What's new




The 4th edition of the International Conference on Civil Engineering Education (EUCEET 2018) will take place on 5 - 8 September 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. Language of the conference is English.

World economy is changing rapidly. On the one hand, issues like health and safety, quality, resilience, sustainability, social justice and environment are increasing their weight for decision makers compared with traditional pecuniary considerations.

On the other hand, the advent of cheap powerful computers, smart phones and robots is changing society drastically and also the economic interactions.

The general agreed on professional requirements for future generations are the ability to interact with computers and robots, and the ability to do what these are not able to do (the so called soft skills as ethics or creativity).

Civil Engineer practice is also impacted by this change.

In the frame of Bologna Treaty, most universities are striving to adapt their educational contents as well as their training methods.Is Civil Engineering Education able to keep pace?

In this conference, this question will be answered addressing the following topics:

1. New contents and capabilities: Resilience, sustainability, BIM (Building Information Modelling), soft skills, automation, artificial intelligence, smart cities, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

2. Methodology: Student centered teaching methods, online learning, flip learning, active learning, PBL (Project Based Learning)

3. The impact of educational policies: quality management, quality control and accreditation agencies, links between teaching, research and practice

Conference will include Technical visits to Sagrada Familia and Barça Stadium. For more information, please visit the official website.


MC 2020 Workhop in Denver


IMG 1425The 2018 PCI Convention & National Bridge Conference took place last week and several key fib members participated in the event, including fib President Hugo Corres Peiretti, fib Presidium member Larbi Sennour and fib Commission 10 member Agnieszka Bigaj-van Vliet.


One of the highlights was the fib Model Code 2020 Workshop, during which numerous people discussed specific aspects of the upcoming code. fib Secretary General David Fernández-Ordóñez presented the work of the fib and the way the USA participates in the mission at the Awards Ceremony.

Call for papers ICSA 2019



The fib supports the 4th International Conference on Structures and Architecture, which will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from 24 to 26 July 2019.

The aim of ICSA2019 is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering and is intended for an audience of researchers and practitioners worldwide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering. This is the world's leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields.

The conference will facilitate the meeting of international participants interested in the recent advances in the art, practice and theory of designing and building infrastructures in which the structural and architectonic values are consciously combined and the contribution of each other is mutually enhanced. It includes architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, construction industry persons, academics, researchers, students, product manufacturers, material suppliers, project managers and contract administrators, asset managers, government authorities of infrastructure development and others.

Keynote lecturers include fib President Prof Hugo Corres Peiretti.

Abstracts should be submitted by using the restricted area of the ICSA2019 webpage, in electronic form, before 15 March 2018. These documents are due on 15 November 2018. Acceptance will be notified before 15 February 2019. Proceedings will be sent for indexation by both Thomson Reuters (Conference Proceedings Citation Index – ISI Proceedings) and Elsevier (Scopus and EI).
