Overview
About IUSSTF
Transportation Engineering Division, IIT Kharagpur
The practice of road building has undergone significant
changes in India over the last one decade owing to the mega
investments made and due to the adoption of state-of-the-art
construction technology. Not withstanding the progress made
so far, many aspects of pavement engineering are still being fine
tuned. Answers are being sought to several questions that
have significant bearing on the successful performance of
pavements. The main objective of the workshop is to discuss
some of these critical issues and to seek/provide solutions to
them. It is hoped that the coming together of different stake
holders such as contractors, manufactures, consultants,
researchers and academicians will provide an opportunity for
multi-directional dissemination of knowledge in pavement
engineering. Considering that US pavement industry has
witnessed and adopted several technological innovations in
the recent past, an effort is being made in this endeavor to
bring Indian and American experiences together through
Indo-US Science and Technology Forum.
The Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF),
established under an agreement between the Governments
of India and the United States of America in March 2000, is an
autonomous, non- profit society that promotes and catalyzes
Indo-US bilateral collaborations in science, technology,
engineering and biomedical research through substantive
interaction among government, academia and industry. As a
grant making organization, the principle objective of IUSSTF is
to provide opportunities, to exchange ideas, information, skills
and technologies, and to collaborate on scientific and
technological endeavors of mutual interest that can translate
the power of science for the benefit of mankind at large.
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, an Institute of
national importance, established in 1951, is the first in the
chain of IITs in India. The department of civil engineering,
which also started its programmes in the same year, has been
serving the nation in multi-dimensional ways. Due to the
sustained efforts made over last few decades and through its
association with a number of Transportation infrastructure
projects, the Transportation Engineering division has been able
to make significant contributions in different areas having
practical relevance.
RCG School of Infrastructure Design & Management,
IIT Kharagpur
Ranbir and Chitra Gupta (RCG) School of Infrastructure
Design and Management has been setup in 2008 as a result of
the joint initiative of the IIT Kharagpur and Mr. Ranbir Singh
Gupta, an alumnus of this institute. Currently, the school offers
inter-disciplinary postgraduate programme in “Infrastructure
Design and Management” with an aim to train students to
cater to the needs of the infrastructure industry.
