I have worked as an engineer for global corporations


The Chinese engineers I worked with certainly had a lot of knowledge about math and science. My own impression was that they lacked any type of innovation when it came to problem solving or product development. I think it may be attributable to their culture where free thinking is still somewhat discouraged. I would also attribute some of that to their method of learning, where most content is learned through rote memory. I think the German engineers had the best balance, the design reviews with them were always intense and they always had valuable input. They were taught at an early age to solve complex problems that involved numerous concepts. This differs from Chinese education where a young student might be given hundreds of repetitive problems every night.
