Theme write-up of 47th Engineers Day
September 15, 2014
Theme : “Making Indian Engineering World-class”

“World-class” engineers denotes the engineers of tomorrow with a broad range of competencies
and skills to synthesize new ideas; and develop new processes and technologies to address
contemporary challenges to suit global needs anywhere in the world. The word “World-class” is
a relative term and is very difficult to define as there is no datum or fixed standard to classify
any engineering work as “World-class”. The phrase has different connotations in countries from
different categories, viz. Developed, Developing and Under-developed, based on their
economic and social standards.However, the engineers, who are the harbinger of development
of any country, always strive for enrichment of their knowledge and skill to upgrade the quality
of life and their performance. The pursuit for betterment is a continuous process. There is no
end to development and engineering progress. The process of upgradation from one standard
to the other, from ‘under-developed’ to ‘developing’, or from ‘developing’ to ‘developed’, is a
continuous process, which is led by the engineers after taking into account the prevailing sociopolitico-
economic conditions of the particular country.
Engineers are key figures in the material progress of the world. A world-class engineer,
regardless of the job he is engaged in, is always considered an asset to the nation and the
society; as it is he who makes a reality of the potential value of science by translating scientific
knowledge into tools, resources, energy, and labour to bring science into the service of the
country.
It is a challenge to conclude about the class to which the engineers of India belong. In the
diversified, heterogeneous nature of development in our country, the engineers have to work
from construction of rural roads to manufacturing of spaceships to Mars. Both are equally
important for accelerating the development of the country. There is no scope to undermine the
contemporaryskill and knowledge of the engineers of our country. It is a matter of pride that
Indian engineers, whether working in the country or outside, are a force to reckon with globally.
The knowledge, skill, and wisdom of Indian engineers is no less than that of their counterparts
from other so-called “advanced” countries. Due to the socio-politico-economic structure of our
country, engineering is still very much labour-intensive. Unlike in other parts of the developed
world, Indian engineers are quite capable of blending the modern mechanized systems with
prevailing traditional human-oriented activities.
However, it does not mean that the pursuit for self-enrichment by Indian engineers will not be
perceived. India requires large numbers of qualified and competent engineers to address the
numerous challenges faced in the developmental journey. To produce large numbers of
competent engineering and technical personnel to take on the global challenges, India will need
to complete the following activities to transform the curriculum for training and skill upgradation:
i) Generate awareness about the global nature of the profession,in-tune with growing
challenges and opportunities
ii) Develop a comprehensive understanding in the respective engineering discipline to
tackle complex, real-world problems
iii) Accept challenges and solve them with wisdom and shared knowledge
iv) Acquire knowledge and expertise through lifelong education and continuous learning
v) Build familiarity in other engineering and scientific disciplines so that interdisciplinary
solution approaches can be evolved
vi) Pursue opportunities to apply skills in both traditional and non-traditional fields to
address societal challenges
vii) Communicate and interact with other highly recognized international leaders in
engineering, and
viii) Establish themselves as personalities with ethical and noble values
Achieving excellence is a journey that needs considerable effort. It requires a transition from a
reactive, compliance-based approach to a proactive, contributory and value-add mindset to
create an environment of sustained operational progress. Over the long-term, world-class
engineers will create a set of approaches and best-practices that will improve tomorrow’s world,
create long-term value, and institutionalize business sustainability.
