Top Three Trending Fields for Pursuing Engineering

Engineering plays a crucial part in our everyday life. The common things we use, like smart phones, cars, computers, aircraft, etc. are all gifted by engineers across the globe.

Engineers do their work consistently and provide us with everything that we need. They work primarily in innovation, designing brand-new products, and improving the existing ones. However, engineering has several fields ranging from mechanical engineering to computer engineering.

There are three most trending fields in engineering to pursue your studies that have a broad scope in the modern world. Let’s take a look.

1.  Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is the study, design, development, construction, and testing of mechanical, and thermal sensors and devices such as tools, engines, and machines.

As a mechanical engineer, you will collaborate to build gearboxes, engine components, aviation engines, compressors, robots, machine tools, space shuttle vehicles, turbines, pumps, power plants, factories, and other items.

2.  Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering combines electrical engineering and computer science to produce new computer hardware and applications.

Computer engineers design, develop, and test computer hardware and software. They then evaluate the results and upgrade outdated equipment to comply with new software. Some engineers also manage manufacturing and development processes, while others focus on software testing.

3.  Artificial Intelligence & Data Science

Artificial Intelligence and Data Science is a new field of study that works with scientific procedures, processes, and strategies drawn from several disciplines such as statistics, cognitive science, computers, and information science to extract knowledge from organized and unstructured data.

Graduates of AI and DS will build and develop intelligent business solutions to handle several industrial challenges. They suggest solutions based on the most recent tools and open-source technology. They can assess the ethical, legal, competent, and social standards of engineering knowledge and practices. Data scientists are among the highest-paid employees in India.

Interestingly, these three engineering disciplines are offered by the Amrapali Group of Institutes, being regarded as among the best in Uttarakhand. You can enroll in our courses by visiting www.admission.amrapali.ac.in.

Shape Your Future With a Master of Computer Application (MCA) Degree


Individuals’ lives have been strongly affected by computers employed in many aspects of their lifestyles. Computers are found in workplaces, hospitals, shopping malls, and even private homes! They assist us with calculations, data storage, and organization and educate us. They improve speed and accuracy in several approaches, allowing us to save both time and money.

Computers have made substantial contributions to many disciplines, including science, technology, education, and society, to name a few! Therefore, based on this, many computer courses are offered by renowned institutes. Master of Computer Applications (MCA) is one such course. Let us learn more about this course in brief.

About Master of Computer Application (MCA)

Passive Funds

Right from the 1970’s, mutual funds have grown all across the world at a steady rate. In fact, there has been a rapid growth in mutual funds in the last decade. People opt for active or passive funds whenever they choose to invest in mutual funds. In the early days of mutual funds, the market share of active funds was very high and that of passive funds was quite low. However, we see that this trend has been changing and in the recent years passive funds have almost come at par with active funds. More and more people are opting to choose for passive funds rather than active funds.

One needs to know that the target audience of both active and passive funds is different.

Passive funds are those funds in which the fund manager does not have to work actively. The investment is done according to the index. Popular index funds in India include that of NIFTY 50 and SENSEX. As the name suggests, in case of active funds, the fund manager has to work actively. The target of these active funds is to provide better returns than the benchmark index. This is done by either taking higher risk for getting higher returns or by investing in big companies and getting stable returns.

The expense ratio of active funds is slightly higher than that of passive funds. Expense ratio is the fees charged by the fund manager in return for its services. Keeping track of the expense ratio becomes highly crucial in order to maintain a stable flow of returns. According to SEBI the maximum expense ratio for active funds can be 2.25% and that of passive funds can be 1%. However, in practice, this ratio comes down to 0.3%.

The first index fund was launched in 1976 by John C. Bogle, the founder of Vanguard. The aim was to provide people with a facility to invest at trusted places and bear a less expense ratio. This custom of passive funds grew in the US and subsequently elsewhere. In India, in 2019, out of the total money invested in mutual funds, 16% came from just passive funds and ATFs whereas this share was just at 3% in 2015. This shows a rapid growth of passive funds in the recent years. A larger base is attracted to mutual funds because of the low risk and stable returns. As a result, even tier-2 and tier-3 cities are seeing growing investments in mutual funds. This is also a consequence of growing financial awareness among the masses.

The SIPS have grown in the past four years from Rs. 33.1 billion in June 2016 to Rs. 73 billion in November 2020. Actually, passive funds are ideal for those who don’t have a lot of knowledge about mutual funds but still want stable returns. This classification encompasses a lot of people, much more than those willing to put in the time and effort involved in managing active funds. It involves keeping a constant check over the fund manager, their actions and measures. Judiciously managing passive funds involves keeping a track of the expense ratio as well as the tracking error. Both should be low. If only the expense ratio is low and not the tracking error, it brings us back to square one.

Passive funds have really taken over the times as even investment moguls like Warren buffet encourage people to go for passive funds. The decision should however be based on the present circumstances of the investor, whether they should opt for active or passive funds. 

Passive and other topics are discussed at the Faculty of Commerce and Business Management at Amrapali Institute, Haldwani. Amrapali Educational Institute is a top ranked institute in Uttarakhand.
