AISAT celebrated Engineer’s day on 23rd September 2014 (15th September 2014). The day is celebrated every year in India as Engineer’s Day to commemorate the birthday of the legendary engineer Sir M. Visvesvaraya (1861-1962).His works have been recognized internationally for his intellectual prowess in harnessing water resources. It’s having been misconstrued that Visvesvaraya has contributed in development only in Karnataka, but in reality he has served his entire career for the country. He has contributed in engineering for more than 30 years, 20 years as administrator and 20 years as advisor and statesman. He was known for sincerity, time management and dedication to a cause.
