Hi ,

Is dual worth the shot???

Ya according to me it is..letz check out some advantage we have

1) You get 2 degrees in 5 years

2) The M.Sc degree course are in no way related to the B.E. courses(except for few common coourses) . so you get 2 degrees at end of 5 you can potray urself as a Masters in Science or and engineer or even both

3)As you have two degrees it gives lots of options for higher studies...consider Bio with Mech dual...see how many reasearch option one has..and it is very easy to get admissions in top colleges

4)Dualites most of the time get better pay then normal engineering students.

5)Your one year internships is counted as experience by most of the if you work there and get placed there you will start of with a great pay package

6)And finally you dont have to waste that final year in can work in a company doin your PS-2(something like internship) and earn stipends


1)Most of the times the sciences degree do not help in your engineering...So itz upto you to explore those fields

2)Some companies do not allow dualites for placements(only few)

3) You have to complete 2 degrees in 5 years so itz sometimes hectic

4)You have a placement option of only one week(coz you will be doing your intern) while engineering group people stay on the campus complete sem for their placements...many dualites do a thesis on campus rather than intern so that they can stay for placements the whole sem..also many dualites get their jobs during their internship


Please feel free to post as many doubts on our disucssion forum as you can. If you find any question difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.

All the best.
