The Institution of Engineers (India) has a rich history of convening Annual General Meetings, Annual Sessions, and Annual Conventions across diverse locations in our nation. These gatherings serve as a platform to evaluate our activities and objectives. Over time, the Annual Convention has metamorphosed into the renowned Indian Engineering Congress, aiming to facilitate extensive interactions and knowledge exchange among engineers, both within India and from around the world. This annual event is organized to cater to the comprehensive needs of our engineering community.

The genesis of the Indian Engineering Congress can be traced back to 1987 when it was inaugurated by the esteemed Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, in Kolkata. Subsequently, it has been graced by notable dignitaries, including Shri N Chandrababu Naidu, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, who inaugurated the 15th Indian Engineering Congress in Hyderabad in 2000. Notably, Late Shri Pranab Mukherjee, the Hon’ble President of India, inaugurated the 27th Indian Engineering Congress in New Delhi in 2012 and the 28th Indian Engineering Congress in Chennai in 2013.

The esteemed list of inaugural guests also includes Shri E S L Narasimhan, the Hon’ble Governor of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, who marked the inauguration of the 29th Indian Engineering Congress in Hyderabad in 2014. Shri Tathagata Roy, the Hon’ble Governor of Tripura, inaugurated the 30th Indian Engineering Congress in Guwahati in 2015, while Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi, the Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal, did the honors at the 31st Indian Engineering Congress in Kolkata in 2016. Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, the Hon’ble Governor of Telangana, was the distinguished guest at the inauguration of the 34th Indian Engineering Congress in Hyderabad in 2019.

In 2020, due to the pandemic, the 35th Indian Engineering Congress was conducted online. Dr Harsh Vardhan, the Hon’ble Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Science and Technology, and Earth Sciences, Government of India, graced the occasion as the Chief Guest, inaugurating the Congress session in the virtual domain.

The Indian Engineering Congress has evolved into a revered annual tradition of the Institution, fostering knowledge dissemination and the exchange of ideas among professionals and enthusiasts in the engineering field. It stands as a testament to our commitment to engineering excellence and innovation.


The aim of the Indian Engineering Congress is
to enlighten the technical fraternity about the developments in various fields of Engineering and thereby enabling them to face the future challenges and ensure development of the nation.


The Congress will provide a Forum:

  • To have discussion around the theme to promote ideas, broaden operational horizon of engineers from different disciplines, and to pursue newer domains and concepts
  • For exchange of information, updating knowledge and stimulating a sense of responsibility in their professional work
  • To foster international and national co-operation in the engineering fields
  • To inculcate and promote a growing commitment to the social objective of the profession
