Career Prospects After Engineering?

Engineering is important. It is also challenging and exciting. Engineers use models provided by science combined with innovative thinking to solve problems and create new designs that benefit humanity.
Albert Einstein said “Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been ”. It is “Science” to describe electromagnetic radiation, but it is “Engineering” to build a radio or TV. Many of the so-called “wonders of modern Science” are really wonders of modern Engineering. For example, it involves engineering to:

  • Protect the world’s natural resources and enable them to be used more efficiently
  • Invent new types of diagnostic medical scanners
  • Design and build safer, faster, quieter, more fuel-efficient aircraft
  • Create smaller smartphones that are easier to use
  • Synthesise biologically compatible materials for artificial limbs

Many people are educated in engineering skills and use them in their jobs, but few are actually called “engineers”. The vital importance of engineering is thus sometimes difficult to see.
A career in engineering is interesting and fun. It involves a lifetime of continuous learning to adapt to changes in society and the natural world. It often involves working in multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural, multi-site teams. It is a very worthwhile profession, and the results, when you succeed, can be incredibly satisfying.

Himalayan Institute of Engineering & Technology

Himalayan Institute of Engineering & Technology is promoted and fully funded by the MaaSaraswati Educational Trust keeping in mind the needs of students of Himachal Pradesh. The B. Tech, M. Tech, degree courses are approved by AICTE & affiliated to H.P. Technical University, Hamirpur. Himalayan Institute of Engg. & Technology was started so that students of 10+2 Non Medical stream can avail the opportunity to enter into the Engineering profession. The curriculum has been revised paying greater emphasis on practical training and technology. It is hoped that a large number of our students will find their rightful places in public & private sectors around the country as well as abroad.
The institute is located in the most picturesque and serene environment of Himachal Pradesh at Kala Amb on Yamuna Nagar-Nahan State Highway No. 1 in sprawling campus having a well-established library, a well-equipped computer lab, well ventilated class rooms, canteen, lecture halls, seminar hall, separate boys & girls hostel, indoor-outdoor games facility, bus transportation facility etc. The institute uses LCD Projectors for imparting education to the students. The students are exposed to guest lectures by experts of various fields and have regular interaction with industry through industrial visits etc. The institute has recruited well educated, dedicated and hardworking faculty which enrich the students with knowledge in their specific fields. Extracurricular activities like cultural functions, sports activities are also held in the Institution.
The institute offers engineering in these streams:
