Q2.What are personal Attributes required for a Engineer ?
A2.Engineering being the practical application of science, aspiring students need a solid foundation in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Good logical and mental ability, problem solving skills and an ability to grasp concepts quickly are essential. An ability to express oneself using figures and words, perseverance and judgement are some of the other skills required. During the duration of the engineering course students are required to put in long hours of study, work with tools and work in teams.

Q3.What is the Eligibility ?
A3. To be eligible for a diploma in engineering, one must clear the 10th Std. board exam successfully. Admission is based on marks scored in Std. X board exam. To be eligible for bachelor's degree course, one must clear the 12th std. board exam successfully in the science stream with Physics, Chemistry and Maths as compulsory subjects. Several states and IITs have an entrance exam for admission into engineering, colleges in other states grant admission based on marks scored in 12th Std. exam, particularly in the subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Diploma holders can also get direct admission into second year of engineering in the same stream in which they have completed their diploma. For a master's level course, one must complete the bachelor's degree program successfully. Further Studies After graduating students can go in for postgraduate studies in India or abroad that will culminate in a masterís degree. Further studies up to Ph.D. level is also an option.

Q4. What are the Career Prospects After graduating in engineering ?
A4. Candidates can either join the private sector, public sector or the government. In the government engineers can appear for the "Indian Engineering Services" exam conducted by the UPSC at the national level or join various departments at the state level through their respective exams. The armed forces also induct a number of engineering graduates every year. Other departments such as the civil aviation department also recruit engineers. Engineers can also join the Merchant Navy. Detailed career prospects are mentioned in respective articles on various branches of engineering. Future Scenario The reform process has seen India integrating with the global economy. Globalisation and liberalisation have seen the entry of multinational companies into India in all sectors . Due to the huge potential for infrastructure development there is a good demand for engineers. Telecommunication, electronics, computers and chemical engineers are likely to be in good demand. Mechanical and civil engineers can also look forward to ample job opportunities.
