					STUDENTS LOOK AHEAD OF IT COURSE

The fashion for mechanical and civil engineering programmes seems
to continue even this year with more students looking for long-term
employment than short-term money.



Enquiries with some private engineering colleges in the state
discovered that more students had evinced interest to know about the
availability of seats in mechanical and civil engineering courses.



Engineering aspirants this newspaper spoke to said they wish these
courses as they were disturbed about job security rather than short-
term money in the stir of present financial disaster.

S. Santosh, an engineering aspirant, said, “In the past, several
students joined computer-related

courses as the IT industry was at its hit the highest point, but later the
breakdown started.



We have seen how a number of IT professionals missing their jobs
because of recession and economic delay. This made me think of
mechanical engineering as my career option.”

G. Siddarth, another student who wishes to join mechanical
engineering, said this course had several compensation, including
easy employment. “Even if you don’t get a job in a company you
always have the advantage of starting your own workshop or
scheming a vehicle and become your own master,” he said.
With the Central and state governments launching more
transportation projects, civil engineering students have a fair chance
of getting employed in one of the top infrastructure companies with
profitable pay, said D. Sujatha, adding that it was not only IT firms
that pay good salary but also automobile and infrastructure houses.



“Several Indian companies have in use up construction projects
abroad for which they need thousands of engineers. So, why not we
be part of it? This made me look at civil engineering as an brilliant
option rather than the IT industry in which you sit along with
hundreds of people who do the same work,” said Subramanian,
another student.
