Where does someone land, after finishing B.Tech in 'Mechanical Engineering' from an IIT?

Anywhere.

You may end up being placed with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and other companies with a software profile if you show them that you are good enough.
Maybe at Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, American Express, Capital One, Credit Suisse, etc., investment banking firms, and data analytics firms, if you're good at it.
Maybe at a major company like HUL, ITC, Rolls Royce, etc., if you performed well in your department.
Maybe in startups liye Oyo Rooms, Tiny owl, Doodleblue, etc.

In IITs, your department does not influence your location (most of the cases) as long as you are good at what you want to do and show hiring officials that you are right for them.

Good question. I have been pondering about it for quite some time. Here is my answer and I am proud to be a part of this lot:

IIT Guwahati - B.Tech Mechanical 2009-2013 Lot (Strength - 67):

  1. PhD candidate / pursuing a master's / doctoral degree in the US, Europe: 25–30
  2. Master / PhD in IISc: 3
  3. Entrepreneurship: 7-8
  4. Indian Engineering Services: 3
  5. Indian Police Service: 1
  6. PSU (IOCL / HPCL): 9–10
  7. Top Private Companies in India: 2-3
  8. Data Scientist: 1–2
  9. Physics Teachers (The Rich): 2–3

Some are still pursuing their dream of being a part of the elite Indian civil services / Indian engineering services or should I say they are in the works.

If you do an MBA in marketing, you will land in the automotive industry. U can be workshop service engineers after BTech

The answer is the inverted question.

Your country has failed you.

Graduate level skills can only be used profitably when you do design and development work.

There is still little of that in India.

Every time ISRO successfully launches something, our Prime Minister celebrates.

That has been going on for over 30 years.

The pity is, that's the ONLY engineering achievement you can celebrate - there's nothing else!

A few government labs conducting research / development simply cannot provide the scope to productively employ talented graduates (postgraduates).

And our own Ambani has made a price

Every time ISRO successfully launches something, our Prime Minister celebrates.

That has been going on for over 30 years.

The pity is, that's the ONLY engineering achievement you can celebrate - there's nothing else!

A few government labs conducting research / development simply cannot provide the scope to productively employ talented graduates (postgraduates).

And our own Ambani has done very little in this direction.

They talk about the world going global. That means research and development can also go global and can be done where it is least costly.

Take an example from the USA.

Aiming to serve an underserved short-haul and inexpensive air transport market, Zunum Aero formally launched the development of a six- to 12-seat electric hybrid design on October 5, promising to deliver the aircraft in five years.

The low-wing, V-tail aircraft aims to provide air travel on routes up to 700 nm (1,300 km) for a seat-mile economy equivalent to a 78-seat Bombardier Q400 turboprop, says company founder Ashish Kumar. .

That's the kind of business risk that creates jobs for aeronautics and mechanics specialists. And the beginner is a person of Indian origin!

Ashish points out that the auto industry has more to worry about in its planned development than manufacturers of regional turboprops or small regional jets, as cars, not airplanes, account for the vast majority of all trips below 300nm. "The people who should be afraid are the ones who make cars," he says.

But the regional aircraft market is also ready to be disrupted, he says. "The regional market is largely flying on technology from the sixties, seventies and eighties."

With financial backing from Boeing HorizonX, JetBlue Technology Ventures and the Washington State Green Energy Fund, Zunum seeks to modernize the regional aircraft by inserting a hybrid-electric propulsion system to reduce operating costs by 40-80%.

That is the type of ecosystem we need.

Another similar company, Wright Electric, a startup, is building a commercial airliner that runs on batteries and can handle flights of less than 300 miles. These short haul trips account for 30 percent of all flights and is a $ 26 billion market in the US Wright Electric announced that it is building a 150-seat aircraft to revolutionize the 737 market. with the budget British airline EasyJet, which could put your design in the air.

Wright Electric hired a team that had previously been funded by NASA to investigate the potential of electric airplanes, which co-founder Jeff Engler says puts the startup years ahead of the competition.

▲ Wright Electric Co-Founder Jeff Engler presents at Y Combinator Demo Day.

They are totally unknown companies. They are boldly pitted against Boeing, Airbus, ATR and Bombardier.

They could fail. Never mind. It's war now. One soldier falls: another takes his place. The fight continues.

Times have changed, and this is the time for our money bags to change.

We have the boys and girls.

They know the tools and have the skills to use them.

Will our state governments fund these kinds of startups? They are all bankrupt.

Will our greedy business "leaders" fund such startups? I want to leave that avenue open. Perhaps there is a change of mind.

Maybe.

You obtain a BSME or the equivalent in your home country. You make sure your university has the proper credentials so that your degree means something. Make sure you have done a cooperative or an internship before graduating. This experience is very helpful in outperforming other candidates for entry-level positions.

I would advise you to pass the minimum threshold of 3.0 GPA. This opens up additional opportunities for entry-level positions. You can get a job with a lower GPA and still have a nice career, but why make it harder for yourself than it needs to be?

Attend job fairs and use your college degree.

You obtain a BSME or the equivalent in your home country. You make sure your university has the proper credentials so that your degree means something.

I would advise you to pass the minimum threshold of 3.0 GPA. This opens up additional opportunities for entry-level positions. You can get a job with a lower GPA and still have a nice career, but why make it harder for yourself than it needs to be?

Attend job fairs and make the most of your college's career center. Create a draft resume and ask your professional connections counselor to review it (if you have one). Buy a formal business attire, something that will make you look good.

