Description: The Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur invites nominations from Heads of the Departments of Civil Engineering or Principals of engineering colleges in India to send their current second year undergraduate Civil Engineering students to IIT Kanpur for a “technology” camp in the upcoming summer during June 8 – July 5, 2010.
The objective of the camp is to re-create the romance of Civil Engineering profession and motivate the participants to excel in this fascinating field of human endeavor.
This camp is an experience of a lifetime for us. We met eminent personalities of Civil engineering in India who have excelled in our fields and are today role models to emulate. We also be exposed to selected videos of Civil Engineering projects, besides taking up short projects ourselves.
Getting selected to this coveted four-week all-expenses-paid Camp is a matter of pride to the second year civil engineering students across the country. For students from the non-IIT system, this is also an opportunity to peep into the ongoing technology projects in the Department of Civil Engineering at this Institute. Only two students from each college, who have performed well in academics as well as extra-curricular activities, get nominated for the camp.
