Most of the students after completing their Plus Two join for engineering based on their friend’s preferences, family preferences than their own desire. After joining majority of us fail to plan for our four years in the Engineering College, hence after a time of 2 years or 3 years some students realise upcoming placements and need for a job before passing out. But by that time we have lost the areas we need to have worked or improved upon.I would say every student joining engineering should aim either to be entrepreneur, company job or for teaching, and should start preparations in first year of engineering itself.
