

Aditya, this is a doubt which comes to many students after completing 12th standard. The answer depends on what your aim is. If you want to study further after engineering, do not deviate from your subject of interest. For you, it is computers and so you might want to choose Computer Science. If you want to do a job immediately after engineering, you may choose any branch. The placements depend upon the corresponding branch but the probability of placements is same for any branch. As you said you are interested in Computer Programming, you might want to know that there are many software engineers who did not take Computer Science as their branch in Engineering. Hope you got what you need from the answer. All the Best for your upcoming years.

It would be much better if you stick to the course with which you have fascination and in that way, you would be justifying with the stream which you would undertake.
Since you have persued a course of Java indicating that you do have interest in Computer branch and so this can be taken up.
In general, the employers determine your capabilities on three counts ie your grasp with the topics which is asked on the Board of Interview, your exceptional performance in all your examinations from class ten to your BE level and lastly your general intelligence to solve the problems in a critical the Software - fields, there are numerous circumstances where aspirants other than Computer - streams, too, have been placed in the selection - panel because of their commendable performance in the interviews. The members on the Interview - board don't make any distinction between IT and non IT streams. So at present, you must strive for a better result and an attempt must be made to improve your efficiency - level in the existing branch. At the same time, you must take care that your written and spoken English is effective.

1. What you are doing? Are you completed +2Science?
2. If you have given +2Science exam, then you should prepare for JOINT ENTRANCE EXAMINATION(JEE) Main Exam or AIEEE Exam.

All engineering branches can get the job into the IT. So if you are interested in IT and didn't get the seat in CS or IT stream. In such case you can opt for the electronic or the ETC field. That should also make you eligible for the computer science jobs. Most of the students from all the engineering branches are going to appear for the campus interview.

Every branch has it's job prospects and for that reason they have the branch based placement too. I suggest focusing on the JEE or the entrance exam at first and then focus on the stream of your choice.
