An Evergreen Career of Mechanical Engineering

mechanical engineering career

Mechanical engineering as a stream has been there for centuries now, and we may very safely say that it is one other most evergreen streams of engineering. The beginning of mechanical engineering marks way back in the 18th century and it is primarily about application of physics, engineering and material design in machinery. Mechanical engineering deals with machinery, its designing, manufacturing, functioning, maintenance and more in application areas like various different industries, war arsenal, robots and more. Since, the day it came into being the stream has seen consistent innovation and development.

Career Pre-requisites:
To pursue a mechanical engineering career one has to get a degree in mechanical engineering after completing 12th Science. Mechanical engineering degree is a 4 year undergraduate course after which you may take up work or go for higher education, as in Masters in Engineering and further more a doctorate in the same. Once you are a mechanical engineering you have a choice of areas to work in. Here’s a rundown the same.
Designing – As a design person you may look into designing anything that is useful to humankind and works on mechanical motion.
Manufacturing – Manufacturing is about processing materials to make new products based on the design specifications.
Management – This involves supervision and monitoring of the machinery in power plants, large industrial setups and more.
Research & Development – This is an unending area of work where innovation and development goes on and on until the end of time. You create, you innovate and evolve.

Earlier it was only about mechanical engineering but now there are a lot of sub-streams where mechanical engineers can plunge into. This includes the latest ones like bio-medical engineering , nuclear engineering, robotics engineering and more. Robotics and bio-medical engineering seems to have a lot of scope in the coming years. The various industries that require mechanical engineers to work for them include the Steel Plants, Automobile Industries, Aviation, Shipping, Armed Forces, Thermal Plants, Shipping Industry.

As far as the remuneration is concerned, a fresher can get anywhere between 10k to 30k. Though, with the entrance of MNCs in India the salary limits have increased and hence there are chances you get even more. Experienced professionals get high salaries like 45k onwards, all depending upon the years of experience, skills, efficiency and other factors.

In a nutshell, the crux of the matter is that Mechanical engineering is absolutely a lucrative career that offers sufficient growth and job satisfaction to people who are passionate about mechanics.

NEET For Engineering – The Debate is On

The national eligibility and entrance test (NEET) is now mandatory for medical college admission. This would help in a way that students wouldn’t have to prepare for many entrance exams of different colleges/universities. There would be one entrance exam that would be accepted all over the country.

After this announcement, even the engineering students and faculties are demanding the same for engineering entrance as well.

Suggestions also came in stressing upon having a common entrance test for Btech courses with a common syllabus across the country. They also insisted that the tests needed to be conducted in vernacular languages, so as to make it convenient for the students who have studied in regional schools. At present, there is a lot of the load on the students because they have to give many different entrance exams for admission to BTech courses. This includes IIT entrance exams, BIT entrance exams and more.

Though there has been a differed opinion where some academicians feel that having a NEET for medical entrance is a good idea but it need not be mandatory for engineering courses. The main reason is that medical colleges are very less in number as compared to engineering colleges. There are already 2 all India entrance exams with thousands of seats for IIT and NIT. Further JEE and EAMCET entrance exams also are there for qualifying to a good engineering college. So, apparently there is no need for extending the NEET to engineering.

Suggestions have also poured in saying a panel or body needs to be formed for devising a common syllabus, with a holistic approach. The same has been put forth by the central government and is being upheld by the Supreme Court as it has a lot of benefits for students and parents in general. Giving many entrance tests puts on a financial burden on the students and their parents as well. There are a lot of hassles involved as well, that include application form filling, travelling to the test location and more. Additionally the students attend many coaching centres for the different tests which makes a huge hole in the pockets of parents. Hence, NEET for engineering has got a green signal from from general public.
