Can A Mechanical Engineer Become Data Scientist? 3 Stories

Let us find an answer to this question here: can a mechanical engineer become a data scientist?

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering that combines engineering physics & mathematics principles with materials science. Using mechanical engineering one can design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.

Now, that speaks for the skills you require as a mechanical engineer, isn’t it? Coding or data analysis or any other Data Science skills for that matter comes nowhere near the requisite mechanical engineering skills. Then, can a Mechanical Engineer become a Data Scientist?

Time and again, the alumni of our career programs have proved that, Yes! A Mechanical Engineer can become a Data Scientist.

Can a mechanical engineer become a data scientist? Yes!

If you dig deeper, you will understand that Data Science facilitates individuals & organizations to efficiently comprehend enormous data from numerous sources and emanate valuable insights to produce smarter data-driven decisions. 

That said, the top skills required to become a Data Scientist include:

  • Statistics & Mathematics
  • Analytics & Modeling
  • Computing & Programming
  • Data wrangling, Data Visualization
  • Excellent Communication
  • Intellectual Curiosity &
  • Machine Learning Know-how

Moreover, Data science approaches can enable mechanical engineers to anticipate any of the higher level problems before they happen. Also, appropriate analysis, visualization, and prediction techniques can be implemented to assess equipment performance and other factors that might negatively affect the workflow.

That is to say, mastering data science would benefit you in not one but multiple ways, even if you are a mechanical engineer.

Before we move into the next section, ensure you have a good grip on data science essentials like Python, MongoDB, Pandas, Numpy, Tableau & PowerBi Data Methods. If you are looking for a detailed course on Data Science, you can joinGUVI’s Data Science Career Program with placement assistance. You’ll also learn about the trending tools and technologies and work on some real-time projects. 

Additionally, if you want to explore Python through a self-paced course, try GUVI’s Python Self-Paced certification course.

Mechanical Engineer to Data Science:

We are extremely happy to share that our student Karthigeyan got placed as a Data Scientist at Integra Global Solutions.

Karthigeyan, who was a mechanical engineer found his exciting career traversing to Data Science. Hear directly from the Data Scientist!

Can a mechanical engineer become data scientist? Yes!

Mechanical Engineer to Data Analyst

Our student Mohamed Ishtiyaque changed his career from professor to Data Analyst with GUVI. If you ask us: Can a mechanical engineer become a Data Scientist? Then, Mohamed Ishtiyaque is one of the answers that we can give.

Can a mechanical engineer become a data scientist? Yes!

He has tried everything that helped him learn the basics and then traverse from there.

He has very rightly said that it’s not the number of projects that matters but the outcome that you learn from each of the projects is what really makes the difference. One thing we need to note here is that every project is based on one or more real-world problems and their plausible outcomes. So, we get to learn a lot from every project.

In this video, Mohamed Ishtiyaque has stated everything from his background to the projects that he took and his interview experience. Hear out what Mohamed Ishtiyaque did to become a Sr. Data Analyst from being a mechanical engineer.

We indeed have multiple Diploma Mechanical to Data Science transitions in GUVI. These Mechanical Diploma pass-outs have happily switched to Data Scientists with a soft push.

Indeed our Alumni statistics strongly prove that one can become a Data Scientist after pursuing mechanical engineering also.

These learners have made their magnificent transition from Mechanical background to Data Science. And they rightly claim that this transition is very much possible.

We know, this is very intriguing. So, here is something for you that you might get started with. You can step into Data Science with this kickstarting video.

Can a mechanical engineer become a data scientist? Yes!

Kickstart your Data Science journey by enrolling in GUVI’s Data Science Career Program where you will master technologies like MongoDB, Tableau, PowerBi, Pandas, etc., and build interesting real-life projects.

Alternatively, if you would like to explore Python through a Self-paced course, try GUVI’s Python Self-Paced certification course.
