Engineering the Human Mind and the External World

  • V. V. S. SarmaEmail author


Is the mind of an engineer different from the mind of any other human being? Does a decade of training spanning the period of one’s BE, ME and Ph.D. programs affect the way a person thinks and acts? What does his experience teach him? I felt that introspection is certainly going to be instructive.
