Riddle, in general, is – why an engineering brain is not becoming able to create? Despite being a social animal filled with full of energy and enthusiasm, one engineer, surely is able to observe, ideate and many times criticise and generate an idea but not in a position to chase for and innovate to resolve the tough scenario. The present paper examines the constraints in terms of required set of identical needs of competencies an engineer, to become an innovator, must possess and pose challenges that must accomplish in parallel to acquiring while being educated the engineering. It has been observed that though logically sound brain of an engineer while enjoys the creativity, cannot give the advantage of merging the creativity into an engineered result. The paper discusses the concepts of “Key to idea generation” through an “Innovation Punch” and ability to be developed as an “Innovative T-man” to pursue the idea. Elementary principles and suggestive components of each in the background of the efforts made at the GTU are also deliberated. Prior concluding, the paper also converses on the possible recipe of success and limitations for an engineering graduate in the context of weakened creativity and innovation despite having a huge potential.The Five fingures

As far as academics are concerned, he has been excellent and awarded with several Gold Medals during Diploma, Degree and Post Graduate studies. He had provided his services in the field of consultancy at national as well as international level through working with multilateral organisations such as The World Bank and United Nations Development Project-India. Research areas of him include Road Safety, Urban Planning, Infrastructure Planning, Statistical Analysis Techniques, GIS and Climate Change effects in urban areas.He is actively associated with several professional organisations and serving various prestigious posts for better interaction among educational, engineering and planning fraternity. He has more than 6 years’ experience in technical consultancy and about 6 years of engineering teaching. He has guided about 23 PG Dissertations and 10+ UG projects as well as a few AMIE projects. Towards continuous upgradations of skills and technological advancements, he has attempted 50+ events consisting of workshops, training programs, seminars, conventions, and symposiums. He frequently organises events for students and faculty members that ignite active academic upgradations and industrial interaction. He has published more than 56 technical research papers in conferences and journals. Several of his research articles are awarded with Best Paper honor during conferences. Most of all his works are available online for reference along with projects and dissertation reports. He is fascinated to conduct academic and exposure trips for students through putting his network of acquaintances to best of use.Prof. Bhasker is a recipient of “Best Section Management Committee Member of ISTE Gujarat Section 2015”. Also, he was honoured by “Pedagogical Innovation Award 2015” by the GTU for his efforts and contributions in engineering education. At the GTU he was a Master Trainer for Faculty Development Programs conducted at the University wherein he trained more than 350+ teachers of diverse engineering discipline. 1500+ students have attended his sessions on Design Thinking approach that ignites the engineering insights and motivates the engineering brain to increase capabilities, drastically. Recently he has been active with Startup Weekend Surat (powered by Google Inc.) as a trainer. He has developed his own learning portal, for learners - completely free of cost to best serve the purpose of spreading knowledge.
