If you get a good score then you can go directly to the interviews by applying to the reputed colleges in India as mentioned above i.e.IISC’s, IIT’s, NIT’s, BITS, universities, State colleges, etc. If your GATE rank lies in their cut-off score, then there is no need for an interview.

If your rank lies out of there cut-off range, then You need to pass through the interview. If you are selected in that interview, then you can get the admission in the preferred IISC’s, IIT’s, NIT’s.

If you have failed, then you need to apply for another college. This process can be applicable for all the reputed colleges in India which only depend from GATE Rank.

5.State Eligibility Tests for M-Tech:

If you don’t have a valid GATE score, then don’t worry. You can write any State Eligibility Tests for doing Masters in technology like PGCET(Telangana & Andhra Pradesh Board) and in other states, there are other Competitive exams to do the M-Tech in the reputed colleges.

After obtaining the master’s degree, you can enter into the Teaching Profession with the Designation called Assistant Professor where your minimum salary should be 18000 per month.

6.A Part from GATE Exam:

Apart from the GATE exam as well as going to higher studies, you can also do a job if you know the basic software’s in the field of mechanical engineering i.e. if you have knowledge in the field of Design,then your possibilities are very high in the market because Design Engineer has a huge value with high packages and for that you need to learn the following mechanical software’s.

If the above strategies cannot be worked out then you can be the Victim of Unemployment. Considering various Aspects, I have written the 7 Reasons for the Mechanical Engg.student to become a Victim of Unemployment and is as follows.

7 Reasons for the Mechanical Engg.student to become a Victim of Unemployment:

Whenever you say to anyone that I am a Mechanical Engineering student, then they will say, Arey Bhai “Yeh tho Evergreen Branch Hai”.Now to the current position, the mechanical engineering student thinks w.r.t. the stranger’s voice is “Kya baigan ka Evergreen hai”, No jobs, nothing.

  • Generally, Mechanical Engineering is called the mother of all the branches of Engineering because if you see, the mechanical engineering systems are basically equipped with Electrical, Software, Mechanical, Robotics, etc.
  • We(Mechanical Engineering Students) are strong enough to face any hurdles in life. We can stand in the hot weather, make our self dirty with oil and can do the work much more effective without any tiredness.
  • After, all these achievements embedded in the Mechanical Engineering student, they are still victims of Un-employment. How is this possible and what are the reasons for a Mechanical Engineering student to become the victim of unemployment was discussed in this article.

Top 7 Reasons for a Mechanical Engineering student to become the victim of Unemployment are as follows:

The 7 reasons for a Mechanical Engineering student are as follows:

1.Colleges or Universities behavior:

This plays an important role in the life of a Mechanical Engineering student. The exposure of every student depends upon the behavior of college only. If the college is unable to produce the best students, then it is the responsibility of the college to change their behavior to make the student as well as college successful.

Colleges or Universities behaviour-Mechanical Engineering

  • Most of the colleges are still using the old syllabus. They are not at all aware of the latest technology. Whereas private organizations can make their syllabus in their own way and which is far better than the Govt. colleges.
  • Moreover, the students cannot take active participation in various activities but they take passive participation in writing assignments, lab notes, lab records, etc. during their entire course.
  • In order to make the college and student success, the management has to change their behavior by providing the best syllabus and active participation in all the activities.

2.Waste of Time:

  • Most of the engineering students can waste their valuable time by chit chatting in the class, chatting on the WhatsApp, available 24 hours on facebook, etc.
Waste of Time-Mechanical Engineering
Waste of Time-Mechanical Engineering
  • If they use this time in any other activity, they can be successful. Consider me(Assistant Professor by Designation & Mechanical Blogger @ www.mechanicalstudents.com by passion). I had started my journey from Engineering Final year and recently I had credited an amount of $100 from Google Adsense. This has to be adopted away from our academic curriculum.
  • If they are unable to cope up with time, then they cannot stand in the real world.

3.Lack of Participation:

Lack of Participation-Mechanical Engineering
Lack of Participation-Mechanical Engineering
  • Apart from the theoretical, students have to explore their ideas to practical applications also.
  • For that, they should have to visit industries to understand in a better way.
  • The top colleges get permission very easily but the small colleges are unable to get permission and this makes the lack of participation in industrial applications.
  • Again, if the college stands in all the situations, then the Mechanical Engineering student can be successful at the initial stages itself.

4.Assignments:

  • The assignments are playing a big role in all the Engineering colleges today in India. Assignments are also present in other countries but there is no chance to be photocopied because each and every assignment is to be passed through a test.
Assignments-Mechanical Engineering
Assignments-Mechanical Engineering
  • If he/she takes below 25% of the information from (Google) or Textbooks then only the assignment is to be considered. Else it is not.
  • Whereas in India, we can take the photocopies of our friend and do the business of “Copy and Paste”.
  • From this, we can get nothing. But you can get the best reward of

 Knowledge =Zero;

 Effort =Physical Effort;

 Mental Effort =Zero;

 Time = Waste;

 Time saved = Zero.

5.Choosing Of Electives:

  • Mostly, electives are the one which can be useful for a Mechanical Engineering student to make his career successful because these electives may play a role in your job also.
Choosing Of Electives-Mechanical Engineering
Choosing Of Electives-Mechanical Engineering
  • But, most of the colleges do not ask the students about their interest, instead, they can choose any of the subjects to depend upon the faculty available.
  • By this how can the student be helpful?
  • If the management is closing the chance of choosing electives in their semesters.How the student can be successful. So, this has to be changed first.

6.Mechanical Designer Job:

  • If you ask any student of Mechanical Engineering about what do you want to become in your future then he will say “Sir, Mechanical Designer, sir”.
  • But considering the reality, only 2%-5% of the students can get the Mechanical Engineering job and rest of the Mechanical Engineering students are placed as Maintenance Engineer, Quality Control, Managers, etc.
Mechanical Designer Job-Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Designer Job-Mechanical Engineering
  • As they think that they are going to make their future as a designer, but they cannot find the needs to become a Mechanical Designer.
  • They just pass the time and they think that they will sit in AC rooms, draw some 2D sketches in AUTOCAD, etc. But, this does not hold good for a Mechanical Engineering Student.
  • So, their interest has to be changed w.r.t. any field in Mechanical Engineering. Then only they can survive else it is impossible to survive in Mechanical Engineering.

7.Marks:

  • Most of the engineering students can read one day before the examination and can get the marks very easily bypassing all the subjects.
  • They are very intelligent that they can crack any subject however the question paper it might be.
  • But, their knowledge is up to writing the question paper only. When the exam is completed they can forget everything.

  • When they go to the interview they cannot able to recollect the basic information also.
  • So, this has to be avoided by listening to the class lectures every day, writing the notes and paying attention to the latest technologies in their field.

So, these are the Top 7 Reasons for a Mechanical Engineering student to become the victim of Unemployment. If the Mechanical Engineering student focuses on all these reasons, then he might be able to pick any job of their interest in their core region.

Apart from that, You should have knowledge of how to participate in Group Discussions. Considering that, I had listed out some of the Do’s and Dont’s during Group Discussion and they are as follows.

4. Do’s and don’ts during a Group Discussion:

Group discussion is one of the turning point in the interview process which is conducted after the written test in the company. Many companies conduct group discussion to filter the candidates according to their requirement.

This is because, if the company wants to recruit for 10 posts, the applicants are in thousands and that’s the reason the company needs to filter the applicants by written test and by group discussion. The Recruiters mainly focus on your skills like confidence, communication skills and your ability to manage with a group.
