India Needs CIVIL Engineers

Its well known that India produces excellent computer and software engineers.  The entire world employs these experts to help in many aspects of internet technology.  But this specialty comes at a cost.

India's infrastructure is in poor shape.  Road are filled with potholes and bridges are ready to collapse all over the country.  It can take hours for commuters to travel to jobs less than 20 miles away.

The power grid is in such bad shape that many companies keep power generators on hand to keep themselves up and running.

Vikas Bajaj's article in the New York Times (August 25, 2010) illustrates this dire situation.

India has committed $500 billion to improving infrastructure in the next few years.  Unfortunately, there are not enough civil engineers to meet this momumental task.

While it once was a well-sought-after career in India, salaries for civil engineers have not kept up with many comtemporary careers and therefore has lost its share of talent.

However, with the amount of stimulus money that India has wisely targeted for infrastructure investment, changes can't be long in coming.  Supply will equal demand and civil engineers will begin to earn larger salaries and/or payments in line with their share of infrastructure improvment money.

Now's the time for engineers and potential engineers to answer the call not only in India but everywhere for infrastructure improvement and development.
