This engineer’s day, you can take a trip to some of these design marvels. Some of the spectacular projects are Golden Globe in Auroville, Bandra-Worli Sea link, I-flex Solutions in Bangalore.

2. Organize a debate or quiz related to latest developments in engineering field
Boost your knowledge about the developments in technology and engineering field. Arrange a quiz on topics related to the same, or you can even conduct a debate on pros and cons of developing technology, or similar topics. 

3. Educate others
This Engineer’s Day, unite for a social cause. Visit a government or tribal schools and teach the kids there, simple yet interesting engineering concepts. You can also carry some interesting projects and demonstrate the working of the project to the kids.

4. Organize paper presentation or conferences in college
Communication and writing skills are important for an engineer, along with technical knowledge. Paper presentation competition enables students to carry out extensive research, analyze documents and write their own papers. Also presenting the paper involves seminar and communication with an audience. This boosts their communication skills as well as confidence. 

5. Conduct an Alumni Meet
An Alumni meet will facilitate exchange if ideas and advices between the current and the previous batch. It will bring back college memories for the pass-out students, and will be a mentoring session for the current students at the same time. and of course, a fun-filled afternoon with time well spent. 

AVCOE wishes all the students and all the Engineers a very Happy Engineer’s Day. We wish you success and glory all the way.

7 Daily Habits that will make you a better Engineer

Engineers are responsible for many of the great inventions and technology the world depends on. Everything from space shuttles to air conditioning systems to hearing aids requires the work of an engineer. We listed the top habits required to be a successful engineer.

Here are some of habits that happy, successful engineers practice:

Image result for engineer habits

1.  Cherish learning in success or failure.
Failures are not a surprise for engineers. What makes you stand out from others is the way you deal with it. Successful engineers see failure as an opportunity to try something new, to perform better.

2.  Don’t compare yourself to others.
Be your best at what you do and keep consistently being the best. The only one you should compare yourself is to who you are today and how can you better yourself for the future.

3.  Embrace different perspectives to solve a problem.
All engineers know this that there are hundreds of solutions and hundreds of approaches to a certain problem. When you can’t seem to reach a solution with one point of view, try perceiving the problem in another way. If you are working in a team take inputs from everyone, put different perspectives to work and solve the problem.

4.  Exercise- A must.
Along with your brain, your body needs its dosage of maintenance too. Remember without a healthy body one cannot be efficient in his/her work. Take some time out and make it a point to exercise on a daily basis.

5.  Avoid procrastination.
Avoiding procrastination is today’s world is a rather challenging thing to do. With social media becoming an ‘important’ part and parcel of our lives, it is convenient enough to put off our work to next day, and the next and it goes on. Agreed we need our share social lives but don’t waste most of your time browsing such apps. Prioritize your work which will give you time for work, study as well as fun.

6.  Read books.
Reading books allows you to learn new information you can relate or connect with your current skills and solve problems more efficiently than someone who is not reading books at all. Be it fiction or non-fiction, the former broadens your imagination and the latter gives you access to facts and mantras regarding your field.

7.  Be confident that you will make it. 
Four years of engineering is certainly not easy. Often you go through phases of self-doubt and fear and series of what-ifs about uncertainty of your future. Take a breath. Relax. Keep giving your 100% and things will work out for you just as fine. Always have confidence in yourself and your abilities to make it.

Becoming successful in any engineering field, or in life as an engineer takes a lot of hard work and determination. Be confident, set your goals and strongly work towards them, and the most important thing – never stop learning!

Here's why Polytechnic students make better Engineers

THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF ENGINEERING

Engineering is defined as a combination of science and art of applying skills of physics, mathematics, and technology for the betterment of mankind. Regarded as a noble profession, engineers are respected and valued all around the globe as they connect the society with science. Engineering is not only about learning the different principles, laws, and formulae but the ability to apply the factual knowledge for simpler day to day lives of humans.

An engineer must be well endowed with a trained technical mind and knowledge to gain value and demand. Technical skills and knowledge is of utmost importance and in today’s age not underestimated in the least. If you are an engineer with above par knowledge and a set of technical skills, there is no doubt you will be held in high regard.

THE TWO PATHS TO GRADUATION IN ENGINEERING

According to the present scenario, the stream of engineering is a hot favourite. There are two different ways to graduate in engineering. One is to pursue engineering after the higher secondary exams, i.e. 12th board exams.

Another way is to opt for a diploma in the preferred branch of engineering. Diploma courses are offered by polytechnic colleges in India. In this diploma course, students get three years of education in the branch of engineering they prefer. This is then followed by three years graduation course of engineering.


POLYTECHNIC STUDENTS: BETTER ENGINEERS

In the higher secondary education, students receive two years of science education, viz. physics, chemistry, and mathematics after which they are admitted into the engineering colleges where they receive four years of engineering education. In the case of polytechnics, during the course of all 6 years of diploma and engineering, students obtain theoretical knowledge as well as core technical knowledge and hands-on experience.

The subjects polytechnic students are taught are almost similar to the subjects included in the engineering curriculum but simpler. This helps in building a strong foundation of the learning process. Also, the education received by the students during their higher secondary is not very application oriented whereas, polytechnic students follow a curriculum which is application based.

It is safe to say that polytechnic students make better engineers as they obtain more practical knowledge and experience. When they set foot in the industry, complete with a technically sound mind and brain, they are priority candidates for core technical industries. Why? Because with a trained technical mind comes an ability to work more efficiently to solve problems and provide solutions at a faster speed and thus deliver better results.

As the saying goes “Opportunity never knocks on the door twice!”, don’t resist any opportunity coming your way even if you think it is out of your scope. Grab every chance you get to improve your career.

5. Improve your communication skills

Many engineers prefer to stick to the technical design track, while others branch off into management roles. Whichever field you choose, you need to be comfortable talking to your colleagues, seniors or even the customers. Developing ‘soft skills’ is vital for engineers irrespective of what field they are in.

Mechanical engineering is a field changing so quickly, that you may study things in your final year that was thought almost unfeasible in the first year. If that excites you, give Mech Engineering a serious thought.
