Choosing the right career/stream for oneself is one of the most important decisions in life. While at a junior level, students are expected to study and put the same amount of importance to all the subjects, there comes a time when they must choose the right stream, with the right combination of subjects, keeping in mind their passion, love for a subject and the socio-economic factors.

Here are the streams/ careers that are in demand in 2022:

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Data Science is catching the fancy of admission aspirants this year. AI courses are the branch of computer science that creates or uses algorithms to create a stimulating computing environment or machine that can mimic the problem-solving ability of the human mind. An AI Engineering course helps to learn the practical skills and knowledge of the subject. 

For pursuing Robotics Engineering, a student has to specialise in Electronics, Programming, Computer Science, System engineering, and Signal Processing in their B.Tech (graduation) programme.

Psychology: Many students are opting for Psychology as their main subject along with other Humanities subjects like History and Law to further a career in Criminology or even Counselling. As the world turns into a lonely place to reside, with families breaking and working mothers, psychologists, psychotherapists and sleep specialists are in demand too. 

While Engineering remained the most preferred choice for students even a few years back, low-quality education in colleges with substandard skills and numerous engineers around has lost the stream’s charm and deviated it to these unconventional courses. 

According to O.P. Jindal Global University sources, people are increasingly understanding that Psychology’s ambit is much beyond the clinical setup, and has a good career prospect which can be in the fields such as Education (counselors), research, Forensic (criminal psychologists or criminology), Sports (sports psychologists), Economics and Behavioral Economics.

There is a strong need for video game creators, designers, developers, sound and audio engineers, or game actors or hosts.

They either write their opinions/ reviews for a magazine or publication or they have their own YouTube channel where they play to finish each level and give a review of the game for others.

Students with a background in computer science, who knows about hacking, information technology, coding, and software development, should have no problem finding a job in the future.
