I bought the following books from Cognifront (1) Improving engineering education - some suggestions (2) Mitigating deficiencies of technical education. Happy and very proud see that there is somebody like you in India who thinks about the development of engineering education. You make a difference because you are an embodiment of knowledge and boldness. Many of your opinions are very straight and to the point. Meanwhile, I am attaching the handout of a practical approach to mitigate many of the points raised by you. I hope I will be able to meet you one day.
