As times are changing, so are the demands and job avenues for engineers. In such a scenario, experts advise students be open to different choices and use opportunities now available such as angel investing and an entrepreneur-friendly ecosystem. Several graduates are opting to start their companies with venture capital, even though this is risky. Yet, students who go this way do so because of the freedom and the fact that their success is in their hands. Further, even if they do not succeed, many employment opportunities exist for such people.
Boundaries between engineering and non-engineering jobs are blurring as firms visit engineering colleges to recruit for several verticals, including those which may not be directly related to engineering. As engineering helps students develop analytical skills, several analysis-related profiles such as data analytics and code engineering are becoming popular.
