I am a mechanical engineer, if I choose to enter the information technology sector, will I regret it later?

A true and personal answer. Different people may have different points of view.

Yes.

When you belong to the main sector and move to IT, there will be some of the following factors:

  1. IT jobs are highly paying: Initially, let's say that within 3-5 years of leaving high school, the salary may be higher for an IT engineer than for a Mech Engg. But a few years later, the salary in IT grows at a very slow rate compared to a Mech Engg.
  2. On-site opportunities - Yes, IT takes the lead here. But the opportunities are getting smaller and smaller with each passing day.
  3. Ease of Getting Jobs - It's easy to get a job in IT by comparison

  3. Ease of Getting Jobs - It's easy to get a job in IT compared to getting a job in the mainstream field, because most IT service providers hire wholesale.
  4. Location: yes, IT is more concentrated in Tier 1 cities in the country. But keep in mind that the quality of life in cities has decreased significantly. Traffic, water, pollution are some of the main problems that all big cities now face.

I am a mechanical engineer, but I choose to join an IT company directly from campus (for various reasons) and I regret the decision.

Evaluate yourself. You are the best judge of your career.

It is difficult for a third person to answer your question!

Whether you love your profession or hate it depends entirely on the person concerned, their interests, passions, etc.

If you hate sitting in front of computers all day or love the outdoors more than the indoors, I am 100% sure that you will definitely regret it if you choose the IT sector! On the other hand, if you love programming and / or are good with logic, you may not regret it.

The bottom line is that you just have to decide based on your likes / dislikes.
