I feel privileged to join this premier Institute for training of Indian Railways' Civil Engineers. This training Institute has seen lot of growth in the recent past. Civil Engineers in Indian Railways are maintaining major assets like track and bridges running along the length and breadth of the whole country, all service buildings and residential accommodation which requires very high level of dedication and involvement and updated knowledge. Recently IRICEN has started e-learning module which provides distant training facility to all interested Civil Engineers of Indian Railways.
The Institute is doing the job of making IRSE Probationers into grown up Civil Engineers by imparting initial training as well as training during their service career. It is a sort of converting small sapling into a grown up tree .
It will be my endeavour to contribute my bit to take this premier institution to new levels of glory by adding new subjects of relevance.
