Engineering as a career option!
Today, there are a copious amount of opportunities and career options for students. How many times we would have been asked by our parents and relatives the prominent question of teenage: “What would u like to be in future?”. And as most of the students seem to have a very vague idea of what actually they want to pursue in their life, it becomes very important to scrutinize the seemingly infinite opportunities in front of us and choose the one which can lead an individual to success. This article discusses Engineering as a sophisticated career opportunity and what role an educational institution like NarayanaGroup could play in your journey to the IITs.
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 of 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.
Choosing to pursue a career in engineering entails a clear understanding of what’s ahead. You have to be ready to put everything into it – time, effort, money and resources, and of course, dedication. Spending 4-5 years learning mathematics and science combined with theoretical and practical applications is still not enough to prepare you for what you’re expected to do once you graduate. Quite simply, an engineering career is a work in progress; it’s something you have to continuously develop through experience and real-life applications.
The road ahead as an engineer might not be easy but the rewards of your hard work will all be worth it. Here are top 5 reasons why you should consider the path of an engineer.
1. Work that you will be proud of
Unlike taking up a role in the financial world, the thing with being an engineer is that most of the work you do are tangible – bridges, buildings, products, etc, these are things you can see every day once they’re done. The pride of being part of something great would bring you the job satisfaction you need to keep going.
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. Promising career prospect
Engineering is a field where you can see clearly your career path. With the transparent career progression, engineers do not have to worry a lot about how to advance their career, instead, they can focus more on their work itself.
4. You don’t get bored
If there ever is any field that offers non-stop and ever-changing challenges, engineering is one of them. Every project is different so there will always be questions to answer, problems to solve, buildings to create, and formulas to figure so out you won’t have enough time to think about something else.
5. Creative thinking
Engineering is not just about logic but also about creativity. In an age where technology changes each minute, engineers need to think critically to discover new ideas, create new things, and come up with solutions to new problems brought about by the ever-changing technological landscape.
The Joint Entrance Exam Preparation: Self Studies vs Coaching
JEE is the golden gate to engineering studies, which puts forth the most prestigious institutions in the country to pursue a career in engineering. But every year, students are stuck with the dilemma to choose self-studies as an option or whether to opt for a coaching center. The fact, however, is that most of the aspirants eventually choose to join a coaching center.
A Coaching Centre could help a student in following ways to improve his/her rank in JEE:
- Discipline: Regular classes with regular timings and a regular evaluation
- Guidance: From teachers in the form of important topics, doubt clearance etc.
- Structure Study Material: Tailored specifically for JEE
- Taste of competition: To understand your preparation level
- Regular practice: To make sure you are confident
- MOTIVATION: To always keep you going
Even with that said, self-studies, if planned in an appropriate way could bring you a top rank in JEE Mains and Advanced as well. You can read another article by Toppr which details the matter in a lucid manner.
