In this article, you will know about a career in mechanical engineering, what are engineering jobs available in the market both in the private and government sector, what different mechanical engineering courses are offered, what Mechanical engineering branches are offering for post-graduation, and many more.
What you are going to learn?
A career in Mechanical engineering:
You are reading this blog because either you just completed your Higher Secondary exam, and you are willing to make a career in Mechanical Engineering or you are in class 10,11, and you are planning to become a Mechanical engineer, right?
As a Mechanical engineer, you have to deal with designing machine parts, control operations, manufacture, maintenance of mechanical systems, etc. There is a large number of job opportunities as well.
After completing Mechanical engineering you can be employed in the government sector, or private sector or you can start your own business.
Mechanical engineering jobs in the government sector:
There is plenty of government job opportunities with a very good pay scale. Central government PSU like ONGC, BHEL, IOCL, HPCL, BPCL, GAIL, SAIL, VIZAG STEEL, NTPC etc offer jobs through the GATE exam and they are conduct their own separate exam also.
You can be a researcher in an organization like ISRO, DRDO, or BARC. The most prestigious job in India is the IES exam conducted by UPSC.
The state gov. also recruits engineers through Public Service exams. Railways also open jobs for Mechanical engineers every year. There is many more opportunity like this.
Mechanical engineering jobs in the private sector:
