Career Scope for Engineers

Engineering, for long, has been one of the most sought-after academic disciplines. With the ever increasing demand for new and better technology, the trend is expected to continue. The science of Engineering converts theoretical knowledge into practical designs that form the framework for more sophisticated machines dealing with all aspects of modern life – from agriculture to manufacturing and from space to aeronautics.

India has a large number of well-known institutes for engineering that churn out Engineers with highly evolved skills. The internationally renowned IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) rank amongst the best in the world for technical education. Besides the IITs, some of the other institutes of great repute include BITS (Birla Institute of Technology and Science), the NITs (National Institutes of Technology) and many more. On completion of the course, these institutions confer their students with a B. Tech (Bachelor of Technology) or a BE (Bachelor of engineering) degree.  Engineers graduating from such institutions are in great demand in corporate houses in India and overseas.

A student can choose to specialise in any branch of engineering depending on his or her interest and aptitude. The most sought after branch of engineering is Computer Science & Engineering, mainly because of the demand of such engineers and the high salaries they command. The other popular branches include Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Electronics engineering. There is an overlap in the course structure for Computer engineering, Electrical engineering and Electronics engineering.

Engineers are highly sought-after by organisations for the wide variety of roles. Organisations involved in manufacturing and design seek graduate engineers on a regular basis. Besides the obvious technical jobs, engineering students are also in high demand for jobs that require analysis as a part of their requirements. This is due to the analytical nature of the engineering courses. Highly respected consulting companies, like McKinsey, often seek graduate engineers to perform analytical roles. A lot of engineers have also turned towards entrepreneurship. Several notable high profile entrepreneurs have an engineering background.

The ones inclined towards research can choose to further specialise in their areas of interest by pursuing Masters Courses in engineering. If the student has an inclination and skill towards research, a Masters Course in Engineering is ideally suited for him or her.
