Engineers are the professionals who design, build and test the construction, raw materials and process of the project; they also consider the restrictions imposed by the regulation, feasibility, safety and cost of the project. Engineers play a very significant role in every walk of our lives. They convert the theoretical knowledge of basic sciences into actual products and thus make our lives easy. Engineers possess versatile minds and help in filling the gap between science, technology and the community. Engineers in India contribute greatly to the nation’s technological and industrial growth.
Engineering, once the most reverred profession in India stands as admonished profession now. The coherent story for jobless engineers starts with those who while sitting in oppostition alleges government as “Suit Boot Ki sarkaar“.
While they were soaked in graft, they turned education into business.
Engaging large corpprates to open engineering colleges all across the country by giving away licenses against money even to those which didn’t had even basic amenities to fulfill the needs of an engineering college. Engineering and doctor being the most reverred professions in country, students flocked these colleges with a dream of becoming engineers, credibility is all set of a different issue.
Engineers have been the most instrumental characters for the development of any nation. India is achieving great recognition as a developing nation in the international world and this has been possible due to the significant role of Indian Engineers.
