This is our Blog No. 25! We feel good sharing our thoughts, and cajoling you to share yours…
As we go along, we feel the need to think more and more deeply not just because the issues are chronic, but also to ensure that, with your participation, we set in changes which will help us meet our objective (?…you know!).
Going back to our previous, i.e. Blog No. 24, where we started analyzing a very important aspect – ensuring a professional framework which will keep every engineering brain in the best of spirit to be contributing till “heart feeds the brain with oxygen”. Obviously we mean to keep every engineering brain like that of a child – with indefatigable freshness to relish the thrill of its every action – with the kind of motivation which needs apparently “no good reason” to sustain itself but for its joy and fulfillment.
We identified a few obstacles:
(i) Shaky career start with shaky engineering basics
(ii) Not-right-professional environment to correct the above and develop solid expertise
(iii) Inability of the support infrastructure to support “anything and everything” making a career in engineering not so fulfilling as it could be
Before we attempt to identify the changes to overcome each of the above, let us look into the effect of each:
(i) Leads to day-to-day professional discomfort, dissatisfactory career achievements, and, of course, poor engineering affecting the quality of end products
(ii) Leads to sustenance of the above for “a life time” with “no ray of a hope for a better tomorrow”
(iii) Leads to loss of skilled manpower to other professions, apart from suboptimal performance of those who continue in engineering
Doesn’t the situation require an immediate treatment?
Please share your ideas and emotions – we need both!
