No matter, which engineering stream you are pursuing or which industry you work, as an engineer you would have to collaborate with several people in the professional world. You may work with fellow engineers as well as people from other departments, working in a cohesive manner is vital to compete the projects you undertake. This is where the teamwork comes into the picture, you must be able to communicate well with people at different levels and also work with integrity and in a friendly manner so as to win the trust of the fellow team members.

As an engineer, you would need to undertake various engineering projects and more often than not these projects are complex, which require attention to minor details at various stages. Right from conceptualising to preparing a plan of action and problem solving, you need to pay close attention detail so that nothing critical gets lost or is ignored in the process. As a matter of fact, the success or failure of the project hinges on these minute details.

One of the greatest hallmarks of successful engineers is their problem-solving skills and their ability to approach a problem in a meticulous manner to find a solution. Since you will be dealing with complex tasks every day, you need to approach the task with an analytical mind and see through the potential risks and appropriate steps to mitigate the same. A lot of private engineering colleges in Delhi inculcate this skill through various projects and assignments so as to give the students a taste of what to expect in their professional career.
