Engineering is a famous profession in India. Most of the Indian parents want their children to become Engineers. They are well-paid and highly respected in our society. With this popular profession, a lot of myths and rumours come hand-in-hand. Here are a few common things we hear about Engineers and Engineering:
● MYTH: Engineers love Maths and Science
➢ FACT: Maths and Science are a must for someone who wants to do Engineering but they don’t have to be the favourite subjects of an Engineer! Yes, most of the Engineers have fun while doing the calculations involved in Maths and Physics but that does not mean that an Engineer or aspiring Engineer has to love these subjects!
● MYTH: Engineers aren’t very creative
➢ FACT: This is simply not true. Most of the artistic people think Engineering is not a creative field, but how is that true? The greatest inventions across the globe are done by Engineers! Yes, they use logic to do things but they definitely think out of the box and about all of the new things that can be done with technology!
● MYTH: Engineers are introverts
➢ FACT: Yes, they like to be focussed on what they are doing but they do have a lot of fun too! They go out with friends, travel, talk to new people & absorb different cultures! This myth is quite a cliché.
● MYTH: Engineering is a male dominated profession
➢ FACT: Maybe, at some point of time it was a male dominated profession. But today, more and more women are joining Engineering colleges and are very successful Engineers working side by side with the male engineers.
● MYTH: Engineers don’t have fun or diverse interests
➢ FACT: Engineers are passionate about their work and are extremely driven. They have fun while working and they also like to do a lot of other things apart from their job. They have various interests in writing, music & acting and some of the Engineers have also made a career out of their hobbies and interests!
Budding Engineers, it is time to ignore such myths and follow your dreams and passions! Do you agree?
