I am in final year B.Tech Electronics in a reputed institute in Mumbai.
We have our campus placements going on.Till now we have had core companies like Siemens, L&T ,Tata power (R&D) ,Tata Elxsi,etc....I assume we would have investment banks coming in at a later stage.Last year we had Lehman brothers , Goldman sachs ,etc. taking part in the recruitment process.CAN anyone please tell me the job profile one can expect of having in such financial institutions. Please stress on the role of an engineer who has financial knowledge...its importance....advantage of an engineer over a commerce grad....PLEASE BE QUICK

I think engineering and finance is a fascinating combination. Investment Banks use engineers in their Derivatives, Financial Engineering departments. For a good discussion on financial engineering you can see willmott's forum.
Investment Banking related sites also give u plenty of Information. Probability and good Statistical understanding is necessary for effective working in Derivatives and Risk Management.
Wishing You all the best

After visiting willmott's forum and doing some research on wiki , i found out some interesting things :
1. Engineers have good knowledge of C++, MATHEMATICS ,etc. which is extremely important for a "quant analyst"...as they are integral part of computational finance.
2. Computational finance is a field which helps a quant analyst to develop robust models which can be used to make decisions,judge stock prices,etc.
3. Strategic planning , risk management, derivatives trading,etc. require good knowledge of topics such as probability , linear algebra, etc.
4. As such topics are part of syllabus covered for an engineering student....
engineer + quant analyst formula rocks for investmant banking firms.
