The year 2019 will mark the 51st anniversary of Engineer's Day in India and the 158th anniversary of the birth of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya.
Engineer's Day, why is it celebrated on this date ?
The engineer is the professional capable of studying and applying the different branches of technology to solve the problems facing society day by day. Of course, this profession, born in times of the Industrial Revolution, should have its special day to honour engineers.
To be an engineer requires an excellent command of mathematics and science and a deep knowledge of the forces of nature, as well as enough inspiration and imagination to bring all kinds of ideas to reality.
India has a proven history of producing world class engineers. It is these engineers who then collaborate with others like them to invent, innovate and simplify the most challenging problems facing the world. Whether illuminating the most remote villages of Ladakh to locate a man on the planet Mars. The era we live in; every company needs innovation and improvement in the quality of life in general. Engineers also play a fundamental role there. Traditionally, an engineer was someone who conceptualized, designed, tested structures and built things that had a certain utility attached. In modern times, the definition has undergone a complete overhaul and the expectations of an engineer have also changed significantly. Today, an engineer is someone who creates, innovates, invents, dreams, solves problems, tests and investigates, all combined in one. Engineers are now expected to break all stereotypes, break the glass ceiling and emerge as leaders, entrepreneurs and visionaries. 'Engineer-cum-Entrepreneur' is a new species that has emerged in which the engineer is also expected to have an entrepreneurial mindset in a way that can take full ownership of a product that he creates, in order to obtain the profitability of the company.
Returning to engineering, a question that always comes to mind is whether it is mandatory to have a formal degree in engineering to be called an engineer. Think about it. There are many engineering products that you find or use in your daily life. Are these engineering products really all developed by engineers? Of course, the names that comes to mind immediately when talking about engineers and inventions are very credible and recognized names like Alexander Graham Bell, Wright Brothers and Henry Ford. Powerful names to keep in mind. However, have you ever stopped to think about the origin of several products you use every day that apparently go unnoticed? These are products that are relatively smaller, do not cost much but have a very high frequency of use. What we often don't realize is that these are also engineering wonders in themselves that require a special level of inspiration, ideation, creativity, competence and experience. Take, for example, the straw you use to sip your drinks. Have you ever bothered to think how easy it is to fold the straw?
Engineering day in India
Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya was internationally popular for his brilliance and his great achievement in the use of water resources in India. This is also important to know that worldwide engineering day is celebrated on different dates.
Engineers are the professionals who design, build and test the construction, raw materials and project process; they also consider the restrictions imposed by the regulation, feasibility, safety and cost of the project.
Engineers play a very important role in all areas of our lives. They convert the theoretical knowledge of the basic sciences into real products and, therefore, make our lives easier.
Engineers have versatile minds and help fill the gap between science, technology and the community. Engineers in India contribute greatly to the technological and industrial growth of the nation.
Why do we celebrate engineering day ?
The day of the engineers is celebrated to give honour to the great works of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya towards the development of several places that are the most developed cities of present-day India.
How engineer’s day is celebrated
Different cities have different methods to celebrate Engineer's Day. Engineering is a vast field with different specializations, such as electrical, technical, computer, mechanical, etc. and, therefore, different departments require celebrations with a different style. While government companies follow the annual theme for engineers' day, private companies can follow the issue or decide their own issue.
Engineers play a great role in the advancement and economic growth of any company and, therefore, no matter how they celebrate the annual day, the important thing is that they should rejoice in the annual function to stay motivated and continue with the great work that perform.
Festivals play a significant role in our day to day lives. We worship different Gods and accordingly there are different festivals that we celebrate to mark the occasion. Festivals provide us with an opportunity to spend quality time with our family, friends and relatives. There are so many rituals attached to the festivals and this makes the entire concept of celebration of festivals even more colorful & exciting.
