Better to got to IEEE and search on the google regarding the topics on which you want to perform.
If you don't know any topics, then just Google them out, or take any topic according to your area of interest.

A research paper is not a trivial thing to embark on, and certainly not an easy thing to produce. In this context writing a 'research paper' is not just researching something and then summarising it in a paper. A 'research paper' is a document that outlines the details of some deep understanding and advancement in some field of study that you have achieved.

It sounds like you have things a little back to front, which makes me wonder if you fully grasp the purpose of a research paper. Usually I'd expect the research and advancement to have happened already before the idea of writing a paper about it comes about.

Perhaps a more in depth discussion about it with your teacher would be advantageous for you.

As you guys said, i discussed with my teacher and he said we can do research over the education sector that is from which sector toppers come from or how the students of the metro city doing against others.
and the process is like -
we will use real data of about 800 to 1000 college student and use clustering technique we will make a cluster of a different group based on some important parameter(like from where they belongs, about there family condition, how they scored in there middle school and higher school, etc )

well, my question is now, will this do any good to my career or should i choose another topic ??

What methodology are you using? Some sort of ethnography? Why has anybody suggested that sort of thing as an exercise in Computer Sciences (=CS)? It doesn't look like CS to me. Have you searched something like the ACP library, IEEE library, your university's research databases, or Google Scholar to find out whether anybody else has already done that sort of thing?

Over ten years ago, Bornat and Dehnadi (Richard  Bornat,  Saeed  Dehnadi,  and  Simon [???].    Mental  models,  consistency  and  programming  aptitude.
In Simon and Margaret Hamilton, editors, Tenth Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE 2008),  volume  78  of CRPIT,  pages  53–62,  Wollongong,  NSW,  Australia,  2008.  ACS.   URL
http: //crpit.com/confpapers/CRPITV78Bornat.pdf) described some simple tests which could be applied to beginning undergraduates and predicted heir exam performance. I sugges you consider repeating that, if you want something ethnographic in the educational field.


Warning: Many people consider Bornat's work to be bogus. In that case negative results may be worthwhile.

Actually, having read a bit more, I think repeating Bornat may be worthless. There was a 2006 paper suggesting their technique worked, but the paper I linked to says it later failed to live up to its early promise, so following that route may be a waste of time.
