It seems very funny one has to do engineering & then he/she has to work in a bank or other related institutes. Then a question arises WHY ENGINEERING???

So, is it justified????

Well why is an engineer working in a Bank is the question that to be answered before making any comment.

And If at all an efficient engineer is working in a Bank he/ she always can excel in their respective jobs. These days its about how quickly you learn and how quickly adapt to situations is more important rather than what is you background.....

Yes i agree that still there are certain fields of where a proper education is needed to work..

In my opinion...one should learn how to utilize the facts that he/she has learnt. Students don't learn engineering just for fuss...neither the study of engineering is a joke. Today the country requires good engineers who can build strong foundations for the country.

Due to this ill perception of millions of students; after engineering they go for MBA or other studies thus 4 yrs of studies is gone for waste. Students should see beyond what the industry wants them to see.

C giving lectures is very easy, due to poor infrastuctural growth in india lots of engineers had to starve for jobs and if bank is providing them job with better pay than most of the engineering firms and also better standard of living..........Then why not an engineer can join a bank......when we feel hungry we need food not our arrogance of justifying ourselves to stick on to a particular field,,,,,its all fate my friendsssssssssss..................

yes justified.The number of engg colleges increase continuously and frankly speaking infrastructure and placement of all these colleges are not satisfactory,as a result there are thousands of engineers producing every year all over the country.When there is no opotion left for u....then the best thing is to search any job without considering your specification.And BANK JOB is very attractive option till now.SO i think there is nothing wrong to go in a bank.Engineers who pass out before 2 -3 years, to them "JOB" should be the first priority instead of specification.It is very easy to comment against it but the reality is totally different.

Engineer in a bank would do Magic ! Example:- An IT Engg or a Computer Engg would automate everything possible to reduce the resource working time and stress.Enggs are definately required to do some good Performance Benchmarking to reduce the effort taken especially during EOD and critical crisis when Applications goes down, or propably to have a system brought up with millions and billions of account details still intact incase of any Disasters !!

why not?one can not wait for desirable job in this recession period. Especially it is getting difficult to IT people to make job in software industry if one has done certification also.so there is no any hesitation in selecting bank job as career option for engineers. so being engineer i recommend to go ahead with bank job especially for my IT friends.

people are looking for good oppurtunities today and if any sector is providing it then why not...today about 90% of people dream about that career that make their life better to live instead of making more money...dngineering gives you various skills like anaytical thinking,problem solving,innovative mind and much more and if any sector is requiring these skills then why not to use in that...ur money is not wasted if ur doing any other job instead of your profession...actually u have been filled with the things u have to be and u r rightly using it..

Why not? The Engineering Colleges and even the premier engineering institutions of the country are not able to produce perfect professionals.  If he/she has the quality engineering background they never opt for other than any engineering stream job.

If you are not surprised let me tell you that many of Data entry operators and even constables in my office are engineering graduates. We cant blame candidates/students but the curriculum.

Engineering is a graduation in professional field and a graduation makes a person mentally and logically matured enough to efficiently perform any task to which he is assigned to. So there is nothing harmful in the fact that an Engineer is going into banking sector. Also opportunities in Engineering sector is not so wide enough to employ all passed out candidates in a year in India, whereas banking sector is a grooming sector. One should not have fascination about doing jobs in their own field only in present days market which may ruin their career outright.Its all about thinking and acting practically.

Why not a Bank Job? You would see that 30% of the recruiters in India are Engineers by academics. How will you justify this? The purpose of education is to build common sense and adopt a good culture so that you can fit into any organization as per your talent and passion. Regards, Anna George. Web Analyst.

Yes, of course, now a days all BFSI projects are recruiting Banking experience candidates and also, every bank need SME s. Banks are sanctioning the loan after verification and valuation of project, Without engineering back ground it is not possible to evaluate the project. All banks are computerized. They need networking and other software maintenance staff to do trouble shooting their systems. If you check in the software firms at least 10-20% employees are without engineering back ground. It is not funny, I think so still you didn’t understand the HR field.

I have completed my MCA In 2009,i tried for a software job but i didn't succeed because of recession.After one year my fresher period over,if i want to join in a s/w company i must bring a fake experience.I thought it is unfair and i wrote bank exams and i succeeded.Now i am doing job in no.1 bank in India

  At the same time my friends entered into some companies with fake experience.They are doing their jobs very well and earning more money than me and living in city's.I am doing my job in rural area,travelling 50km every day.

