The top employers of mechanical engineers are sectors such as railways, heavy-engineering, ship yards, ports, mining, defence forces, national highways and metro rail corporation. As cities are developing, there is also development of metro rails to increase connectivity. This is another area that will see huge demand for mechanical engineers. If you have a passion for physics and the functioning of things, building of mechanisms, then this is the branch that you should go for. Mechanical engineering requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. If you are talented and ready to work hard, there is lot of job opportunity in this sector. It is advisable to complete mechanical engineering in Chennai, Mangalore or Bangalore in south India as these cities are consists of 60% of manufacturing plants in south India.
The late nineties and early 2000s saw a sudden boom in infrastructure development leading to an increasing requirement for civil engineers. All construction projects required site engineers, supervisors and architects; fuelling the demand for civil engineers. This branch deals with the construction, designing and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment which includes, roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. It is a very interesting and satisfying profession as you can see the result of your work, whether it is a high-rise building, a hydroelectric dam, a subway station, or a completed bridge. 50% of construction activities are undertaken in tier 1 metro cities, which means, for a civil engineer, the best job opportunities would be in metros across cities. Since companies are also situated in Tier-1 cities, it is better to do civil engineering from Bangalore, Chennai, or Hyderabad as the chances of getting hired are higher. You can also try cities like Coimbatore, Mangalore, Mysore, Cochin etc. as these are rapidly developing Tier 2 cities. Major construction and developers companies like DHL, Ozone group, Embassy group are hiring civil engineering candidates from Bangalore, Chennai and Coimbatore on a large scale.
With the end of the school days, a new career journey starts! A journey that is filled with everlasting ambitions, courage and strong will to design your career worthwhile.
Chief Planning Engineer
Expected salary: Rs. 1.8 Lakh to Rs. 5 Lakh per annum
In India R&D, innovation and electronics manufacturing sectors are very weak and do not provide enough opportunities to engineers of electronics, chemical, textile, instrumentation, bio-medical and aeronautical branches. However, service sector is the strongest as per job opportunities and commercial gains. Be it banking, airlines, insurance, railways, hospitals, hospitality or IT field; every where there is a requirement of software solution. The billions of devices produced in every sector from automobile to aerospace need microprocessor control, which are software driven. It is not only development or coding of these services and devices but also testing and life-time support, which needs CSE engineers in drove. This demand is not going to go away ever, albeit may slow down for limited periods. The major chunk of jobs offered in India, every year, are for CS engineers.
