Innovative Engineering and Leadership for Achieving National Goals
This paper can be appropriately started with an epilogue which is a quotation from Dr. Kalam’s Book “Thoughts for Change – We Can Do It”. He writes “Advances in Technology need to give a quantum jump in the Economical Status of the country. Industry developed countries have understood this fact. If we, too, understand it, then we will be one of the leaders in the world…If we change our mindset then India certainly has a big chance of becoming a global leader in the knowledge age”. His book then focuses on Creative Leadership to Support Innovation. Dr. Kalam has related innovation with economic development; technology and engineering.
