A person is an Engineer because of self-belief not because of degree !

Anyone easily gets fascinated by word "Engineer" and as a result of this about half of our world is filled with engineers. Students get enroll in an engineering college because of three main reasons : some love technology, some have their family pressure and some love the word "Engineer".

Today, in most of the engineering colleges no one cares to learn engineering or even understand what actually engineering is. And the students who want to explore, they get deprived of it because of the education system. Year after year students come and go just like a raw material to a machine as input. No one cares about the output. Students never try to explore philosophy of engineering, they just read what book teach them and save it in their so called "memory". They don't try to understand the reason of reading, just because their curriculum is not allowing them.

As a result of this each and every student wandering to explore had to suffer and is suffering. And lastly the sufferer blames the teachers, then the teachers blames the administration and finally administration blames the education system. And when finally the student gets a degree then where should he stand, among 40 lac engineers ? Where is his own identity among the other engineers ? Has he got any practical knowledge or any experience ? Everything stops here..

An engineering student should have the guts to change the world; dream to achieve and power to lighten the world. Without a feeling of self-belief in you "You cannot be an Engineer". And believe me the day when your heart says to you "You are an Engineer" from that moment onwards nobody can stop you to reach the zenith, the power is yours their onwards.

An engineer just need for this is practical approach, experience in technology field, knowledge of engineering philosophy and unbeaten curiosity. An Engineer is because of self-belief, not because of degree. In today's world maximum of the engineers are certified engineers (with only degree), whereas very few are engineers with self-belief (real world makers).

Choice is yours, which way you want to proceed...
