Which province in Canada has the best reach for mechanical engineers?

Updated on : January 17, 2022 by Harvey Rose



Which province in Canada has the best reach for mechanical engineers?

I am not an engineer nor do I have experience in that field. Just being Canadian, I can assume that Ontario, the province with the largest population and largest industry and largest production, would have the greatest reach. Quebec would be a close second and then British Columbia.

Although all of Canada has a chance for mechanical engineers, but if you are looking for the best province, Ontario should be your first choice followed by Alberta.

Ontario offers a great opportunity for mechanical engineers.

Quebec and Ontario are classified and best suited to mechanical engineers.

Because, both provinces are the only home to Canada's most important cities: Toronto and Montreal.

Ontario

I lived in Canada for a year, did my master's degree, and am about to complete a doctorate in Germany. So I'll tell you what I wish I had known before I stayed. I did my master's degree in one of the most prestigious programs in Europe, Erasmus Mundus, and I had an offer from a Canadian university. However, since my master's supervisor liked me and offered me a full scholarship for a PhD, and since I knew German and loved Germany, I decided to stay. How I wish I hadn't done this!

So here is my answer. First of all, decide what you want. Immigration or title? Or immigration with a job in your field

I lived in Canada for a year, did my master's degree, and am about to complete a doctorate in Germany. So I'll tell you what I wish I had known before I stayed. I did my master's degree in one of the most prestigious programs in Europe, Erasmus Mundus, and I had an offer from a Canadian university. However, since my master's supervisor liked me and offered me a full scholarship for a PhD, and since I knew German and loved Germany, I decided to stay. How I wish I hadn't done this!

So here is my answer. First of all, decide what you want. Immigration or title? Or immigration with a job in your field. The last one is the most difficult. If you just want to immigrate, consider.

Canada (see the latest rules. Harper's government made some changes)

  1. Your eventual job is only one part of your application for permanent residence. You get points for the years you spend in Canada, your age, your knowledge of English and French, etc.
  2. Many Canadian provinces have provincial nomination programs. For example, if you complete a master's or doctorate in Ontario, you can apply for provincial nomination there. In short, your eventual job is only one part of your application for permanent residence.
  3. Canada is much more open to immigrants for historical reasons.

Germany

  1. Germany has traditionally NOT viewed international students as a source of immigrants. German postgraduate education aims at technology transfer. International students are subtly encouraged to make the mistake that Germany wants them as immigrants. They don't, but competition in the global higher education market is fierce and Germany therefore places many barriers to its immigration prospects. If you are honestly told that you are not welcome as immigrants, very few students would apply to study here.
  2. That is why Germany spends more on alumni networks, short-term scholarships for students who graduated from Germany and has, under the guise of "mobility conditions" clauses that are designed to discourage you from seeking permanent residence. For example, if you have done your PhD in Germany, you are not eligible for many postdocs. In the same way, you can get one of those return scholarships only if you've been out of the country for about a year, which effectively kills your chances in public relations.
  3. You don't get points for the years you spend here, your level of German, etc. The only thing that counts is getting a job where immigration, without clear rules, will agree to meet your qualifications.
  4. You are not allowed to search for work across the EU, which is at the core of EU mobility rules, however qualified you may be. That is only for EU citizens. You, who have the same qualifications and possibly pay much more, can look for work only in Germany and only in your field! You also have to show 8,000 euros in a blocked account. This fact alone shows how misleading EU higher education schemes are.
  5. Many students, not all, after an unsuccessful job search, opt for the doctorate. That really makes it worse. Do not do it! JUST DON'T DO IT. SALT. A German master's degree can take you to a Canadian university. Getting a job in Canada with a German PhD is much more difficult.
  6. If your goal is immigration to the EU, I think Sweden is a better option as they offer the offer to PhD graduates (see rules)
  7. It is not your qualifications or your level of language proficiency that counts in Europe, it is your passport. Never forget this. That is why many international students simply marry a German to stay. Once you get residency, it's easy. Even if you can't find a job in your own field, you can stay.
  8. Have you ever wondered why there is so much social exclusion among second generation immigrants in Germany and other countries? After all, they are fluent in German and have no residency problems, yet they struggle to find a job. What is an international student with unstable German compared to them?

In summary, here is my advice. If you are thinking of Germany, think again. If you are doing a master's degree here and want to immigrate, look at the countries that do not link immigration to a particular job. Canada and Sweden I think are good options (see latest rules. They keep changing) for a PhD leading to permanent residence. If you are in the doctorate in Germany, I do not know. Pray.

They hire you based on your title, which is a fact. They hire you for your skills. What can you actually do to get the business done? If you are from a developing country, you need 5-10 years of experience with a track record of achievement (nobody cares about your seniority or title) doing real world things.

Also note that almost all mechanical engineering in Canada is done in southern Ontario and some in Montreal and Alberta.

