5 best engineering branches for girls in 2022

In this article let’s take a look at 5 best engineering courses for girls in detail.

Both male and female can pursue every engineering branch freely but there are few engineering branches where female can be dominant and can have better chances of successful compared to male and we are going to look at those in detail in this article.

So without further ado let’s get started.

5 Best engineering branches for girls

Computer science & information technology

Computer science and information technology is one of the best engineering branches you can choose especially for girls who want to have a high paying job with minimal physical energy and

you do not need to work in the field and factories rather you can work from home as well & IT companies have better facilities & HR policies including adequate maternity leave and the option to take a sabbatical.

Computer Science Engineering (CSE) is an academic programme which integrates the field of Computer Engineering and Computer Science.

The topics you learn are related to computation, algorithms, programming languages, program design, computer software, computer hardware, etc which you will learn in the computer science and information technology branch.

Although there is a slight difference between computer science and information technology which is that computer science is more related to programming and

developing programs and more of theoretical stuff and information technology is related to application of programs and softwares in the real world, computer science refers to designing and building computers and computer programs.

Information technology, on the other hand, refers to maintaining and troubleshooting those computers and their networks, systems, and databases to ensure they run smoothly.

After you complete your under graduation you can also consider doing post graduation like MBA or Ms or Mtech and also prepare for GATE exam at the same time

you can also prepare for placement and get different jobs like computer programmer, web developer, data scientist, research analyst, College professor, full stack web developer, app developer, etc

If you can develop good skills and knowledge in the field then you do not have to move to foreign countries for better job opportunity but you can get job in your own country itself like India which is becoming a tech and IT hub because we have a huge percentage of people who have internet access.

According to BLS the average job growth of computer science engineer is going to grow by 22% between 2020 to 2030 in America.

There are many companies with hire computer science engineers such as Google Microsoft Adobe Qualcomm LinkedIn TCS Amazon, Infosys Wipro, etc

The average salary of a computer science engineer is around 500000 rupees per annum and the salary will depend upon different factors like

which company hired you, what is your job and profession and from which college you have graduated, also upon your skill set and experience.

Apart from working as an employee you can also work as a freelancer for companies like Google and other top companies as a web developer and app developer on platforms like upwork and Guru.

Electrical & electronics engineering

Electrical and electronical engineering is another good branch you can choose for girls.

An electrical & electronics engineer designs, develops and maintains the electrical, electronics and computer control system to the required specifications, and focusing on economy, reliability, safety, sustainability and quality.

Telecom industries, transportation network, IT industries, airplane & airspace manufacturing industries, and production and the distribution of power are some of the specific fields of career development.

You can also get a job in PSU sector through GATE exam and get a government job in companies like BDL, NTPC, ONGC, PGCIL, HAL DRDO, midhani, etc

You can also work for many National and international companies like Google, Microsoft, Samsung, apple and which for technology company which creates devices and electronic substances.

The average salary of electrical engineer is around 5 lakh rupees per annum and the salary will depend upon your experience and the company which recruited you.

Chemical engineering

Chemical engineering is another good engineering branch for girls.

Chemical engineering is a certain type of engineering which deals with the study of operation and design of chemical plants as well as methods of improving production.

Chemical engineers develop economical commercial processes to convert raw material into useful products.

Chemical engineers develop economical commercial processes to convert raw material into useful products.

Chemical engineering uses principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics to efficiently use, produce, design, transport and transform energy and materials.

The work of chemical engineers can range from the utilization of nanotechnology and nanomaterials in the laboratory to large-scale industrial processes that convert chemicals, raw materials, living cells, microorganisms, and energy into useful forms and products.

Chemical engineers can work for many PSU companies like BDL, NTPC, ONGC, PGCIL, indian oil corporation, Bharat petroleum, and many more.

And you can work for many private companies  and work in laboratories to create products.

According to pay scale the average salary of chemical engineer is around 5 lakh rupees per annum.

Biomedical engineering

Biomedical engineering is the application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering to biology and medicine.

It integrates electrical, mechanical, chemical and life science principles in the development of new healthcare technologies and systems, as well as in providing a better understanding of the mechanisms of human life.

Biomedical engineers focus on advances in technology and medicine to develop new devices and equipment for improving human health. For example, they might design software to run medical equipment or computer simulations to test new drug therapies

This is engineering branch is more beneficial to women compared to men because they tend to have more Helping Nature & tend to connect medical and biological sciences properly.

While still it is developing, the impact and advantages of this biomedical engineering are very much visible in the healthcare sector through MRIs, EEGs, biomedical chips, biocompatible prosthesis.

Many of the medical devices that we use in our day-today-life like BP monitor, blood-sugar monitor and others are also a result of rapid development of technology in Biomedical engineering.

There are many popular companies which hire biomedical engineers like appollo hospitals, etc

According to pay scale the average salary of a biomedical engineering is around 4 lakh rupees per annum.

Aerospace engineering

Last but not least aerospace engineering is also a good career option for girls.

Aerospace Engineering is a branch of Engineering that provides skills and knowledge to design, manufacture and maintain spacecrafts, aircrafts, missiles and weapons systems.

A large part of Aerospace Engineering consists of Mechanical Engineering covering a wide range of topics, including computer application, structures, mathematics, physics, drafting, electricity, robotics, aeronautics etc.

It also covers two aspects of engineering, namely Aeronautical Engineering and Astronomical Engineering.

After you complete your aerospace engineering you can get a job in PSU sector like ISRO, DRDO, BDL, BHEL, and you can work in defence forces.

According to pay scale the average salary of aerospace engineer is around 9 lakh rupees per annum
