India in Dire Need of Civil Engineers


The Indian government aims to spend $500 billion on infrastructure by 2012 and twice that amount in the following five years.

The problem is a dearth of engineers — or at least the civil engineers with the skill and expertise to make sure those ambitious projects are done on time and up to specifications.

And I used to think my dad was foolish to recommend that like him, I too should consider becoming a structural engineer.
