Best Online Courses to Take Under ‘Engineering & Manufacturing’
Computer science and engineering fields have a very high return on investment and hence, these jobs play a very important role in the future of women in our country. Encouraging more women to take up engineering jobs will help improve equality at work and also make women feel empowered. However, unfortunately, we have only one female engineer for every three male engineers in India. Indian technology companies have only 26% of women in engineering roles. In general, the number of women joining STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers is less. There is an urgent need to encourage women in our country to take up more tech and engineering related roles and the Glow & Lovely Careers (formerly known as Fair & Lovely Career Foundation) provides free online courses in Engineering & Manufacturing for the same. Those women who are confused about what job to take up can take help of the free online career guidance provided by the foundation.
Women are mostly observed to choose courses like computer engineering, electronics engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering and the like. Not many are observed choosing mechanical engineering, production engineering, etc. for their engineering degree. Here are some of the best online courses under engineering & manufacturing that women can take:
Most women engineers choose the computer engineering course for their undergraduate education and successfully get placed in the tech giants of the world. In order to assure a good job in this field and to build a stronger profile in the programming realm, it would be wise to do an online certified course in Object-oriented programming. This course teaches the principles of programming used for building large and extensible systems. It focuses on object-oriented methodology and the right approach to modular and reusable software systems.
2. Circuits and Electronics : Basic Circuit Analysis
A large number of women opt for the branch of electronics engineering. This branch also offers wide job prospects for women. This online course with certification on the Glow & Lovely Careers teaches techniques that are foundational to the design of microchips used in smartphones, computers, and the Internet.
3. Geosynthesis and Reinforced soil structures
This course is part of the Civil engineering course. This online course introduces students to the different types of geosynthetics, their manufacturing technique, testing methods and their applications in different types of civil engineering projects.
4. Control Engineering
This course is part of electrical engineering and this is also a branch of engineering that is very popular among women. The free online course gives an introduction to control systems engineering, transfer function models of mechanical, electrical, thermal and hydraulic systems, system response and more.
