Did you ask that question to Accenture HR at the time of recruitment?
@rohithnarayan • 14 Nov, 2011 no...i couldnt ask him then..i am really interested in mechanical design wing..

I'm not quite sure whether software companies assign work according to one's skills. Usually, all the recruited candidates (at entry level) are put through 3 months of training and then allotted to projects depending upon availability. I know at least 2 CEans who're Electrical Engineers and have been allotted pure software development project. I think it'd be way better if you can take this up with the HRs as they're the best persons to answer your question.

Are you pointing at CAD related projects?
@rohithnarayan • 14 Nov, 2011 yes...i am trying to get into CAD/CAE related projects...
thnks for the reply
@ISHAN TOPRE • 14 Nov, 2011 The Software HR does ask you if you wish to go for mechanical wing or not. Many companies have that policy. 😀

Drop the HR person a mail asking about it 😀 All the best.
@rohithnarayan • 14 Nov, 2011 thanks for the response... 😀
@Kaustubh Katdare • 14 Nov, 2011 Just wondering whether anyone from Accenture is reading this post. Do they have CAD projects? Is it possible to shift to CAD domain right after training? Please post here 😀
@rohithnarayan • 15 Nov, 2011 According to my knowledge,accenture does hav CAD/CAE service but the problem is,its linked to BPO services.So wen a candidate is selected through campus interviews they ll b posted in technical division and not in BPO and i don't think they ll provide an option for switching to CAD domain.
@Sagar Yadav • 28 Nov, 2015 Sir i have completed b.tech in mechanical engineering
how can i apply for accenture?
your reply is very imporant for me .
thank you
@Ankita Katdare • 02 Dec, 2015 @Sagar Yadav You need to keep a watch on Accenture's walk-in programs in your area. Whichever city you are targeting - Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad etc. You need to keep checking their official site and scan newspapers about vacancy related news. Whenever there's a walk-in, you need to check if Mechanical Engineers are eligible. Most often they do not ask applications from a specific branch (Sometimes for special roles they do ask for CS/IT engineers). Till such an opportunity comes in, you can keep preparing your skill base to suit an IT company. Learn key software, tools, programming languages, brush-up basic concepts. It's more important to be ready, because hiring keeps happening round-the-year. All the best!
@AnbarasanK1996 • 16 Jan, 2018 I am Studying final year mechanical engineering... I have placed in Accenture for 3.5LPA salary... How long do you think I can survive in Accenture?
And can i get any other core job if I quit from Accenture??
Pls reply me ASAP..
@Kaustubh Katdare • 16 Jan, 2018 @AnbarasanK1996 -if your interest is purely in Mechanical engineering, it'd be difficult to learn new things. While you have time, try and figure out if you like programming and if you do - you're all set. If not, maybe you should look at other options.

Getting a job depends purely on market conditions, applicant's skill set and available job openings.
@AnbarasanK1996 • 16 Jan, 2018 I have interest in Programming , coding
But I think it would be difficult for me to learn in small time span