I am happy that i have govt job,but i have some questions in my mind,please answer me because you are all well experience in your fields.

Did i made mistake not going for IT job by fake experience?

I thought ethical values are more important in a life?is it wrong?why i'm unhappy with low salary and working in a rural area

Does my fate change in long term?

The present day increasing changes in all industrial/manufacturing/IT/Trading/Banking/Financial institutions business establishment has necessitated for candidates with multiple skills in performance.

Hence today, anybody can do any nature of assignment in business in accordance with their specialized skills. Any business establishments today need both technical as well as commercial skills.

Earlier it was a practice that the technical guys would do the technical jobs and the same case with non-technical guys who would perform commercial jobs.

On the contrary the present situation is changing.Today every one has to be strong in techno commercial aspects while negotiating with customers. What we need is the interest to learn the technical as well as the commercial aspects of jobs involved.

Even in banks there are B.A., and M.A., graduates without any relevance to the bank jobs, but with learning on the jobs trainings and we can not argue that the B.com., and the M.Com., graduates should be appointed.

Everything depends upon the situation that so warrants.Why the technical graduates pursue for M.B.A., This is because to run the show effectively with technical knowledge accompanied by commercial & administrative capacity.

Moreover today's business tycoons and industrialists who even have not have their degrees either in commercial or technical subjects but capable of running their business in a very successful way with educated graduates in various branch of studies.Hence any branch of education has got its own merits in case it is properly utilized in applications.

The answer is if a person is qualified to take decision in favor of bank he has justified the occupation. The qualification does not matter and there is no wastage of money spent on infrastructure created to make engineer. The equilibrium takes place as and when it has to take. Many good examples are their Qualified CA working as Trustee for NGO an engineer working as Member of Parliament  a politician working as CEO of Sport bodies, BCom graduate working as software engineers the list goes on

He ll be created as an engineer thru his experience backed by his education , then in this aspect the person who has enough expierience as engineer would never go to a banking sector , as ther eis nothing to be done by an engineer .

In my opinion the jobs and the qualifications are decoupled. If you take the profile of the IIM graduates who take up Banking jobs ( generally they have an IIT engineering and IIM degree)as an indicator, i think there is a large scope for the engineer skills to be used in Banks. However, your question may be engineering graduates taking up banking clerk jobs. In the absence of a forecasting and need for engineering graduates and graduating from institutions with poor infra will only lead to this kind of situation. The question is the expenditure involved in creating the engineering  graduate to go for a bank job is justified or not?

it seems people here are antediluvian,they believe that a person is holding an engg. degree he must go for a job in engg. field only,but what if other jobs are providing better career,good life & future. In this case are engg. not supposed to think about future. Secondly the nation requires stong foundation than it is not only upto engineers,eceryone has witnessed year 2008-09 recession period where tons of engineers did not get job because industries have hit,change your perspective first if you really want to see change in the surrounding..emgg. are supposed to have excellent problem solving skills,analtical power which a person did not even match up,& if the people who are selecting did not have any problem than why others, merely because they feel insecure.

Well, what is the required qualification for a Bank job?  Everybody here seems to think that a Bank job is simply the teller's jobs or the Customer Service officer's jobs.  It is not so.  There are so many specialised functions within a Bank - Treasury, Large, Consortium and Syndicated Loans & Advances, Planning, Budgeting, Risk Management, Housing Loans, so on and so forth.  And each area requires different skillsets - Engineer's skillsets included.  So why is there a doubt about this?

Seeing from the other point of view as well, what are the jobs that an engineer has to do?  Can somebody please list them out.

Again, people here are against people studying multiple disciplines are wasting the country's resources.  I certainly dont think so.  As a person specialises in different areas, he is able to see different viewpoints and able to give innovative solutions and brings all the fields together.

i wud like to add one more point that if we go with the literal meaning of the word

"Engineer" which means

" To arrange, manage, or carry through by skillful or artful."

 E.g. He certainly engineered the election campaign beautifully.

So engineering also means skillfully managing the things... and banks do need such people.

& the analytical thinking which engineers can exersize is very difficult to find in somebody else.

