September 15 is celebrated as 'Engineers Day' in India marking the birth day of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya. Sir Visvesvaraya was internationally known for his genius in harnessing water resources. Not many people would know that world over, there are different days celebrated as engineers day. Here are few ones to note (you may add):
  • Nepal: NOSK celebrates it on 18 July every year
  • Pakistan: 10 January, foundation of Pakistan Engineering Council
  • Singapore: 22-24 July, organised by Institution of Engineers (IES)
  • USA: The week of 22nd February, in memory of George Washington's Birthday
The purpose of this discussion, however is to gather various ideas from our fellow engineers on how to celebrate engineers day. If you have any innovative ideas, please share them. Here's a few to start with:-

1. Speech Competition or Debate competition with topics associated with responsibilities of engineers.
2. Essay competition for college students
3. General get together and felicitation of achievers and so on.

I look forward to innovative ideas from all of you.
@rahul69 • 24 Aug, 2015 Here are some from top of my head :
  • Gaming contests (Engineers love this)
  • Quizzes
  • Working in teams to create a crazy innovative design for a project(one project each team).
  • Watching movies and sleeping (that's what we engineers do on holidays 😛 , I kid of course)
  • Some kind of challenge hunt ( Challenge to be given to different teams, who can finish first).
😀 😀 Or a friendly get together on evening snacks 😉
@DivyaSep • 25 Aug, 2015 An Exhibition for Young Students with various contests and presentations which will help them to know-
What is Engineering?
What are the different fields?
How to choose their field of interest?
What they should do once they join engineering? etc

So that our Future Engineers can come to this field for their own interest, can choose what they really want to do and never choose it because of parents /others force.

Roger that! I'm guessing we'd do something online on CrazyEngineers day. Just for the records sake, we celebrate 'CrazyEngineers Day' on 26 November, the day on which CrazyEngineers was born in 2005. 😀
@John Brandon • 11 Nov, 2015 Hello All

This is my first post, I am new to this site. I work for an electric utility, and every year we have Engineering Day. I am on the planning committee for 2016, and we are exploring E- Day themes, discussion and presentation topics, and games. Currently, I'm a distribution engineer, and I did not want the topics that I suggest to present to relate purely to grid engineering. I gladly welcome any suggestions on the above items I have mentioned, it would be greatly appreciated!!
@Ankita Katdare • 14 Sep, 2017 So, we are just a day away from Engineers Day celebration and we're thrilled to make some of our largest announcements. We are working round the clock to ensure a smooth launch and want all our engineering community to join us in the celebrations.

Is any one of you celebrating engineers day at your current institution - office or college? Do share your celebration ideas and what things you have planned. We really look forward to hearing your fun Engineers Day ideas. Do share them with us below.

I think a surprise quiz competition would be an epic idea to celebrate engineers day. You could form teams in your class or office, and then ask various questions about Engineers Day celebrations, about major engineering projects in India and abroad, about life and times of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan etc.

Another simple way to celebrate would be to ask participants to talk a bit about the funniest incidences in their lives as a professional engineer or an engineering student.

Or an innovative - writing short messages competition to celebrate engineers day. One more thing to do is to organise a tree-plantation drive in your college or office campus.

MV would have just gone out and did some engineering.

Taking off on what @Kaustubh said, I feel that members should come out with some engineering work that didn’t come out in the way expected and tell what the analysis was and how the issue was resolved.

@Ramani sir, that'd be seriously awesome. Perhaps, people could talk about the innovative side projects they're working (if they are, at all).

Technical poster compition 

@Kaustubh Katdare • 10 Sep, 2018

@Zeba - could you tell us a bit more about the technical poster competition? We had one when I was in college. 

All the participating students were asked to pick up a topic related to any engineering branch of their choice (electrical engineers could choose to make a post on Civil engineering, if they preferred). Then after the topic was confirmed by the professor, we were given a total of 3 hours to complete the poster.

We worked in teams of 6-8 students each to complete the poster in given time. It was quite fun and we explored lot of interesting ideas.

Our poster was about future of electrical engineering in the era of Internet. We had imagined electrical engineers collaborating from different parts of the world to solve problems in real-time.
