What motivated you to prepare for the JEE exams?
If you could go back in time, what would you change about your preparation strategy?
What made you opt for Computer Science & Engineering stream?
Trends from the past years showed that every year most of the top 50 JEE rankers opted for Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) at IIT Bombay. I felt that it would be a good choice because it will give me a chance to compete with the best students of the country.
Also, a lot of seniors who I spoke to gave good reviews of Computer Science & Engineering. The stream opens up a wide range of opportunities - research, placement, higher studies, etc. Seniors from IIT Bombay helped me finalize my stream.
How do you feel about opting for Computer Science & Engineering now?
What is your favorite domain in Computer Science?
What do you see yourself doing in the next 5 years?
Would you go back and change the stream you picked if you could?
I have an advice for juniors. If you feel unsure about which branch to choose - go for CSE! It is absolutely fine to have no idea of various branches. No one expects a student to know everything about aerospace engineering or metallurgical engineering.
I personally recommend taking CSE because it will open up a lot of opportunities for anyone. You can pursue research/higher studies, sit for placements or work at the top tech companies!
