How do mechanical engineers start a job abroad?

Updated on : December 3, 2021 by Joel Lane



How do mechanical engineers start a job abroad?

It depends on the country you belong to, the best thing would be to try to study abroad and thus increase your chances of placement abroad. In developing countries like India, software development is on par with the international community. It is not the case of mechanical or civil. Therefore, getting a job directly abroad becomes difficult unless you are already engaged with big players in the domestic market, giving you a niche experience.

Well, if I have to talk about my own preferences, then I have a couple of options in my head.

I am Indian by birth. If I have to choose to stay closer to my roots and be loyal to my own homeland, I will certainly choose to live my entire life in India. It is here where I have my identity and the sense of choosing my nationality. .and I can make my decisions with a high level of freedom and without restrictions or extreme rigidity imposed on women unlike other nations. Here I have learned to respect and love my compatriot!

Well, if I have to talk about my own preferences, then I have a couple of options in my head.

I am Indian by birth. If I have to choose to stay closer to my roots and be loyal to my own homeland, I will certainly choose to live my entire life in India. It is here where I have my identity and the sense of choosing my nationality. .and I can make my decisions with a high level of freedom and without restrictions or extreme rigidity imposed on women unlike other nations. Here I have learned to respect and love my compatriot!

If I have to think about excelling in my career in a more professional way, then I can choose to settle in the USA and Germany.

I have to nurture and appeal to my aesthetic sense, then I can choose to spend the rest of my life on the European continent, maybe Spain, France, Italy or maybe Britain.

However, I find a safe place to live safely in my life. then I would rather choose Canada. Like Canada it is protected by two huge oceans and a frozen arctic and on all sides by the United States. They have no foreign enemies and they are one of the most peaceful countries. Crime is very low in Canada, even the lowest in the world; in fact, it is extremely difficult to obtain a gun license and concealed weapons are illegal.

Canada is a melting pot of cultures. an immigrant from all over the world comes and settles there ... no matter where you are from, you will find people of your own race, religion or ethnicity in Canada, it is easy to feel at home as there is little to no racism in canda. Canadians are very tolerant, friendly, trustworthy, they warmly welcome immigrants who come to settle there. I have a lot of respect for them.

I would prefer of all the above said is Canada. as I always dreamed of living there.

Future of mechanical engineering

Electric vehicles

Replacing the traditional internal combustion engine with cleaner battery-powered systems brings new challenges regarding torque and power loss, and the design of the mechatronics to support the new electrical system.

Additionally, as vehicle manufacturing becomes more automated, mechanical engineers will be front and center in robotics design and the assembly line.

Nanoengineering

Nanotechnology refers to the manipulation of materials at the smallest level. This rapidly growing field offers abundant opportunities for mechanical engineers.

In the coming years, mechanical engineers are expected to be an integral part of using nanotechnology to:

  • Create stronger composites
  • Develop superior renewable energy storage systems
  • Create advanced biomedical devices

Biomechatronics

The role of mechanical engineers in robotics advances even further with the rapid growth of biomechatronics. This field, which seeks to fuse body and machine, involves the design and testing of complex and intricate device architectures that mimic the musculoskeletal design of the body.

Mechanical engineers will be primarily involved in the design of mechanical sensors, controllers, and actuators for biomedical devices used in miniature medical prosthetics and implants. In addition to the medical field, research is also being carried out on the use of biomechatronics in the military industry.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing is a constantly evolving field. Increasing pressures to increase production efficiency and minimize operating costs have driven the demand for new and innovative technologies.

Automation and robotics, an area in which mechanical engineers are crucial. It remains essential in helping manufacturing industries keep up with consumer demand while maximizing profits.

What does not belong to engineering is a dead end.

For the people in the comment section asking the reason for the high unemployment of mechanical engineers. To answer the question

The problem of unemployment is not only of mechanical engineers, but of the entire industrial sector.

Many electrical engineers and electronic engineers are working in IT services like TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS, IBM, etc.

Many civil and mechanical engineers are working in banking services or taking coaching classes.

Some sell credit cards

The lucky ones go to the US, Germany and the Netherlands to pursue MS

The reason for this is that, after independence, the Indian economy has gradually shifted from the agricultural sector to the service sector (either formal or informal), leaving the industrial sector stagnant. "Normally, countries go from agriculture to industries and then to services, but India went directly to services and the development of an industrial base is 'skipped' and the workforce leaving agriculture was absorbed by the sector of Services The images below clarify the picture.

Consequently, the participation of the workforce in the industrial sector also remained stagnant.

However, the total number of engineering graduates each year has increased dramatically, leaving many graduates unemployed.

According to the 2019 National Employability Report Annual Engineers Report, roughly 80 percent of Indian engineering graduates are not employable in today's knowledge-driven economy. This signifies the pathetic condition of engineering education in India. Some important initiative in the direction of the quality of education is the need of the moment.

What are the future prospects for the industrial sector?

Our Government has already perceived that industrial and manufacturing growth is the best route for general economic development.