Friends you may be aware that in the HO or Regional Head quarters of the banks there is one department called Engineering & Estate department where civil, electrical, maintenance engineers and also architects are there. The Banks need to construct a new branch requires in any of the area or construct staff quarters and all they NEED electrical & civil maintenance by the ENGINEERS. The civil engineers are planning and designing the building/construction, the electrical engineers are planning and designing the electrical installations. So with the help of the Civil & Electrical Engineers accompanied by others the projects are being completed and handed over to the user. After some time again the same Electrical and Civil Engineers are looking after the maintenance of the building.

But as for as my knowledge goes, the engineers are not assigned the jobs in day today bank transactions, of course a very few.

So friends, every establishments whether banks or anything need engineers. 

Thanks Dr.Ali Ahmad for the referral.

Lets come to basic, Is Higher studies means only to sustain good oppotunity by employing in some reputed firm and high profile designation ?

The basic concept is gaining knowledge. If this knowledge with logic where basically engineering provides provides value in banking operations then why not. Arent the engineers capable in thinking and doing different ?

One should understand that knowledge in discpilne studied should not be engaged in working. Talent in any field should be encourged.

Present trend is moving from B2B(Business to Business), B2C(Business to Consumers) & now, M2M(Machine to Machine). It does not mater, where an Engineer is working. What maters is how the skills are used. Automation moves in every where, networking tremendously occupies much of the offices, IT goes unprecedented application in all walk of life. Banks are no exception & are not meant to keep mainly ledger/ accounts. We discussed about Mobile purchase RS5000/. Who is to do & monitore the activities. You need engineering skills.

first of all i would say that plz don mention such stupid things " watch 3 idiots movie" as sum1 have mentioned in the no section.  dude this is real life and not reel life. ok. here, if u think u r able to get any type of handsome paying job whether in bank or any other damn field ur basic instict will be to go 4 it.

 

since engineers see the opening in banks, they go for it coz they know very well that they have the calculatrion and quantitative ability to clear the exams.  engineers clear the job on their on guts and EARN the bank job.

 

those who r on the no side , tell me one thing..

 

if u were eligible to seat in entrance exam of any high paying technical job, at that point of time will u think, even for once, that i have done b.com,b.a,bsc,bba,etc than why i studied all that to do technical job!!! u all undstood what i meant to say..

Follow your heart...probably nobody guided you and so you may have landed up doing some damn course for no good reason...and i have seen many cases wherein the candidate is confused which subject to take up at college level and end up doing some junk for which he/she is not interested in...but later on they begin to understand and end up doing something different successfully. It does not happen with just engrs., but in other professions as well...

so theres nothing wrong in engrs. ending up in banks if thats where they can excel in...but theres something wrong switching careers too often because you are still confused at this ripe old age...since that question is out of scope here...i support engrs. in a banking job hands down

Hi All,

To start with, the most successful business leaders in Indian Banking has a background of strong technical Education B.Tech & an MBA (Mostly Many CEO's Namely Ex-ICICI CEO MR. K.V. Kamath.......Its just an example to quote..

In almost more than 60-70 % of the Employees fare Better than the commerce graduage, the reason being their Analytical skills, process improvement and Automation ability to reduce cost, productivity leakage and yeild better results on the whole for an organization

 

These day banks are working on fierce competition, cutting edge technologies and through various levels of compliance adherence. Hence Upgrading and innovative technological solutions is an intergral part of the Banking Industry, Unlike the traditional banking system......

I also understand that there are various depts. where specialized commerce graduate or a CA would only perform and that kind of specialization is a Hot job requirement and should be handled only by respective talent professionals, after all its their professional career choice..

Thereby I agree Banks should considerably have a minimal threshold limit of having Engineers as their employees..

 

Would appreciate any comments on this!!!!

Thanks for refer Sheetal,

Agree with your view it is not justified but it is the most common occurrence of these days, that mechanical or automobile or other engineers opt to go for software development or do MBA and change track. This is happening much more frequently and gaining.   The sole aim appears to earn more and fast that is all.

Companies take advantage of simply picking pre-screened  brains.

Yes Anand,

I am in agreement of the thought that students should see beyond what industry wants them to see. But seeing beyond is something which is probably known to them but they are not willing to accept. They are running in a mad race where the first thing that they are not sure is their own Caliber so they run for engineering and after getting a degree there they run for management and when they do not find a right fitment they join whatever they get. Yes SRIRAM if at all a person is efficient he / she is likely to adept fast but then would core competence have a relevance. Wouldn’t those people who have opted for this stream surpass retarding such guy’s growth? What is not Justified is not justified.

