Hi Jigyasa, I was a diploma student too. And I am happy to see that you are considering business options right after diploma. Are you not going for a degree? I mean do you want to work on a business part-time or full-time?Jigyasa31can someone plzzzzzzzzz guide me about business options after diploma in mechanical engineering?????
I believe there are several options in business for mechanical engineers. I'll tag our ace CEan zaveri - who might be able to suggest a few ideas related to mechanical engineering.nikhil parmarhello.., i also completed my diploma in mech.. i am also doing the degree in part time, but i dont want to do job after it... can u plz guide about business options...
i want to work on business full-time...
but please remember, that today there is not such thing as "distinctly mechanical" or "distinctly electrical" or so on.
mechanical, electrical and electronics are now very closely related, and you have to concentrate on all three if you are planning to make and sell something.
as for business, well you first gotta identify some common problem or something which is lacking in some place and locality.
here are some suggestions: gen-sets with high fuel efficiency.
under-light ceiling fans available at a cost as low as rupees 4000.
The safest option when you are starting with no money is starting a consultancy or building a website that helps others in implementing something. Among the hard-core mechanical engineering options, I think you can start with building an expertise in the fields of solar energy, materials management or HVAC systems.
I've heard that one of the popular ways to start a business is to do energy audit (or carbon audit) so that you can help companies in reducing carbon emissions within their organisation.
To be able to be successful at the business as a consultant, there's no easy way. You will need to distinguish yourself from the competition and have a definite edge over others in similar business. Innovation is the key here, I think.
If a mechanical engineering diploma holder wants to start his own business, the first idea that comes to the mind is - start something from the comfort of your dorm room. Learn mechanical engineering software or provide online consultancy. They need learning resources for all such kind of businesses.
