“Scientists dream about doing great things. Engineers do them”- James A. Michener
In India, engineering continues to be a widespread career choice, for students and parents alike. What makes this field especially popular is the fact that there is no dearth of lucrative employment opportunities for engineers, both in our country and abroad.
The profession has gone global over the years, as major companies with presence in various countries are trying to reach more markets and leverage local workforce for operational efficiencies. The immediate future will see a major need for engineers who are able to work in a diverse, multi-national, and multi-disciplinary environment. Hence, there is no lack of opportunities to expand your horizons and career prospects overseas should you choose engineering as a profession.
Demand and supply gap of engineers
Although lakhs of engineers are churned out every year by academic factories across the nation, barely 10% of them are worth employing. This is largely because there is usually wide gap between what they study in college and the skills they need at work. Freshers are completely unaware of current industrial needs and often lack the skill set required, not only to crack interviews but also to excel in their professional careers. Hence, it has become quite crucial to focus on equipping engineers with the skill sets that companies demand.
