In India, engineering can be traced back in the pre-historic times when solar drying was used for agricultural purposes, traces of which were also found in the Indus Valley Civilization. It was the periodic phase of ‘Irrigation Engineering’ in India. Since then, the land has been the home of renowned proficient architects & designers, craftsman & builders. Later, these craftsman and artisans were hired by local factories for efficient designing and manufacturing. It was through them “Unofficial Engineering” was introduced in the country. The middle 1800 was the time when engineering got an official recognition as an engineering college “Thomason College” (which later became IIT Roorkee, which was established in 1847) was founded to provide civil engineering training. Moreover, during this period the country witnessed the rise of Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology of Shibpur, College of Engineering of Pune and College of Engineering of Guindy. The inception of these three empirical engineering colleges impacted the lives of many countrymen who were keen in designing & building of machines & technology. They started getting their desired technical education and this marks the beginning of industrial revolution in India, where the graduates attracted new learners through their upright creations. Lives of many started blossoming and the socioeconomic conditions improved exponentially welcoming the engineering education. Currently there are many public and private engineering colleges in the country imparting scrupulous technical pedagogy.
