strongly agreed with you. I would said close to 80% of the lecturers in polytechnic especially those in engineering cluster really cannot make it any more in the rapid pace industry. Most of them are in their late 30 to early 40s.

they would be happy with their 6k salary to get by the next 10-20 years
It happened in the oldest polytechnic....80% of the them are academic inclined with lousy industry/technical skills