Make In India, Skill Development, Start-up India, Stand-up India, Entrepreneurship Skill Development Program are some of the examples.

Under Make in India, Momentum Sectors have been identified to provide a boost to Manufacturing and Start-up India to strengthen the startup ecosystem.

The Ease of Doing Business initiative aims to create an enabling environment by streamlining existing regulations and processes and eliminating unnecessary requirements and procedures.

Foreign direct investment policy and procedures have been progressively simplified and liberalized.

I hope the future industrial sector is bright, everyone will be employed!

Thank you Ayana Vini for pointing this out.

For people who claim that the rate of innovation in computing and electronics is much higher and there is very less innovation in mechanical engineering.

I agree that the rate of innovation in computing and electronics is far from that of mechanical engineering. I totally agree.

However, there is also a world beyond the computer. We can't eat data, we can't use the motherboard, and we can't brush our teeth with a transistor, and we can't drive a mouse.

What I mean is that for innovations in computing and electronics to be used we almost always have to have a foundation. Where will we use these innovations? We will use these innovations in electronics on a car, a robot, a drone, a rocket, a spaceship, an airplane, a helicopter, a fighter plane or any other equipment that should have the possibility of using mechanical engineering and we will be able to witness the innovations in these technologies. we can not?

The rate of innovations in computers and electronics is higher because they are new to humanity. Both emerged at the end of the 20th century and innovation has only just recovered in the last decade. Therefore, everything is new for us and we are able to perceive the small changes in it. Like after every 6 months, we see a new smartphone with some new technology. There are millions of applications that are released every day. We find it quite fascinating, right?

However, we have not been able to see the innovations in materials. We don't know about carbon fiber. We have ignored these innovations in biomechanics.

A South African Paralympic runner Oscar Pistorius running during the 2011 World Athletics Championships in Daegu, South Korea

We have no idea of ​​innovation in the field of fluid dynamics because we cannot feel it.

There are also innovations in mechanical engineering.

The world dreams of a flying car, a smart robot, smart machines, and smart materials.

There is a great innovation in nanotechnology, robotics, biomechanics.

And I hope that in the NEXT EPIDEMIC like the CORONA virus, our concern will be intelligent robots equipped with artificial intelligence (of course, the credit goes to computing), who will take the infected to hospitals and operate them.

And in the times to come, biotechnology will take over both computer science and electronic engineering as the world has begun to witness biological warfare.

Where as Mechanical Engineering will continue to grow slowly like a turtle!

So when you are bidding for the project among all the bidders, the project poster will see your portfolio and decide if you can do that project depending on the type of projects you have done or not and then he can offer you the job. .

You can also get local clients to work as a freelancer, as I am currently getting a job because I personally discovered and reached out to people offering jobs by showing them the quality of my work and my CAD and Design skills.

First of all, start getting a job as an apprentice. Once you have an identity in your market, you can start working for money.

See, working in an IT company is a mere interest that varies interpersonally. Obviously, one of my friends told me when they asked me a question: What priorities should a recent graduate in Mechanical Engineering have? With due diligence, he responded, "If lacs de mechies graduate each year and only thousands of openings are offered, where will the rest go?" That is why they prefer secondary companies.

Obviously, one of my friends told me when they asked me a question: What priorities should a recent graduate in Mechanical Engineering have? With due diligence, he responded, "If lacs de mechies graduate each year and only thousands of openings are offered, where will the rest go?" That is why they prefer secondary companies. Few reasons compel you to think about joining them:

  • You're not getting a main job because all they want is an experienced candidate (but stop! Where's that experience coming from until they hire you)
  • You are quite aware of your position in the next few years if you start comparing with those who got a job in the IT sectors at the same time.
  • You don't want to see an environment full of guys anymore (your graduate has already taken your 4 years, those could be awesome).
  • Growth in terms of wages, emoluments, etc. puts a cap on top jobs (a cooler sector in IT starts at 25k-30k which is what you get paid after having 1 year of experience)
  • Playing computers is much better than fighting huge machines (one hit from a mass-produced die-cutting assembly can cause you to go into cardiac arrest: p)
  • More often, mechanical engineering and computer science are a deadly combination.

So think about what is missing in the professional decision. If you're not satisfied with continuing to the core, just get a few certifications and get a huge salary in a paid IT job. And last but not least, let people recite your name.

In terms of industries, MEs are ... everywhere (useful, I know).

In terms of the job title or a 1,000-yard view of job responsibilities, a mechanical engineering graduate may be in design, maintenance, reliability, operations, project management, controls / instrumentation, patent law (if one enters to law school after graduation), construction (think HVAC), materials testing, etc.

I chose the design route and I work for a pulp and paper engineering design / consulting firm. I couldn't see myself in any other role. I enjoyed the design classes more than anything in school. I always (incorrectly) thought of a mechanical engineer as a gearhead type in an automotive / aerospace environment. I couldn't design a camshaft if my life depended on it (at least under a deadline). Your possibilities are many and varied. Getting classes on materials, controls, thermal / fluid systems, and machine design under your belt will give you an idea of ​​what interests you most.

