For the purpose of the present study total 160 subjects by using Random Sample survey were selected from G.G.V. Bilaspur (C.G.). Among them 80 male students were selected from Department of Physical Education and 80 male students were selected from Institute of Technology. Age range of the students was 19 to 23 years and mean of the age was 21.125±1.452. The Emotional Intelligence Scale developed by Thimgujam and Ram (1999) has been used in the present study. Mental depression was measured by the mental depression test constructed by Prof. L. N. Dubey (1993). To know the nature of data mean and S.D. used and to compare the Emotional Intelligence and Mental Depression between physical education and engineering student’s independent t-test was applied. To know the relationship of Emotional Intelligence with Mental Depression coefficient of correlation was used. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level. Data was analyzed by using SPSS 16.0 version software. The mean and SD of physical education students is 81.522 and 3.615 & the mean and SD of engineering students is 70.849 and 3.917 t-value is 17.909 that shows the significance difference between physical education and engineering students in comparison to Emotional Intelligence. The mean and SD of physical education students is 13.551 and 2.437 & the mean and SD of engineering students is 9.435 and 2.33, t-value is 11.462 that shows the significance difference between physical education and engineering students in comparison to Mental Depression.The Mean and SD of Score of Emotional Intelligence of the students is 76.186 and 6.50, The Mean and SD of Score of Mental Depression of the students is 11.493 and 3.064, the correlation value is .543 that shows significance relationship of Emotional Intelligence with the Mental Depression of the students.
