Re: Recall: Offshore Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The standards of engineering you talked about in your message is
stereotyping  both for US and for cheaper (poor) nations. For an average US
Engineering firm, it is not very un-common for the supervisor to sign the
plans at first glance. Also there are many international projects facing
design problems although they were engineered by high priced American and
European firms. Comparing Engineering standards of industrialized and
developing countries is comparing bananas and oranges. However, offshore
design make sense more than ever due to technology advancements. If due to
economical conditions a country can not afford free ways and Sky scrapers as
in the States, that does not means that there are no capable engineers to
design that. Correct me if I am wrong, one of the designer for Sear's Towers
in Chicago was from Pakistan or Bangladesh. There are many capable Engineers
from third world countries are working in the States. What if some of them
want to go backhome and still want to do work for their employers in US ?.
What is wrong in this ? Will they loose all their ability and competence
because they are no longer residing on US land ?. I don't think so.
