CHENNAI: The Civil Engineering Association (CEA) of the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras will organise its annual fest on March 9.

The three-day event will help provide diverse perspectives to students in all areas of engineering.

In Simul Constructo, focus will be on the competence of the student in the field of construction management.

A test of knowledge

It will test the student's knowledge about disaster management techniques while constructing, say, a post-tsunami rehabilitation centre.

Events galore

The fest also includes a Roboconstruct event.

The rationale behind holding such an event is that automated systems could reduce costs by cutting down on construction time.

The prize money in this segment is Rs.15,000.

Business Plan, design and architecture contests have been organised for students.
