About the Conference

In the current era of construction boom, the industry demands Civil Engineers specialized in structural engineering as well as construction management for expert handling of complex construction projects. Civil Engineering practitioners require strategic overview of construction management issues together with advanced structural engineering knowledge for professional excellence. With this vision, various conferences across the world provide premier platforms for students, academicians, researchers and industrial experts to share their knowledge and ideas in the field of structural engineering and construction management. There is also continuous encouragement towards disseminating research findings and sharing knowledge from multi-disciplinary perspectives.

SECON’18 is the second edition of the National Conference on Structural Engineering and Construction Management conducted by the Department of Civil Engineering of Federal Institute of Science And Technology (FISAT). The main objective of the conference is to create a platform for disseminating knowledge on emerging technologies in the fields of Structural Engineering and Construction Management. The conference is also designed to give exposure to young and emerging engineers and provides a platform for presenting their ideas and research findings to the community. The first conference SECON’17 was a success, attracting eminent speakers from academia and also a good number of research papers in the respective fields. SECON’18 intents to focus on Prefabricated Structures and Non-Destructive Testing in addition to its regular themes.

The Conference aims to thrust the work from industry and academia on the following topics:

(i) Prefabricated Structures

(ii) Non Destructive Testing

(iii) Analysis and Design of Steel & Concrete Structures

(iv) Numerical Modelling and simulation in Structural Engineering

(v) Construction Methods, Materials & Sustainability

(vi) Construction Safety and Management

(vii) Construction Planning, Scheduling and Control
