Emerging Trends in Civil Engineering for Sustainable Development (ICETCE-2024)


The pressure on natural resources is increasing with rapid urbanization, population growth and increasing demands for better quality of life. The civil engineering professionals have responded to the challenge by satisfying the societal demand through building modern infrastructure in the previous century. However, the developmental activities have induced additional pressure on the global eco-system, natural resource and the climate. Currently, civil engineers are facing the challenges of 21st century in the form of meeting global housing sector demand, building sustainable infrastructures for communication / transportation and providing vital services like water and power supplies to the urban and rural settlements in a environmental friendly manner. The civil engineering professionals are expected to contribute in sustainable development by providing optimal building solutions, addressing the issue of pollution, ensuring access to clean water and assisting in reducing food shortages through modern irrigation methods, helping in the generation of hydropower, confronting climate change induced natural disasters like floods etc. The quest for seeking optimal solutions in the civil engineering sector requires the cutting edge research addressing the contemporary challenges. This conference aims to provide the platform for the academicians, researchers and the persons working in field and design offices to showcase their recent studies / findings / researches addressing the emerging trends in civil engineering for sustainable development
