ANNOUNCEMENTS

HIGHLIGHTS AND COURSE CONTENTS

Tremendous developments took place in Information Technology (IT) over the last decade. IT has almost become indispensable in every field of life. IT has also made its strong impact in various disciplines of civil engineering over the past few years. The proposed two week short term course `Advanced IT Applications to Civil Engineering' (AITACE) aims at deliberating on various applications of IT in different disciplines of civil engineering such as structural, water resources, environmental, transportation and geo-technical engineering. This course covers introduction to following topics and their applications to civil engineering fields.


          * Artificial Intelligence (AI)
          * Knowledge Based Expert Systems (KBES)
          * Fuzzy Logic (FL)
          * Case Based Reasoning (CBR)
          * Artificial Neural Networks (ANN)
          * Genetic Algorithms (GA)
          * Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
          * Parallel Processing
          * Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
          * Image Processing
          * Multimedia Applications
          * Web Applications
          * Virtual Reality (VR)
          * Robotics
    /
Applications of some of these approaches in various disciplines of civil engineering will be presented.

Each Session will be followed by interactive sessions on the subject matter.

There will be demonstration of various IT based civil engineering applications, which may include demos of software by industry professionals
