    for software you can do a course on designing/languages. there are a limited number of softwares today are used to design machine tools,3D modelling etc they are:
    1.CATIA
    2.ANSYS
    3.SOLID WORKS
    4.AUTOCAD
    5.PRO E
    6.3DMAX
    etc you can do courses on one of them otherwise you pursue course on computer languages like:
    1.TURBO C
    2.C#
    3.JAVA
    4.ORACLE
    5.J2EE
    6.DOT NET FRAMEWORK
    7.VB DOT NET
    8.OOPS
    9.XML
    it will help you get jobs in software field. but it will be the best for you to pursue course related to design cause it will remain your stream alive.
    so best of luck.

    You can go for courses in C,C++,Dot Net,Php etc to have better start in software industry.But You are just jumping into wrong sector due to your job dis-satisfaction.You have several sectors for mechanical engineers other than in steel sector.You can try for power sectors,manufacturing or assembling industries,heavy machineries sector,automobile sector,
    You need not leave your stream completely if you are not finding just one sector unsuitable for you.You will find it hard to adapt to software sector demands after starting off as a mechanical engineer.If you want a more relaxed job you can go for some courses in Mechanical engineer itself as CATIA or AUTOCAD etc or you can go for Design jobs where there will be no site work.
    You can go to software industry as it is your own opinion but it will be suicidal to go to another stream.All the best

    Hi.......
    As you are a mechanical engineer i think best thing is to do
    AUTOCAD
    because it is an software application and it is related to mechanical field too. Learn AUTOCAD. One more course is 3D max.
    But to get a good job in software industry you should be good in programming language and logic.Because programming language are base of the software industry.
    You should have good knowledge of c and c++.
    After that either go to java or .NET.
    These are the courses that really gona help you to get a good job in software industry.
    good luck.........

    hi..as you have been working in the steel industry for the last two years it would be an very tough job for you to get an job in the software industry and that too even more in an good company because thy are surely going to ask you reason for shifting your job from the steel industry and more over you are not even an software engineer and being an mechanical engineer if you are leaving the steel industry which id your core sector then you are surely going to face many problems in convincing the interviewer about your reasons for shifting to the software side .
    you can join the various programming course in the NIT which is the best software training institute in the country and almost gauntness an job for almost every one who ever joins this institutes so you can make full use of this institute.
    even if you get an job in an small industry you ca take that and gain some valuable experience in the software industry and then go to the big companies because in the big companies if you fail once then there wont be an second chance to get an job into them .
    also you can upload your resume in the various job searching websites they can easily get you an job depending upon the qualifications you are having
    some of the job hunting websites are :
    http://www.placementindia.com/
    http://www.monsterindia.com/
    http://www.naukri.com/
    http://www.timesjobs.com/

    instead i would suggest you to make your mind with it and since you have now a good experience in this field then you can try better job in the same where you will have more chances of growth and progress.
    every stream looks disgusting after a while but you have to face that situation and come out of it by managing change the place or the company but go ahead i the same to have more chances of exploring your talent to the world.

    Rather than doing some short term certification course and entering in the IT industry as a fresher with lower package i would advice you to go for Mtech or MBA which will not only credit and give validity to your 2 years of exp but will be able to give you a better job and package.

    dear friend,

    you are working in the steel industry and you are an mechanical engineer, then why do you want to go in the software job, the mechanical jobs have more money. you can go for the other mechanical job and you have the work experience, but this is the other thing that you are interested in the IT sector or in the software sector. the interest is the most important thing for a man.
    if you want to go in the software field then you have to focus on these courses like:-
    JAVA
    C++
    CATIA
    C#
    ORACLE
    J2EE
    .NET
    OOPS
    VB
    HTML
    XML
    MAYA 3D software
    etc.
    by these course you will be an software developer.
    so best of luck.
