Career in designing for Engineering Students

In this creative world, Designing has become an important part of every product or every service. Design is one of the factors that describe the USP of any product. Besides, designing is one such aspect that helps in product differentiation.

For engineers, designing is one such career path that they can choose to go for. Several institutes such as IITs offer courses in designing at Masters Level for students to take up a career in designing. However, designing is very wide as there are a lot of domains in this field you can get your specialization in. Therefore, if you take up Masters in Design, then there are various specializations, for instance graphic designing or communication designing. Automotive design, interactive design and user interface design are some of the other popular design specializations that engineers can opt for.

Career options

Electrical or Mechanical field: If you are from Mechanical or Electrical field, then designing mechanical products will be your area of specialization at any electronics or automobile company. This specialization will help you to understand the elementary designing that are required for this career. Knowledge of machine elements designing will definitely add cherry on the cake.

Computer field: For people specializing in Computer field, Computer Aided Design Work (CAD) will help you to improve your skills. Apart from these, you can also take up some courses related to software designing that will definitely add feather to your cap.

Career in designing for B.Tech Graduates:

There are institutes that offer specializations in designing such as Industrial Design, Visual Communication, Interaction Design, Animation, Mobility and Vehicle Design.

Graphics field: For enthusiasts who have always been fascinated with graphics, they can take up courses related to graphic design, animation film design, video communication and exhibition design.

Software field: People with software background may go for careers in fields such as new media design, software and user interface design, information and digital design.

Design engineering: Design engineers create things of all sizes and shapes. Design engineers also have a broad scope from designing and producing new systems in hydroelectric power plant to even working for Dyson and design vacuums.

The scope of design engineers is quite high as there are several government agencies, construction companies and product manufacturers that work in industrial designing. Skills required for this specialization include 3D modeling, coding ability, creativity, listening, problem solving skills, teamwork and tenacity. People specializing in virtual simulations may also witness a bright career in this field.
