Hi,

You can make your career in IT. Ankit Fadia did not had any degree when he was called to deliver a lecture in IIT Delhi.


Your mechanical degree will never hamper in your career, provided you can back it up with certifications. And as you grow in IT your experience would surpass your degrees and even certifications. In IT world Engineers have gained good respect despite their non-computer background. IT companies have always hired engineers from other fields than computer engineers.

Wish you good luck,
Aaloka

Hello,
Automobile industry has many custom apps and they use C++ in some cases but in most cases the language is more older generations languages like python etc. but ya, you cannot learn those for getting job all at the same time. You can start with more common Java and then once you connect with some IT trainer like Aptect, NIIT, etc. you can proceed further.

Every BIG dream start with small steps, so move further and join for a program with one of the computer institutes nearby you. And keep looking. Connect with people working in companies like Honeywell, Bosch etc and get deeper into technology as the next step.
Good luck!

Hi Partha,
With your mechanical background and degree, you may be the best candidate for IT job in a mechanical engineering based company's IT division like Honeywell, Bosch, Siemens to name a few.


You may be taken as a functional consultant in some cases without any specific knowledge of programming, but such opportunities are very rare. So you can take up a course like that of SAP certification or other developer certification programs and apply accordingly. Especially SAP certifications are for people with minimum 1 year of experience in a functional domain.
Best regards,
Aaloka
