Fast Food and Fast Engineering

Nobody wants to "waste" time cooking these days and so we have McDonalds, KFC etc. etc. Surprisingly engineering students don't want the hard work these days and so we have some individuals and organizations (surprising aint it) that will give you fast access to whatever you want for your engineering degree. I am sure that a final year electronics project can soon be ordered as a Number 3 with Fries and Coke on the side (Fries and coke will keep you busy while the project is being cooked). A Computer Science project could be Number 2. No disrespect to Electronics ... you could be assigned number 2 ... just take it.

We would be eventually creating a pool of engineering resources that would definitely be good at one thing if not anything else - Sourcing. Well thats a lot of work by itself. Finding the right person who can do your project for you, negotiating the price and the timeline, following up to see if the work is on track and finally getting the deliverable and releasing the payment. Lot of work.

Kids are learning quickly .. not necessarily the right things, but hey at least they are learning. Their parents are spending a lot of money for their "Engineering" education. So what who wants to be a techie anymore .. management is in and hey you wont even need a management degree once you go through this entire process of "getting your project done". Two birds in a shot. Way to go.

Welcome the amazing engineers that we are and will be getting. They are not just engineers, they are adept at management too.

  1. [amit bhandwale] I read about this some time ago; turns out this was prevalent during our engg years as well. Sad state of affairs ...
