# Engineering colleges

The counselling rounds have begun and many have aldready decided which engineering college to go. I am going to BITS Pilani for computer science. Where are u going? This post is just for us to know who else are coming to the same college.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Hi @Karthik Kannan ! I took the advanced this year and I would prefer IIT Bombay, though I haven't decided for sure that's the only place I'd go to. I'm open to going to delhi, kanpur, etc too. According to my expected rank, I should rule out CSE,EE, and Mech (in bombay) also but I think I might get aerospace, and its a stream I'm interested in too.

I would like your opinion on what I should give more weightage to- stream or place, because I could get the other streams in some other IITs. BITSAT also went well (got 394) so should I think of it as an option too?

Mainly I asked you because I really wanted to know how it is from someone who is doing it... So tell me what you study in aerospace and how do you find it, as much as you can share(I'm unaware of its future scope,etc)

@Sudeep Salgia , @Avineil Jain , @Anish Puthuraya , @Rohan Rao , @Maharnab Mitra , @Shetaanshu Gupta , @Chandramouli Chowdhury , guys I would love to get any advice or suggestions from you too...

EDIT 1:I love sports and most extra curricular activities, thus the IITs have me pretty starstruck right now...

EDIT 2:I keep adding things... I was just saying that anything you guys can say about the iits would be helpful, right now i don't know much. Internships, exchange programs, lectures, festivals, hobby clubs anything you have to say about this would help me more than you can imagine...Thanks again!

Hi Siddharth Brahmbhatt ! In my opinion it all depends on what your priorities are. Some people are very branch conscious and are willing to pursue only the branch of their choice irrespective of the engineering college. But there are others who prefer the college over the branch. So it all depends on which group you belong to. I myself was eligible to pursue Computer Science at BITS Pilani but as I was not very interested I decided to opt for IIT instead. Btw I am not pursuing Aerospace but Engineering Physics (Dual Degree) at IIT Bombay. Since the academic structure for the first two semesters is common to all branches I can't tell you much about my branch right now. However I am sure its going to be great!

In terms of sports, culture and extra curricular activities IIT Bombay is a great place with many opportunities. So in conclusion I would like to tell you to think carefully and make the correct decision based on your interests $\ddot\smile$

Thanks :-) I was thinking about engineering physics too as an option... did you take 5 year aerospace?

I asked this coz I heard you couldn't switch from 4 yr to 5 yr courses and vice versa... any truth to that? and how practical is seeking a branch change?( i mean should i pursue some stream i'm not completely excited about thinking i'd change it? although i am a little confident that i wont do badly but still it seems risky)

EDIT: i forgot to add that I'm not branch conscious, I'd pretty much go where life takes me ;-) currently i feel it'd be anything from CSE,EE,mech,aerospace,engg physics, math & computing these are some can name right now... but i am concerned about the college i go to and as i mentioned i would prefer it to be iit bombay,delhi,madras,kanpur or kharagpur more or less.

I think only a B.tech option is available in Aerospace at IIT Bombay. Branch change is not a very easy option and only a select few enjoy the privelege. But of course with regular study and consistent performance it is not impossible.

- 5 years ago

Alright I guess I'll rule out branch change then...Thanks!

You are willing to consider every single college that I didn't. I am currently in IIT Madras. BITS was not much of an option, since I got EE at IIT itself, and I am interested in electronics. I didn't get EE in the other IITs, so I chose IITM. Seems like you aren't considering IITM...if you are, reply to this post.

- 5 years ago

Haha seems you caught me... I'll be honest I was a little apprehensive regarding Madras at first and the obvious reason is I live in Vadodara - Mumbai is the only place which doesn't seem a huge distance away...

But that was before... My teachers knocked some sense into me, saying Madras is one of the finest IITs and I even talked to Soham Parikh, who is from Vadodara too and presently studies at iit-madras.

So now I'm indeed looking at Bombay, Delhi, Madras, Kanpur, Kharagpur, maybe Rourkee. Although my first choice might be Bombay, I am open to taking admission in any of these.

So please tell me as much as you can!

Thanks a lot!!

I will probably go to IIT Madras for the Electrical Engineering Dual Degree program!
