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.
