Engineering at Manipal University Jaipur?

Engineering these days is such a hullabaloo among parents, teachers, counselors and even the government due to which more and more students declare,“I want to be an Engineer”. When I hear these words, I am like, “OH wow! That’s great but which area of Engineering you wish to work for.”

Most students don’t even know why they want to be an engineer, let alone what type of engineer. They say things like, “My parents told me that I will earn a lot of money even if I simply hold a Bachelor’s Degree in any of the wings”Engineering
