I was asked an interesting question recently to define what is thought leadership.
“Thought leadership means one would be able to think 5-10 years ahead in terms of what one would want to be known for and contribute significantly as a super-specialist. This could only be achieved from achieving knowledge based excellence in this domain so as to be globally recognise among his / her selective target stakeholders. This should be equally demonstrated by recognitions of high quality in teaching, research and advocacy. For achieving the long term goals, one needs to lay out the different incremental steps of these paths through which he/she will be able to meet the long term targets without compromising the short term goals. These steps frequently need updation depending on contextual changes but the end objective doesn’t shift. However there must be a continued demonstration from his/her own side of striving to move towards that goal.”
“Thought leadership is also about balancing the ability to dream and comprehending the scope of dreams in light of the practical constraints to achieve the dream. Dreams and action, without complementing one another, both lead to failure in realising thought leadership.”

Engineering careers tend to be long and satisfying, and that’s without the addition of an advanced degree. Continue reading “What Are You Supposed to Do with Advanced Degrees in Engineering?”
Recently I had a very interesting chat with a close friend. Why do some of the best Indian Institutes never rank among the top universities in global rankings. What stops us to work harder and achieve global rankings. Why do Indian institutions fare badly in research? I was kind of perplexed in responding how can I explain it to someone outside the ecosystem. The challenge is that I should explain this in less than 500 words, since readers inside the domain of academics, know already about our shortcomings, but readers outside our system may get lost if we explain it in too much of details. But more importantly, I also suffer from a lack of time to pen down my thoughts in a more detailed manner.
All students have to compose a great variety of research papers. All of them are quite different. Of course, they have some things in common. In the meanwhile, they have different purposes and certain peculiarities. This may potentially mess you up. It’s important to learn and memorize all the differences. However, there are some great activities, which will help you to avoid lots of probable obstacles.
The aerospace industry is probably one of the most regulated and complex industries out there, for both industry workers and those interested in starting a career. The salaries on offer are excellent for an aerospace engineer and everyone knows employees in the industry work with aircraft and the like, but what do their tasks involve on a day to day basis?
