Out of the four subjects in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths), graduates in the engineering sector have better than average prospects of finding a job after finishing their degree. In contrast, graduates in maths, life sciences and physical sciences are facing difficulty in finding their first jobs: last year, graduates with these degrees were among the least likely to have found a full-time job four months after graduation. It is also a fact that engineering graduates command a better starting salary than the others. This is purely because of the umpteen opportunities that have been thrown open by the fast paced pure play engineering services sector. Because of this, the demand for highly specialised pure play engineering graduates are on the rise.
According to reports, the engineering services revenues provided by Global Service Providers located in India in the year 2015-16 is $ 6.6 billion and the forecasts for ESGSP (Engineering Services by Global Services Providers) market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8 percent for the 2016 through 2020, resulting in a market size of almost $11.6 billion in 2020.
