Technology is changing everything and at an unbelievably fast pace. Engineering's specializations that were unheard of a decade ago, now happen to be the most sought-after specialties. With the education space undergoing a tectonic shift across India, more and more avenues to pursue unique Engineering domains are also gaining prominence.
Brain Checker, India's largest career counselling company, which recently launched its flagship product named Brain Checker Engineering Sorter Test (B.E.S.T) evaluating students on over 100+ engineering specialisations decided to recommend specialisations smartly using psychological tools.
"Around 3 out of 10 students in India opting science stream wish to become engineers. That's a huge number when you look at the fact that India produces approximately around 15 Lakh engineers a year. However, what's surprising is that most of these engineering students aren't even aware of 30 engineering specialisations while they prepare for entrances like IITs. We wanted to change this; BEST helps engineering aspirants take up careers that would be in demand 10 years hence", said Keya Raje, Co-Founder, Brain Checker.
Clear-Cut Road Map
"Competition is staggering when it comes to premium institutions like IITs and NITs, we would want our students to have a clear-cut road map of the specialisations that they should opt based on their strength. Around 194 students at my institute have already taken up BEST and we are happy with the outcome", said Pradeep Pednekar, Director, Professional Learning Institute, Goa.
