Are you seeking job a Mechanical Engineering? After graduation, you get to choose a  wide range of high-paid jobs which are available in various industries.

The main attractive part of being a Mechanical Engineer is that they can work in almost all sectors of Engineering Industries and on many types of projects in Design, Operation of Machinery, Production, Construction, Service, Oil and Gas, Automotive, Ship Building, Aerospace, Chemical Plants etc…

Job Prospects

Considering the constant development of industries and technologies, a huge opportunity is awaiting in Oil and Gas industries with high pay scale. According to studies Mechanical Engineering is projected to grow by 10 % from 2021 to 2031, as fast as the average of all occupation out of that 4% job growth in the oil and gas sector.

In Oil and Gas sector duties of Mechanical Engineer start from Oil Exploration that is advising the corporates to find the best place for an oilwell. And the job followed by Drilling which would be one of the challenging parts of the oil and gas sector. Once the excavation is done products must be stored in huge storage space which are built by the engineers and forwarded for further refining process and transportation.

In every discipline of engineering, there will be a Quality Inspection team to value and assure the quality of a product or Service. Likewise, almost in every industry, Mechanical Engineers play a vital role from top to bottom.

Engineers who have participated in skill enhancement training or experienced in these aspects can have better job prospects.

Get Trained or Experienced

Mechanical Engineering typically needs a bachelor’s degree the program usually contains engineering application and designs. If intended to build a strong career, one should focus less on theory and more on the practical application. Some Industries like SMEC may emphasize internship, On-Job Trainee and short term Skill Enhancement training programs to prepare students to work in the Industry.

SMEClabs the Training Department of SMEC AUTOMATION PVT LTD enabling students to gain valuable experience in the field of Oil and Gas industries for Mechanical Engineers.

SMEC provide training in various aspects like Design and Drafting, Project Management and Planning, Quality Assurance/Quality Control, Piping Engineering, Non-Destructive Testing, Structural Engineering and Industrial safety which plays a major role in oil and gas sector.

Work Environment

Design and Drafting Engineering

Will be trained with the latest software tools, particularly for computational design and simulation.

These tools will help engineers to take a project from the conceptual phase to a finished project which will help to eliminate the prototype and make expertise in reading the drawings at the implementation stage  

Project Management and planning

Project Management is process-related to all projects which are output-oriented. It is an important contribution that leads to completion of a project successfully. This helps a project to be formed with low cost and quality on time. SMEC will help each individual to perform the challenges of the project in each stage. Planning is said to be the backbone of each project and Engineers will experience Scheduling, Mobilization and organizing the industry

Oil Exploration and Drilling

Exploration is the search for land formations associated with oil or natural gas deposits and involves finding and exploratory drilling.

Drilling is a way to bring petroleum oil hydrocarbons to the surface. Natural gas is also released along with oil usually. Commonly used to drill in onshore and offshore to get oil and natural gas. Petroleum Industry divides into 3 streams called Upstream, Midstream and Downstream which mechanical engineers play a major role in these industries.

Piping Engineering

In oil and gas section piping engineers works on Pipeline and Piping. Engineers related to piping engineering are responsible for Designing, Selection of metals, erection and Inspection. These sections will be monitored and implemented according to Industrial Standards.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Quality assurance (QA)/Quality Control (QC) Engineers are ensuring the quality of products and services. They oversee the manufacturing of products and they are involved in every stage of a project –from development and commissioning.

QA/QC Engineers assure the quality of a process or product throughout the project and they are responsible for documenting with the help of Industrial codes and standards.

Non-Destructive Testing

This basic Inspection method is applicable in almost all the industries to determine the quality of a product without destroying the meterial or product which is highly recommended in the Industries

Some of the basic NDT Training given by SMEC according to ASNT are as follows:

  • Visual Testing
  • Liquid Penetrant Testing
  • Magnetic Particle Testing
  • Ultrasonic Testing
  • Radiographic Testing
  • Radiographic Film Interpretation

Structural Engineering

Structural engineers are concerned with designing and constructing structures that are safe and capable of withstanding the elements to which they will be exposed, as well as improving the structural integrity of existing structures. Structural engineers analyze, design, plan, and research structural components and structural systems to achieve design goals and ensure safety.

Industrial safety

Industries are concern about the safety measures to be followed by each engineer. Engineers are meant to practice safety throughout the project and must attend training under the safety department.


Candidates pursuing and completed Mechanical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, ITI and Experienced candidates seeking for job up-gradation can be enrolled for these training program conducted by SMEC.
