Skill-Lync

If you are considering getting into the field of Finite Element Analysis and want to know more about what your salary might look like, this is the right place! We’ve put together this quick guide to help you get started in finding out some of the paths that might suit you best. Read on to learn more!

Overview of the industry

The Indian economy is growing rapidly, and increased demand for engineers comes with that growth. FEA engineers are in high demand due to their ability to use computer simulations to test the strength of products and structures. The salaries for FEA engineers are considerably high as this position demands adept skills.

The highest pay of an FEA engineer reaches up to Rs. 20 lakhs per year. FEA engineers in India typically work in the automotive, aerospace, and many engineering sectors. The job outlook for this profession looks very promising as well.

Salaries Across Different Cities

In India, FEA engineers can expect to earn a salary of anywhere between Rs. 3,00,000 to Rs. 8,00,000 per year. The actual amount will depend on the city you work in, with salaries being the highest in Mumbai and Delhi. Pune and Bangalore are good places to find work as an FEA engineer, and salaries here are usually higher. For instance, an FEA engineer's salary in Bangalore averages around Rs. 5,00,000 per year.

Numerous opportunities are waiting for those who are willing to go out there.

Salaries Across Industries

In India, the average salary of an FEA engineer in India is  Rs. 5,00,000 per year. However, salaries will vary depending on the industry you work in. For example, those working in the oil and gas industry can expect to earn significantly more than those in the manufacturing or construction industries. 

- Average pay in manufacturing sector: Rs 3,50,000

- Average pay in the oil and gas sector: Rs 12,50,000

- Average pay in the energy and power sector: Rs 6,25,000 

- Average pay in the chemical and petrochemical sector: Rs 8,75,000

- Average pay in automotive sector: Rs 4,75,000 

- Average pay in aerospace sector: Rs 9,75,000 

Percentile Brackets

The median salary of an FEA engineer in India is around five lakhs per year. However, salaries can range widely based on experience, location, and company size. The top earners in the field of FEA make more than eight lakhs per year, while the bottom 10% earn less than 2.8 lakhs per year. 

So, if you’re looking to enter this field, knowing where you fall on the salary spectrum is important. If you aren’t much experienced but are working in a high-paying city or with a large company, your salary will be higher. If you’re a newbie and need to work remotely, your payment may be lower.

Breakdown by Experience

A person with 0-2 years of experience can expect an annual salary of Rs. 2,00,000 – 4,00,000. For those with 3-5 years of experience, the yearly salary goes up to Rs. 4,50,000 – 6,50,000. Those with 5-10 years of experience can expect to make around Rs. 7,00,000 – 10,00,000 per year. 

Finally, a person with more than ten years of experience may have a salary package that starts from Rs. 12,00,000 and could go up to as much as Rs. 15,00,000 depending on their company and seniority level.

Qualities & skill set required to succeed

To be a successful FEA engineer, you must have strong analytical and problem-solving skills. You must understand complex engineering problems and develop models to simulate them based on real-world scenarios. 

Additionally, good communication and presentation skills are essential, as you will often be required to present your findings to clients or senior management. Finally, it is crucial to remain updated with the latest advancements in your field.

Due to the complexity of FEA modeling, proficiency with different software packages is also key. If you get a chance to work in an industry that invests heavily in R&D, there could be opportunities for specialist roles after working as an entry-level engineer.

Tips to increase your earning power

As an FEA engineer, your salary will be quite decent. However, you should always try to maximize your earning potential. Here are some tips you can look up to. 

1) Keep an eye on new technologies and techniques.

2) Consider developing or acquiring skills that will give you more opportunities for advancement (i.e., project management).

3) Build relationships with colleagues and supervisors so they know what you’re capable of.

4) Consider working overseas on a contract basis if this opportunity becomes available. 

Cost of Living in Major Indian Cities

The cost of living in India can vary greatly depending on which city you choose to live in. For example, Mumbai is considered one of the most expensive cities in India, while a city like Jaipur is much more affordable. The salary packages for FEA engineers will also differ depending on the city you choose to work in. To be precise, you can expect to earn a good salary as an FEA engineer in India.

How to go about deciding your salary

Deciding your salary can be a tricky business. You shouldn’t pitch a low-salary bid and miss out on a good opportunity. Following are a couple of things to keep in mind when deciding your salary:

  1. What is the going rate for similar positions in your area? Use sites like Glassdoor and Payscale to research salaries for similar positions in your area.
  2. What are your qualifications? If you hold five years of engineering experience or an advanced degree (Master’s or Ph.D.), it might be worth asking for a higher salary.
  3. Are there any non-monetary benefits that will make up for the difference in pay?
  4. How badly do you need this job? If this is your dream position, then you can quote a salary slightly more than what they’re offering so that you can get it.

If you are a fresher and want to start your career in this industry, start learning and equip yourself with the right skills. Enroll in Skill-Lync’s Post Graduate Program in Automation & Pre-Processing for FEA & CFD Analysis to kick start your career as an FEA engineer.
