Here's why Polytechnic students make better Engineers

THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF ENGINEERING

Engineering is defined as a combination of science and art of applying skills of physics, mathematics, and technology for the betterment of mankind. Regarded as a noble profession, engineers are respected and valued all around the globe as they connect the society with science. Engineering is not only about learning the different principles, laws, and formulae but the ability to apply the factual knowledge for simpler day to day lives of humans.

An engineer must be well endowed with a trained technical mind and knowledge to gain value and demand. Technical skills and knowledge is of utmost importance and in today’s age not underestimated in the least. If you are an engineer with above par knowledge and a set of technical skills, there is no doubt you will be held in high regard.

THE TWO PATHS TO GRADUATION IN ENGINEERING

According to the present scenario, the stream of engineering is a hot favourite. There are two different ways to graduate in engineering. One is to pursue engineering after the higher secondary exams, i.e. 12th board exams.

Another way is to opt for a diploma in the preferred branch of engineering. Diploma courses are offered by polytechnic colleges in India. In this diploma course, students get three years of education in the branch of engineering they prefer. This is then followed by three years graduation course of engineering.


POLYTECHNIC STUDENTS: BETTER ENGINEERS

In the higher secondary education, students receive two years of science education, viz. physics, chemistry, and mathematics after which they are admitted into the engineering colleges where they receive four years of engineering education. In the case of polytechnics, during the course of all 6 years of diploma and engineering, students obtain theoretical knowledge as well as core technical knowledge and hands-on experience.

The subjects polytechnic students are taught are almost similar to the subjects included in the engineering curriculum but simpler. This helps in building a strong foundation of the learning process. Also, the education received by the students during their higher secondary is not very application oriented whereas, polytechnic students follow a curriculum which is application based.

It is safe to say that polytechnic students make better engineers as they obtain more practical knowledge and experience. When they set foot in the industry, complete with a technically sound mind and brain, they are priority candidates for core technical industries. Why? Because with a trained technical mind comes an ability to work more efficiently to solve problems and provide solutions at a faster speed and thus deliver better results.

How to become a successful Mechanical Engineer?

One of the most expansive and lucrative engineering fields today is mechanical engineering. With skyscrapers going up in all parts of the world, to the constant demand for housing, mech engineers are a valued breed. However, there is more to being an excellent mechanical engineering than just being good in science and mathematics. Whether you are a fresh engineering graduate or have been hired as a mechanical engineering officer with tons of experience, the tips shared here will surely help you move forward in your profession.

1. Be technically sound

It is imperative you become technically sound in your field. Even if you plan to become an engineering manager at a young age, it is still important that you understand the technical aspect of your field to best be able to manage staff and speak with prospective and current clients.

2. Gain experience as a mechanical engineer

As long as you go out there and start developing your Mechanical Engineering skills by doing internships, taking part-time jobs, volunteering, or shadowing professionals, you have the best chance of not only graduating with a great degree but also with practical insight about how to get the job done. 

3. Be a part of the innovation pipelines

Always be open to new ideas, even if they come from sources outside your group. Companies are always looking for engineers who bring creativity and innovation to the job.

4. Never say no to opportunities

As the saying goes “Opportunity never knocks on the door twice!”, don’t resist any opportunity coming your way even if you think it is out of your scope. Grab every chance you get to improve your career.

5. Improve your communication skills

Many engineers prefer to stick to the technical design track, while others branch off into management roles. Whichever field you choose, you need to be comfortable talking to your colleagues, seniors or even the customers. Developing ‘soft skills’ is vital for engineers irrespective of what field they are in.

Mechanical engineering is a field changing so quickly, that you may study things in your final year that was thought almost unfeasible in the first year. If that excites you, give Mech Engineering a serious thought.

An overview of engineering and its future scope

“Engineering” literally means “making things happen”. In a very basic sense, engineering is the practical application of science and mathematics to solve problems. Traditionally, engineering is about infrastructure.

In today’s world, engineering is acknowledged as a discipline that opens up opportunities and creates technology and products that help make our lives easier. Almost every aspect in our lives has somehow been influenced by engineers – the products created in factories; the buildings we live in; the water we drink; the computers we surf the net on; medical services and technologies we rely on; the appliances and vehicles. There is no limit to what engineers can do.
Every year around 3 lakh engineers pass out from top engineering colleges in Maharashtra.

Here are some reasons why you should consider pursuing engineering as a career:

1. Hands-on Work

As an engineer, you’ll most likely at some point get to get your hands dirty. If you like being hands-on and working with machines, electronics or even in labs, engineering is a great fit.

2. Plenty of career opportunities

There are plenty of career opportunities for engineering graduates to look forward to. Engineering isn’t just a single course focused on a single industry. There are specializations you can pursue depending on where your passion lies. It’s entirely up to you to decide and explore which field would make good use of your skills and talents.

3. Work in different departments

If you hold a particular engineering degree, that doesn’t mean you can’t transfer and work in a completely different one. Engineering graduates can work wherever they like regardless of their field of study.

4. Compensation

Its not secret that engineering jobs are some of the best paid positions even for those holding just a Bachelor’s degree. Most engineers approach a six-figure salary in their careers. 

5. Opportunity to travel the world

There are engineering jobs all over the world. You can literally work wherever you desire or travel as you would like.

6. Make a difference

If you want to come home at the end of the day and feel like you have made a difference, most engineering professions provide a great avenue for helping other. So, whatever you care about the most, there will be some engineering involved.

Amrutvahini College of Engineering (AVCOE) is one of the best engineering college in Maharashtra. Established in 1983, it has been accredited three times by NBA, New Delhi and graded ‘A’ by NAAC and Government of Maharashtra. The institute provides a distinctive, excellence driven engineering education to groom future engineers and entrepreneurs.
Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering from one of the top colleges would certainly make a difference for your career in years to come.
