Start of the 2024 Scientific Engineering Conference under the theme “Sustainability in Engineering Facilities at the Faculty of Civil Engineering

2024 Scientific Engineering Conference under the theme “Sustainability in Engineering Facilities was launched at the Al- Basel Auditorium in the presence of Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Prof. Bassam Ibrahim, Minister of Local Administration and Environment, Eng. Lamia Shakour, members of the diplomatic sector in Damascus, Governor of Damascus, Secretary of Damascus University branch of the Arab Socialist Baath Party, and Head of the Syrian Engineers Syndicate.  Participants included researchers and specialists from Arab and foreign countries and an exhibition of scientific research posters and another of Syrian engineering industries are held in the faculty’s foyer during the conference.

The conference discusses ten main topics, including modern technologies in structural engineering, sustainability assessment systems in the construction sector, intelligent transportation systems, sustainable health and environmental engineering systems, modern technologies in geotechnical engineering, 3D modeling of photogrammetry and laser scanning products, and sensor technology and its use in sustainable development. The topics also include integrated management of water resources, the role of measurement and monitoring systems in their sustainability, and the role of building materials and their additives in the sustainability of facilites

President of Damascus University, Prof. Muhammad Osama Al-Jabban, stressed the great role played by the students of the University in cooperation with the university’s branch of the National Union since the first day of the earthquake disaster that hit Syria in February of last year.
