Engineers are professionals who invent, design, and build complex systems, structures, and materials in order to fulfil functional objectives and deliverables, keeping in mind factors such as practicality, regulation, safety, and cost. As a group, engineers are critical to a country’s long-term growth and progress.
The word ‘engineer’ is derived from the Latin words ‘ingeniare’ (which means ‘to create or generate’) and ‘ingenium’ (which means ‘cleverness’).
Every year on September 15, India, along with Sri Lanka and Tanzania, celebrate National Engineer’s Day to recognise and honour the achievements of the great engineer Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. An expert in irrigation techniques and flood disaster management, Sir MV was not just a great civil engineer but also served as the 19th Diwan of Mysore from 1912 to 1919. He is considered the foremost nation-builders, creating modern marvels upon which modern India was built.
Today, we celebrate the creativity with which every engineer innovates. Engineers make the dream possible. Numerous assumptions, ideas and alpha, beta, and thetas later, engineers never give up. Among the multitude of engineers that India produces, on National Engineer’s Day, we thank each one of you for changing the world for the better!
Proud to have built a solid foundation in education, Evergreen Publications wishes all engineering aspirants, educators, researchers, thinkers and doers a Happy Engineer’s day!
