Options After DME Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

What I can do after getting diploma in mechanical engineering i.e. DME. I have been writing articles helping mechanical engineers since last many years. This is the most common question asked by students of diploma courses: What to do after diploma in ME? This is a very simple yet very complex question for fresh graduates with a diploma in hand and no job offers at all. I have seen students worrying their future. They are always confused between two options i.e. further education (Btech) or job. I recommend only further education at this stage. Option of job is for those who cannot afford further fee etc. They can get support from a part time/ full time job.

Here are few options after diploma in mechanical engineering (DME):

  1. With a diploma in mechanical engineering, you can get few more certifications. For example, in Design(AutoCAD), Solar energy, Biogas, Waste to energy, Food Processing, Plant Maintenance, Marine sciences, Defense Technologies, Automobile, Industrial boilers, Heat exchangers, Oil Exploration, Plumbing works, HVAC, Quality Control, Quality inspection, HSE (Health and Safety), ISO standards, Pressure Vessel Design, Project Management, Risk analysis, TQM, Costing analysis, Risk Mitigation, HR Management, Procurement, Industrial design etc. These fields can be opted on basis of interest/ aptitude. It will definitely increase your chances of placement with a better pay after diploma in ME.
  2. If you are financially strong and have no problems in paying for Btech/ BE after diploma in mechanical. Then there is no better option than this. Because once you are a full time engineer, you enter into a completely different world with new horizon of job opportunities.
  3. Third option is of job for few years and then Btech or BE. But personally, I do not recommend this option. Because you will waste your initial experience of job. Industry will look at you as a fresh graduate after BE. They will usually not consider your past experience.
  4. Another option is for hardworking diploma holders. They can go for job along-with studies. It is hectic but very suitable for those who have financial problems. They can easily manage to pay for their educational expense after getting diploma in mechanical engineering (DME).
Options are not limited for people engaged in technical sector. A diploma holder cannot be compared with a graduate in general arts subjects. Technical knowledge always gives you an edge over other qualifications. I have seen people doing diploma in engineering and then further courses and certifications enable them to earn more than engineers from field jobs like offshore oil exploration, trenching, marine works, defense work etc. Career after engineering/ btech/ diploma depends only on your hard work. Even BE engineers have to look for new ways/ certifications for promotions or better job options.

  1. Hello Engineers,
    I am an engineer of sorts myself (I am a dentist).
    For the last two plus years I am developing an innovative toothbrushes.
    I have designed and produced good working prototypes of manual and electric brushes and sonic is in the works. I am looking for partnership with mechanical end electrical engineers
    to make this project a truly amazing and successful . I welcome you to join me.
    Best Regards Gene

Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more

Best CV Format for Mechanical Engineers

Fifty percent engineers fail to grab a dream job because of basic faults in their CVs/ Resume. This article tells you about best CV format for mechanical engineers and how you are supposed to design your CV when applying for jobs. You CV is your first impression on future employer. He/ she does not know you. Your CV is the only representation of your personality. He/ she may select or reject you after first glance on your resume.  I have experienced shortlisting and interviewing candidates for different jobs. I was astonished to learn that most of the candidates simply copy paste each others CVs without any changes at all. These types of CVs are rejected immediately. I am not trying to tell you that you should avoid copying, rather i ma telling you to refrain from giving your CV to your friends. An ideal CV consists of following portions: Name/ Address of the applicant Objective Education Record Employment History Professional Skills Awards & Achievements Co-Cu

Engineering Mechanics - Introduction

The Engineering Mechanics is that branch of Engineering-science which deals with the principles of mechanics along with their applications to engineering problems. It is sub-divided into the following two main groups: (a) Statics, and (b) Dynamics The Statics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies at rest. The Dynamics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies in motion. It is further sub-divided into the following two branches: (i) Kinetics, and (ii) Kinematics The Kinetics is that branch of Dynamics, which deals with the bodies in motion due to the application of forces. The Kinematics is that branch of Dynamics which deals with the bodies in motion without taking into account the forces which are responsible for the motion.
