First thing, don't get influenced by the thoughts of your friends or family members. Think for yourself to see what you are interested on. People will obviously ask you to choose Engineering or any equivalent degree. But that is not the right approach. If you are interested in doing something different, there are many places and many courses available for that. Every single people who take Engineering as their course is not always using that throughout their life.
If you are passionate about something different go for it. Fashion designing, photography, Zoology related courses, Botanical Science etc are something that you can think off. I will give you some personal experience on this. After 12th I was asked to join Engineering and I completed my degree and now working in a company. All that is fine but I was always interested in medicine. If I had taken a right decision and gone to Ayurveda or Siddha, I feel that my life would have been more peaceful than before.
Another experience is from my friends. My friends completed engineering. And that too in costliest colleges in Tamilnadu. Most of them changed their career to something else. One guy moved to Finance, another moved to manufacturing industry, another opened up a cloth shop of his own. So for all these guys Engineering is utter waste. So think wisely and proceed.
Thanks and Regards,
