 Trend in engineering profession

In mid 90’s and early 2000’s it is true that there were huge demand in engineering profession. After 2005-06 the environment slightly changed and now requirement of engineering profession become stagnate.

In other way we can say that the demand is more or less equal as compared to early 2000’s but on other side the supply is dramatically increased. As we aware that India is home for more than 3300 engineering colleges (Tamil Nadu- 600, Andhra Pradesh-550, Maharashtra-350, Karanataka-150 and Kerala-100).

Every year across India almost 2.5 million (25 lakh) engineering students are coming out.

So, while selecting engineering profession along with division need to assess the current and future trend of that division.

What Industry looks for

  • Sound knowledge of the fundamentals
  • Ability to transform the design document into work floor solution
  • Sound knowledge of Engineering ethics and principles
  • Integrate the solutions and work processes with environmental and human factors
  • Well informed decision making
  • Be part of a team
  • Strong interpersonal skills

Career Prospects:

  • As entry-level engineers gain experience and knowledge, they may work more independently, making decisions, developing designs, and solving problems.
  • With further experience, engineers may become technical specialists or supervisors over a staff or team of engineers or technicians.
  • Engineers find job opportunity in almost all related industries, academics, and research institutes.
  • They could also find employment in the government sector as well, in the various arms of state and central government.
