Download Brochure | Download Registration Form


In the recently changed national scenario, India is moving on a fast track mode in the nation building. Infrastructure development is one of the primary requirements to achieve this objective, which will require inputs of Civil Engineers to a very large extent. The aim of the conference “Role of Civil Engineering in Nation Building” (RCNB - 2016) is to bring together relevant human resource to share their ideas to achieve this objective of nation building. The proposed conference will focus on recent trends on design, construction and management in Civil Engineering and will help in understanding these issues. RCNB – 2016 shall be an ideal platform for Researchers, Academicians, Engineers and Industry Professionals from all over the country to share views and present their findings and have intellectual deliberations on all aspects of Civil Engineering encompassing the recent innovations, trends, concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted, which will help in the great task of our nation building.
