Then they are breaking the law if they are paying less for equally competent engineers. True, but engineers are hired to a specific level, or grade. A grade 4 (I forget the exact words - It's been years.) can be assigned to the same project as a grade 7, or even a 9. (At the Boeing company.) And there is a range of salaries for a grade 4 engineer. In my observation, the Indian engineers are able to do the calculations (especially if there is a computer program involved), but they sometimes lack the mechanical experience of working on their cars as teen agers or on their bicycles as kids. (Maybe not today - there are a lot of bicycles in India.) Memorizing formulas does not necessarily make one a good engineer.I hasten to add that I have known some very capable Indian engineers. Somewhat less for the Koreans I have known - they have memorized every formula in the book but sometimes have no mechanical sense. CNC... OK, color me snobbish - or even prejudiced.
