What is the Jobs of Mechanical Engineering?

What is the best job for a mechanical engineer in India?

The beauty of mechanical engineering is that it is a core discipline, so one can opt for any field that branches out from Mechanical. Since the question concentrates only on government jobs, I shall restrict my answer to those. A graduate mechanical engineer can opt for the following:
1. The Power Sector : This includes the power plants, thermal or hydro (NTPC). Depending on one's choice and vacancies available, one can work either as an electrical engineer or a junior maintenance engineer in a power plant. They usually take people who appear for (Union Public Service Commission) examinations or through GATE, but sometimes direct interviews are also held. One can know about them through the weekly 'The Employment News'.

2. Production Sector : There are many government run or aided factories throughout India. Find out your interest and accordingly apply for these. Again, this sector depends on UPSC examinations when it comes to selecting new candidates, but in case of an emergency or sudden requirement, they do recruit after taking interviews.

3. Research Sector : If you want to go for research, DRDO, ISRO, BARC, etc are what you should aim for. These institutes conduct their own examinations maybe once in 2 or 3 years, depending on their requirements. The examination is tough and interview is tougher. A panel of scientists sit in front of you and ask you the questions, usually as a rapid fire. But, if you are well versed with the basics, you shouldn't have any trouble. Also they pay you the travelling charges to their institute.

4. Defense Sector : You can join Army, Navy or Air Force. There are 2 ways to do it. First is to appear for CDS (Combined Defense Services) examination and opt for Technical Graduate Course. Once you clear the written exam, you will be called for the interview in front of SSB (Service Selection Board), where you will be tested at different levels: Physical, Psychological, Medical etc. If you clear it successfully and make it past the merit list, you will be sent to IMA (if its Army) for one year's training. The second way is to directly appear for SSB, which are conducted every year by the three disciplines of our Defense Forces.

5. Railways: Every year Railway Sector conducts their examination. Look out for the available vacancies and apply, if interested.

6. Miscellaneous: Now that my answer is getting bigger, I will put all others in this category. Your other choices are:
a. ONGC (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation)
b. BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited)
c. NALCO (National Aluminium Company)

7. Administrative Services: You can either opt for IAS (Indian Administrative Services) or IES (Indian Engineering Services).

8. Marine Services : If you are interested in Marine field, then every year SCI (Shipping Corporation of India) conducts examination. If selected, you will have to undergo one year training at a government institute.