Engineering is a purely scientific field, we have to learn to break traditional practices by working for what we've studied.

Yes. But when qualified finance professionals with MBA and commerce backgrounds shift from one vertical to another, say from being a corporate financial analyst to equity reseach or investment banking its not accepted. I think its just a hypocracy and partiality towards science guys or guys from Ivy League. This should change. I will support for the above if industry supports my arguement.

Anand I agree with you. One should have a clear idea ehat s/he wantt to become in life and after doing engineering one should ideally concentrate on that aspect of job. Yes side by side one can further persue studies on correspondence to make him upto date, if required.

If profesional are not not taking themselves as profesional in their feild, then why they waste money time and service class.

If some one focus to be a engineer, he/she develops interest but later looking to the pay back up they shift in the banks. Its very poor mentality to run behind money without reaping your own style and skills. Even the Banks HR are fools to hire these fellows.

Further if pay is concerned engineers can do a lot, See the contruction demand, Capital goods demand, Infra demand, Auto demand and many many more. Yes the salary jack up will build some time. At the certain age and experiance the engineer employees shall be in top of management, but I dont think the engineers will be in top at management level in Banks though made money.

Further Engineers are well capable to start their own business even. The engineers at bank will hardly be able to utilise its skills lateron.

In developed market the lower segment job is having better ratio income compare to higher post job responsibility. If income is concerned for employees then one should even turn to low profile positioning.

So for scales measurements to Accounting is a bad practice of Engineers and deceeding the qualifiation too.

If these happen, we may see Doctors to be the next managers, MBA`s to be the docters Accountan in Reception. Receptionist to be as director etc. etc. Saying, !!!! So what we have the skills to prove it !!! We dont need institutions.

Thanks for the referral Ms Sheetal, Mr Anand.

Quite true, why waste one seat which could have gone to a more deserving candidate who after doing Engineering could have contributed for the growth of the nation and self.

If u learn engineering, then your knowledge should be utilized in that field only.

ENGINEER IN BANKING JOB IS WORTHLESS AND THIS SHEAR WASTAGE OF MONEY AND POWER. IF ONE HAS TO DO A BANKING JOB HE SHOULD NOT ENTER THE ENGINEERING STREAM. BECAUSE HE IS WASTING ONE SEAT OF AN ENGINEER.

Yes Mr.Anand, I have seen some of the Electrical & Electronics Engineers working in HR Dept. and Many of the Asset managers are from IIT/ NITs managing the Mutual funds, I feel that it may be due to lack of Goal setting or changing their choices mid way or Going with the wind.

After all,for survival one should need to do something and earn money this might be a reason

No, not at all justified. In fact by opting for other job, he has wasted country's money and a valuable engineering seat which some one else in need could have utilized. It also raises question marks on his ability.

I suport Sheetal's view, but any engineers don't want to go in Bank Job, but right now they are joining cause of compulsion because recently recession has changed the ways of  engineers. but i think engineers are creative so he should give his/her talent on same field. This can be more productive.

being an engineer i dont think its right. if someone has a technical degree and he is moving in a nontech field then its complete waste. if the idea is to have a government job then even large number of technical options are avilable

Individuals should be able to utilize the knowledge gained through a course of study by applying it to their work and improving their wisdom through experience over a period of time. A course of study is basically a focus on improving the knowledge of an individual through a theoretical/practical course framework. In order to be effective, these skills need to be applied in the daily work.

It is preferable to focus on a specific line of work in which the original study has been undertaken.....

I'm not in support with them. Most of my friends are talking about job security, i want to said them if ur job satisfactions are not there why u r all looking for that. as well as what ever you learn in engineering you can't apply in bank job then why you learn engineering? if a person's motto is bank job then why not join in banking course? it's more useful then engineering, in this sector. as well as time , money saver also......

No doubt  it is a good topic to discuss but what is important is THE  JOB and not weather he / she is academically qualified.  Today the scenario is one that of employment and not any other factor.

I think this is not justified at all. One should do the thing in which one has the interest. Rest for any other doubt please watch '3 Idiots' movie.

I'm not in agreement with this. If one has to to work in a bank then why the hell they have to study engineering. Its a utter waste of time & money. Many individuals are acting like fools who do an engineering then go for an MBA & other studies & finally land up in banks & other institutes..
