Every year the government of Iran holds a special ceremony, that attracts thousands of engineers and engineering students. They are all invited to a special gala concert, where a number of top officials congratulate the engineers on this day. During the ceremony the most outstanding engineers are awarded for their brilliant service in Iran.

Celebration of Engineer's Day has a special purpose: the government of Iran wants to form a special nongovernmental organization, an engineering society, that would include all or almost all Iranian engineers. This society is to be one of the most powerful and influential in the country. These attempts also raise the importance and prestige of the engineering profession in the eyes of the Iranian youth.
