Motivation differs from person to person, from industry to industry but all of us need motivation at some point of time especially when things become too challenging to handle. Engineers are no different and with the ever changing needs of the modern society it becomes sometimes overwhelming for them as well. 

Engineering students on the other hand are also in the same boat at times. With pressure from studies, assignment submission, end semester exams, project completion etc. students tend to loose motivation and interest as they go along their engineering course at the university. But as the saying goes there is light at the end of the tunnel and successful students don’t blame the lack of intelligence but blame their lack of motivation. And that’s one of the reasons why you need a motivational video for study. It will not just be a source of motivation for engineering students but will also help them to stay motivated in engineering because they are the source of our future empowerment.
