GIS for Civil Engineers

Civil engineering is about developing and sustaining infrastructure. The profession covers many areas of interest and a broad range of expertise like water resources, geotechnical, structural, transportation engineering etc. As a result, civil engineers work with a voluminous amount of data from a variety of sources. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology provides the tools for creating, managing, analyzing, and visualizing the data associated with developing and managing infrastructure. Thus, GIS is playing an increasingly important role in civil engineering field by supporting all phases of the infrastructure life cycle and one should exploit this tool to gain its advantages. Also, people are unaware of the advantages of open source GIS tools which are freely available and can be developed by any user. Instead, they still depend on Proprietary GIS Softwares which are highly expensive with limited number of licenses for limited time period. Thus, this short term program is mainly aimed to spread the importance of GIS for civil engineers by teaching basic concepts of GIS and spread the awareness about available Open Source GIS softwares. To achieve this objective, the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Bombay is organizing this short term course for the first time. 

Objectives

  • The short term course is intended to introduce the following themes:
  • To spread the importance of GIS in Civil Engineering
  • To promote the use of open source GIS softwares
  • Teach the basic concepts and hands on experience on few applications so that at the end of course, participants reach such a level that they can further explore themselves according to their needs
