Imparting the engineering education to generation next needs to undergo a radical change to face the challenges with greater efficiency of effectiveness of thinking head and listening heart having compatibility thoroughly in sync with the working hands to provide sustainable practical solutions. This can be translated into reality in the present context by providing the relevant, scientific, inputs to aspiring engineering minds to shape their professional career in engineered way using technical skills with core competency attributes for sustainable development, i.e., educating the youths based on CARE concept https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/engineers-sustainable-creaters-jagadeesh-godihal/ ): Engineers imbibed with Attitude, equipped with Skills by acquiring the requisite Knowledge [with (4-I) Insight, Involvement, Integrity and Inspire, becoming (3-D) Dedicated, Determined and Dynamic using (3-C) Capability, Consistency and Cultivation] for employability/ entrepreneurship.

My association with engineering education laterally, vertically (entry level to heading the institute), with a focus on building capabilities over three decades at institutes across India
https://www.linkedin.com/in/jagadeesh-godihal-ba513615/ has simplified the approach and the methodology of imparting the professional education on two aspects, firstly Imparting Quality Education, derivative of contact hours of teachers with the students, secondly, Creating Sustainable engineer.

If you are teacher in whatever capacity you have a very special role to play because more than anybody else, it is you who are shaping the future generations” Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam. The qualitative contact hours between students and the teachers tremendously improves learning capabilities of the students. Teachers must invest more time in teaching, counseling first. It is imperative for the teachers to engage the classes qualitatively and the highly qualified teachers of the institute should provide quality time to the students in the class, laboratory and on field visits, during the academic year, to make the students to learn, unlearn and relearn to acquire more and more knowledge of the domain and other interdisciplinary areas to face the challenges impeccably https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/standup-teachers-stand-out-remembered-dont-lost-crowd-jagdish-godihal/

Engineers of the future need to think differently, in their approach of planning, designing and executing the projects in the development of the nation. Legendary Engineer Dr Sir M Visvesvaraya rightly said “”Plan or Perish”” is very relevant today. However, an extension to that will be Plan, Design and Execute to sustain based on the principles of sustainable development. To move towards conditions of sustainability, engineers must design and deliver projects that address sustainability holistically (from concept to demolition or reuse).

Traditional Engineering Design Criteria (TEDC) incorporate Function, Cost, and Safety, wherein Sustainable Engineering Design Criteria (SEDC), emphasis about Impact on people (society) and Impact on the planet (environment) in addition to TEDC. Such a design approach to reduce the overall human health and environmental impact of a product, process or service, where impacts are considered across its life cycle is known as Design for the Environment (DfE).

My focus will be empowering budding engineers with knowledge, power of innovation, positive attitude and a proactive thinking, in domain and interdisciplinary areas concern for nature. Above all, to ignite young minds to serve and excell in all walks of life.
