Career Prospects

With a degree or diploma in mechanical engineering, one can find job in various government and private sectors. Some government sectors that employ mechanical engineers are – Indian Army, Railway, Civil Services, NTPC, CESC, ISRO, and BHEL. However, some of these sectors need candidates to qualify in examinations. After completion of post graduation, one can also opt for research and development or a career in teaching. Being one of the primitive branches of engineering, the need for a mechanical engineer would always be in high demand. A certificate in mechanical engineering can open up career opportunities in chemical, automotive, computer, paper, manufacturing plants, steel industry, drilling and mining industry, hydraulics, aerospace, and power generation industries.