If you are a recent graduate and have not gained experience while in school or have not done extensive lab work (as offered by Canadian universities), then

They hire you based on your title, which is a fact. They hire you for your skills. What can you actually do to get the business done? If you are from a developing country, you need 5-10 years of experience with a track record of achievement (nobody cares about your seniority or title) doing real world things.

Also note that almost all mechanical engineering in Canada is done in southern Ontario and some in Montreal and Alberta.

If you are a recent graduate and have not gained experience while in school or have not done extensive lab work (as offered by Canadian universities), then you will not get time of day from companies. Your title is just a ticket to be interviewed. What you know how to do helps you work.

Here, a mechanical engineering student is expected to be close to a CAD software expert, have done some design work on their own on their own computers, maybe have done their own car repairs, have a reasonable set of tools manuals, have experience with power tools and a love of engineering and didn't go in because their parents pressured them just for the money.

Myself, as an electronic engineer, I started 3 weeks before graduating in aviation electronics. I have been building electronics since 15 years, built my own amplifiers for my stereo, designed and sold various lighting control units for nightclubs, kept a car insured and running from repairing electronic products for other people and repairing their cars, wrote a column. in audio for the campus newspaper, I worked in sound and telecine in my high school television studio, and among other things, I was a self-taught aviation expert. I also had my own tools, a multimeter, and an oscilloscope. So when they were interviewed, they looked at some of the aircraft types and we had a great discussion about aviation.

My point from all of this is what employers expect to see from a new engineering graduate here in Canada. I was able to do a job my first day that generated income for the company.

When I've hired engineers since then, I immediately ask them what kinds of projects they've worked on just for fun. I have turned down USC graduates who did nothing other than what the school asked them to do in favor of candidates from much smaller schools who actually build something for the fun of it.

Can you see why “newbies” from developing countries are being ignored? But if you have hobby experience, that counts as Canadian experience. In mechanics, you should at least have some free CAD programs on your computer to show off some of your ideas. We want to see your touch-ups. It is important. We take its title for granted. Tell us about your passion for engineering and the things you have noticed you need to do. But if you don't actually have a computer of your own, and I've seen this, where they only used machines from the school, you will be politely fired.

In a high-wage country like Canada, employers simply can't afford to spend 2-3 years before a new engineer is useful.

Here, a new engineer we hired from UBC developed his first marketable product a year after starting with us. Until then they were designing subsets. Maybe in Asia they can afford to pay people for a few years to get better, but in Canada we can't afford that.

I could go on much longer, but I hope you get the idea,

The field in which you will get your next job.

A registered mechanical engineer is practically guaranteed a job, wherever he goes. There is practically no unemployment among them.

If you graduated with an engineering degree and joined an engineering association as a registered professional engineer, you will instantly become a member of one of the highest paid and respected professions in the country.

This is what you have to do:

Become P.Eng. / License requirements

I hope you read that website with great care and knowledge. It requires some very serious and even mandatory qualifications

The field in which you will get your next job.

A registered mechanical engineer is practically guaranteed a job, wherever he goes. There is practically no unemployment among them.

If you graduated with an engineering degree and joined an engineering association as a registered professional engineer, you will instantly become a member of one of the highest paid and respected professions in the country.

This is what you have to do:

Become P.Eng. / License requirements

I hope you read that website with great care and knowledge. It requires some very serious qualifications and even compulsory additional studies. You must also immigrate to Canada.

Don't even think about looking for work just yet.

The whole process is configured for self-service. Here is the full set of instructions.

Canada prefers young and well-educated immigrants. If so, your path will be short and sweet.

Try your luck on the fast track first. This can grant you a permanent residence visa in as little as a few months, if it's really good:

Immigrate as a skilled worker through Express Entry

If this fails you, and you will know in the first ten minutes, then it is the long and hard road. Start your process here:

Do you want to come to Canada or extend your stay?

Every step is explained and clear. Just answer ALL questions honestly.

Be patient, it takes one to five YEARS to get a visa. Any visa costs around CAD 2,000. You must also show that you have CAD 12,300 for yourself, more for a family, BEFORE you get a visa.

There are no short cuts. Don't waste your money on agents, lawyers, or consultants. (I said that.) All they do is take your money and some may even delay the process so they can charge you even more.

Looking for work doesn't make sense. No Canadian company will review your resume before you are in the country on a visa. Canada is a country of well-educated people. 53% of all working-age Canadians have at least a bachelor's degree, which is the highest rate in the world. I doubt that his skills are interesting and unique enough for someone to choose him over a candidate who is close.

Eligibility requirements

Canada

For undergraduate courses (UG), you must have completed 12 years of schooling. To gain admission, you must take the SAT exam. The duration of the degree courses is four years and that of a diploma two to three years.

In postgraduate (PG) courses, gaining admission to vocational training courses is easier as the admission criteria are much more relaxed. To gain admission to management degrees, you will have to take the GMAT, and for engineering degrees, you must take the GRE exam.

