Sir Visvesvaraya was born in 1860 in the Kolar district of Karnataka. He studied engineering at the University of Madras and then went on to work in the public sector. He held several important positions, including the Diwan of Mysore and the Governor of Mysore.
Sir Visvesvaraya was a prolific engineer and inventor. He is credited with designing and constructing many important projects, including the Krishnaraja Sagar Dam, the Mysore Water Supply Scheme, and the Bangalore Railway Station. He also played a key role in the development of the Indian Railways.
Engineers are the problem-solvers of the world. They are the ones who come up with new ideas and create new technologies to make our lives better. They have made a significant impact on our society, building the infrastructure that we rely on, such as roads, bridges, and buildings. They have also developed new technologies that have improved our health, our safety, and our way of life.
To commemorate the contributions of engineers to society and to inspire young people to consider a career in engineering. All engineering institutes across India organise functions and honour their meritorious students and teachers. They asked to share their views in the form of a speech. Speeches can be a powerful way to communicate the importance of engineering and to inspire young people to pursue a career in this field. They can also be used to celebrate the achievements of engineers and to thank them for their contributions to society.
Here are some speech ideas for students on Engineers’ Day 2023:
Good morning everyone. I am (your name), a student at (your school). I am here today to talk to you about Engineers’ Day. Engineers’ Day is celebrated on September 15 in India to commemorate the birth anniversary of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, a renowned Indian engineer and statesman. He was known as the “Father of Modern India” for his contributions to the development of the country’s infrastructure. Engineers’ Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of engineers and their contributions to society. It is also a day to encourage young people to consider a career in engineering.

During your speech, you may give some examples citing amazing things that engineers have created including:
- The Golden Gate Bridge
- The Burj Khalifa
- The International Space Station
- The Covid-19 vaccine
- The Internet
(Then mention what are the difficulties engineers face these days, and provide solutions also) Engineers are facing many challenges today, such as climate change and the need for sustainable energy. But they are also working on innovative solutions to these challenges. For example, engineers are developing new ways to generate and use renewable energy, such as solar and wind power. They are also working on ways to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
I encourage you to consider a career in engineering. Engineers are in high demand, and they have the opportunity to make a real impact on the world.
Thank you for listening. I hope you have a wonderful Engineers’ Day.
You can share your own personal experience with engineering, such as if you have ever built something or taken an engineering class. Talk about the skills and qualities that make a good engineer, such as problem-solving, creativity, and teamwork. Highlight the many different types of engineering careers that are available, such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer engineering. Explain how engineering is a rewarding career that can make a difference in the world.
