The Annual Convention, which the Institution had been holding, was enlarged into Indian Engineering Congress to provide a wider spectrum. The Institution hosts the Indian Engineering Congress annually which is organised concurrently with its Annual General Meeting since 1987. The Engineering Congress is intended to broaden the scope of interaction and transfusion of knowledge by letting in from within the country and abroad engineer-brothers who are professional experts in their respective fields to participate and effectively diffuse their experiences and infuse their thinking. The Indian Engineering Congress has thrown open the threshold of knowledge to all, both members and non-members, and has provided them with a Forum.
The first Indian Engineering Congress was held in Calcutta in 1987 and was inaugurated by Bharat Ratna Late Rajiv Gandhi in 1987 in Kolkata. Thereafter the event got inaugurated by HE Presidents of India, Late S D Sharma on two occasions. Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and HE President of India Bharat Ratna Dr A P J Abdul Kalam have inaugurated and addressed the International Technical Congresses on several occasions on the invitation of the Institution.
