Innovation, new technologies to dominate 19th Engineers Day agenda

AT least 3,500 registered engineers are expected to gather in Dodoma late next week to mark the 19th Engineers Day that will focus on innovation and new technologies in the construction industry.

According to the Engineers Registration Board (ERB), this year’s annual event is centred at pushing for new innovation and technology transfer from foreign companies to locals.

ERB Registrar, Engineer Bernard Kavishe told a news conference that the event will be held in the capital city Dodoma on September 22 and 23.

“This year’s Engineers Day will be unique as there will be sessions for taking the engineers through new technologies in the sector,” Eng Kavishe stated in Dar es Salaam on Thursday.

He said the focus will also be on innovation since the innovation will drive sustainability of transferred skills from foreign companies.

He said it will be a big gathering of engineers to discuss and deliberate on challenges and way forward for the construction industry and participation of indigenous firms in implementation of development projects.

He said during the discussion session, the professional will be reminding themselves on their role and look into how they would expand their market.

In the course of sustaining professional commitment and ethics, about 400 newly registered engineers will take oath at the Engineers Day.

“We will update engineers on new technologies in the sector since so many current projects have come with new technologies that local engineers should know them,” the registrar stated.

On other hand, the engineering companies will have opportunity to exhibit their goods and services, calling on the engineers to register online to participate in the event.

The forum will also be held virtually to give opportunity to those who would miss to participate physically.

Eng Kavishe further reminded engineers over importance of registering with the ERB as per the law and guidelines, directing construction companies to ensure they employ the registered engineers, informing that currently there are 25,000 active registered engineers.
