India has the potential to become the third largest economy by 2030 because of the rapid rise of its economy coupled with the demographic advantage of a young productive workforce.
India has globally been recognized as a nation where the public and corporate sectors are working in tandem to generate innovative engineering solutions for societal challenges. Over the years, India has built a significant and expanding technological base; a robust and self-reliant public sector; a vibrant private sector; humungous entrepreneurial base across Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises; substantial number of academic institutions delivering quality engineering education; and a wide array of research organizations across engineering and sciences’ disciplines. These characteristics create the unique competitive advantage for organizations and individuals to collaborate, network and develop innovative solutions that generate social benefit while creating a wide range of quality and affordable solutions, services and products for mass consumption.
Interest in civil engineering as a rewarding professional career, is fast growing with the rapid advancements that are taking place in construction materials, design and construction technology, water resources, geotechnics and transportation engineering and also due to the persistent demand for good engineering manager by the industry. Almost every large company or institution in the country engaged in civil engineering construction, design or research and testing is on the look out for engaging young and bright civil engineering graduates for taking up challenging tasks in their respective offices/ project sites. Time has come now to expose engineers working in Government departments & corporations as well as in private companies, practicing consultants & builders to the recent trends and advancements with particular reference to new materials of construction, improved design and construction technologies and maintenance and retrofitting of structures. Automation in construction industry and nanotechnology have got their own importance to which civil engineers need to get exposed. Construction of earthquake resistant structures in the vast earthquake prone belt of our country is also a need of the hour.
