India celebrates Engineer’s Day on 15 September as a tribute to the Bharat Ratna recipient and Indian engineer Sir Mokshagundam Viswesvaraya. This Engineer’s day, the findings of this survey come as not only an eye-opener but also as a significant positive development in the field of Engineering and IT education.


The Engineers Confidence Index highlighted that 85% of aspiring professionals are confident about securing a job opportunity in the field of engineering once they complete their course. Furthermore, 78% of the talent pool immensely trusts the IT/Computer Science field when it comes to employability. Around 87% of young talent considers engineering a viable career prospect.

As many as 1038 respondents participated in the survey, of which 72% were men. The report further highlighted that IT/Computer Science is the most employable sector in the field of Engineering among 74% of the respondents. Mechanical is the next preferred sector by 13% of the talent.

Speaking on the survey, Mr Narayan Mahadevan, Founder, BridgeLabz, said, “Even today, when various other career avenues have emerged, Engineering continues to be a popular choice amongst aspiring professionals. They want to secure a reputed, well-paying job, and IT is their preference. They are confident about landing a job post pursuing the course, but at the same time, they are aware of upskilling as a medium that could help them grab better opportunities. However, they cannot polish their skills due to the paucity of opportunity. We want to bridge this talent skill gap, and our Upskilling Talent Programs help address this demand. We enable budding Engineers to get one step closer to their dream job and also help professionals hone their skill sets so that they can add value to their organization and job role.”
