Engineers’ Day: Narayana Schools Inspire Youth
The primary goal of the programme was to provide a venue where students in grades 8 through 12 could benefit from hearing the perspectives of parents who have, themselves, endured the rigours and followed the path of engineering.
New Delhi : The birthday of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, a prominent Indian engineer and politician, is commemorated annually on September 15 as Engineers’ Day. This year, Narayana Schools went above and above by inviting students’ first teachers—their parents—to lead a career counselling session in honour of the occasion.
A diverse group of engineers, both established and aspiring, gathered for this occasion. Parents who are engineers in fields like civil engineering, mechanical engineering, software engineering, and others were asked to attend. The primary goal of the programme was to provide a venue where students in grades 8 through 12 could benefit from hearing the perspectives of parents who have, themselves, endured the rigours and followed the path of engineering.
Each parent shared their own unique experiences in the field of engineering. They spoke about the hardships they overcame, the achievements they made, and the profound happiness they now feel because of their decisions. They used examples from their own experiences to make the material more relevant to the students and maybe encourage them to pursue the field.
The Q&A portion of the presentation was quite engaging. Students made the most of their chance to quiz engineering experts and pick their brains for tips. Options for the future, educational goals, and the ever-changing engineering scene were all discussed in depth. Students were able to have their questions answered, broaden their horizons, and benefit from the first-hand experience of individuals who have made it as engineers during this session.
Dr. Sindhura Narayana, Director of Narayana Educational Institutions, discussed the value of these kind of discussions and the relevance of engineering appreciation days. She stressed that Engineers’ Day isn’t only about remembering previous engineering greats; it’s also about encouraging and supporting the next generation of innovators.
Engineers such as Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, Verghese Kurien, E. Sreedharan, Satish Dhawan, Vinod Dham, Nandan Mohanrao Nilekani, and many more were honoured on this day for their contributions to India and the globe. The Narayana Schools’ Engineers’ Day celebration was more than simply a party; it sent a strong message to the children that engineering is more than a job; it’s a calling that can change the world.
