The proposed volume seeks to introduce readers to what it means to be an engineer in India. It accomplishes this by providing answers to five basic questions: (1) How did engineering education and engineering practices emerge in India?, (2) Who has counted as an engineer in India and who has not?, (3) How have engineers been trained/educated in India and where have they tended to work?, (4) What emerged as key issues for engineers and engineering during the early 21st century?, (5) How do engineers maintain their identities with the new trend to move to management after graduation and work? The volume is designed especially for non-Indian engineering students, working engineers, and non-engineers who plan to study, research, or work with Indian engineers inside as well as outside India. It will help them understand dominant practices of engineering education and work in India. It will enable them to discern differences among Indian engineers and between engineers and other technical workers. It will help them develop more sophisticated expectations about Indian engineers and enable them to ask more informed questions. As a contributor to the subseries on "Engineering Countries," it will help readers become better critical analysts of their own assumptions and predispositions, whether as engineers or non-engineers. The volume will also be of interest to Indian engineers and non-engineers, enabling them to better understand the emergence of engineers and engineering in India.
