Information technology is still the top choice for future employment at engineering colleges in India for the Class of 2009, according to an AC Nielsen Campus Track T-schools study.

The study included 140 top engineering schools and surveyed students’ attitudes toward recruiting companies and prospective employers.

The top three companies among the students are Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Google and Accenture.

Asked about the top five industry sectors of the future, students listed IT products and services, nanotechnology, management consultancy, energy, oil and gas and finance.

Vatsala Pant, Associate Director, Client Solutions at The Nielsen Company, said:

“Though IT continues to be the favourite among engineering students, we can expect to see them face the heat from unexpected quarters in the years ahead through the resurgence of energy, oil and gas, financial services and banking firms, and an upsurge of nanotechnology.”
