Technology is an ever-evolving sector and a change in technology inevitably demands a need for new and updated skills in professionals, whether it is in Engineering, Management, Accounting, Marketing, Sciences or any other domain.

The engineering profession, in particular, has a unique and vital role to play in ensuring that we move towards the world we want to see—one with more universal equality, sustainability and wellbeing.

Upcoming sectors in engineering

At MIT World Peace University (MIT-WPU), we strongly believe that engineers, irrespective of the specialization they choose, play a key role in shaping the relationship between technology and society, which will have massive implications on all aspects of humanity.

For the engineering profession to live up to its full potential, engineers will have to develop new skills and expand their skill-sets in socio-technological expertise. Here, we discuss the relevance and significance of two important engineering specializations, namely, Polymer Engineering and Civil Engineering, which are two upcoming sectors and hold a rich legacy in engineering excellence at MIT World Peace University.

Here are some quick highlights about MIT-WPU’s School of Engineering:

1. 10th best BTech Program in India

2. Highest Package in Engineering is 37.5 lpa

3. Research Projects worth over 21 crores

4. Ranked 15th among the Top Engineering Institutes (Times Survey)

5. Ranked 7th in all Private Engineering Institutes in India (Times Survey)

6. Curriculum and teaching methods aligned to the latest industry trends

Industry trends in Polymer Engineering

In most of the products that we use in our day-to-day life, the use of polymers is omnipresent. The market for polymers is in excess of USD 1 Trillion and that number is growing. With ground-breaking research occurring within the field, Polymer Engineering is entering new and upcoming areas such as, electronics, biodegradable plastics, medical equipment and utility.

Hence, with this rapid growth, the sector will need qualified polymer engineers with new relevant technology skill sets, such that they can enable breakthroughs in manipulating things at a molecular level to create brand new industries.

Industry-acclaimed Polymer Engineering program

The MIT-WPU School of Polymer Engineering is one of the first private Polymer engineering schools in the country. An industry-acclaimed BTech in Polymer Engineering at MIT-WPU is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of Polymer Science and Engineering (PSE) along with extensive exposure to the latest advances and technologies in the polymer industry through multiple industry visits.

Students can learn Polymer Engineering at MIT-WPU coupled with technological advancements. They can choose from electives such as:

1. AI & ML

2. IoT

3. Additive & Digital Manufacturing

4. Certificate in Rubber Technology by RSDC

Special scholarships are also available for students who would like to apply for this program this year at MIT-WPU.

Industry trends in Civil Engineering & career prospects

There has been a move within the civil engineering sector to work with nature and the environment, rather than battling it with concrete. Areas like flood defense or natural solutions for habitats are being explored such as, bogs, moors, ditches, leaky dams and grasslands, which can all help ‘slow the flow’ and ultimately, reduce flooding without the need for concrete.

MIT-WPU is one of the few universities incorporating all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals into its Curricula for all 80+ Study programs offered under its umbrella. Students gain hands-on experience and understanding of financial incentives, consumer consciences and an awareness of climate change that are likely to lead to far more engineering jobs related to environmental engineering. Lean manufacturing will become more commonplace – reducing waste and contributing to the ‘green’ ecology.
