I want to select mechanical aur chemical engineering which is more good for girls and for future
Hello dear student....
I would suggest you to go for mechanical line and excel in it, I do have friends that too girls in mechanical line and with a good pay package working in government companies.Streams like mechanical are core branches and generally these branches students get high package in placements than IT and computer science.
Dear aspirant, thank you for your question, really you have asked a very good question. I am happy to learn that girls are excelling in every field.
For a girl, nothing is impossible, and now a days girls are doing extremely well in every field. As you have mentioned that you wish to select mechanical or chemical branch. Here you have to choose the stream, which is close to your heart and you understand well. Let me tell you something about both the streams, that will help you to take a decision.
The chemical engineering is branch of science that applies the life science and natural science (physics and chemistry) along with mathematics for production, transformation and use of chemicals. It deals with engineering of chemicals, energy and the processes that create or convert them. Now days the modern chemical engineers are concerned with processes that converts cheap raw materials into useful products. In addition to that they are also pioneering in formulation of new transformation process to reduce the cost and energy during production of a product. They also use nanotechnology, fuel cells and bioengineering. A chemical engineer is supposed to look after the huge chemical plants, but due to developments in information technology, things can be managed from the control room.The mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principle of engineering and physics and material sciences for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest branch of engineering. Mechanical engineers may also work in the field of biomedical engineering specially with transport phenomenon, bio-mechatronics, bio-nanotechnology and modeling of biological systems like soft tissue mechanics.
I have friends form both the fields who are working in India and abroad. One chemical engineer friend, working in a petrochemical company in Gulf country told me that he controls every aspect of the plant using computer. Though there is some laboratory work also, but technicians look after that. His job is supervisory. On the other hand, mechanical engineer friend has to work on table and some times in the plants also to look after the instruments. As per the versions of my friends, they are working with many female engineer colleagues.
I have told you about both the fields, just listen to your heart and mind and choose your branch. With all my best wishes..Good Luck..
As said both mechanical engineering and chemical engineering are suitable for girls. I personally know students who studies in both the degrees and also being girls. Lots of students fear that mechanical engineering is something to do with heavy equipments lifting and for this reason they think girls are suitable for such jobs. Traditionally as only boys flocked to these degrees and girls did not study this course, it has become an assumption that girls are not suitable for such courses and there is no scientific evidence to prove that girls cannot study such engineering degrees. Therefore i highly recommend you to take the psychometric assessment and see what interest you the most whether it is mechanical engineering or chemical engineering as jobs are flooding for girls in both these industries.
