The difference between Engineers and Engineering graduates has been portrayed beautifully. Every aspect of engineering has been explained clearly. The best part is the difference between "HOBBIES AND TIME WASTERS". Being an Engineering student ...

We have millions of engineers graduating every year, but still the industry is not happy with the standard of knowledge which an engineer has. Though we are having the engineering degrees, but we lack the skill required for the industry. Even ...

Special about this book: No difficult words, sentences, no unrealstic ...

The book has a collection of stories that inspired him to take on this journey. He looks at the perspectives of fresh engineering aspirants and their parents. The trials and tribulations that one goes through...

Must read for Engineers!

I am a Psychology student with catholic views, which brought me a interest in understand knowing how an ideal Engineering graduate should be like. I gained myriad of insights through it.

A lot of students choose Engineering as their career without even knowing what it is. I would appreciat...
