International Forensic Civil Engineering Seminar 2024 

Forensic Engineering Centre (FEC), Institute for Smart Infrastructure & Innovative Construction (ISIIC) will organizing the International Forensic Civil Engineering Seminar 2024 (iForCES’24) on 15 and 16 October 2024 at Imperial Hotel Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia to offer opportunities for practicing engineers, consultants, contractors, facility management professionals, legal professionals, students, academicians and other interested parties to gain theoretical and practical understanding in the field of forensic civil engineering investigation.

About the Seminar

In this seminar, the compendiums of case studies will be presented by experienced speakers who are practicing engineers and academicians from different areas in forensic civil engineering investigation. These include failure criteria, assessment, reporting, monitoring, maintenance, repair techniques in civil engineering structures.

Why this Seminar is Important?

Why this Seminar is Important?

Engineers frequently deal with old & aging structures. These need competency in dealing issues with structural failure, rehabilitation and maintenance. Furthermore, due to rapid urbanization which consequently causes failure in construction, civil and structural engineers must remain vigilant on safety, quality, life cycle of the structure and sustainability.
