SEC BACKGROUND

Structural Engineering Convention - SEC 2020 will be held for its 12th times since its beginning in the year 1997 with the pioneering efforts made by CSIR-Structural Engineering Research Centre (CSIR-SERC), Chennai and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras. It is a Biennial event which attracts structural engineers working in the academia, research laboratories and industries from both India and abroad. The convention, as much as it did in its history, will contribute to scientific developments in the field of structural engineering in a global sense. Over the years, SEC has evolved to be truly international with successive efforts from other premier institutes and organizations taken towards the development of this convention. We, at MNIT Jaipur, whole-heartedly invite you to participate in and contribute to SEC 2020.
