The Santa Clause did not bring the good news for ISRO. The ambitious GSLV program has failed for the second time. GSLV stands for Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-F06) which earlier failed on April 15, 2010. The satellite was launched from Sriharikota, situated about 100 kilometers from Chennai in South India. Just 2 minutes after the launch, the satellite deviated from its path and exploded in the air. The parts of the aircraft plunged into the Bay Of Bengal.

There is no...

Well, as promised, here's my next post on artificial artificial intelligence. Now those of you who read my previous post on artificial intelligence might remember that artificial intelligence fails in certain cases wherein there is human intervention needed. This is a big problem in automating stuff.
There are certain things that computers can do better than human beings while there are some other things that humans can do better than computers. The example of former is...

What is Artificial Intelligence, well Wikipedia says and I quote - Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI textbooks define the field as "the study and design of intelligent agents" where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success. John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1956, defines it as "the science and engineering of making intelligent...

As an engineer, most of the times we are thinking about building something new, improving something that's already there or sometimes even entirely changing the way something works. But there is something that each engineer wants to build and that is his/her career. Now as much as it is important to be talented and hardworking it is equally important to get opportunities to showcase or utilize your talent. Often we find ourselves among the best in former but lacking in the latter. And that's...

Typical fresh engineering graduate Interviews follow a pattern. I'm extending Kartik's post titled <em><em>strategizing</em> for interviews</em>. In his posts, Kartik (KGV) talks about preparing well for your favorite topic in interview. I think it's very important that every engineer must prepare well to handle the question, "What's your favorite engineering subject?".

Let's first find out why is this...

Well, I was reading through Kaustubh's post about the interview question 'your greatest weakness' and as much as I agree with whatever 'The Big K' has written over there, I thought there are some more insights that I could offer on this topic. Now I have been through a lot of interviews and have been successful in most of them (Notable exclusion of IIM-L where I was wait-listed after the interview). Here's what I have found through my experiences of interviews on either sides of the table....

While browsing the Internet, I stumbled upon the term 'Precision Engineering'. I wasn't familiar with the term, so decided to find out more information about it. Upon search, I found the following information which I think you might find useful -

1. Precision Engineering is a sub-branch of various major engineering disciplines like Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering & Optical Engineering.

2. It's mostly about design & study of machines, fixtures and structures...

The campus recruitment season is on and many engineering students are preparing for the recruitment tests and personal interviews. One of the most common questions asked in interview is "What are your weaknesses" or "What is your biggest weakness?". This simple question is taken as a 'tricky' question by many candidates. But the reality is that it is indeed a simple and straight question.

Many candidates think that they are 'selling' themselves to the recruiters. Obviously, if you are...
