The field of Engineering is still among the top because it is highly paid profession as ever. In Pakistan there are many institutes which are offering different kinds of engineering degrees. There are many fields of engineering being offered in our universities like chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, metallurgical engineering, architecture engineering, computer engineering, software engineering, automobile engineering, space technology engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, Mechatronics engineering, civil engineering, biomedical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Textile Engineering, and Many more.
If you want to do engineering in either one of these fields then you must do the engineering program which is recognized by the Pakistan engineering council. Here is the list of Top 10 Engineering professions in Pakistan.
Top 10 Engineering Professions in Pakistan
Electrical Engineering is on the top of the list because it has good scope not only in Pakistan but also in other countries. Electrical engineering has a wide scope of applicability and it varies depending upon different needs. Different types of employers offer jobs to electrical engineers. Graduates of Electrical Engineering are employed in Electricity companies and large industries as engineers and managers, responsible for installation, maintenance, operation of power handling equipments and systems. Electrical Engineers can also find job in atomic power plants, hydroelectric power plants as well as thermal power plants. Telecom and Electronics Engineering are the specialization fields of Electrical Engineering.
The demand and scope of Mechanical Engineering is on high level. “Mechanical engineers are required in every sector, be it the product and manufacturing line, the energy sector, the petrochemical and the petroleum industry, the oil and gas exploration sector or the material development industry, which is why the scope for mechanical engineers is very bright both in Pakistan and abroad.
Mechatronics Engineering is the combination of mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Computer Engineering. Mechatronics Engineering has too much scope in our country as well as in the whole world. Different Organizations give job to Mechatronics engineers like Toyota, NESTLE, OGDC, HONDA, KEPCO, OIL REFINERIES, PIA, cement plants, fertilizer manufacturing companies and many other companies.
Civil Engineering is one of the oldest Engineering disciplines being taught in our Universities. Civil engineers are responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the product. With the increase in construction work the scope of Civil Engineering has always rise from the beginning. Civil Engineers can find job in Government departments, private and public sector industries, research and teaching institutions etc.
The field of Chemical Engineering is not lag behind in scope as like others. Chemical Engineering is a vast field and career opportunities for a chemical engineer are different and greater. Chemical Engineers can work in Public sector as well as private sector organizations. Chemical Engineers find opportunities in manufacturing industries, petroleum and petrochemical industries, food industries, power production, pharmaceutical companies, plastic and many more.
With the increase in textile Industry of Pakistan this field of engineering is emerging with a high scope in our country. Textile engineering graduates play a great role in quality production and Management. The textile graduate take up the post in the textile manufacturing industry as plant managers, development, quality assurance, design, textile testing, product management and many other areas.
Metallurgical Engineering is associated with extracting, refining and recycling metals. The Metallurgical Engineer is an expert on the properties of metals and alloys, the smelting of metals from ores, and the processing of the resulting metals. Metallurgical Engineers can become a part of the industry that produces, buys, sells refines or manufactures metals or metallic products.
Architectural engineers apply engineering principles to the construction, planning, and design of different buildings and other structures. Architecture Engineering is increasingly being recognized as one of the top intellectual disciplines in Pakistan. Most Architectural Engineers work in the construction industry or related areas.
The career scope for computer engineers is increasing rapidly both in Pakistan and abroad because of the booming in this industry. Software Engineering and Hardware Engineering are the specialization fields of Computer Engineering. Computer Engineers can work as programmers, web developers and E- commerce specialists with industries that build or use computer-based systems, such as telecommunications, automotive, aerospace, etc.
Industrial Engineering deals with design, installation, operations and management of integrated systems of men, materials and machines drawing upon specialized knowledge of physical and social sciences and technology. Industrial Engineering is a rapidly fast and developing profession in Pakistan as well as whole world. There is wide scope of industrial engineers in manufacturing industries. Industrial engineers can work in various sectors e.g. management, finance, supply chain etc.
