Department Industry Consultative Board [DICB] Meeting

In view of recognizing industry needs and strengthening the links with the industry, the Department of Civil Engineering annually organizes a consultative meeting with industry representatives, and this year’s Department Industry Consultative Board Meeting was held on 06th October 2016 at the Departmental Board Room. With the participation of over 20 leading governmental organizations and private companies engaged in the civil engineering and construction industry, this gathering provided an excellent forum to discuss the issues pertaining to the curriculum and syllabi, in-plant training, optional and elective modules and postgraduate and short courses to meet specific industry needs, etc., via effective dialogue and exchange of views. The feedback from the industry has been found to be very effective in refining and merging the mission and vision of the Department with the growing industry requirements and developing strong Department-Industry collaborations thereby contributing to the further enhancement of graduate attributes of the highly capable young professional engineering graduates.
