Answer: After an M. E/ M. Tech in Production Engineering with a specialisation in CAD/CAM, you can get a job with Engineering Consultants like L & T Ltd., UDHE and Engineers India Ltd.; with large scale core sector companies like Tata Steel and Reliance Industries Ltd.; with construction companies like HCC Ltd. and Petron Engineering Ltd.; with Engineering equipment manufacturing companies like MECON Ltd., BHEL Ltd. and Bharat Earth Movers Ltd.; with IT Software and services company developing customized CAD/CAM application software like DPS (India) Ltd. and DCL Information Technology Ltd
What is the job profile of an industrial/production engineer? Where do they find jobs? What are the prospects? What is the job profile of a Biomedical Engineer? Where do they find jobs? What are the prospects? Which institutes offer a degree?
Unlike other engineers who specialize in different branches of engineering, an industrial/ production is not a specialist. He/ She is sort of a General Manager who oversees operations as a whole. His/ her main job is to ensure optimal production at the economically most viable cost and as per the desired quality standard. He/ she studies production process of an industry thoroughly and comes up with strategies and plans to reduce cost of production but yet raise productivity and quality of the production process. He/ she implements the strategies and plans on the production floor and be an important member of Production Process.
It can be easily understood that like instrumentation engineers, Industrial/ Production engineers can also get jobs in virtually any medium to large scale industry where complicated engineering operations are involved. Industrial/ Production an engineer are a special category of people, and therefore prospects are very bright. Getting a suitable job is no problem at all.
A Biomedical engineer’s primary concern is application of engineering and technological principles in the field of healthcare. As you can see, various sophisticated technological gadgets are used to-day for diagnosis purposes, health monitoring purposes, as well as various other purposes like monitoring of surgery, monitoring of post-operative conditions, etc. C.T-Scanner, MRI Scanner, USG, ECG, EEG, X-ray machines are all examples of products of biomedical engineering and technologies. A Biomedical engineer designs, develops, fabricates, manufactures, operates, controls and maintains biomedical instruments. They also apply knowledge of engineering, biology, and biomechanical principles to the design, development, and evaluation of biological and health systems and products, such as artificial organs, prostheses, instrumentation, medical information systems, and heath management and care delivery systems.
A Biomedical engineer may find job opportunities in: -
Doctors to-day always use diagnostic instruments for diagnosis of diseases. Modern day healthcare systems are also very handy in health monitoring, surgery, monitoring post operative health and in other cases. The dependence of healthcare on biomedical instruments is ever increasing now. So, prospects of a biomedical engineer are extremely good.
