One man's 'magic' is another man's engineering. 'Supernatural' is a null word.
Who is this other man? This other man is the engineer. We cannot expect the continuation, existence and growth of civilization without the pivotal role of engineers. Observe closely and you will find that a man by birth is an engineer. Even a one-year old kid is more interested to break open his toy car and see how it works rather than just play with it. Human’s with to question, the appetite for knowledge, the hunger for seeking logic in every magic makes every human being as an engineer.
With the passage of time and with the more structural growth of civilization, the role of engineering has become even more relevant. The engineers have now come up as better solution providers. It has been observed and is evident that the engineers can handle, simulate and solve the problems more methodically than the others. It’s evident in the upsurge of the career as a Manager for engineers. We can witness that the IIMs and other top B-schools have a considerable number of engineering graduates in their intakes.
When clubbed with professional management studies the professionally trained engineers tend to add better value to their employer organizations, they have an understanding of the production machinery in technical terms and they are more empathetic to the people they are leading since they have exact feel of the work.
In the words of Edwin Powell Hubble, a great Astronomer, “Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”
Man by nature is inquisitive, he asks questions for everything he sees and lives in. Man wants to know the reason behind everything. This is the main reason for the growth of our race as compared to other species. We do not just live in it rather we also have a conquest for learning and knowing, “Why it happens?” We may get enthralled by magic and illusions but internally we want to know the logic and science behind. Engineering is the creator of these illusions and engineering is the answer to all questions on illusions.
For the growth of humanity and making the world a better place we need more and more people to take up the role of solution providers and come up as engineers, we need more engineers and even more who can add value to human lives by taking up the roles of educationists, managers, politicians, social leaders and what not. The society must have and mechanism to let everyone be an engineer.
On this day I thank all the engineers who have ever chosen this role, in time and history and all those who will be the future of engineering for making the world more connected, more understandable and more interesting.
Happy Engineers Day!
All the best!
