International Civil Engineering Congress (ICEC) is a regular feature in the calendar of events for Institution of engineering Pakistan and its Organizing partner NED University of Engineering and Technology Karachi. It is being organized frequently for almost two decades now. Eight international congresses have been organized in the past. Every year, the ICEC is held under an innovativ e theme related to contemporary issues that relate Civil Engineering and Socioeconomics of the society.
The latest version of ICEC was held on December 23-24, 2016 at Karachi. The congress was organized in collaboration with Federation of Engineering Institutions of Islamic Countries (FEIIC), Federation of Engineering Institutions of South and Central Asia (FEISCA) and The Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC). Theme of this congress was “Ensuring technological advancement through innovation based knowledge corridor.” More than 40 international papers were presented at the 2016 congress including those from United States, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Srilanka, Bangladesh, Iran, and Nepal.
