Why should one pursue Computer Engineering/ Information Technology?
- The Computer/ IT industry size in India is estimated to be 10 lakh crore rupees and it is one of the largest industries in India. In fact, India is the largest outsourcing destination for CE/ IT companies.
- A lot of IT companies have directly benefited from Government of India’s ‘Digital India’ campaign. Digital payment companies like Paytm, Mobikwik, Walnut, etc. have acquired the center stage. Most of the top paying jobs in Computer/ IT will definitely go to CE/IT Engineers.
- The industry gives employment to 1 crore Computer/ IT professionals in India and it is only set to grow from here.
- Companies like Amazon, Flipkart, Google, Apple, Facebook, etc. pay up to 1 crore rupees+ starting salary packages to deserving Degree Engineers! This is not possible to achieve in other fields of study.
- So far, there are 4,200 startup companies in IT sector in India. Gujarat Government offers financial assistance to those willing to start their own companies in IT. But for that, you will need to complete Degree Engineering and acquire the right skill set.
- The Government of India is pushing towards two key policies that will provide plenty of jobs to CE/IT Engineers:
- Digital Economy and AADHAR linked transactions Both these policies will add millions of new jobs in IT sector in upcoming years.
- The Cloud Computing market in India is expanding at 36% rate per year.
- Do you want to enter a company at a junior level and stay there for all your life? By completing CE/IT Engineering, you make yourself available for higher positions in a company.
- Do you want to start your career with only INR 5,000 – INR 10,000 job or do you want to start your career with reputed companies like Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, IBM, etc.?
Think how much your inaction in the present may cost you your future.