Choosing ME as your specialty simply because your mind is geared towards it or because you would be good at it can lead to a lewd eye towards other careers / careers (not necessarily a bad thing). The curriculum is demanding, so you must be passionate about learning the theory behind it and loving problem solving (especially when your friends with lighter workloads are having fun while you work hard). It is a great career and very rewarding if you like to solve problems and stretch your mind technically. Good luck in whatever you choose. I changed careers a couple of times before choosing the one that worked best for me.

  • Mechanical engineering died in 2020, and every developed country in the world is reducing the admission of students to their mechanical engineering programs: Praveen Kumar Singh's answer to What does a mechanical engineer have to do to earn 1 lac per month?
  • Since Indian engineering curriculum is 40 years old, hence there is NO demand of any Indian engineering degree holders in any developed country of the world, and this is the reason that Indian education mafia has resorted to lies and deceit relating to placement stats of IIT graduates, just to keep running their engineering entrance exam coaching industry.

So, no Indian engineering graduate can get any engineering job in any developed country of the world, solely on the basis of his/her Indian engineering degree.


Solution: Praveen Kumar Singh's answer to How can I apply for abroad jobs? Which consultancy in India provides such platform?

There are numerous options for getting a job as a mechanical engineer in India and abroad, but it requires skills, knowledge, and sometimes contact and luck.
1- GATE: ensuring AIR up to 300 for the general category is enough to get a job at various PSUs and institutes such as ISRO, BARC, DRDO.

5-CSIR labs- They provide a wonderful opportunity to pursue Integrated m.tech and PhD and to be a scientist in respective field.
6-participating in various companies competition as if you win , they will directly hire you. Eg- Tata motors mindrover.

For getting a job I will recommend to add skills like AutoCAD or to pursue some online course on trending topics like digital manufacturing . These things separates you from crowd .

Getting job in foreign is not easy as they generally prefer workers from their own country especially in case of mechanical engineering . However by getting some experience and having some contact can find you one.

Boy, this is an open-ended question and the easy answer is “It depends”. I’ll give you a personal experience.

Start with the event of September 11, 2001 and the destruction of the WTC. The following months created a declining labor market. The company fired the entire engineering department. The last thing they needed was an engineer with a high-paying design team that cost a lot of money and produced more parts that the company couldn't sell. My wife and I discussed the situation and got to work driving a truck driving team. We drove 6 out of 7 days across the country. We were away from home

Wow, this is an open question and the easy answer is "It depends." I will give you a personal experience.

Start with the event on 9/11/2001 and the destruction of the WTC. The following months creating a falling job market. The company laid off it entire engineering dept. The last thing they needed was some engineer with high pay designing equipment that cost a lot of money that made more parts the company couldn’t sell. My wife and I discussed the situation and we went to work driving a over-the-road truck driving team. We drove 6 out 7 days and all over the country. We were away from home for 3 months at a time.

Before you jump to a wrong conclusion, we saw most of the US by driving to 49 states. We didn’t have time to buy anything because you stop to eat and that’s it. It took a couple of years before your training pay rose to a more typical level. After that you’re making more money you can’t spend. Two people were working way over 40 hr a week—more like 16 hr a day x 6 days or 96 hr a week. Now you don’t get overtime for working over 40 hr a week, but you make a lot of money you don’t have time to spend. We saved over $1200 a week.

I have to say that we were over 60 and getting ready to retire so we didn’t have any kids to take care of and almost no bills. We were saving $10,000 every 2 months. It’s a nice start to retirement.

We lucked into having a nice, friendly dispatcher who trusted us and left us alone. There was very little impact from a ‘boss’.

The bottom line from this is that we work for 4 more years and retire at age 65 or older. That added up nicely to our social security, along with my first years as an engineer.

For normal people:

Now I am 38 years old and I certainly feel that it is not JUST work that gives us satisfaction throughout life.

Years ago, when your job stabilizes (at least it seems so) and you become a father of children and a husband, work becomes a necessity. It's easy to take on these responsibilities if you have a secure job, that is, government. job. It doesn't mean you can sleep in the office, but you certainly won't be fired AT ANY TIME without ANY fault.

You should try to get a job in the government, regardless of whether you are a technician or not. Believe me, as you go up the ladder, the technicalities get less

It doesn't mean you can sleep in the office, but you certainly won't be fired AT ANY TIME without ANY fault.

You must try to secure a Govt job no matter it is technical or not. Believe me, as you go up the ladder, technicalities become lesser and managerial aspects take most of the platform.

For workaholics and money-savvy, highly ambitious persons:

BEWARE ! Your family life WILL be ( not May be) Ruined. You may get highest paid designation in a company of repute , but you will have to sacrifice. There is no such thing as Work-life Balance. You only have 24 hours in a day. Either you are a family man or a Workaholic/Power-savvy.

You can go to any field , Even Sky is not the limit. Best paid job is that of pilot, marine engineers etc
