 About the Book
Irrespective of discipline and trade-boundaries, pedagogy of engineering-education demands specialty in most of the cases. Teachers' style of teaching [rather to assist students in the process of learning] accords influence of sequels of factors and variables. A bulk of empirical studies across national boundaries proved that engineering education possesses direct causal-effect relationship with the economic development, which further influence the gestalt development of any nation.

Engineering education in the globalized perspective undergoing metamorphic changes in changing paradigms and India has an opportunity to share the experience of the advanced nations and thereby, through juxtaposition, can adopt appropriate policies for strengthening the existing system of engineering education, best suits for national situations and interest.

The studies into engineering education have resulted in producing many educational benchmarks and yet not addressing the core issues of dissatisfaction.

The book addresses such pertinent issues for the engineering practitioners, engineering educators, educational planners and the cross section of the population, concerned with engineering education across globe for the development in its true sense.
