Engineering is no more a costly affair in India. To be frank it has become a basic degree. It was during the 1980’s where Engineering is considered as one of the top most course and given a high preference in the society. If you are a engineer you earn respect in those days. Well, now no one cares that you are an Engineer but if you have the mettle no one can stop you.
