Hello Harsh,New age jobs in the IT sector surely carry a charm as they offer high initial packages and also carry a scope for growth. But then, core Engineering still holds its own place and students who are actually interested in such fields do opt for core companies despite the fact that the packages offered are not as comparable.
Right Now Computer Science and IT branch are the hotshots of the market and are very promising.
Best of luck.
Considering the fact you are okay to do the hard-work and are good in logic plus maths, CS/IT are among the highest paid branches. Even people from other branches tend to appear for CS/IT jobs during their final years. One of the best thing with CS/IT is that you can switch to another job whenever/wherever as there are so many Startup and MNC’s coming to India.
And based on my experience I would suggest that growth opportunities are really high in this domain. Rest is upto you, please make a wise decision otherwise you will have to live with it throughout your life.
Best of luck!
