Engineering Career History

Engineering Career History


The career of an engineer starts with a college or university degree in engineering. They usually complete a four year study at least. TheEA, stamped on the collar of the engineering student, signifies that he has completed his studies and is eligible for a career in engineering. Reasons for choosing engineering as a career can be different:

1. + Engineering is a hands-on job. While other professions need a degree, engineering requires no specific expertise.

2. + Engineering provides numerous career opportunities. Engineering jobs don’t have a limit on time or resources and can span across several disciplines.

3. + Engineering is a field that offers very challenging jobs and even though it is a niche, still has potential career scope.

4. + Engineering is the most sought after profession with a close second of

While all these factors are true, only the degree alone is not sufficient to become an engineer. One has to undergo educational and professional experiences to fully understand the role of an engineer in the world. For instance during the cold war era of the 1950s and 1960s, engineers were looked upon as experts who could help the nation with its satellite technology and communications. During these years of martial law and the Cold War, engineers whose work entailed the use of computers were at a great disadvantage. The engineers who had mathematical or verbal talent were favored to do engineering jobs. These days, the demand for engineers who can solve complex problems has outgrown the area of 7th through 12th grades.

IITs and Engineering

The manufacturing of engineering products and key technologies directly results from the engineering colleges. Engineering students go to these colleges and pursue a professional career. Because of nation’s need for engineers and engineer assistants, the nation also issues many technical universities and colleges. These schools provide a broad curriculum that inculcate many of the skills required to become an engineer. These skills are fundamental skills like problem solving, cost control, and handling a workforce.

o IITs: This engineering discipline is prominent in the west, though not in India. It has a wide curriculum and comes second to Engineering as the preferred course of study in India.

o hourglass machining: This machining is divided into two parts:

o hourglass machining or glass machining where glass is literally hourglass-shaped in shape and assembled it into components by hot rolling, giving it special properties.

o refractory: This is engineering that deals with the properties of materials on different temperature scale, by using specially designed test tubes.

o stability analysis: stability analysis is the process of finding out the position of a material on a given support without using it.

o thermal paste: This is a design of materials that is used to fuse an element or materials together.

o wicketting: This is the process of designing, making and heating a material to make it gas tight.

o certification: Some of the engineering colleges in India are certified to offer engineering courses.
