It’s high time that Engineering is emerging due to the advancements like IoT, Automation and Artificial Intelligence. The use of Technical tools and Software has made the task easy for Civil, Chemical and Mechanical Engineers. Industry 4.0 spurred the need for technically competent Engineers of the core branches to operate the factories remotely. Evolution of Smart Cities and increasing population has paved the way for Civil Engineers to come out with effective use of resource materials to manage the infrastructure. With AI being there around the corner for more than 50 years, there is only a buzz very recently. This is primarily because of the cost cutting measures that the companies wanted to incorporate in their day-to-day activities. The Robots and the software could very well manage the repeated tasks performed by different people in the near future. With the various digital initiatives of the Government of India like Smart City, Digital India, etc. India is leading the digital revolution at the global level. However, the quality of engineers needed to implement the same is of a great concern. The focus of engineering education should be more towards practical learning that enhances the skillset of the learners. This could be achieved only with a proper infrastructure and well-qualified faculties who can lead Innovation and Research. At IIST, we are delighted to offer the state of the art platform for engaging the students in doing real-time projects that can solve the societal issues. The custom designed training courses to be offered across the years would enhance the employability of the students and make them confident enough to accept the challenges of the 21st century.
