The Civil & Environmental Engineering Department, The NorthCap University, Gurugram is a lifetime organizational member of Indian Concrete Institute, Chennai.

Indian Concrete Institute is one of the leading professional bodies in India, catering to the professional needs of individuals and organizations involved in Concrete. Being a non-profit Organization, it is dedicated to the cause of Disseminating Knowledge on Concrete to Promote Concrete Technology and Construction and to address the Research Needs of Concrete.

The NorthCap University has now become a lifetime organizational member of Indian Concrete Institute, Chennai and has been attached with ICI Delhi Centre (DELC). The University would now get updated on the latest technology & practices in Concrete Industry. The members will have a unique opportunity to listen to and to interact with experts from within the country and abroad. This will let us collaborate with national and international agencies in creating better understanding of concrete construction technology. ICI promotes growth of concrete construction and its sub-specializations giving opportunity to participate in ICI conducted competitions like ICI FEST, which is a zonal meet of Students Chapters. Apart from these, there are various other benefits such as access to ICI Archives which is a collection of valuable Technical Papers, access to ICI reference library and most importantly, an opportunity to grow professionally.

Department Industry Interaction Cell

The DIIC is being proposed to facilitate an interaction between the department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, The NorthCap University and the Industry which is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries has become stiff. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies and increase their employability by exposing them to latest technologies and engineering methodologies.

These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic institute. However, to bridge a gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of the curriculum, Corporate Interaction is extremely important. The Department Industry Interaction Cell recognizes this need and addresses it through the regular associations and meeting with Corporate and provides industry exposure to the students and enables them to pick up skills besides what is being imparted in the classrooms.

Indian Road Safety Campaign (IRSC) Student’s Chapter

Indian Road Safety Campaign, a voluntary organization running under the umbrella of Transport Research and Injury Prevention Program, IIT Delhi, refers to improve the road safety rules and also make the stakeholders – who are the reason for road accident deaths, aware about safety rules.
