On the occasion, Lt Governor reminded that it is Engineers & Technocrats who have enabled vast developments that have happened in this world from times immemorial. Engineering is one of the key influences that shape our society. “Humans always tend to ease their life and improve their quality of life. From where do these crucial factors for ease and quality come? These are all incredible ideas. Science is there to debate these ideas and check them theoretically and experimentally. However, engineers apply them in the real world. Engineers do design, invent, or analyze these applications according to society and the world’s needs,” the Lt Governor said.
