If you are planning to do engineering, then studying engineering abroad is a wise decision. One gets well-rounded education with an access to the latest innovations and research facilities. Engineering is a very broad discipline which is further divided into many branches and each specializing in a particular field like Computer Science, Mechanical, and Electronics etc. It is not just that the scope of engineering is only limited to its own sphere of influence but it also very much linked with fields like art, medicine and biology.
