Asked by Anonymous - Oct 01, 2023Hindi
sir, i am 43 yrs old, completed my bachelors in Mechanical engg and doctorate from NIT. Presently, working in a private university with research and academic roles and responsibilities. With the interest of students in this domain has gone down drastically during the past few years, can you advice for a change in career like Data science etc as my present ctc is less than 8 lpa
Ans: Even though a career switch from a Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering to Data Science represents a transition that aligns with the growing interdisciplinary nature of modern research and industry I am of the view that you need to build on your years of academic experience in Mechanical Engineering by leveraging your doctorate in Data Science to further your career as a researcher professor in academia by contributing to cutting-edge research, guiding students, and shaping the field through your expertise.
Also explore consulting assignments in companies, especially in engineering and manufacturing, to help them use data science for optimization, predictive maintenance, and process improvement.
By wearing a Data Scientist in Engineering or Manufacturing hat marry your mechanical engineering background with data science skills look for roles that involve analyzing and optimizing engineering processes, designing experiments, and leveraging data for product development.
These are just two out of a host of options that you could explore by helping your university to build strong consulting practice and let your client see value and pay the top dollar. When that happens, the University will find ways to compensate your fairly for your value add.

Asked by Anonymous - Apr 30, 2024Hindi
Hi, I am a mechanical engineer and having been working in the field of power plant from last 12 years. I don't enjoy my work now and feel that I am not meant for this job as I see no growth in my career. I'm 36 now and can't think of anything new as I don't think I can't enter into a new field at this age. No one will prefer me. What should I do?
Ans: Feeling stuck in your current career path is a common experience, but it's important to remember that it's never too late to make a change. Take some time to reflect on your skills, interests, values, and strengths. Consider what aspects of your current job you enjoy and what you would like to do differently in your next career move. Research other career paths and industries that align with your interests and transferable skills. Look for opportunities where your mechanical engineering background and experience in power plants could be valuable, such as in renewable energy, sustainability, project management, or technical sales. Identify any gaps in your skills or knowledge that may be necessary for transitioning to a new field. Consider taking courses, certifications, or workshops to acquire new skills or enhance existing ones. Many online platforms offer flexible learning options that you can pursue while still working. Reach out to your professional network, including colleagues, mentors, former classmates, and industry contacts. Inform them of your career interests and ask for advice, informational interviews, or referrals to potential employers or opportunities in your desired field. Evaluate whether pursuing additional education, such as a master's degree or specialized certification, would be beneficial for your career transition. Some programs offer opportunities for mid-career professionals to gain new skills and credentials. Look for volunteer or internship opportunities in your target industry or field. This can be a valuable way to gain hands-on experience, expand your network, and test out whether a new career path is the right fit for you before making a full transition.
