The world is made of matters and mass, so called science. Engineering is the heir of science, in the sense it imparts its foot in almost every branches and sectors of world and in all products. Engineering having its origin from the ancient era of outcomes of wedge, wheel and pulley, is now one of the most elementary field in the world. You see, speak and live with engineering, either directly or indirectly in this life.
Starting from your hand mobiles, till satellites reaching not our neighborhood Mars but the dwarf Pluto at 5 billion kms away too, engineering is incorporated everywhere.
This blog details the engineering, its vitality, branches and gives the body “Why to Choose Engineering?” or “Why Engineering is the Best Among Other Fields?” …
Here it goes…!
What Engineering is all About?
Engineering is the application of Science, Math and its principles. It is that application used to design and build machines and every other component, to construct buildings and dams. Simply engineering is to solve the problem or to ease the life of living.
Problems are the root of emerge of engineering. It is that field which sees problems, analyzes it and come out with innovations that fixes the problem to the best of requirement. Hence, we can say ‘Engineers are basically Problem-Solvers’. They too work on solutions in view of improvising it, to the fitting need.
“The problems are solved, not by giving new information, but by arranging what we have known since long.”– Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
Engineering has more than 40 branches, that can be assorted into four main branches, Chemical, Mechanical, Civil and Electrical.
Engineering is where the workers strive to make it simpler or easier.
What Engineers do?
Creation of products:
All products are the solutions to its problems, say electric-fan for sufficient airflow. For creation of such products, engineers examine the problem, design number of solutions, analyzes them and afford the best of solutions, fitting to the world(customers). Here the engineer integrates the wit of science, math, logic, economics and suitable experience and tacit knowledge to find the solutions and to fit the product based on demands.
Creation of services:
Services include mainly communication services and informational services and other miscellaneous ones. The best brainchild of engineering is the information, news kind of services flexible to the entire world. This is the key doodad that helped in the spread of the field. Information & Communications are the most key functions in the world, as it may be noted at the advent of Corona Virus in late 2019 and 2020.
In his book, “Disturbing the Universe” (Sloan Foundation, 1981), physicist Freeman Dyson wrote, “A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.”
Branches of Engineering
Engineering has almost more than 40 branches but the most standard branches are:
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Information Technology
- Computer Science Engineering
- Instrumentation Engineering
- Genetical Engineering
- Nuclear Engineering
The scope of each branch en masse equals. The choices are advised to taken purely on basis of individual’s interest, as it feels spiritless to go out of your love. For instance, a person interested in cars and bikes can’t manage the style of works, sitting in front of computers and vice-versa.
The departments of engineering cannot be assorted into its priorities, since all are equally vital. To the people who say, some sections of engineering are out of demand, ‘as far as technology and people prevail, there is no paucity on demands of any branch of engineering’ will be the reply.
If you think on basis of salary packages rendered, go through the next heading of the blog!
Engineer’s Salary & lifestyle in India :
Salary Packages vary on branches, companies and works. To opt for engineering based on salary responses would down you in life. The thing is you can’t do often the things, unless you love it. If you have the perseverance, hard work and consistency, you will be paid more than you do. For your info, the world’s top most paid individual ($2 Million/year), Sundar Pichai is an engineering graduate.
Here is the average annual salary package for instant passed-out engineers in India, for your perusal!
Highlighted: Annual Average Salary Package for Freshers. Gaining Experience in the field will attract you to a summation of money.
Unfair Advantages are the upper-hands open to only the considers. Here engineering provides you a wide knowledge of approach to a problem/to a situation. This is the sign aspect that helps in almost every passed-outs of the field. The point is, it makes you tackle any kind of problem in a diplomatic easier way, not only in the preferred field but in all walks of life.
The truth is most of the topping personalities, businessmen and CEOs in the world are engineering graduates, (though not working in their field of study). Say for instance, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google & Alphabet is a Metallurgical Engineer but working in a Tech-related company. Point is, it makes you to adapt and excel in your field of work, unless you have the determination.
Epilogue / Inference :
Engineering has amazed the world by its outcomes and services and is continuing to do so. The ancient masterpieces like Pyramids in Egypt, Brihadeeshwarar Temple in Tanjavur, India, ziggurats of Mesopotamia are the classic cults of engineering. These amazed the people about how they made it possible where ample technology was not existed.
In the current scenario, engineering has all its demands, expanding unto no extents. In a field, where demands are plenty and outcomes are blended in every other fields, there is no downgrowth and hence,
"Engineering is the best field to the wants of the world!"
