EditorialTowards Prosperous India: Challenges for Engineers was the theme for the recently concluded 26th Indian Engineering Congress organized by Institution of Engineers India. The congress addressed many issues which are challenging the progress of our country. Shri. S.L.Garg ,the newly elected IEI president, in his presidential address said The economic growth and fast urbanization has thrown a big challenge to the nation in general and engineering fraternity in particular for the development of matching infrastructure for housing, transport, roads, water supply, sanitation, environment, health care, consumer products etc. Indian engineers have so far been facing this challenge and the development of infrastructure projects in the country is quite satisfactory but to cope with the enhanced requirement of infrastructure shall be a greater challenge for the engineers. The strong and consistent economic growth has raised hundreds of millions of expectations and inspirations. Fulfilling these expectations and inspirations is the real challenge for engineers and this will determine the performance of our engineering fraternity. In civil engineering, good management of construction projects is becoming very essential in order to meet quality requirements, time constraints, and deliver within budget. Civil Engineering procurement is also rapidly changing through many initiatives to improve the management of projects. The industry will require civil engineering managers able to manage this change. Health and safety is another major area which also needs to be well managed. The communication and man-management skills are important to address some of the issues. Strategic planning together with applications of the management process is very important. The Civil Engineering Management needs understanding of a wide range of topics in greater depth and breadth. Some of the management issues are sustainable construction, resource planning, finance planning and control, innovation management through enterprise and risk, and applications of IT in efficient and economic operations, health and safety, quality processes, law and marketing. To achieve Business excellence the following factors play a major role. Employee productivity and work life balance, building organization capability, Creative thinking skills in executive leadership and building Gen Y & Gen Alpha leaders. I will draw your attention to our own internationally renowned Engineer, PADMASHRI Dr.H.C. Visvesvaraya, Chairman of the Technical Committee responsible for the National Building Code (NBC-2005) of the Bureau of Indian Standards. He concluded his Prof. C.S.Jha memorial lecture by saying If our country has to progress, and if our society has to provide better and happier living for our people, we should aim at excellence in whatever we do. We, who have chosen to pursue our profession as engineers, should therefore strive for achieving excellence in engineering. Dear Civil Engineers, I wish the New Year will bring in competency, excellence, health and safety in your organization and life. Wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
