Material and Methods: 60 engineers, 30 from private sector & 3o from government sector were taken from Mumbai (India). Among 30 engineers 15 were female engineers and 15 were male engineers, who were given Perceived stress scale (Cohen et al., 1988) along with semi structured interview. Results: indicated a) Perceived stress level among engineers working in private sector was more than perceived stress level among engineers working in government sector., b) Perceived stress level among female engineers was more than the perceived stress level in male engineers, c) Perceived stress level in female engineers working in private sector was more than perceived stress level in females working in government sector, d) Perceived stress level in male engineers working in private sector was more than perceived stress level in male engineers working in government sector. Conclusion: In nutshell, perceived stress level has a significant impact among male and female engineers working in private sector, as compared to engineers working in government sector.
