Jobs after M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering

October 10, 2011

Post graduation in Mechanical engineering is good mainly from academic and industry research perspective. They have reasonable opportunities, more abroad than India because of the presence of lot of manufacturing firms. Germany, Korea, Japan, and US are some of those countries where mechanical engineers, especially with specialization in automobile engineering can find good jobs. In India, jobs are relatively less fitting a post graduation in mechanical engineering. There is very little research happening in manufacturing sector in India.

 

Private Sector Jobs after M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering

Students who possess a postgraduate degree in mechanical engineering or an additional degree in management can find jobs with the managerial or administrative departments of pioneer industries in the private sector. If they choose, it is also possible for them to go for industry research. Other opportunities are:

  • Teaching in Engineering Colleges
  • Consultant in transportation, logistics and automobile engineering firms
  • IT firms like IBM and Wipro take post graduate mechanical engineers in their software division which supports automobile engineering giants like Ford and other heavy machinery manufacturing giants.
  • Automobile, piping, power sector
  • Fundamental pre-sea training or a program in nautical science to join as navigating officers or marine engineers.

Government Sector Jobs after M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering

Simultaneously, there are a lot of career opportunities that are made available for postgraduate students of Mechanical engineering. Freshers can join as Junior Engineers and there is a possibility that skilled engineers can get promoted to the positions of Assistant Engineers, Assistant Executive Engineers and Executive Engineers in public sector firms which are into multiple areas of manufacturing sector like power plants, machinery plans like HAL and so on. The top most position a mechanical engineer can attain is Superintendent Engineer. These engineers are wanted in field like
