Top 5 Engineering Colleges in Karnataka

Choosing engineering as a career option is one of the hardest things you can choose for your life as it requires a lot of hard work and skills.

Engineering is a creative course with a lot of exposure and employment options but there are hundreds of myths going around the country about Engineering which may make anyone think twice about choosing this course.

If you have always been curious about machines and often think what makes a gadget tick, Engineering is the right course for you.


While there are a lot of options to choose from, I recommend you to go through about each course in detail and then make your choice.

A right college is the most important thing. As this would be your first step towards Engineering career, you need a college which provides the highest quality of education, otherwise, you would see the myths coming true if you choose the inappropriate or not-so-famous college.
