4. AME : (2 years)
Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) is a professional course. This course is totally different from engineering courses which I have discussed above. .
In all Engineering branches you will get B.tech degree(4 years), but in this course you will get license. And this license you will not get from your college , it provides by the head of Aviation field in your country (for example – DGCA in India) after clearing of module papers. Actually this course comes under Aviation field.
The responsibility of an Aircraft or plane to safely landing is totally depend on pilots and Aircraft maintenance engineering. There is no plane or Aircraft is going to take off without the signature of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer(AME).
Nowadays aviation field is the fastest growing field. This is the best course for those students who want pursue career in Aviation field or want to work in Airlines industries.
This course have two branches – Mechanical and Avionics. The duration of this course is basically 2 years. Only PCM 12th pass (minimum 45%) students are eligible for this course in India.

5. Merchant Navy or Marine :
This is the best course for those students who want to work in ship and in sea and want to make career in it.
In this field there is lack of opportunities and in some cases it may also happens that you wouldn’t get a job easily. So you should take admission in Government approved college or in best college.
If you want to make career in this field then there are many courses which you can do. First one is 3 years duration courses which are B.tech in marine engineering, B.tech in naval architecture, B.Sc and others. And second is 1 year course which is DNS ( Diploma in nautical science).
There are two categories of job profiles in Merchant navy – Officer and Non-Officer.
For Officer category, you should have more than 60% marks in 12th but in Non- Officer it is not mandatory. And also there are two types of department in this field, one is Dech department and another is Engine department.
6. Fashion designing :
This is the last course in my list. Fashion designing is all about Design, drawing, sketch, textile, texture pattern and others. Best collection of clothes are only designated by a Fashion designer.
Some people think, Fashion designer means a tailor which is not true. A tailor can design and sew a cloth without any creativity but a fashion designer uses creativity.
If you want to be a fashion designer then you should have at least 50% marks in 12th and also you should know some sketching and drawing. There are various types of Diploma(1 year) , Degree(3-4 years) and Certificate courses(3-6 months) in Fashion designing.
There are a lots of opportunities in this field. From a bride’s clothes or else a actor or star’s clothes are also designated by a fashion designer. Even which type of clothes would be on trending is also decide by a fashion designer.
There are many types of job in fashion designing. Some of them are Fashion coordinator, Entrepreneur, Pattern cutter and grader, Production and Design manager, Fashion stylist and others. After completion of fashion designing course you can start your own business.
