INDIAN GEOTECHNICAL SOCIETY (Hyderabad Chapter)
Coordinator: Mr. K.Vamsi Krishna
The Indian National Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering was established
in the year 1948, soon after the second International Conference on Soil Mechanics
and Foundation Engineering held at Rotterdam. The Society was affiliated to the
International Society in the same year and since then it has strived to fulfil and
promote the objectives of the International Society.
In February 2014, Malla Reddy Engineering College (Autonomous) got institutional
membership for life time in the discipline “Geotechnical Engineering” PG Course.
Through this Hyderabad chapter many of our students and Faculties are getting benefited
in the form of workshops and guest lectures.
IGS Institution membership was started in MREC on 07-09-2013. The
membership of the society will be governed by the constitution of the society and
rules framed by thereunder. Staff Co-ordinator: Dr. K.Vamsi Krishna.
The Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS) aims at promoting co-operation amongst engineers
and scientists for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in the fields
of Soil Mechanics, Foundation Engineering, Soil Dynamics, Engineering Geology, Rock
Mechanics, Snow and Ice Mechanics and allied fields and their practical applications.
It provides a common forum for academicians, research workers, designers, construction
engineers, equipment manufacturers and others interested in geotechnical activity.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES
