Contemporary Studies of Civil Engineering with Futuristic Technology

Civil engineering is on the way of major transition in upcoming futures due to advancement in technology.  Gone are the days, when this core engineering was focused on smart materials and energy-efficient buildings. But, in recent times, civil engineers are placing more emphasis on computer vision, BIM, virtual reality, sustainability, IoT, and 3D printing technologies etc. Here is a compilation of some latest trends in civil engineering.Civil engineering is on the way of major transition in upcoming futures due to advancement in technology.  Gone are the days, when this core engineering was focused on smart materials and energy-efficient buildings. But, in recent times, civil engineers are placing more emphasis on computer vision, BIM, virtual reality, sustainability, IoT, and 3D printing technologies etc. Here is a compilation of some latest trends in civil engineering.

1. Internet of Things (IoT): It will be capable of recording data such as variations in concrete humidity, vibrations, chloride content, and even abnormal deformations. It is one of the latest upcoming technologies that will give rise to smart cities and improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.

2. 3D Printing:  Demand for 3D printing in construction and civil engineering industry in a big way. 3D printing can turn engineering designs like bridge and home into scale models or even real components required for building construction. Without any doubt, this is one of the most exciting upcoming trends in civil engineering.

3. Robotics: we can expect to see robots taking over the mundane tasks in construction and civil engineering in the future, Last year, civil engineering industry tasted success with much iteration of bricklaying robots that illustrated efficiency by building walls six times faster than human workers!

4. Drones: Drones effortlessly access hazardous sections of the construction and collect data from large areas in a matter of minutes. This technology has allowed surveyors to get the job done without risking life and limb.

5. BIM: Building Information modeling, provide engineers a chance to visualize completed designs at the onset, the design process is poised to be cost-efficient and more streamlined in the future.

Department of Civil Engineering, IILM CET Greater Noida is pre-ready for such kind of challenges in changing scenario and facilitating such technology for futuristic engineering.

With best Wishes!
