Hope you all doing great out there 🙂
So recently, a question came to my mind, what will happen if everyone in our country become engineers?
A country with full of engineers. That sounds good, doesn’t it?
But does it really help for a countries growth?
But first of all, is India leading towards producing quality engineers?
I have heard that, in any quality engineering course, one will spend about 50-60 hours studying engineering in a week, so that is approximately, around 8 to 10 hours a day. How many students indulging themselves in these hours?
I doubt it 🙁
And when you guys look at the placement took place in India recently 80% o students who studies engineering are unfit to get placed in companies.
There is no way to tell in advance – many people manage to pass the exams and become incompetent engineers.The only way is to listen when someone says,”man that was stoopid!” and even then it could just be them. After all, they just pronounced”stupid” with two “o”s…
Note: 60-hour weeks for a major discipline sounds about normal to me.
There are several kinds of intelligence. Among them are mathematical, emotional, and intuitive forms of intelligence.Mathematical intelligence is one aspect of engineering, but so are the emotional, and intuitive parts. The latter two are used to determine what people REALLY are asking for and whether that will work for them as they envision it will.Schools tend to focus on knowledge, and math, and though that’s a strong foundation, it is not what you use most in the working world.The way you can really tell if you’re the sort who would be a good engineer is if you still think sewing, blocks, engines, legos, radios, paper airplanes, and so on are lots of fun. Engineers are kids who never stopped playing with toys. The toys just get bigger (or smaller) and a lot more expensive. The learning will come with motivation and education.
It is not uncommon here for people who struggle with the technical aspects to go on to do well. If you feel particularly drawn to the field, and you gain satisfaction from it, then you are probably on the right path.Like BOAS you’ll need to be honest with yourself. Many of us have had a couple of false starts before settling for what lights us up … lots never do figure it out and end up focussing on making a living and think it’s the best of a bad lot.
So now if we look in to issues like why our country is leading towards increasing in number of engineers, we come up with few questions.
*.Do you have an aptitude for math and science? (This is more than liking these subjects. You will not need to display the skill levels of a mathematician or scientist, but you will need to demonstrate a competence and that you are comfortable applying this knowledge.)
*When confronted with a problem, do you see things visually or in 3D?
*Do you like to work with other people or in teams?
*Do you like to be creative?
Most of the students do agree for this, but there are some who doesn’t know and doesn’t worry but joins engineering simply like that. 🙁
And contributing themselves for another impotent citizen with no potencial.
So a lot of changes need to be done to avoid all these, which we are going to discuss in next post.
