If you want to do engineering in non-IT sector, in my view first your interest is most important to choose the branch. All engineering branches are good in its related field. In private engineering collages present time admission is very easy.
• If your interest is in automobile industry or manufacturing industries you can take mechanical engineering or Automobile engineering. There are so many PSUs or central government jobs in manufacturing fields like, power plant manufacturing industries, locomotives industries or railways.
• If your interest in telecom sector choose electrical or EC & telecommunications branch. In this fields also so many government jobs in India like, BSNL, Parshar Bharthi etc.
• And now a present day infrastructure sector is on peak position in India or abroad. There are many infrastructure companies giving opportunities for civil or architecture engineering. Also central or state government civil engineering vacancies like, CPWD,PWD,Irrigation,Railways etc. has more vacancies than above mentioned two branches but its job nature is different from above two branches because it's a field job.
So, first your interest is important first set mind in one way then select engineering branch and do, four years with full dedication.
