Hey Gautam. As a matter of fact most engineering students these days end up in IT industry because of the demand. Also all engineering disciplines' curriculums have subjects related to IT industry so you must be aware of that as well. Software companies are quite open to hiring engineers from any discipline depending on their potential. One thing you should keep in mind while applying for software jobs is the requirement of the job. Brush up your skills in the area the software company deals with before the interview. Also making few simple projects in a S/W language you are comfortable with maybe beneficial.

I think mechanical engineer can't apply for the software job this is totaly software field and if you don't have knowledge of software engineering then no company give you job related to this field..........better is to try get job in your field.....

hi. . . . As we know all companies put on some eligibility criteria for the graduates to attend the job session or to apply for a job before the interview.as per software companies rules they hire candidates from IT sector,cse,ece or few from electrical side..so you cant even applicable for software jobs in a software companies...i think working in software companies with a designation as a software engineer is not possible for a mechanical engineer.however they can work in other department like hr department after doing mba .i think so. . Good luck bye

i will like to add with this that the work is not going to be the same but yes there are some projects being given to software industries where mechanical engineers also work in hand to hand with them and there is no contradiction on this point both work at the same place and sare idear on projects so what i mean to say is there are software companies which intake mechanical engineers for various project works and there they work in harmony . i hope now i may be able to give a satisfying answer to your question . for more details do write to me again i will certainly appreciate the feedback and will also like to provide some evidence the next time i see your doubt .. thanks al the best...

if you have the knowledge of programming languages like C,C++,Java,etc you can definately sit for selection tests when companies come for oncampus placements
but i would advise you against it as it may cause you trouble in the future due to your mechanical background
good luck

Dear friend,

Yes a mechanical engineer can apply for software jobs, if he is having good skill of computer languages.

With the knowledge of their own subjects,mechanical engineers can also do software jobs simultaneously.
It is found that many engineers of core streams switch to software companies with their skills implementing there.

So go ahead..Good luck.

Hai
If you have scored more than 90% in plus two, then you can apply in IT companies.They are only looking for high grade students. But your training will be a little bit difficult as you have to study a lot of computer languages and also its programming.For computer or IT students the training will be very easy.

OK BYE

dear friend

of course u can apply for job in software fields .in this sector they require technical graduates of any discipline.

but why u are opting for software field though u know that software market situation is not healthy now.

in core sector there are lot of companies where u can apply for job.

i will suggest u to try in your sector.

best of luck.

Dear friend,
yes of course mechanical engineer can apply for software jobs.there is nothing like only it or computer science students can apply for software jobs.but in that case you might not get satisfaction because in that case you are working in a department not of your branch.mechanical student has a wide scope in core companies like Hyundai,Tata Motors,Yahama India Ltd,Hindustan Motors,etc.so my suggestion to you will be first try for core companies then if you do not get go for software department.
Best of Luck!!

Yes ,you can join in software sector, but for that you have to know some programming language, Soft skills...
As you are a student of core branch , then why you want to go in software sector..
after doing mechanical engineering you can get good job in reputed company like,
TATA MOTOR
JINDAL
L&T
JAYIPEE GROUP
RAILWAYS...
etc..

you can also join in defense...

think about it again ...

all the best..

etc..

There are so so many instance that Mechanical Engineers are Project Managers in Software Industry. All that u need is basics of C and C++.
Once when u enter the software industry there will be a training. In software industry company do not differenciate between computer and non computer gratutes.. All that u need is Good Learning ability.. U can surely apply for Software job and Succeed in same..

yea mechanical engineer also may apply for software job. if you have a better knowledge on software then surely you may apply for software job. also you have to do same job with the other those are recruited for the same post irrespective of the stream. but do not worry they will first train you how to do the job. if you have a good knowledge it will not create any problem.

obiviously you can do this.as a matter of fact only not you so many engineers from other stream are doing this. Software companies are quite open to hiring engineers from any discipline depending on their potential.but fact is that you can not apply your mechanical engineering knowledge there. Brush up your skills in the area the software company deals with before the interview.

good luck.

Frankly speaking ,
it doesn't matters whichever branch you are from,
you have to again start with the basics and initial one year will be difficult.
Nowadays not only mechanical but production people are into this field.

You can get a job in IT industry provided you have some of the software skills.It depends on the criteria set by the respective IT firms.But generally Mechanical engineers do not opt for this.Still there are courses which you can take up and try in IT sector.

hello friend, you can surely apply for software job if you are truely interested in that field.the software companies like infosys,TCS,wipro etc are hiring mechanical engineers too.you dont need to know languages like c,c++ or java.what they doing is they hire some freshers and give them a 6 month or 1 year training and mold us for their requirements.even you will get a better salary from there its better for you to go for a mechanical core jobs..
