Abstract

A high achiever at high school, with high grades and even higher aspirations, Alia relished the prospect of tertiary education. Father had strongly encouraged studying engineering, and without hesitation Alia acquiesced. The profession of engineering — handisa — has a certain cachet in many developing nations; a prestige far greater than that afforded it in certain, already heavily urbanized, Western nations.
