About the Conference

Civil engineering plays a crucial role in creating the infrastructure needed for development and on which modern life depends – be it housing, clean water, waste water treatment, transport systems, clean and sustainable energy etc. Civil engineers apply knowledge and experience to create projects that meet human needs and address environmental problems. With depleting natural resources and increasing demand on energy and infrastructure, the paradigm within which a civil engineer works has significant impact on progress towards sustainable development. There is an urgent need to recognise the role of engineers in sustainable development, and their responsibility to provide effective and innovative solutions in addressing the challenges of sustainability. The environmental, economic, social and technological development must be seen as interdependent and complementary concepts, where economic competitiveness and ecological sustainability are complementary aspects of the common goal of improving the quality of life.

The conference aims at congregation of policy makers, stakeholders, engineers to brain-storm on various issues to strengthen the internationally mandated approach for sustainable development and discuss the roles of civil engineers in various interdisciplinary core areas of sustainable development. It is important to promote strong leadership within civil engineering and embed the principles of sustainable development into decision making. The conference will provide a platform to civil engineering leaders to champion the effort to build capacity for sustainable development among civil engineers and influence a policy framework that demands more socially and environmentally responsible decision process for implementation of development projects.

About Assam Engineering College

Assam Engineering College ( AEC) , the first engineering college in the north-east India, was established in the year 1955. It is situated at Jalukbari in the south-west part of Guwahati, which is a landmark in the colourful and chequered history of the state of Assam, India. The campus is spread across 400 acres of land. The college started with the Civil Engineering department, and within a few years other engineering departments were started. Presently, it awards Bachelor in Engineering degrees in eight different engineering disciplines,Master in Engineering degrees in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and Master in Computer Application degree. The college offers PhD programs under all departments. All the courses of AEC are affiliated to Gauhati University. AEC has 140+ Faculties, 2000+ Students and Adding 500+ Alumni Every Year. AEC is a member of the National Knowledge Network (NKN) and is also the state resource institute for capacity building in seismic disaster risk mitigation. AEC has one of the best computing facility in this region and has established super-computing centre in collaboration with C-DAC, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, India.
