  • Fest Details

    Fest Name: Student Short Course on Earthquake Resistant Design of Buildings
    Organising College Name: International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad
    Fest Type: Workshop
    Fest Start Date: 16th March
    Fest End Date: 19th March
    Fest Info: Building construction is booming in India. Before more buildings are built in seismic zones of the country with current methods of design and construction practices, the minimum expected effort is to make the new buildings earthquake-resistant. Several earthquake-safety related issues need attention in the planning, design and construction of these buildings. All these stem from the expected earthquake behavior of buildings. Some of these items are still unresolved even in countries with advanced seismic design provisions, like USA and Japan. Researchers worldwide are continuously working towards development of techniques for improving earthquake safety of buildings. In India, the effort is still in the nascent stages. Even though design codes exist in the country, they are not practiced as intended. Currently, achieving the code compliance is a major challenge for municipal bodies. Code compliance will get an impetus when building professionals internalize the need for earthquake safety. And, building professionals will be able to take ownership only through education.

    To contribute for this, EERC is organizing a short course on ‘Earthquake Resistant Design of Buildings’ from 16th-19th March, 2016 at IIIT Hyd, Gachibowli, Hyderabad. The short course is aimed at contributing to the society from academics point of view. In respect to this, EERC welcome the students pursuing Bachelor degree in civil engineering from various colleges who are thriving to achieve their higher goals in the field of Civil Engineering.

    Please utilize this opportunity to set yourself in the present day engineering and construction industry.

    [ig_tab label="How to Reach"]
    Reaching Hyderabad by a train and getting down at the Hyderabad (Nampally) station would be the easiest way to reach us. The institute is 16km from Nampally railway station. From the railway station one can take an auto or APSRTC bus (Nos: 216 & 217) to reach IIIT-H. The auto would cost around Rs.110/- and bus fare would be around Rs.12/-.
