What is best career plan after completing graduation in b.tech (mechanical engineering)?



Well, after completing B.Tech in ME there are hell a lot of options for government jobs. The only thing you have to do is to have sound knowledge of mechanical engineering, i mean basic concepts and their application along with sound numerical solving capability which will come only by practice.

Here i’m listing some of the options.

Through GATE

  1. Get a decent rank in GATE (<500) and you surely will get an interview call from some of prestigious psu’s like BPCL, OIL, IOCL, NTPC, NHPC, OIL, GAIL, BHEL, MECL, MDL, NLC, NFL…….there are many more. All have a nice starting package (above 10 lac) and there is a provision for incentives and increments.
  2. For ranks around 500–900 you will get call from some of the companies, mostly oil companies.

P.S : Cutoffs are different for different companies and tend to vary year to year.

  1. If your GATE rank is less than 600 then you can get IIT’S . Pursue you M.tech and you can go for lectureship in polytechnic colleges. Get a phd and you can apply for the post of assistant professor in engineering colleges.
  2. If GATE rank is around 100–200, then go for M.tech from IISC. After your course completion you can go for placement in government research labs or for higher studies.

ESE (Engineering services exam)

This is an exam conducted by UPSC. People clearing this exam are the topmost technocrats of the country. Competition is very rigorous so you have to work very hard for clearing this examination.

State engineering services

Some of the states also conduct their own examination for the recruitment of Graduate engineer trainees. These exams are quite similar to ESE and are a bit less hectic comparatively. I can remember Telangana state recruited around 200 engineers through exam last year (maybe more).

Without GATE

There are many other psu’s which conduct their own examination for recruitment. Some of them are SAIL, VIZAG STEEL, ISRO, BARC, NPCIL etc.

Look out for their vacancies and prepare for exam.

So all the best for your endeavors.
