Hottest and Newly Emerging Engineering Jobs in India – Excellent Prospect for Future Engineers!
This is not an unknown fact that engineers are undoubtedly one of the best paid professionals across the world. In the past ten years, not only the number of engineering graduates has increased remarkably, but also the advent of fields and sectors to work in has multiplied. Thanks to the tech boom! For aspirants who manage not to fit in the box and really love to work out of it, here is a list of eight hot jobs, which will help them break into the new fields of engineering. Have a look at the jobs below –
3D Printing – Some of the biggest industries in India are already applying it for design visualization and optimization. Thus 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that is sprawling in almost all modern work arenas. The most important feature of this profession is that it enables manufacturing to be nearer to its markets and customers and one does not need those huge factories with manufacturing setups.
Even the traditional Indian jewellery houses have now started deploying it for creating ornaments with complex design patterns.
Energy systems – Energy Systems Engineering is a multidisciplinary programme, which aims to meet the current and growing challenge of declining fossil fuel resources and the demand for alternative, renewable energy sources as a whole. This energy system program covers engineering knowledge and skills in areas such as conversion, energy generation, electrical power systems and energy management. Not just this, but it also enables individuals in understanding of the global and local impact of energy conversion and distribution in a system, so as to influence public policy decisions in the long run.
UAV developments – This is interesting. An unmanned aerial vehicle generally known as a drone is growing in huge popularity with some of the top online companies for a swift delivery of the ordered goods to the customers. Because of this, jobs and careers in UAV domain continue to increase.
These UAV applications are used in numerous missions and some of them include the aerial imagery for counter operations during terrorist attacks, civil and military purposes, surveillance of disaster-prone areas, environmental studies, and many other functions where in- depth operations are essential.
Advanced Materials – The field of advanced materials originally germinates from the research offerings in chemistry and physics. This domain essentially involves characterization, processing and synthesis of advanced materials to understand their original properties. Advanced materials engineering decisively works on high- end research equipment like the NMR (Nuclear magnetic resonance) and TEM (Transmission electron microscopy), which is applicable in the healthcare industry. Although it is a niche course some of the foremost world universities offer postgraduate courses in advanced materials for chemical engineers and others.
Fuel Cells – Fuel cell is one of the highly emerging specialized fields of chemical engineering. Fuel cells converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity, via a chemical reaction with oxygen or another oxidizing agent. This emerging fuel cells engineering is most often directed at making options that consume minimal power at extreme conditions and supply the maximum output of temperature by using new- age materials. Those engineers who are looking to take this as a career choice will be most probably recruited at energy and automobile companies.
Nanotech – This is also a highly desired field of the new generation engineers. Nanotechnology engineering is a multi- specialized engineering field which simultaneously draws benefits in areas such as materials engineering, science, biology, chemistry, and physics. Indeed, it’s all about creating new technology by unleashing the potential of materials at nanoscale. Hence, a degree in the field of nanotechnology will provide engineers a practical education in key areas of nanotechnology, which will include the fundamental physics, chemistry, engineering of nanostructures, as well as the theories and techniques used to design, model, fabricate or characterize these technologies.
Robotics – If not now, we all know that robots will play a greater part in providing services in the near future. Actually, creating robots might be an expensive affair and some high- end models might cost as much as an economy car, but that won’t stop individuals from seizing the opportunity the profession has to offer in future times. The coming together of computer, mechanical and electrical engineering principles has created a strong foundation for engineering in robotics field. To justify this, we may say that surgeries in healthcare are now assisted by robotic equipment for invasiveness accuracy, and high efficiency.
Simulation Tools – Simulation technology is an engineering concept that enables replication of the phenomenon based on certain mathematical programmes and formulae. Simulation software is extensively used design equipment so that the final product would be really close to design specs without turning expensive in frequent process modification.
So the would be engineers who are thinking of a career in simulation engineering could be a great bet, as there is in an array of industries they can choose from. These include the gaming, healthcare, manufacturing, automobile and transportation industries.
