Computer/IT engineering in India

I am searching for a suitable branch of Engineering for my daughter. The usual trend in India is to go for Computer/IT Engineering. I wonder whether there is (or will be) saturation in this field. I mean very soon no jobs will be available for these people. Is there any other filed that has good job prospectus in India? How much saturation is there for Computer/IT Engineers?

Thank you.

It is hard to predict long term trends, but I don't think there will be job saturation in CS at least for the top talent. I think you are right, the trend is shifting, and while jobs that are abundant right now will probably saturate. But more jobs involving solution of difficult problems like those in data analytics and figuring out value adds will continue.
