IGS CHAPTER OF MREC

INDIAN GEOTECHNICAL SOCIETY (Hyderabad Chapter)

Registration Number:

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.
