Engineering Education in India – Present Scenario

Engineering Education

Engineering is one career stream which we Indians have been obsessed with other than Medicine. Parents and parents of parents and further have apparently worshipped this career stream as if not being an engineer is going to lead to the end of this world. Then there was an influx of IT jobs, which led to parents concentrating on computer engineering stream because it promised lucrative opportunities abroad and were money spinners. This led to a flood of engineering colleges in India, but with the only motive of spinning money and hence the quality of engineering reduced drastically. These colleges took a piggy bank ride on the IT sectors opportunities and churned out engineers to fill their requirements. The quality of education was reduced to an extent that a recent report showed that only 1.4% of the computer engineers could write code that was functionally correct and efficient. This report is a mirror to the present state of engineering education in India and a call to the system experts to work around some solution of it.

One of the main reasons behind this state of engineers is selection of this stream not as a matter of choice but as a matter of pressure from the family and greed for a high paying career path. Students take up engineering, become engineers, start working for multinational companies and then due to the lack of interest and lack of skills start feeling unhappy. As a result the upcoming generation has started picking up streams that interest them primarily and these include design as well as law.

While there is no denying that in general engineering is a stream that is going to be there forever, but its high time that we come of age and work towards creating engineers that are ready for life not just a job or career. It’s high time that we go beyond the theoretical knowledge to making our students future ready engineering with critical thinking and decision making abilities so that they can adapt to any other stream irrespective of the job switch.

Change is the only constant with the world today and innovation is the key to it. So, creating engineers that are future ready can go a long way in bringing a progressive change in the present engineering education ecosystem.

Tips For Cracking The Computer Science Degree

computer engineering course

A computer science degree can pay earn you a fortune but to crack it if not in flying colors, you have to pour your heart and soul into the course. So, how are you going to make it feel like a cake walk even though you are already aware that it is a pathway filled with pots and holes, bumps and more. Here are few tips to help you sail through your four rigorous years of computer science without hanging like a substandard computer on and off. 🙂

Plan ahead – Plan ahead – A computer engineering course is no cake walk. And like it is for other engineering degrees, following the methodology of studying a night or couple of nights before the examination is definitely going to sink your ship. So, plan well ahead of your exams and work backward if you may so that you are all ready when the exam dates are announced and can give your exams in a stress free manner.

Do not skip lectures – Many a students attend practicals but tend to skip their lectures. But, attending lectures is apparently a good idea because many a time the lecturers set papers and include topics that they have covered in the lectures. Also, you get to be in good books of your lecturer or professor and you can also resolve you queries and subject difficulties by seeking your professors help.

Be Practical – As much important it is to have theoretical knowledge, it is equally important to have practical knowledge because taking up a job or your performance at a job is more about computer application than theory. Specializing in one particular area is a much better idea because you may take up a sub field of your choice and try to master it.

Upgrade. Upgrade. Upgrade – Yes, this holds true today with most of the careers but with computer science more so and it is about survival of the fittest. So, you need to be abreast with the new technology as a successful computer engineer. You might as well take up online courses or part time courses to keep yourself up to date.

Be a Team Player – You might like to work solo but when on a project at work a computer science student or at work as an employee you will have to work as a part of a team. Even as student you will be doing engineering projects with a partner or in a team. So, be ready to play the game as a team player and understand that team work can take you places as well.

Computer Science degree is a tough nut to crack but with a disciplined approach to study you can clear your examinations and graduate as a computer engineer.

Under Water Robots – Advances in Ocean Exploration

Ever imagined tennis ball size robots spread over the oceans for studying the mysteries that the oceans have been hiding for decades and centuries beneath them? You know what, no need to imagine because they are already a reality now. Yes, a study has revealed that miniature robots are all set to change the face of ocean exploration and are simply waiting deployment orders. Known as the M-AUEs, the smartness of these miniature machines lies in recording 3D movements of the oceans internal waves, apparently a distant dream for run of the mill instruments used until now. underwater-robot-swarm-photoAccording to the makers, the concept of the same lies in being at multiple places simultaneously, which unfortunately wasn’t possible earlier with the conventional instruments. For example when moving a finger in a specific region of water, it was never about reaching out to more than one place at a time until the invention of these mini robots. But with the help of these swarm robots, the feat of being at 16 places at the same time has been successfully achieved.

As mentioned earlier the main objective behind creating such robots was investigating the movement of ocean’s internal waves. Further to prove the theory about aspects of plankton’s ecology and that it was due to the oceans currents pushing and pulling the plankton together and back apart such a device was need of the hour. Three dimensional instrumentation capabilities were required for the same, which at that point of time, the scientists did not possess. But with the help of swarm robots viewing the theory that was based on water density, internal wave dynamics and ocean physics could be possible in real time that too in 3D.

And this is not it-Robot swarms also have numerous applications other than 3D mapping of internal wave dynamics and offer immense possibilities in analysis of the oceans as well as other areas. Some of the examples presented by the makers under their applications include using them along with microphones to hear out the dolphins and whales, modifying their instrumentation and using them in oil spills for tracking the emissions of harmful toxins, to name a few.

These little robots are apparently, one of the best things to have happened to human kind recently as they would undoubtedly be able to resolve unanswered queries about the ocean dynamics globally. What’s more, the next generation of them is already in pipeline with features like added functionality and decreased cost additions.

ENGINEERS OPTING FOR MBA-THE CURRENT SCENARIO

Engineering to MBA

Presently, if you check out the percentage of Engineering students pursuing MBA after graduation, you would be surprised to find that it is a staggering one. The reason behind diverting from their technical field to that of business management could be many. We all are aware of the big fat salaries, social status, corporate career and more that business management post graduates get.

MBA After B.tech

Apparently, it has also been a legacy of sorts. Not just today, but for decades, many a parents have rarely thought beyond the two fields engineering and medical, in India. They just sow it inside your mind as a child, that your ultimate goal in life is to become an engineer or a doctor, and try to nurture the dream of theirs through you.

After engineering it has mostly been MBA. Even today parents and their wards eye the prestigious IITs for undergraduate degrees and IIMs for post graduation. IITs are considered as the Mecca and Madina of Education here in India. If you clear your JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) and get admission to IIT, then you belong to the elite club of Engineers and your parents feel as if they are on the seventh heaven.

Even though, the scenario has changed quite a bit over the past few years there is still a majority of the population that cannot think past engineering and medical education. That is the reason even today there is so much demand for engineering seats and over 85% of the management seats at IIM are occupied by engineering graduates.

Some of the Compelling reasons for doing an MBA after Engineering
1. Engineering degree not enough to get big fat salary packages.
2. Highly advantageous if planning to foray in entrepreneurship at some point of time.
3. Broaden your work horizons from technical jobs to banking, finance, fmcg sectors and more.
4. A lucrative and comparatively easier option in case you don’t want to pursue MS or a Phd.

Yes as said before, doing an MBA after engineering is going to skyrocket your earnings extensively. Today, corporate’s out there are all set to shell out six figure salaries to management post graduates with an engineering background. The companies prefer technical backgrounds in comparison to science, arts or commerce background. With such lucrative packages available, we are just so attracted that we fail to look beyond it. Alas, the ward’s interest or liking for a subject or sport or music or art is just buried somewhere beneath this dream of their parents or the pressures of earning and financial growth.

The Future of Engineering Education in India – An Overview

Women in Engineering

The engineering sector is brimming with limitless opportunities and is undergoing a notable change, with the advent of technological innovations and scientific advances. It is engineering education that has to work over time to keep up with the advances, the opportunities and the challenges in the sector.

Future of Engineering Education in India

To meet these underlying challenges and make the most of the available opportunities in Engineering, the need of the hour is to make the engineers of today ready for the industry tomorrow. The global perspective and dimensions have to be considered herein as well because Engineering is in itself a global industry. Considering the potential of India to become a global technology leader in areas like chemicals, automobiles and more, it is all the more important to work upon high education and research areas in India.

This means that engineering courses that the Engineering institutions in India are offering need to be improved for new competences and made interdisciplinary. Research in Engineering is possibly and other important cornerstone for paving the path to breakthroughs in engineering. It is known to be the main source of knowledge locally, regionally, nationally or internationally. The modern research is not only about learning processes but on educational techniques as well. There are numerous leading institutes in India that have already taken a step in the direction by empower students with the required skills and knowledge for optimum impact.

One of the approaches to adopt could be to go for adult learning methods using active learning instead of the traditional teacher led approach which apparently hinders the growth of the recipient. It is time to make optimum use of the innovative tools of teaching and learning and make the whole process of imparting education seamless, flexible and interesting for the recipients. Also, another fact is that engineering is expanding while experiencing diversification as well. The domino effect, a rise in interdisciplinary studies has been observed. Interdisciplinary skills are about learning to analyze, communicate effectively and resolve issues from workplace to workplace. Hence, introduction of social science and other relevant disciplines makes sense. This interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or holistic approach in engineering is definitely a stepping stone in the direction.

Thus, a focused approach where the curriculum includes well designed academic programs, educational projects and policy statements that are analyzed thoroughly in order to provide sustainability in engineering education seems to be the requirement for a shining future of engineering sector already.

ENGINEERING DRAWING – A SCIENCE OR ART

Engineering drawing is rather a combination of both art and science. To build any structure out of scrap requires conceptualization, ideation and implementation. The idea has to projected first on the sheet of paper before taking it further or implementing it in reality. Engineering drawing is the process which deals with projecting the idea or image in the mind to paper. It is a kind of technical drawing with complete specifications for engineered items. Engineering drawing may be about technical drawings but it is one of the toughest subjects, ask any engineering student and you will know. A sound knowledge of drawing is vital otherwise its a tough road ahead with the subject.

Engineering drawing is a beautiful blend of artistry and science that has the ability or power to process your dreams to products of reality. It is an art because it involves a lot of drawing, that to complex form of drawing. It is also a science because, art is free from boundaries or rules and regulations of any sort and is a purely putting down your imagination on paper, while science is bound by rules, regulations and restrictions. Here is a run down the sub categories under engineering drawing.

MACHINE DRAWING / MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DRAWINGmechanical-engineering drawing
Mechanical engineering drawing deals with machine drawing. It is apparently a drawing for representing machine lines or components while abiding to certain set of rules. All the details, both internal and external are provided by the machine drawing.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING DRAWINGec drawing
Electrical engineering drawing involves assembly and working drawing of mechanical and electrical items, instruments and their parts.

 

civil engineering drawing

CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWING

Civil Engineering drawing is all about residential, commercial and industrial construction drawing.

 

 

DRAWING INSTRUMENTS
The drawing instruments for engineering drawing include a T-square or a drafter, stencils, drawing board and the regular pencil, rubber, sharpener things.

Civil Engineering Career Works – Why And How?

Civil engineering is said to be one of the oldest streams of engineering. For example the oldest structures like the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum of Rome, the Pyramids of Giza, the statue of Rio or coming back home the breathtaking Tajmahal – all stand witness to the birth and evolution of civil engineering. This is one stream of engineering where everything is visible and that too in big size, unlike some other fields of engineering. Civil engineering is an important stream because any country’s socio – economical status depends upon the infrastructure of it a lot. Be it mammoth structures like dams, bridges, airports, docks and harbours or corporate and residential projects, all are a result of civil engineering. civil-eng There are always two sides to a coin and even Civil Engineering comes with its own pros and cons. As a civil engineer you get an opportunity to realize many projects that are just drawings on pieces of paper and the results are for every one to. On the flip side you have to be ready to sweat it out by working on projects on site locations away from the jazzy air-conditioned offices. Though if you are into research, teaching or planning, you do get the privilege of a table job indoors, so its not all that bad. 😀 Well, if you are really passionate about the field and are ready to do what it takes, then you can surely go for it.civil_engger-work You can opt for an Engineering degree or diploma. A diploma can be done after 10th or 12th and a degree after 12th. A diploma in engineering is a quick way to get into the field but it is always advisable to go for a diploma only when you are going to pursue a degree after wards. A simple diploma in engineering is not going to take you anywhere unless you plan to open your own construction company plus no promotions in your kitty too, due to lack of a bachelors or masters degree. So, it is always advisable to go for degree only. You may enroll for masters and doctorate degree as well if you want to pursue higher education for teaching or research purposes. These days national and state entrance exams are a must to get admission to degree courses, so you need to prepare well to get a good score. The fees for a civil engineering degree course is around a lac rupees per year for private colleges and around a 20 to 25 thousand for government colleges.

Present day, civil engineering field is known to be a high paying field as the demand of civil engineers has been increasing by leaps and bound and it has apparently outdone the supply not only in India, but across the globe namely Asia, Africa and more.
