High Salary Mechanical Engineering Jobs

This article lists the Top Companies for High Salary Mechanical Engineering Jobs in India. It’s every mechanical engineer’s dream to get a job and get a job with a high salary. In this article, I will briefly articulate the types of companies that offer high salaries to mechanical engineers.



1) High Salary Mechanical Engineering Jobs are available in Product Engineering R&D Centres of Global OEMs

First, let’s understand what product engineering R&D is. The product engineering R&D is to design new products and redesign existing products. Let’s take an example of a car manufacturing company. A car manufacturing company must launch new vehicles continuously.

The Engineering R&D team performs the design of new cars as per market requirements. The design and development of new vehicles require a large group of engineers and investment. Suppose the car manufacturing company is from the USA. In that case, it might not be possible for this company to have an entire team in the USA. Considering the highly skilled and English-speaking engineers in India, many global OEMs have opened R&D centres in India. India is becoming a global hub of R&D centres. Many new products for the international markets and the local market are designed and developed in these R&D centres. These centres hire highly skilled engineers from premium institutes and offer very high salaries.

Top R&D Centres of Global OEMs in India: Airbus, Boeing, General Electric, Honeywell, Renault, Nissan, Hyundai, and many other similar companies.
