    It is a general feeling that some streams are not suitable for girls. It is not that they cannot do so, just that the human body is such that physical work is mostly done by men. Before you choose a stream it is important that you have goal in life. You need to decide what kind of job you would like doing. Also how beneficial it will be for you. It is possible for you change streams. You need to get in touch with your college authorities. Also it will be easier if the stream is there in the college you are pursuing the course. Otherwise you may need to contact the university authorities.

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    Engineering is one of the highly preferred careers in India. There are lots of industries available in India and abroad which offer excellent jobs for engineering graduates. Electronics and Communication Engineers have huge demand. The ECE plays a major role in the improvement and production in industries along with the testing and control of products. It has wider application in the communication industry in the development of computers, military devices, consumer electronics, communication equipments etc. ECE engineers will get jobs in government and private companies, both in India as well as aboard. Petroleum Engineers have highly challenging jobs. A person who wants to live their life on the edge will enjoy this kind of jobs. There are many companies who recruit Petroleum Engineers and are paid high remuneration. You can choose any field. Petroleum Engineering involves extensive travelling to different places. If you like this type of jobs then you can choose this field.

    ECE is the best branch of all the engineering branches.
    It has made the world totally based on the chips and various modern inventions are due to this branch.
    Science got a great sort of advantage from this branch.

    FOR SURE, ELECTRONICS ENGG IS BEST AND HAVE A GREAT OPPRTUNITY TO BUILD CAREER IN PUBLIC AS WELL PRIVATE SECTOR BUT IF YOU HAVE OTHERWISE INTEREST IN PETROLEUM ENGG THEN YOU CAN GO FOR THAT ALSO. GULF COUNTRIES HAVE A GREAT JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN PETROLEUM ENGG RELATED JOBS.
    BUT I RECOMMEND YOU TO GO FOR ELECTRONICS ENGG.

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    i would say ece is much much better than petroleum for the simple reason that ece is a very flexible branch what i mean is that one can easily take computer science jobs and electrical jobs and in petroleum engineering you are stuck with petro engineering only.
    also there is a little problem for girls but even for a guy i would suggest ece

    DEAR FRIEND,
    ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING IS MUCH BETTER THAN PETROLEM ENGINEERING.
    BUY IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN ECE THAN GO FOR PETROLEUM ENGINEERING.

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    Look first of all there is a more wider job market available for students with a BE degree in Electronics & comm.
    as compared to Petroleum engineering.
    After compleating your BE in ECE you can get a job in Embedded, Software, Telecom, Automation, and IT sector.
    You can also get a job in Maufacturing units & Process plants in the maintainence department.
    But after a BE in petroleum the job oppoutunities available to you will be limited to only companies related to petroleum and refinaries.
    I think it would be better to continue with ECE.
    However your intrest level is also important. So if you are more intrested in petroleum , then go for it.
    And don't worry about the girl thing.
    Girls have made their presence in almost every industrial sector.
    If you have the will then it does not matters that you are a boy or girl.

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    In between your choices these two fields too differ from each others because your first choice is ECE and other Petroleum ,so it is better to choose ECE because in INDIA there are only few collages they provide petroleum engineering.

    HELLO ,
    In my point of view both fields have there pertigeous value .
    But if you have interest in the electronics then the Electronics and Communication Engineering is the good choice for B.tech. This is the core branch you can many opportunities in this.
    on the other hand if you want go in the petroleum engineering ,it is also have the wide scope in which you can make your career brighter and brighter. You can get high pakage in this field from starting.
    But go according to your choice .
    GOOD LUCK.

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    In my opinion, electronic and communication engineering is more beneficial to you. Because petroleum engineering is a bit cumbersome from the point of view of girls.in order to work as a petroleum engineer. you have to work in dusty and noisy environment. So, in my opinion, you should go for the other option.other reason why i am suggesting it is because petroleum engineers are usually employed in the
    specific type of industry.On the other hand, electronic engineers are employed in a number of types of industries.

    Not any thing like that what your thinking,
    anyone can do B TECH in ECE. ECE subjects are about signals, electric current, magnetism, maths and some computer applications.
    If you are good at physics what you have studied so far then this is also easy for you.
    ECE maths includes matrix, functions, integration, differentiation and probability linked problems.
    If you learn with concepts its easy for you.
    good luck....!!

    Hi,
    Electronics and communication engineering is a very good and evergreen branch of engineering and a very good scope in future.
    but if you are interested in petroleum engineering its also a very different and a very interesting field but the problem is you have to struggle a lot for getting jobs in petroleum industries.
    there are very few ob opportunities in this field and as you know now a days oil companies are suffering from heavy looses that's why, they may not provide much jobs for freshers.
    Future is not secure there.
    But still if you are very much interested you have to study harder and get exceptionally good marks.
    As a girl its better that you do ECE only a very comfortable job for you.
    In petroleum industries you have to deal with hardware's which better suit male persons.
    Good luck...!!

    both are best but you need to clarify that in which field you have interest because without interest you join course then it will not beneficial for you
    by the way ELECTRONICS AND COMM.ENG. is best then petroleum
    so i suggest to you that join ece
    branch it will help in your future
    petroleum scope may be stop after several years
    all the best for ece

    Electronics and communication is mouch in demand and an ever green subject you can definately opt for it.Electronics is applied in all most all the fields like mechanical, software.Many good colleges like IITs,nits are
    providing the placements in top mncs like the wipro,tcs,hcl,hp.
    you will also getting placed in top elctronics companies like the sony,intel,amd,panasonic with very good attractive salries.you can even go for the IES exam and the higher studies like the mtech.

    Dear it is better to continue with ECE as ECE is having a wider career option it may be software or Telecom.,at the same time you can get into the research or scientist .You can get an entry into ISRO as a scientist but in the petroleum you will have a limited scope.So try to find the better place for you.All the best

    Re: Which stream is better Electronics and Communication Engineering or petroleum engineering?

    Dear Minerva.
    Both ECE and petroleum engineering being a part of engineering are very good and scoring fields.
    But as a counseller I would suggest you to remain well with the ECE only.
    I am saying this because ECE is the fastest growing sector of the world. It covers a wide rang of applications we daily requires and which make our lives easier and enjoyable such as computers, print media, Audio and video media, communication sector,etc..
    Areas where the ECE get jobs include telecom, hardware, networking, embedded systems allied areas such as VLSI design and fabrication and sofware development along with mobile computing.
    The jobs are in the central govt, state govt, their sponsored corporation in public sector and in all wings of armed forces and private organisation as a asst. Engineer, technical officer, scientific officers,etc..
    The jobs in the Indian defence and IES for ECE are very good than petroleum engineers which is approx. nil for that.
    The jobs in petroleum engg are very narrow.
    The jobs are also vigrous and tensed in petroleum refineries and departments.
    Also ECE is an evergreen and growth sector with no impact of recession whereas the petroleum field is directly in contact with the market fluctuations.

    So in view of this I would suggest you to go with ECE.

    ::Good Luck::
