The world runs on the works and achievements of engineers. Their importance to our lifestyle and conveniences cannot be overstated. Yet, engineering is not a glamorous profession. In India, becoming an engineer is no longer a prestigious thing, perhaps because the country is churning out engineers by the lakhs without consideration of quality. The fresh engineers themselves are not so much interested in a profession as in a handsome pay package. Indeed, it is more prestigious to say that one is overseas on an on-site project rather than be proud about the work being done.
Where does this leave us? The future is going to be grim if the trend continues. We need passionate engineers who will carry on the great works of others gone before them. Engineers of the future, more than filling their minds with equations, need to be inspired. This book by Ioan James serves that inspiration.
