Engineer's Day is celebrated to commemorate the great achievements of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya on his birth anniversary. It is also celebrated to encourage and appreciate the innovative contributions of all the engineers in the country. Tanzania and South Africa, too, celebrate National Engineer's Day on the same day.
The Engineers Registration Board (ERB) has registered a total of 31,729 engineers, calling for more efforts to encourage students to pursue science subjects, so the country can produce enough engineers to serve the industrial economy (2021).
The construction sector—via, for example, housing, roads, bridges, water, health, and power infrastructure—is a key enabler for social and economic development worldwide. In Tanzania, the sector growth rate is well above the general economy and has maintained positive growth in response to the country’s investments in commercial and residential buildings and infrastructure projects.
