This article is regarding get to know about the better life of people in two different professions: Weather to be a Doctor or an Engineer. Engineering and Medicine have been the two most sought after professions in middle-class India. However, slowly engineering course seems to be gaining heights in the process of mending the career traits of an engineer seems to have become more definite. Complete Four years of engineering from a decent college of Engineering in Himachal Pradesh can provide you with a handsome salary. On another side of the coin, Five years of basic medical study from a reputed institution gets you nowhere until and unless you do a PG specialization, which is another three years. Even if this is not enough; it would be much better if you go for a ‘super specialization’, which may take two another two years.
Four years of engineering from engineering colleges can get you a yearly package of 4 to 5 lacs; and if you manage to get an MBA after that, a package of 12 to 45 lacs may be offered to you. Careers of many engineers have become much more certain after the advent of Information Technology.
5 years of MBBS is only the beginning. After this, you may get a job and then start your practice of courses chosen by you to be pursued, but only an MBBS degree is not of much value in the present market. So, specialization is needed to earn 5 to 6 lakhs a year. If any of your family members is involved in the medical field, then it makes much more sense to join the profession, because, your career will naturally get a boost as you will automatically get clients passed. Doctors, do make big money if they have their own clinics and hospitals. If you have enough money to build a hospital, you should not think much before joining the medical institute; you are now bound to make a huge wage. However, if that is not the case, then you need to have lots of patience and work hard in an urge of getting more and more degrees.
Life of a student:
Usually, Survival of a student of medical science is much tougher than that of engineering students in engineering colleges. The former practically demands you to forget your personal life and study, study and study more and more. Whereas, for aspiring engineers getting into a good college is the toughest part, after that the journey is relatively easier. Any aspirant who has done his course of engineering form one of nicest engineering colleges he/she will surely exceed in his/her life.
Respect both employees get:
Doctors are clear winners in terms of respect because they save the lives of the patient whether they are in critical condition or not. Even they have the status of a god in general among society. In comparison, engineering is just another profession.
Doctors have to struggle hard in establishing themselves than engineers. B. Tech degree holders are more in demand and if you have done your engineering from one of the good engineering colleges then its a plus point for you. Again, thanks to the advent of Information Technology. And if you manage to get an MBA done after B.Tech, you do not have to look back in anyhow. However, a doctor needs more time to flourish a lot. A doctor can not earn instant money.
The work environment along with a procedure is much flexible for doctors as compared to engineers. This is because a doctor can also work at the hospital, which has state-of-the-art facilities as well as in General Hospitals. Doctors can also practice in their private clinics. Whereas Engineers have to work in strict corporate environments and even at construction sites. And practical exposure for an engineering student is better. If it has done from some of the best engineering colleges.
Now, that you have a comparative study in front of you, it will surely be easier for you to decide which way to go and which branch to opt.
