The college teachers have been aware of the industry requirements of students such as knowledge of latest engineering developments, ethical practices, good communication and team play, flexible and lifelong learning and multitasking. However, a neglected aspect by the teachers, but essential for the industry, is their role in the development of critical thinking skills in the students. In particular, the students need to be made aware of numerous errors of the intellect while still at the college. Published literature on Engineering Education has missed this important aspect. The author recollects what his teacher taught him fifty five years ago at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay where he was a student. The memories are supplemented with information and examples from a later period.

Abstract


The college teachers have been aware of the industry requirements of students such as knowledge of latest engineering developments, ethical practices, good communication and team play, flexible and lifelong learning and multitasking. However, a neglected aspect by the teachers, but essential for the industry, is their role in the development of critical thinking skills in the students. In particular, the students need to be made aware of numerous errors of the intellect while still at the college. Published literature on Engineering Education has missed this important aspect. The author recollects what his teacher taught him fifty five years ago at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay where he was a student. The memories are supplemented with information and examples from a later period.
