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.
