 Mr. Ari Speaks @ Facecon on Engineers: The Backbone of a Nation

Mr.O.Arivazhagan "Ari" was invited to give the Keynote Address on 'FACECON 2015' organized by 'Federation of All Civil Engineers Association of TamilNadu & Puducherry' Engineers: The Backbone of a Nation” at Salem on 15th March, 2015.

He said that he was delighted with the topic as the statement was true and very much applicable. His Project experience included working as a General Manager, Senior Project Manager in countries like Saudi Arabia, 10 years in India as Project Manager, Muscat, Oman, USA, France, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore. He said Civil Engineers were respected all over the World which he was able to experience it affront. He also assured that the Civil Engineers Bill would be passed this year/next year.

He said that while Civil Engineering discipline was started by the College Of Engineering 200 years back , Civil Engineers have been sidelined in the recent years to an extent that Architect’s Bill has been passed but the Government is hesitant to pass the Civil Engineers Bill. He also pointed out that Structures constructed by Civil Engineers can be viewed from space and what was the significance of the architecture behind the buildings being constructed?.He said an interesting fact is that a country’s development was measured by the Roadways and the architecture behind the roads will not be given any importance.

Civil Engineers have the capability to lead the nation and to become a PM/CM and he cited that based on the contribution of Civil Engineers, it was high time for Government to recognize - for which he was given a thunderous applause. In the recent Budget Government has allocated Rs.70,000/- crore for Infrastructure and Civil Engineers would be in demand as we would need more than 5 lakhs Engineers to fulfill the rising need. He concluded by saying that Civil Engineers formed the core of the nation and that this discipline was an ever green field.
