Being Engineer. Pun Intended

I have met many people who underestimate an Engineer. Forget people, some engineers underestimate themselves! They should know that an Engineer cannot be judged by his grades or the views his HOD has for him/her. There are many qualities that an engineer possesses, but are not found in his CV :P Below are few of those qualities that gives the engineer an extra edge :-

Career Scope-
An engineer can become software developer, bank manager, IAS officer, Business manager or even a BPO assistant.

There won't be anything called "Hot chick" in engineering college hence they understand their values and start respecting every girl. The most common dialogue on the opening day of an engineering college is, 
“Bhai, iss saal bhi koi khaas ladkiyan nahi hai!” 

Working under pressure-
Even though he (might have) never experienced "one night stand" ever but he knows how to survive examinations via "one night studies"!! An engineer can finish his syllabus in one night, believe me! An engineer can build a car, spaceship and they even can make a time machine.  However, he just can’t build a relationship with a girl. 

Engineers love to sleep, but they never go to bed early. Nights are not made to be spent sleeping, lectures are.

Engineers are not lazy, they are just highly motivated to procrastinate. For engineers, every course apart from engineering is easy. They can translate English into binary!

Engineers love everybody, apart from their faculty, project head, Deans, scientists, new boyfriend of their ex-girl friends, authors of their curriculum books, power cutoffs and slow internet.

Team Work-
Team Projects and group seminars might have failed to teach them this quality but mass-bunks and proxy attendance surely teach the value of team work.

Worst Nightmare-
An Engineers’s worst nightmare is a teacher taking the class but not taking the attendance.

Never Argue-
Never argue with an engineer because arguing with Engineers is like killing the mosquito on your cheek, you might or might not kill it, but you’ll end up slapping yourself. Same applies for the viva sessions with external examiners, Engineers teach them new concepts eventually :P

Engineers get to know that world is full of dishonest people, when they join the college, because they have read the words like lavishing infrastructure, supporting faculty, 100% placements in their college brochures. Also when they get to know that girl's photo they saw on brochure doesn't exist. :P

Network and relations-
None of the relatives or any friend's mom ask them before but once they graduate everyone calls them at their home (so that they can fix their table fans, mixers or radio transistors). They recognize people with the mobile phone they carry and their laptop configurations rather than their names or faces.

Fast learning-
Even highly qualified faculty might have failed in teaching them a topic, but they will remember every word of it when their friend dictates it before entering the examination hall. Engineers have no life and they can prove it mathematically! :P

Learn by Fun-
Playing tic tac toe during class, late night counter strike tournaments, watching T20 with friends and completing Angry birds stages during lab sessions gives the engineers more competence than any other sport.

An Engineer knows nothing, but only an Engineer knows this. ;)

Two engineers see a hot chick in the mall, first reaction: ABE dekh be, Gazab!! Eventually, the second reaction: jaane de yaar aukat ke bahar hai. :P Engineers also sacrifice their clean shaved look, to look more hard-working during exams for self motivation.

Resource managements-
Engineers know that a 3G connection and 4Gb pen drive is the first requirement before preparing for any practical exams. They also know the value of every single bar in Wifi connectivity symbol and phone batteries. Their xerox bills are higher than their mobile bills!


Getting a 40 out of 100 is heaven for an Engineer. 40 marks ki keemat tum kya janoo Ramesh babu ;)

Staying Healthy-
Engineers never compromise with their health, they stay fit and immune due to regular dosage of maggi and samosas. Having food at Punjabi dhabas and tea at extra-(un)hygienic tapri is the part of their diet.

“Engineering is not just a degree... it teaches you the way of living life like a warrior. Engineering gives a perception and attitude. It teaches you the art of survival.
Next time you meet an Engineer, show some respect… don't ask his grades instead offer a friendly hi-five or a Buddy-Punch!”

 15th September - Happy Engineer's Day! Cheers!
