Growing Faith in Indian Engineers
Biswadeep Mitra, president and MD of TI India

By 2015, nearly half of the world’s 500 largest companies will have their R&D facilities in India. But it was Texas Instruments (TI), in 1985, that paved the way with its confidence in Indian engineers. Other tech MNCs came in hordes but first for low-value work, and then for technical and managerial talent.

Now, as Biswadeep Mitra, president and managing director of TI India, moves into a global role, his career reflects how MNCs view Indian executives today. Mitra joined TI in 1986, and is relocating to the US as director of industrial systems; he will lead business in multiple regions.

Tech companies have come a long way, says Mitra. Many have Indian engineers leading system and semiconductor designs for products that cater to customers across the world.
