International Conference ON
GEOMATICS IN CIVIL ENGINEERING
April 5-6, 2018
At the O.P.Jain Auditorium in the Civil Engineering Department of IIT Roorkee
The Civil Engineering Department of IIT Roorkee was established in 1847 as Roorkee College of Engineering, the first graduate engineering college in the whole of the British empire at that time. This year department is celebrating its 170 years of Civil Engineering education in India in conjunction with 60 years of post-graduate Geomatics Engineering education. As a part of this august celebration, Geomatics Engineering group of Civil Engineering Department, IIT Roorkee is organizing an international conference to highlight the role of Geomatics in Civil Engineering. Over the years, Civil Engineering has grown tremendously. It requires a variety of data and tools to solve the wide range of technical and societal problems. Geomatics Engineering, using geospatial information, engineering principles and relational data structures involving measurement sciences, is capable of providing exciting and new vistas of solutions for pure and applied problems. It involves a wide range of technology/ tools such as Total stations, GNSS, UAS, Laser Technology, Spectro-radiometry, Radar-geometry, GIS etc.
