THANJAVUR: Tata Consultancy Services would recruit over 30,000 Engineering graduates worldwide this year, a senior company official has said.

Delivering the 20th Convocation address at Shanmugha Arts and Science Technology and Research Academy(SASTRA) Sunday night, TCS' Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, S Ramadurai said of the 30,000 odd new recruitments, most of them would be from India.

He appealed to Indian engineering graduates to continuously improve their software skills, language skills and multi-disciplinary know-how to stay ahead of others.

Stating that key to success was innovation, he said: "tough environments give an opportunity to innovate and grow".

1. Why are we allowing them to come to school here?
When our jobs are going... right over there?

We're giving them the means to get ahead of us, doing it with a smile, and not even getting a reach-around.

I just... don't get it.

3. A large portion of my education has been in Europe.

Are you suggesting that I (a native-born US citizen) should never return to the US, with my European education among my credentials, and contribute to the US economy?

4. An engineering student's experience here ...
I am a 50 year old, part-time student working on a EE degree, just for fun. I am an egineer with a Chem E degree. I just started the fall semester at Wichita State U, taking a morning class in microelectronics. There are about 30 students in my class, 2 who are female (both Vietnamese). Of the males 5 are black (from Africa I'm assuming), maybe 10 are Americans, 1 is Chinese, with the remainder appearing to be from the Indian subcontinent. This is the seventh EE course I've taken in the past 4 years, and my past class demographics have been similar to those of the current one. For the past 5 years I have always been the top or nearly the top student in my EE classes, probably because older returning students seem to be more serious.

OK, for what it's worth, here is what has been my admittedly limited anecdotal experience:

1) Americans have always been the minority in my EE courses. When I'm walking through the EE building I am much more likely to hear non-English languages from the Indian subcontinent than I am to hear English. I call Wallace Hall (the EE building at WSU) the Indian student union.

2) The American students who have been in my classes and have decided to pursue an engineering degree are never near the top of the class, unless they are older students. In addition, they seem passive and uninterested, never asking questions.

3) There have never been many females in my EE classes, and of those few females, they were usually international students.

4) If I see black classmates on the first day of the semester, I'm always willing to wager 100 to 1 sight unseen that he/she is an international student.

Please don't hijack the thread with the Kansas creationism routine. I would be willing to bet that my experience at WSU is typical of schools around the US. Universities in the US are the best in the world, and anyone in the US can study engineering if they so choose, but American students, generally speaking, just don't want to. Are they lazy? We even have a shortage of engineers in this country. Indian engineering graduates used to try to stay in the US after graduating, but that is changing. This does not bode well for our future. Most of the foreign students in my classes, especially the African students, really have to sacrifice to be here, in ways that few of us would be willing. What's wrong with our culture?
