people go for engineering career path is b'coz its a professional course if u go for civil engineering degree u are eligible to become a panchayat plan approval engineer in municipal office by by registering yourself as a approval officer, and u you can write TNPSC exam for public works department jobs in WRO (water resources organisation) building maintenance in government buildings etc. If u study for electrical engineering course you can become a Junior Engineering in TNEB thats why people go for engineering course. about medical its a life saving education as you already know about it.
Few years back,there was a craze for the engineering and medical profession,but now the situation is very different.
which ever field you choose,that particular field will not fetch you money or reputation,provided if you really interested and aim to come up in the field you have chosen.You can not make money,just by opting to a highly paid profession.
The govt plan to produce the techie people in plenty so that the industrialists get very skillful labours with cheap cost .It is the service to the industrialists which section the govt represents .But unknowingly people think that the govt is serving them and it is producing techies for the welfare of youngers .The result is great lottery prize for college owners who sell edn for higher price and a big loan for the families prior to job .
Before sometime if anyone goes to a job he will earn ,save and will lead a happy life;but now joining in job and toiling for closing the loan amount.
