COVID pandemic has hit the economy of all the countries across the world including India. But the way India has bounced back shows the resilience and core strength of the country to overcome any challenges to be encountered in emergency situations.

The engineers have a multifaceted role to play in this growth of the country as they are supposed to provide the basic infrastructure which is the backbone for any development and to ensure an inclusive and sustainable development for a clean, green, self-reliant and prosperous India for the future generation.

The IEC theme for this year is “Engineers for Viable Technology and $ 5 Trillion Economy” is very apt in the present day scenario and the deliberations at this mega event, to be shared by visionaries and doyens in the field of engineering, will enlighten and generate awareness about the responsibility of the engineers in promoting engineering innovations and accelerating growth of the nation in all sectors.
