Insights How is India growing its engineering talent pool?

India has a strong and growing reputation for producing astute engineers, in part due to the exciting prospects that attract professionals into the field.

There is a common misconception that engineering is a male-dominated industry, but in fact according to the World Bank, India has the largest percentage of female STEM graduates (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in higher education.

At AtkinsRéalis , and within our brands Atkins and Faithful+Gould, we are known for delivering some of the world’s most interesting and complex projects. Our people choose to join our diverse teams because we continuously create innovative engineering solutions in response to local, regional, and global challenges, changing the future for generations to come.

Why an engineering career in India?

Engineers are in demand all over the world, but many are taking their careers to India because of the varied opportunities that are available, and the digital transformation that is underway. The COVID-19 pandemic has even helped to accelerate India’s digital transformation, which is creating new ways of working in the construction industry, increasing efficiencies, saving time, reducing costs and improving safety.

An engineering career in India doesn’t restrict your potential to just within the country. At Atkins in India, for example, we support projects all over the world, such as improving water quality on the Thames Tideway in London, designing, and building infamous landmarks like Dubai Opera, and providing support across multiple disciplines: from major transport infrastructure to rail systems, and 3D modelling for clash detection.

Multidisciplinary engineering opportunities

Global changes, such as population growth and climate change, are presenting new challenges for engineers to overcome. Water, for example, is the single most important element that humans and the ecosystem rely on, yet there is a real danger we could face shortages in the near future. India is the seventh-largest country in the world and has the second-largest population, so water engineers are increasingly in demand to find solutions to preserve and secure this life-giving resource.

Our teams at Atkins in India have multidisciplinary engineering capabilities, which helps to strengthen our talent pool. This included digital engineering, Building Information Modelling (BIM), digital asset management and much more. Through our Global Design Centres (GDC) we provide support for AtkinsRéalis projects worldwide, exposing our astute teams of engineers, architects, and designers to endless opportunities, and enabling positive change the future for communities everywhere.
