    Yes,that is highly possible.

    The minimum thing they expect from the candidate is that they must have a grip in any one of the software languages like C,C++....
    You should also good communication skills and good speaking skills.

    Re: Can a Mechanical Engineer get job in Software Company?

    You can definately apply for job in software companies after mechanical engineering because mechanical engineering candidates also study about software. If you have knowledge of programming languages like c,c++,java etc and any other skills related to software industry than you can definitely apply for jobs in software industry.

    If you want to go in the software field then you have to focus on these courses like :

    - C
    - C#
    - ORACLE
    - JAVA
    - C++

    - J2EE
    - .NET
    - OOPS
    - HTML
    - XML

    - VB

    You APPLY for some few software company like TCS , CTS ,WIPRO, IBM. You try your best and you will have best chances in software industry. Better would be to go for some certification courses in C or C++ or JAVA etc.

    Dear sir/madam,
    - Yes, my friend you can join in software companies... Now a days every company is taking students from different branches.

    - A student from mechanical engineering can also get a job in software companies...
    To get a job in software sector it is not important that you are from which stream, because they give you the required training.. They trained you for their job..

    - If you know soft skill's and you have the basic knowledge of computer and programming language then you can get a job in software. But as per my advice, there are some the software course are available, if you get the knowledge then you will easily get the jobs like :
    1. C++
    2. JAVA
    3. DOTNET
    4. Animation

    I hope my this information will help you to get the good placement.

    All the best

    Ofcourse a mechanical engineer can get job in software companies.

    Today, the software companies basically look at the technical aspect of the candidate rather than their branches.

    You need to have sound knowledge in programming skills and communication skills tough.

    You can try for the companies like tcs, infosys etc who all hire mechanical background students.

    Generally they go in there core industry but as you have said you have interested in Software Companies so you can go in software companies like TCS,ACCENTURE,WIPRO,INFOSYS,HCL,CTS,AMAZON etc.
    But for that you have to seriously study and gather knowledge in C/C++,JAVA,ORACLE, languages to work in software companies.
    To get jobs in IT Companies upload your CV in the following website

    1. Communication skills
    2. C/C++
    3. Aptitude skills
    4. Current affairs

    Re: Can a Mechanical Engineer get job in Software Company?

    HI


    Many software companies like TCS are offering software jobs.

    The minimum thing they expect from the candidate is that they must have a grip in any one of the software languages like C,C++....

    You should also good communication skills and good speaking skills.



    BEST OF LUCK
