In the field of Mechanical
Mechanical engineering is the broadest of all engineering fields, the job prospects on offer for skilled mechanical engineers are aplenty and unending. Mechanical engineers are required to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems that are used in countless industries. These professionals can find employment both in the government and private sector undertakings.
Major industries that employ mechanical engineers include automobiles, space research, aeronautical, energy and utilities, air conditioning, bio-mechanical industry. Other major employers include giant manufacturing plants, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, turbine manufacturing plants, oil and gas exploration and refining industries and the agricultural sector.
In the government sector, mechanical engineers can provide their knowledge to various government run projects in the role of technical experts and consultants. They can also work in private engineering companies that provide technical consultancy to both government and corporate firms.
These engineers can also hold high managerial positions in government as well as private sector organisations according to their field of expertise and educational qualifications.
Mechanical engineering is considered the ‘mother’ of all branches of engineering. In this context the roles and responsibilities held by a mechanical engineer are different and depend on their area of specialization and the industry they are working for.
In broad terms, the job profile of mechanical engineers can be classified into the following functional segments:
Research and Development (R&D): Engineers whose role is to do research and then plan for new machines and their constituent parts.
Design: Professionals whose responsibility is to draft technical drawings, manually or with the aid of computers.
Production: Engineers who supervise the manufacturing of mechanical components and machines.
Analysis and testing: Engineers who analyse and test different types of machines and their parts to ensure that they function flawlessly.
Installation: Professionals who install machines and mechanical parts at the client location.
Maintenance: Engineers whose primary role is to ensure that machinery is working as per specifications.

In the field of Computer Science & Engineering
Despite the fact that recent recession showed the worse days for computer engineers, a great hope still persists for Indian computer science professionals for the reason that India has potential to offer IT services at the fraction of the cost of the USA software developing companies. India has advantage in terms of IT professionals as it produces more in numbers than Western countries; therefore, the demand can be filled only with Indian professionals who are par excellence vis-a-vis computer professionals of the West. Indian IT companies such as Wipro, Infosys, TCS, Patni, HCL, etc. have been able to garner gains even during the recession and have hired a number of computer professionals.
Software Developers: Software developers are professionals who are concerned with facets of the software development process which involves activities such as design and coding, computer programming, project management, etc.
Hardware Engineers: These professionals do research, design, develop, test, and oversee the installation of computer hardware which inter alia includes computer chips, circuit boards, systems, modems, keyboards, and printers.
System Designer: Professionals involved in system designing, Logical & Physical Designing wherein logical designing can be enumerated as the structure & characteristics such as output, input, files, database & procedures, etc.
System Analyst: Computer engineers who work as systems analyst do research about the existing problems and plan solutions for the problem. They also recommend software and system related problems and coordinate development between business development teams.
Networking Engineers: Networking engineers are computer professionals involved in designing, implementation, and troubleshooting of computer networks.
DBA: DBA or Database Administrator are the professionals who are bestowed with the job to design, implement, maintain, and repair an organization’s database. Inter alia DBA professionals are also known as Database Coordinator or Database Programmer in IT sector.
In the field of Electrical Engineering
As an electrical engineer, you would work with high and low voltage equipment in a number of areas, including:transport networks, including rail electrification and signalling power generation, transmission and distribution renewable energy sources, such as solar paneling, hydroelectric and wind turbines manufacturing and construction building services, such as lighting, heating, ventilation and lift systems.
Your exact duties would depend on your industry, but could include:carrying out feasibility studies for new technical developments drawing up project plans and circuit diagrams, using computer-assisted engineering and design software estimating costs and project timescales coordinating the work of technicians and craftspeople testing installations and systems, and analysing test data making sure projects meet safety regulations overseeing inspection and maintenance programmes attending meetings, writing reports and giving presentations.
