Whats its like to be an Engineer in 21st century !

Well, Engineering used to be a huge impressive course and was considered the next big thing to a DOCTOR. People used to think WOW! your ward is doing Engineering… hmm… Not any more dude !!!

These days, with the ever growing competition and over 3 crore engineers (including me) passing out every year in INDIA itself, nothing remains what used to be a impressive thing to do. These days a B.Tech or B.E. engineer gets around 15k to 20k max as a fresher, which is same amount as a B.Com. B.A. or any other graduate may get in a CALL CENTRE…

The jobs at engineering level sucks a lot out of a person. Morning 9am to 8pm Continuously in front of a COMPUTER busting the brains, eyes literally CHURNING out program codes. To do this 6 days a week and get Rs 15,000 thats a big set back…

In the race of getting a job, an engineer looks out to learn new technologies, languages, courses etc etc and spending infinite time STUDYING. Then thinking of post-graduation in the form of M.Tech, M.S. or M.B.A…. Ya MBA, the same MBA which a BA, BBA, BCom, BSc, and all other B!!!!!! graduate student wants to pursue. When asked the reason for pursuing MBA, one simple, one common answer is what we get “Yaar, aaj kal MBA ki bina paisa kahaan hai” So MBA is a lottery ticket, if one gets it he earns, and wastes his/her engineering 4 years BTECH…

Well whatever may be the drawback, people like me and may many others will be doing engineering, not just for the sake of it, but for the love of it !!!

Engineering you ROCK !!!
