From one of the article published in Economic Times,

A million engineers in India struggling to get placed in an extremely challenging market

Due to unavailability of Jobs in India –

  • Students graduating out of India's engineering colleges run the risk of being unemployed.
  • Others will take jobs well below their technical qualifications in a market where there are few jobs for India's overflowing technical talent pool.

Engineers Graduating V/S New Engineering Jobs (Demand Supply Gap)

  • According to data from AICTE, the regulator for technical education in India, there were 1,511 engineering colleges across India, graduating over 550,000 students back in 2006-07. Fuelled by fast growth, especially in the $110 billion outsourcing market, a raft of new colleges sprung up -- since then, the number of colleges and graduates have doubled.
  • A global economic slowdown may have only worsened what is already a bad problem. Even without this slowdown, there are a large number of students who won't get a jobs as estimates says that at best, there are 150,000-200,000 jobs generated annually in the Indian economy and far too many engineers attacking this labour pool.
  • According to multiple estimates, India trains around 1.5 million engineers, which is more than the US and China combined. However, two key industries hiring these engineers -- information technology and manufacturing -- are actually hiring fewer people than before
  • What's more, India's technical talent pool is also warped, with almost the same number of engineers as technical graduates from institutes such as ITI. "In developed markets, there is usually one engineer for every ten. This skew is only compounding the woes of engineers in India

Frustrated engineers are taking jobs for which they are overqualified and, therefore, underpaid.

The world of work is evolving... employers increasingly don't care what you know, they focus on what you can do with that knowledge

What Next - What is your strategy and action plan ?

After reading above facts

  1. Can we just rely on IT industries to get hired?
  2. Can manufacturing industries ever become capable to absorb the talent pool of engineers?
  3. Should we just wait and get frustrated and wait for our luck to work for us?

It is high time –

  • To look beyond the job hunting practice.
  • Not only to study engineering but also to explore what you can do with engineering knowledge.
  • To think how new opportunities can be created for engineers.
  • To think how engineers can overcome the above challenge and how can you contribute in same.
  • To collaborate with other engineers and engineering students to develop competency and capability to face the demand supply challenge
  • To think and act as an entrepreneur or to support others who are willing to lead as entrepreneurs.
  • To engage stakeholders to enhance capacity & capability which in turn can lead to convert innovative ideas into real manufacturing units.

We would request engineers to give a pause from daily routines and to give a sincere though on the challenge, Indian engineers are facing. We need to come together and to think for new solutions, innovation. We welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

You can make a difference and we are here to make it happen !!!

Are you ready ?


Area of Interest - The most important ingredient to success and it is the subject / field / topic / area of work of which we are passionate to learn more about. We feel like talking and discussing more about our interest . Here we are referring to Mechanical Engineering domain..

When we are student we find interest in some subjects like fluid mechanics or machine design and as we grow as an engineer we may have an interest in a particular industry like steel industry , cement industry or power plants...Some get into passion of learning software / ....

Quality control . energy audits , production planning are few other area of interest ..

The idea of this post is to understand our area of interest which will certainly help us to know you better - The area of interest may change based on time / learning/ gaining experience - Doesn't matter what has been the past or what will be the future - We welcome your thoughts / your area of interest in form of comments. It will be good if you can also add the same in your profile.


Dear Mechanical Engineers,

Year 2012 has been good one and we look forward to keep giving our services for mechanical engineering profession. Of course we will need your support and your active participation.

Please accept our new year wishes in form of blog entry

Great News is - We have evolved as a knowledge pool and we are now connected with 20 thousand mechanical engineers across the globe and you are already with us; Cheers to be together on the board.

Forums has been performing at its best - Time has come when members are willing to share their knowledge and experience and are learning to participate. Do check our forums

We have started a new blog "Mechanical Engineering questions" where we are asking a questions on a regular basis and members are collectively trying to answer the question. A perfect approach to improvise the answers and learning as a team. Do have a look on same.

Video lectures has been seen and appreciated but comments are not coming to discuss the content / teachings from professors...

Quiz section has been the revelation and members are loving the same. This section was started just few months back and still in testing phase. If you are among those who have still to take a quiz Do not wait - give an attempt.

Download section- So far only 48 files uploaded but total downloads for them has crossed the 40,000 mark. We expect other members will soon upload so that others can download the same.

In 2013

we would like our members to start blogging in field of mechanical engineering. Writing blog is one of the best way to share your passion/ experience and learning. We would like every one to take initiative and create their own blog at mechanical engineering forum

Your profile speaks about you - It is the first impression, so lets keep our profile up to date.

Some how we are not able to attract professors/ lecturers - may be as I am no more associated with engineering colleges. I have a request with students, if you can speak for same with professors and encourage them to be part of Mechanical engineering forum.

Last year, I had a talk through emails with couple of professors - but no one turned up on the board. But this is true, for academic- industry interface professors will play an important role. may be this is one area where I am failed. We will reattempt for same....

Please accept our sincere thanks for reading the latest update.

Look forward to meet you on the board

Cheers for mechanical engineering profession.
