Choosing a course to study can be an intimidating task, especially when you are fresh out of school. One of the most popular options that students settle on is engineering. Malaysia produces around 10,000 engineers annually and will need about 493,830 scientists and engineers by 2020.
Would you like to become part of the statistics? Unsure of the pros and cons? Well, here are six reasons you should become an engineer in Malaysia.
The number of branches in engineering is astounding, from traditional ones such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and electrical engineering to newfangled subdisciplines such as aerospace engineering, agricultural engineering and mechatronics engineering.
Unlike many other fields, engineering permits students to choose their branch of study early on, thus ensuring that they receive highly specialised training in anticipation of their first job.
Gauging the demand for a certain job can be a challenge, especially with numerous reports that often contradict one another. However, engineering consistently finds itself featured in the rankings of most if not all these reports. A quick search on JobStreet.com will show you new openings for engineers on an almost daily basis.
Engineers aren’t restricted to the subdiscipline that they majored in at university. For instance, if a student studied mechanical engineering, there’s no reason why she wouldn’t be able to work as a project engineer at a chemical company.The opportunity to move between disciplines is rarely found in other professions and gives engineers a big advantage when trying to gain experience to move up the ladder.
Engineers get to see the fruits of their labour first-hand, as opposed to many other professions. Tangible objects, ranging from generators to larger-than-life structures such as towering buildings and gargantuan aircrafts, exist thanks to the contribution of engineers. These are evidence of their contributions to society.
Travelling abroad is one of the biggest desires of many. Sadly, however, the demand and workload of most jobs only permit employees to plan a single trip annually, if at all.Engineers, however, have it differently. With projects involving foreign companies, engineers will need to travel very often to complete these assignments, allowing them to enjoy the foreign land between shifts and during downtime.
Many fresh graduates start despising their desk job not long after being employed, having to complete the same tasks day after day. Monotony won’t be an issue for engineers though, as they would need to be constantly on the move.
On top of having to travel, engineers often have to get their hands dirty, crossing paths with grease, oil and more. Dirty? Indeed. Tiring? Yes. Boring? Most definitely not.
