Hello Dinesh,

There is nothing related to Mechanical Engineer in SAP , So all will be new for you. So i guess don't have such good knowledge of technical coding. I would suggest you to learn some functional module of SAP.

I would suggest you to learn MM module in SAP.

Do one thing Google about all module of SAP and got some idea by own. and then make some decision which module will be best for you..

Good luck for your Bright Future

You should ask yourself what are you good at.  I keep suggesting this and may also apply to someone like yourself:

1)List all SAP modules on a piece of paper and write brief points about what they do to manage business effectively eg. MM is for material master is helps businesses procure and manage the stock levels and is used heavily in the manufacturing sector etc.

2)Relate your experiences upto now to each of these

3)Decide what you are good at. It could be that you may be good at more than activity/one module and if this is the case, you could decide both of them.

I have seen people with Engg. degrees switching to modules not requiring anything to do with engg studies, so suggest that until you decide which module, please don't relate your engineering background to your decision.

All the best in your SAP career!

Hi Dinesh,

In SAP there are technical and functional modules, some are a combination of both. Take sometime and first go through the different modules of SAP and see which one you like and would like to pursue. There are many people who have education in a specific stream and the job that they do is way different so don't worry about a module of SAP matching with your Engineering.

New things will always keep coming so we can never be 100% sure about a specific module, once you have decided upon which module you would go for then you have to see if you can afford to take the education from SAP authorized partner (benefits of learning from SAP authorized partners is that it shows you have gone through what SAP considers one should know for a specific module and you will be allowed to take the certification after training). If you take training from a non SAP authorized training partner then it will be way less in cost but you won't be allowed to appear in the certification exam. Most importantly the training provider should give you good training and a good trainer as it is important for you to understand all the contents and you should practice all what you learnt thoroughly.

You are already familiar with SCN so the next move would be to become a regular reader of all good posts, articles, blogs so that you keep getting good insights of what is happening in the SAP world.

Currently SAP is offering free training on HANA and SAP Mobility via, if you have time and are interested then go ahead and register there and you can take up the HANA course starting October.

Good Luck with studies and welcome to SAP.

Hi Dinesh,

               There is nothing related to Mech. Engg. in SAP.So, every thing will be new for you..

I would suggest you to stay in core field or if you want to come in software line than you learn "MM module(Beginner in SAP MM module)" in SAP .

Hi Dinesh,

I can explain you few thing upon which you can decide taking up the module.



  • BASIS(Networking which include software instalation and stuff).
  • ABAP(Technical Programming)
  • Functional (Example:- MM(Material Management),SD(Sales and distribution),PP(Production planning),FICO(Accounts) ....etc)

All the above are best modules to start with.

  • To choose from the above initially you need some Domain experiance if you want to take up function modules.
  • If you are ok with programming then go with ABAP.
  • If you are Network intrested person the go for BASIS.

I can clearly explain further if you need any clarifications once you decide with Module first.

i would suggest to go PP or PM module since both will be good for mechanical

i seen many organisation placing the Mechanical fresher in PP or PM module

because it will relate to production
