I was a student at NED from 94 to 98. And I certainly can endorse that self learning was the prime source of acquiring knowledge. I think as you are surrounded by highly fertile minds, its natural to learn from each other.
It is my strong believe that NED is an outstanding undergrad school not because of the the teachers or facilities but because of the students that are selected each year.
true... as i got in college i used to think that it was all upto the teachers to mould the students into engineers but as time passed by i started realizing that this wasnt really working out and that teachers were just filling out their formalities i.e to get their syllabi covered by the students. Now almost in my last year i believe the only way to grow rich is to teach yourself, the ability to retrieve knowledge by any means to tackle practical problems is the fundamental concept that is unmatched.
