The Qatar University College of Engineering (QU-CENG) and the Institution of Engineers, India (IEI) – Qatar Chapter will launch the Centenary International Engineering Congress at Qatar University Research Complex auditorium to discuss several topics related to ‘Smart Engineering – State of the Art Technologies in Oil & Gas and Infrastructure Development’, on September 26.
IEI will also be celebrating Engineer’s Day on September 27 at Al Dana Club, West Bay, which is observed annually on September 15 worldwide.
The opening session will feature speeches from QU president Dr Hassan al-Derham, Indian ambassador P Kumaran, IEI president Dr T M Gunaraja and Qatar Foundation Research, Development and Innovation chief adviser Dr Nabeel al-Salem.
CENG dean Dr Khalid Kamal Naji said, “In co-ordination with our partners, CENG will continue to deliver on its mission and vision to fulfil the needs of the industrial sector and community by providing high quality research that responds to today’s engineering challenges in a way that makes a difference in the engineering various areas.”
“The conference will discuss different advanced and state-of-the art technologies and technological innovations of integrated engineering processes for development of petrochemical and civil infrastructure,” he continued.
“Smart engineering intelligently connects buildings, industries, production processes, energy systems, to adapt and evolve the way people live and work – happily, comfortably, sustainably and in harmony. It supports the way the industry and organisations want to be: efficient, responsible and smarter. Technology and the ingenuity of people come together to be at one with our environments and to care for our world. It has to be done from the macro to the micro level, from physical products, components and systems to connected, cloud-based digital offerings and services, from intelligent grid control and electrification to smart storage solutions, from building automation and control systems to pipelines, switches, valves and sensors,”  added Gunaraja.