You are ready to start applying to companies. Always, always write a cover letter. Keep it short and concise, while still having grammar and spelling errors. Tailor this cover letter to each job you apply for. Make sure your audience can clearly understand why YOU are the candidate they need. You want to present an aura of kind confidence. Don't be discouraged if the phone doesn't ring off the hook.

Eventually, if you've done your due diligence, you will have a chance to sit face-to-face with a hiring manager. This individual, most of the time, is extraordinarily well versed in his business. They have likely been doing their job for years to earn their rank. Also, if they come from an engineering background, they will be able to assess the validity of their answers.

Don't try to lie or pose as an expert where you are not. It's an entry-level position and they don't expect you to be a master at your craft. Get familiar with what the company does and be sure to review the details of the job closely. Ask a series of pertinent questions and distribute them appropriately for your interviewer. Some of these will be a barrage of questions for you, others may be more conversational.

During the interview, be sure to relax. This event is not a life or breakup situation, no matter who it is for. Let them see you as comfortable, assertive, and anxious. This will go a long way towards getting an offer.

Always read the crowd and understand what you are dealing with. In two interviews I had, I ended up making a joke in the middle to get the conversation going. They are not necessarily looking for the best engineer. They look for the best fit. They want someone they can turn into a strong engineer and they won't cause conflict in their department.

If you can be competent and personable, it will go a long way toward getting the job.

To give you an example ... at our university ... at IIT (BHU) Varanasi ... a senior Rahul Ajay Deshpande ... went to IIT KANPUR for MTech at Aero Engg ... then another Yash Shah, Former President of the Mech Engg Society, goes to TUDelft in Holland to do a master's degree in aerospace engineering ...

Speaking of myself ... I am also interested in aerospace engineering masters after my B.Tech ... I am currently in the second year of mech ... and I am doing my internship at Aerospace Engg at IISc Bangalore for 2 months. .. so you can also do internships in that field to get a basic idea of ​​that ... there are numerous examples ... I only know some of them ...

so this is the essence of Mech Engg ... if you can really use the resources present in Mech Engg ... you can be wherever you want ... it just depends on your interest with a total commitment towards that field ... That's it on my side ...
ALL THE BEST for your future ..... !!!

See, getting a good job means getting a decent amount of money, at least for me. And for that you will have to do many things during these 4 years of B.Tech.

Frankly, not only in mechanics but in CS, IT, ECE, etc… they are also deprived of good jobs. There are so many graduates each year and fewer vacancies that can meet your expectations.

So what you have to do is focus on your studies, don't try to learn everything, but you will have your favorites. You have to delve into your favorite topics. Make them your "alter ego". Try to think in a practical way rather than just theoretically.

The average package of a BTech student looking for a basic mechanical job is around 8 LPA.

Please note that there are only a few major companies that allow all BTech, MTech / Dual Degree students together. In such cases, the salary is usually more for MTech / Dual than for BTech.

There are companies that do not allow MTechs / dual. The package for BTech is usually on the upper side, which can be roughly 8-10 LPA.

The maximum salary, as Saumya Gupta mentions, is limited to very few companies like Schlumberger. But keep in mind that there are only a couple of companies that offer you such attractive packages, ot

The maximum salary, as Saumya Gupta mentions, is limited to very few companies like Schlumberger. But keep in mind that there are only a couple of companies that offer you such attractive packages; otherwise you cannot expect a very high salary in mechanical core companies unlike in IT / CSE core jobs.

Companies like GE, GM, EATON, etc. do not allow BTechs but only MS / MTech / Dual. I am assuming GE offered 8.5 LPA, GM about 7 LPA, and EATON about 9 LPA. AIRBUS offers around 12-15 LPAs, but select only one MTech or MS pair. HERO, HONDA recruits all BTech (7-7.5 LPA) and MTech / Duals (8-9 LPA).

I am writing this answer assuming you have just finished your Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from India and are exploring your future options in core mechanical engineering in India.
You must have asked yourself this question many times at some point in your life. In India you are not judged by what you have studied, but by what you do after completing your education. Society is more concerned with the job and the salary you get after your education and not with the intellectual property that you have earned.
You have 2 options after mechanical engineering.

You have 2 options after mechanical engineering.
1) Higher education:
If you want to enter the field of research or teaching, look for a better institute's M.Tech. Completing the GATE exam with a good score will get you to IIT and NIT, but if you want to go abroad for higher studies, prepare for GRE, IELTS.
2)
Job First's priority should be your responsibilities. If you feel that your family needs your support, it is your duty to take care of their needs first. If everything is fixed, do what you always wanted.

> 8 is generally the minimum requirement.
> 9 is ideal.
<8 doesn't eliminate your chances, it just makes your chances of getting help more difficult.
To compete with other applicants, you will have to do some good original research or an excellent track record in your internships or other similar test of your talent.
Also, lower the GPA, more stress on you to produce an extraordinary score on GRE.
In general, 8.5 plus 320/340 in GRE is what you need for a good college master's degree with a decent funding percentage (> 40%).
If you are thinking of MIT-Stanford, etc., then 9 plus 332/340 or 8.

Annoy everyone else by telling them they're from IIT and how cool they are and how they can wear popular t-shirts and get free publicity!

Oh wait! They do it even before they graduate!

PS: I'm not against them, they are smart indeed, but that doesn't make anyone else any less smart!

#Note: I know this won't come out as it will collapse soon, but I hope it doesn't hurt anyone. Don't take it personally!
