The Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) founded in 1987 comprises India's most distinguished engineers, engineer-scientists and technologists covering the entire spectrum of engineering disciplines, and functions as an apex body to promote and advance the practice of engineering and technology and the related sciences and disciplines in India and their application to problems of national importance. The major task of the Academy is to chalk out the future course of Indian engineering using interdisciplinary advantages and the vast and diverse experience that our Fellows have in India and abroad. The country expects from Fellows of the Academy to demonstrate that India can be innovative, that India can show imagination, and we can orient science & technology to the three basic directions – of indigenous development of imported technologies, of indigenous generation of new technologies and of moving to the frontiers to put Indian science & technology at the front rank in the world. The Academy’s duty will be to become an instrument for acquiring technological and scientific self-reliance and bridge the gap between what is achievable and what India must achieve.
