    It's very good. Cities such as Banglore, Noida and a few more in south have developed a big IT hub. Pune and Mumbai in Maharashtra also have become global IT centers. The future is good for now, atleast for next 2-3 years. However, if you are entering college this year, I prefer you to take EC branch. It would help you to go in any "successful" branch after your graduation.

    According to leading reports, Indian software industry is set to achieve a turnover of 10 billion dollars by the year 2005. The projected demand for trained I.T. professionals is estimated at over 400,000 per year. There is a clear imbalance between the demand and supply of IT professionals with the result that this sector offers one of the highest remuneration packages. The Internet is a new revolution that is sweeping the world. It promises to change the way we work, live, shop, communicate and entertain ourselves.

    More and more IT work is being outsourced to India and this has resulted in a lot more career opportunities there. Do you specialise in any particular programming language? Do you have any plans to work for yourself or to become a freelancer?

    It depends what kind of development you are interested in. You should find out what the buzz is at the moment and what it is likely to be in 5 years time and learn as much as you can.

    I hear a lot about multi-core and hypervisor as I currently work for a US software company. Obviously Linux is still a growing market place and even though it is open source companies are making money from it.

    You should think about the kind of products that will always be required in any economy (transport, military and similar) - what developments could enhance what is already out there? What skills would you need to know to be able to do those enhancements? examples: car-infotainment, despite the problems in the auto industry, big money is being spent on improving these systems all the time. Mobile technology, take a look at 'android' or the 'LiMo Foundation' these can give you an insight on where some of the big companies want to go.

    A lot of outsourcing job opportunities are being provided to India because of their web developing skills.Most of the freelancers came from India and earning well there.

    It's probably a very proimising future, considering that a lot of companies are outsourcing to India and the trend will continue.
