A hero is an ordinary person who develops the ability to persist and survive in the face of tremendous odds; this hero is referred to as an engineer. Engineers are the pillars of our society, being at the forefront of working to improve our digital and physical infrastructure. Every year, on average, India produces 15,00,000 engineers. Thus, on this Engineer’s Day, it is the ideal moment to congratulate, thank, and respect the doctors throughout the country who have shown exceptional outcomes and are working tirelessly.
Our country celebrates National Engineer’s Day on the 15th of September each year in memory of India’s engineering icon M. Visvesvaraya. A highly disciplined engineer, he was known for his sincerity, time management, and devotion. He was a civil engineer and his work involved everything from building roadways, to dams and anti-flood systems. As a consummate engineer, he never stopped learning and would often be sent to different countries like China, Canada, the USA, Russia, Egypt, etc, where he would study various engineering practices and solve various problems using the latest technology. He was also awarded India’s highest civilian honor, the Bharat Ratna.
National Engineer’s Day is an endeavour to highlight the importance of engineers in our lives and to demonstrate our appreciation for them by honouring one of their most nuanced representations. With the world relying on technology and the internet now more than ever, all eyes are on our engineers to help our nation advance further in these domains. These people are the backbone of our country and the forerunners of our success soon. The 15th of September serves as a reminder of the effort and hard work thousands of engineers have put in for the advancement of our nation.
Here are some more Indian engineers who have made us proud:

In a nutshell, Engineers are responsible for the future of our country. Their diverse paths lead to revolutionary changes in our nation. The contributions made by these engineers are crucial for us and we feel proud.
We at Aakash, wish all engineers a very special National Engineer’s Day. We hope you continue to work and help our country reach new heights. On this day, it is important to remember, that engineering is not an educational qualification. It is a way of thinking. A way of thinking that is in every problem solver in the world. It is a way of life.
