Celebrations throughout the world are taken to great heights and strides during the Engineers day in remembering the realized past and visualizing the future of the tenets set out by reversed visionary Bharat Ratna Sir M. Visvesvaraya.

Being part of such grand Celebration for the year 2018 gives me sense of great pride and privilege, as I write this message from my desk at the Qatar Chapter Doha.

As the country of Qatar has very well progressed in the last decade as one of the foremost and fastest developing countries in the world, especially welcoming of 2022 FIFA World Cup, blessed

The Qatar Chapter of IEI is indeed happy to publish this technical souvenir on the 51st Engineer’s Day to mark the birthday of Bharat Ratna Sir M. Visvesvaraya, the doyen of Engineering fraternity whose creative genius nearly revolutionized the concepts of planning for community welfare of both the rural poor as well as urban masses.

I whole heartily commend all the enthusiastic dynamic & dedicated Engineer Member of all the past and present Executive Committees, who have made a name in the engineering fraternity for their selfless services in uplifting the status of Engineer & Engineering profession. But the task is growing more and more complex, with ever expanding technological development and advancement of engineering field and applications.

The theme chosen for this year’s commemoration is “Digital Transformation: A New Industrial Revolution” This is a very relevant topic in the current context.I have profound optimism that discussions on the Engineers’ Day Theme will emerge in to exciting ideas, developments and opportunities for the Engineers in the coming years.

Engineers Day is the day of reverence and conscientious thinking for all Engineers. This day belongs to the Engineering community and all Engineers shall feel proud to be associated with this highly important and noble profession.

I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to our well-wishers and supporters for their guidance and support which has enabled the Qatar Chapter to function as a truly professional body in Qatar. I also take this opportunity to congratulate all fellow Engineers on the occasion of the 51st Engineers’ Day and wish them a great success.
