I have completed my +2 level. Since I am from Science faculty, I am unknown about engineering degrees. Which engineering degree has best scope in Nepal as well as abroad ( mostly USA) Civil engineering, architectural engineering or computer engineering? And also Which one is better in terms of scope, job orientation & salary: IT or computer engineering. What are the various choices in the Engineering field and which one is most easy to get admission and pass? Please suggest me. I am in dilemma right now. Hoping your suggestions 🙂Share with Friends (Earn 10SnCoins as gift)July 1, 2017 at 4:36 pm #182547
Engineering is one of the most secured career option. As for our country, as most of the development activities are to be carried out, there is lots of opportunity for engineers. In Nepal the popular form of engineering are civil, electrical, computer, electronics, mechanical and architecture. Actually it depends on your interest which field you want to pursue as every branch have opportunities. But comparatively, among them all, computer engineering and civil engineering are now the most sought out profession in Nepal. Nepal has to see a lot of infrastructural development in the coming decade, roads, bridges, buildings, and highways are to be built. This means civil engineers will be in high demand. Civil engineers can find job on construction projects, public service, transportation, building and water resource design. Likewise, the rapid growth of information technology and use of computer science in each and every field shows that computer engineering is one profession with lots of scope. Nepal needs a large number of dedicated engineers for the development of the country. In general there is opportunity in every field, so you can choose any field of engineering of your interest. As for USA, there are wider job prospects for computer, electrical, nuclear chemical and even mining engineering. Among them all, the average annual salary of computer engineering is more than others. If you want to make career abroad, it is better to study there itself. There are lesser chances for the graduates from Nepal to get engineering jobs in USA.
Computer engineering has the major focus on the software, general design, creation and maintenance of system as well as application software whereas IT professionals perform task relating to processing, storing and communication of information through computers. IT and computer engineering are two different field. As both of these fields are technical you need to have good knowledge and expertise of the technical aspects, to excel in them. However, most students prefer computer engineering to IT in terms of wider job options and salary.July 18, 2017 at 12:48 pm #189147
Thank you soo much 🙂 It helps me alotJuly 20, 2017 at 2:25 pm #190139
I don’t think the last paragraphs is sufficient to get yourself convinced, because i think it would be a bit irrelevant to depict IT’s major focused topics as just the aforementioned terms. Would you please feel free to elaborate the difference in IT and computer engineering’s major focuses and other aspects?May 26, 2018 at 9:33 am #274683
Engineering is among the top choice of students who have completed intermediate level. With the increment of institutions and colleges providing engineering courses in Nepal, the number of students willing to enroll in the program is also increasing.
Nepal is a developing country, thus the developing activities are increasing which has opens doors for a number of job opportunities for the engineering graduates. Graduate with this degree can find a job in government, public or private sector construction companies, etc. Grads can work as an agricultural engineer, automotive engineer, a computer engineer, chemical engineer, drafting and design engineer, civil engineer, geological engineer, electrical engineer, geological engineer, software engineer, petroleum engineer and mechanical engineer.
