Hello dear student....


I would like to say there is nothing difference in doing engineering for girls and boys, all what you see and differentiate is your attitude and thinking which you developed from the society.
I do not think any stream or branch you select will matter much, what will matter more is how you take it and give your full dedication and hard work to it. The most important factor is where your interest areas are, which line or stream is more alluring to your senses is crucial point for me.
You can see in every field and line girls are proving to be better than boys. So do not take into account that you are a girl just choose the course you like the most and go for it.
If you are ready for it than do not think of all mis conceptions like mechanical engineering and chemical engineering not good for girls and only boys can do good in it.

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.


I am pretty sure you will do much better and will come out with flying colors after finishing your course. As I believe what ever a girls do is with full passion and commitment which is lacking in boys.

All the best girl
Thank you.

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.



Unorganised Sector

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..

Dear aspirant


Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com . Please tell yourself that you have no limits as a girl in studying. Girls today are entering every field and there is not one education or field on this earth where girls are not there. Girls have also entered into space and also these days get involved into pilot training as well. The world is moving on very well and i should tell you loud that just feel free to study whatever you like and there is no bias that girls are only suitable for certain degrees. To give you two examples, as a counsellor once we organised a workshop at a air hostess and pilot training academy in south Coimbatore. I was surprised to see for the pilot training course the girls and boys were equal in number and for the air hostess course boys were also equally flocking as air stewards. It is applauding to see that gender bias has getting removed these years. Like wise i tell you that feel free to study anything that you like, but most importantly only choose the profession that suits you well.

For this please take the Online Psychometric Career Assessment from this website and taking this Online Psychometric Career Assessment test you will be clarified on what sort of personality you have and what are the suitable careers. Moreover it will also help you to judge if you more like a mechanical engineering degree or a chemical engineering degree. Taking the test will give you some confidence that you are choosing the right career and education as well.

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.
