YoungBuzz Counselor - Dear Sanket Shah,

If you are aiming to to get into IIT. You can get into any college offering 10+ 2 with Physics , Chemistry and Maths. You can decide on Biology as per you choice. There are few Colleges in Kandivali and they are as follows :

1. Thakur College of Science and Commerce
2. Shri T. P. Bhatia Junior College of Science
3. Ujwal College Of Science
4. St. Lawrence Junior College Of Science & Commerce
5. Swami Vivekananda International School and Junior College

Now there difference between the 3 is this way :
- Engineering course is one of the most popular courses in India. Seeing the vastness of the course, the offered courses are huge in this segment. One can avail a variety of degree courses under the engineering category.

- Now the question that arises is that what the differences between both the above mentioned courses are. This is true that both avail two degrees and saves time, but then what is the difference that both the course are different from each other.

- The first difference is that in an integrated course, you get both the Bachelor and Master’s degree after 5 years of duration. Generally the Bachelor level course in Engineering is of 4 years and the master level is of 2 years more. So by integrated course you save 1 year and get both the degree at once. On the other hand, in dual degree course, you save your 1 year but you get the bachelor level degree after 4 years and the master level degree after 1 year more.

- Another difference is in the approach of studies. The dual degree is done in such a way that both the faculties teaching the course go with their regular schedule and complete the desired course in the same span of time. Whereas in integrated course, the faculties have to co-operate with each other in order to complete the course in the given span of time. This is another way that differentiates the integrated course from the dual degree course in Engineering.

- Integrated Engineering is a program created to meet the demand for engineers who are able to deal with a wide range of problems, often involving knowledge from several disciplines. The demand arise from the current state of industry, where both the products manufactured and the plants which make the products are progressing towards greater diversity and sophistication. Recent studies had shown concern in both Canada and in the United States that engineering graduates were not well-prepared for many of today's multi-disciplinary and project-based workplace. Several committees have been formed to study this and have published some material. One Canadian study was done by the Canadian Academy of Engineering and two of its main conclusions were:
Engineering faculties should ensure that breadth of learning, beyond the technical aspects of the specialist engineering discipline, is a major thrust in engineering education.
The engineering curriculum should emphasize problem-solving, design, and the development of the learning skills of their students. Integrated Engineers acquire background in core disciplines such as: materials, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and systems involving chemical, electro-mechanical, and biological components.

All the courses are good and its a individualistic opinion . You can select any courses as per you inclination.

Wishing you all the best!
