Post Pandemic Civil Engineer's Thinking

Civil Engineering Post Pandemic
The Civil Engineering field was one of the most affected by the pandemic, as most of the work cannot be done from home such as surveying, fieldwork, plan layout, construction, and other physical work. Few things such as planning, drawing can be done by that too was limited. 
With this, many countries' economy saw a slowdown and the best way to boom their economy is by building new infrastructure projects and spending out more on projects such as highways, bridges, metro, state roads, buildings (commercial and residential).

Country such as India has taken steps in that direction too with projects such as:

1) Tunnels to connect the northern cities which are mostly disconnected due to snow in the Himalayan ranges...

2) National Highway expansion, Expressway connecting National capital to different cities, Highways to connect more cities, Coastal Road Project (Mumbai), and many more...

3) Port development and renovation which will help in increasing exports as connectivity increases...

4) Metro in cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, and other cities to increase the city connectivity...

5) Ongoing projects such as Bharatmala, Sagarmala and Highspeed Rail Corridors (some plans have already executed and some are in the planning stage).

This will open many opportunities for Civil Engineering Student (for Internship), Civil Engineers (Job), Civil Engineers in Research work where they can do many research and case study and find out a better and innovative way to do the work.


Civil Engineering Post Pandemic
1) Larsen and Toubro (L&T):
LnT Build India Scholarship is one of the best opportunities for the Final Year Students which gives them chance to do Mtech from prestigious colleges such as IIT and NIT. 

2) GATE:
GATE will help you get admission in colleges for MTech and also if you have scored well, Public Sector Company can also take you in as an engineer.

3) Engineering Service Exam (ESE):
This helps engineers to get into Indian Engineering Services (IES) and work on large-scale projects directly by the government.

Many projects have been discussed in the blog, do check and comment down which topic you want me to write next.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT
