Engineering is a bad profession in the last five years...Most the ME jobs are now being performed offshore..Notably in India.
True, however, the so-called saving incurred by utilizing offshore resources is quickly eaten up by the fact that the jobs take longer than expected, require more
resources, and the quality of the work is extremely poor.
Engineering work sent offshore most always require re-working, starting over, or having to push back program launch dates, all of which increase the overall cost of a particular project, because of the above-mentioned points.
A local company is now in the process of developing offshore resources for a particular job. I will not mention the country, but about 30 of their "Engineers" were brought to the U.S. for a 1 week "crash course " for training in the use of a particular modeling software. Now these 30 individuals with (1 week of experience) are this company's offshore resource. What kind of quality shall we expect here?
