    This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 7th Nirma University International Conference on Engineering ‘NUiCONE 2019’. This conference followed the successful organization of four national conferences and six international conferences in previous years. The main theme of the conference was “Technologies for Sustainable Development”, which is in line with the “SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL” established by the United Nations. The conference was organized with many inter-disciplinary technical themes encompassing a broad range of disciplines and enabling researchers, academicians and practitioners to choose between ideas and themes. Besides, NUiCONE-2019 has also presented an exciting new set of events to engage practicing engineers, technologists and technopreneurs from industry through special knowledge sharing sessions involving applied technical papers based on case-study applications, white-papers, panel discussions, innovations and technology products. 

    This proceedings will definitely provide a platform to proliferate new findings among researchers.
