Engineers: The Unsung Heroes of Our World

Happy World Engineering Day from all of us at ANE! Today, we celebrate the relentless dedication and innovative spirit of engineers around the globe. This year, we’re adding a dash of humour to our festivities.

March 4th, known as #WorldEngineeringDay, is a day to honour the significant contributions of engineers in shaping a better and more sustainable future. Engineers and STEM professionals are the driving force behind innovative solutions that reduce emissions, improve energy efficiency, and promote renewable energy. Their expertise and inventive thinking are indispensable in today’s world.

In light of the complexities and challenges we face, a little humour can go a long way. So, this year, we’re celebrating World Engineering Day with a touch of levity. We’ve curated a collection of our favourite engineering quips, infused with a touch of self-irony.

World Engineering Day is a joint initiative by UNESCO and WFEO, aimed at highlighting the extraordinary achievements of engineers across the globe. To learn more about this initiative and to find a stream of global inspiration, visit
