The mechanical industry is continuously registering a sustained growth in the last decade due to the entry of foreign players and increased competition and demand of the products in domestic as well as international markets. Also, we have seen the growth of public sector units like ISRO, DRDO, SAIL etc which always require more work force in the area of brainstorming and working category. An engineer is trained to be a part in the aforesaid category. Therefore, all these firms are preferring engineers who can handle the requirements and be an asset to the unit. A qualified Mechanical Engineering -Automobile student will never be starving for a job as the opportunities can be grabbed with their effort, hard work and improved trainings in the specialized areas. Besides, the area of materials, combustion, improved technologies, increased use of electronic systems etc. are calling for specialized persons in their particular area (multi domain handling skills) for future enhancements where our students can find their options for job.


Career options for a professional graduate in Mechanical Engineering-Automobile can be broadly classified into three sub segments

  1. Higher studies in postgraduate level: Bright candidates with an interest for deeper learning can opt for postgraduate courses such as M.Tech and ME in the specific areas pertaining to their areas of interest. There are a lot of universities in India as well as abroad who offers career- oriented post graduate programmes in the specified stream.
  2. Job: - The student who completes his/her course in the area pertaining to the main course can opt for jobs in the following segments
    1. Manufacturing firms: - A professional degree holder is required in the area of supervisory and managerial levels in the shop floor, manufacturing, assembly, logistic controls and in the Research & Development sections of a manufacturing unit.
    2. Supplier (Tier 1, Tier 2 etc): - The mechanical as well as automobile segment of the Indian industry is struggling to meet the requirement of the demand from the customer and therefore, always envisages growth in the supplier level to meet their demands. The suppliers who were linked with major manufacturing companies have grown to such a level that their turnover has crossed the turnover of the main manufacturers. Therefore, the supplier level jobs can be continuously seen in the major job oriented sites like naukri.com
    3. After sales & service: - The student can opt for being a part of the after sales service of the manufacturing units as well as the supplier units to look after and suggest remedial actions for the major and minor problems observed in the customer level feedback.
  3. As an entrepreneur: - Every manufacturing unit prefers its supplier to be at a close vicinity to manage the immediate requirements and modifications in the manufacturing plan. Therefore, manufacturers encourage a small scale industry at their vicinity that can supply components and sub systems at the required quantity and quality to the manufacturer. In the recent past, the manufacturers themselves have been providing loans for such entrepreneurial ventures at lower interest rates which will create a win-win situation for both.
