Future of technical illustrator

Hello everyone, I have completed my mechanical engineering degree in 2014 and recently joined Cyient Ltd ( formerly Infotech enterprises ) as an design engineer trainee, however the work I got is that of a technical illustrator. There is a lot of bad talk from many of the seniors about the future of a technical illustrator in terms of growth and I have joined this company with a 3 years service bond. I want to know whether the future is really bad as a technical illustrator, will this experience be helpful and what all courses need to be done to have an edge over others. Thank you.

Dear Arvind,

Thanks for writing to www.careerguide.com!

Well, first of all , let me assure you that you don't need to worry about future of technical illustrator.

You being a fresher, your work experience as technical illustrator would help you in future. Although, the scope of technical illustrator is declining, the role of mechanical engineer in designing will never fade. You can change the job in pure designing field after considerable work experience and few certificate courses in designing.

You can do following short term courses to enhance your job portfolio:
CAD
Certified Design Engineer

Hope this information is useful for you.

Wish you best luck for bright career,

Dear Aspirant,

I agree with Dr. Pandya.

Designing is a big field for Mechanical Engineers. You absolutely need not pay heed to the talks about declining scope of Technical Illustrators.

Freshers these days are made to sign bonds and this has become a norm in the industry though it does not have a legal standing in court of Law. Bond are barred in India. However since they term it differently, apparently there are no issues coming up.

I would suggest that you utilise your these three years to do your job and also alongside read, learn and network a lot. All these will help you to switch jobs later successfully.

You can definitely along side do courses like CAD, CAM. Project Management is also one area in which you can go for a long term career.

Do not worry about your future, just try to be relevant and updated always in the industry.

Best wishes