The concept of boundaries does not apply to Canadian universities. Universities provide accepted average scores for different courses on their websites. That will give you an idea of ​​what is considered a good score. You will also need to take language tests such as TOEFL or IELTS, regardless of the title. There are some universities that may not require a language test for Indian students, but it is advisable that you provide the TOEFL or IELTS anyway as they are important for obtaining a visa. If the visa interviewer is unsure of your speaking skills, they may not grant you the visa.

Australia

For UG courses in Australia, almost all universities require 12 years of pre-university education, making it easy for Indian students to gain admission directly to the course / degree of their choice.

In PG courses, you can earn admissions after completing a three-year UG degree. For engineering, you will need a four-year college degree in engineering. To gain admission to management courses, you will need to take the GMAT, and for science courses, you may need to take the GRE exam.

You may not be required to have work experience in the case of management courses at some universities. In the case of no work experience, you must enroll in a graduate certificate or graduate diploma program. The university may waive the TOEFL or IELTS test, but they are important to obtain a visa.

Cost of living

The total cost of studying and living in Canada and Australia depends on many factors, such as university, course, and location.

Visa process:

Canada

The Canadian student visa has the following regulations:

  • You must apply for the graduate work permit within 90 days after completing your studies.
  • The Canadian visa application process requires a mandatory medical test for Indian applicants.
  • Spouses can also work full time if their stay is one year or more.
  • It costs $ 150 to apply for this visa.
  • You cannot work more than 20 hours a week. During vacations, breaks and summer sessions, the student can work up to 40 hours per week.

Australia

For this visa, these rules apply:

  • The Australian student visa is not issued in the form of a tag.
  • It costs $ 535 to apply for this visa.
  • Spouses become dependent only if the student is pursuing a master's or doctorate. Spouses of master's and doctoral students can work unlimited hours.
  • Student visa holders can work up to 40 hours per fortnight during their studies in Australia.

Post-study work permit:

Canada

The Canadian Graduate Work Visa allows students graduating from any post-secondary institute to work after studying for an additional period of time depending on the duration of their course up to a maximum of three years. Under this work permit, the student can work in any field or industry.

Australia

Graduates who have completed a bachelor's degree, a master's degree may be eligible to apply for a two-year post-study work visa. Other graduates may be eligible to apply for an 18-month 485 subclass visa through the graduate workflow.

Employment opportunities:

Canada

Jobs as a nurse practitioner, program analyst, teacher, pharmacist, financial manager, construction manager, etc. are some of the most sought after positions in Canada.

Australia

The main jobs in Australia are education, medical services, hotel industry, computer systems design, accounting, etc.
Note: The Indian concept of on-campus placements and on-campus recruitment does not apply to foreign universities. Students are expected to seek internships and jobs on their own.

Permanent residency opportunities:

Canada

During this post-graduation work permit period, you can apply for permanent residence in the Canadian Experience Class. Since the country is sparsely populated, there is a shortage of highly skilled employees. Compared to most other countries, getting public relations in Canada is very easy.

Australia

Obtaining a permanent residence permit in Australia is possible, but it is a long process. Immigration officials conduct a thorough background check on the candidate to make sure they are not fraudulent. Due to the complicated process, the PR permit may take some time to be approved, but it is possible to obtain Australian citizenship.

Scholarships

Abroad, most universities have a provision of financial aid. You can find out about the scholarships offered by your university through its Financial Aid department. Besides universities, there are many scholarships available for organizations, funds, etc. Here are some scholarships for Indian students interested in studying in Canada or Australia.

Canada Scholarships:

International research links funded by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada

University of Adelaide Ashok Khurana Scholarship for Indian Students

Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships Funded by the Government of Canada

According to the Canadian government analysis, the job prospects in the mechanical engineer occupation are good.

In recent years, the number of mechanical engineers increased significantly. These flows coincide with the growth of employment in the industries in which they work relatively closely. As growth is expected in these industries, the number of mechanical engineers should increase slightly in the coming years.

Sources of employment

Opportunities will primarily come from vacant positions for mechanical engineers who will retire or get promoted to managerial positions (particularly Manufacturing Managers, see 0911) and sometimes jobs related to technical consulting, sales and marketing (see for example: 6221 Technical Specialists in sales, Wholesale trade). This career path is reflected in data from the 2011 National Household Survey, which shows that the proportion of mechanical engineers aged 45 and over was much lower than that of the workforce as a whole (31% compared to 44% ). In addition, other opportunities will result from increased employment.

Industries

According to data from the National Household Survey, in 2011 around 42% of all mechanical engineers worked in the manufacturing sector, mainly in transport equipment (16%) and in machinery manufacturing (10%), and 27% in engineering offices. Significant quantities were also found in trade (5%).

Trends

Job growth in this occupation is based primarily on trends affecting the manufacturing sector. Considering that a large majority of mechanical engineering contracts for engineering offices originate in the manufacturing sector, it can be considered that around three-quarters of the jobs in this occupation are related to this sector.
