Every year India celebrates National Engineer’s day on September 15 to recognise and honour the achievements of the great engineer Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. Along with India, Visvesvaraya’s great works are also celebrated in Sri Lanka and Tanzania on September 15 as Engineer’s day.

September 15 is celebrated every year in the country since the year 1967 as “Engineers’ Day” to commemorate the birthday of the
legendary engineer Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya. Sir Visvesvaraya,an eminent Indian engineer and statesman was born in a remote villageof Karnataka, the State that is incidentally now the Hi-tech State of the country. Due to his outstanding contribution to the society, Government of India conferred “Bharat Ratna” on this legend in the year 1955. He was also called the precursor of economic planning in India. His learned discourse on Economic Planning in India, Planned Economy for India and
Reconstructing India, was the first available document on the planning effort of the country and it is still held as the parent source matter for economic planners

 A theme of national importance is chosen every year
by the Council of the Institution and deliberated at its various State/Local
Centres to educate the engineering fraternity in general and the society in
particular. This year the 55th Engineers’ Day will be celebrated all over the
country on the theme “Smart Engineering for a Better World”.KSEBEA adopt the theme selected by the institution of Engineers(I)

The 55th Engineers Day celebration on the theme ‘Smart Engineering for a
Better World’ will be celebrated by engineers to take a stock of various capability and
capacity building initiatives undertaken in crucial sectors like road and rail
connectivity, drinking water, agriculture, healthcare and nutrition, affordable
housing and better governance through induction of smart technologies to
achieve Sustainable Development Goals in a phased manner. The societal
engineering aspect will also be delved into as it is a deciding parameter in
ascertaining the extent of for developing a smart infrastructure of inclusive
nature as well as creation of newer job openings. The theme ‘Smart
Engineering for a Better Future’ also encompasses issue of environmental
sustainability. There is no well established roadmap towards building a
smart infrastructure and trying to replicate a generic global template might
not work. Such developments are extremely contextual and should reflect
challenges, priorities and aspirations at the regional level. The solutions
would require synergy between industry, academia and government and
should foster an ecosystem where different players can participate and
share best practices and develop action plans for switching to a smart
infrastructure for a sustainable and prosperous future.
The engineers need to understand that there is tremendous pressure on
the existing service infrastructures which are inadequate and not
designed to sustain challenges like air pollution, waste management,
traffic congestions, effective healthcare and housing for all etc.
This will require finding sustainable and inclusive solutions to provide
affordable housing, healthcare, nutrition, mass rapid transportation
and drinking water especially to the urban populace which may later be
replicated in other areas in a phase wise manner.
An interesting commonality in the nature of these challenges is dealing with massive levels of digitization and
generation of data. These perceived challenges are veiled opportunities to
leverage data science and analytics and thereby induct smart engineering
to deal with major global challenges, such as adverse effects of climate
change, water scarcity, mixed energy usage, reducing the digital divide
among others. The engineering profession is undergoing a paradigm
shift with the induction of digitization and emphasis on man-machine
interface with induction of logical thinking in machines. Automation and
analytics has proved to be decisive and has brought about changes in
conceptualization of all major verticals of engineering. Investing in
capacity building of smart infrastructure ensuring smart delivery of civic
services will serve the broad societal interest with ramifications leading to
establishment of effective and accountable governance system congruent
to our needs.
As engineers it is important that we adopt smart engineering to leapfrog
into new realms in this era of smart engineering for a better tomorrow.
