    I have got selected in Joint Entrance Examination conducted by IIT's of India for admissions. According to my rank, I am getting the Engineering Physics branch at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. I am greatly interested in Physics hence want to opt for this branch, but my parents are not quite sure that it could provide me any secure future.
    Further, i have an offer from Indian institute of Science, Bangalore to join there for B.Sc. In India, frankly speaking, B.Sc. degrees are not considered good. Hence my parents are not comfortable with it too.
    My future plans converge on becoming a particle physicist and i want to do M.Sc. in physics from some good university outside India.
    Right now I have following options,
    4 year B.Tech. Engineering Physics, IIT Bombay
    4 year B.Tech. Engineering Physics, IIT Delhi
    5 year Dual degree M.Tech in Engineering Physics with specialisation in Nanoscience, IIT Bombay
    4 year B.S. course at IISc, Banglore
    4 year B.S. physics at IIT Kanpur
    Please, let me know the future scopes of these branches and your opinion about the better option.

    Oh. Even I have the same options.
    Iisc in banglore is a new course. I've heard that faculty is good. But as this is the second year only, I can't comment much.
    Also faculty in Bombay and Kanpur in physics are good. But if you are more inclined towards application, then Bombay may be not be a bad option.
    I still am deciding.
    Also do check the prospective posts in the department of physics-iit Bombay ,it maybe of some use for you to decide.

    Reese95, I think I recognize you. Also, OP said he wants to be a particle physicist. So I wouldn't recommend EP bombay.

    Oh, anyway, if you are really interested in learning the fundamentals. You might as well consider BS from Kanpur and BS from IISc. Which brings back to the original question.

    Are you aware that "particle physicist career" and "secured future" have a very small joint probability?

    Assuming you meant that for all three of us, i was made aware of that through numerous posts here. Also, i personally don't mind, eveb
    though i haven't decided what kind of physicist i'll be yet.
