International Conference on Sustainable Civil Engineering
June 20-21, 2016 Cape Town, South Africa
 

Theme: Innovations in Sustainable Civil Engineering

OMICS International feels proud to announce “International Conference on Sustainable Civil Engineering” (Civil Engineering 2016) which is going to be held during  June 20-22, 2016 Cape Town, South Africa, with the theme of “Innovations in Sustainable Civil Engineering".

Civil Engineering 2016 is an International Conference focusing on sustainability concept implemented in design, construction and maintenance in any civil engineering structure. The conference welcomes all the leading Researchers, Architects, Engineers and Scientists all around the world to Cape Town, South Africa. Share your excitement in promoting new Ideas, Developments and Innovations in Civil Engineering 2016. 

OMICS International Organizes 300+ Conferences Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 400+ Open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

 

Importance & Scope:

Civil engineers design, construct, supervise, operate, and maintain large construction projects and systems, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. Many civil engineers work in design, construction, research, and education.

Construction spending is projected to exceed 1.07 trillion U.S. dollars in 2016. An updated market analysis from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics employment in Civil Engineering is projected to see the job growth of about 25% through 2018 faster than the average for all occupations. The field is growing. By checking out the department of labor and industries, the growth rate for Civil Engineering is 20% over the next 5 years.  Moreover, a growing population means that new water systems will be required while the aging, existing water systems must be maintained to reduce or eliminate leaks of drinkable water. In addition, more waste treatment plants will be needed to help clean the nation’s waterways. Civil engineers play a key part in all of this work.

Why South Africa?                

South Africa’s domestic economy continues to perform below potential, emerging market growth outlook deteriorates, while growth in advanced economies is slowly strengthening Global growth is estimated to have increased by 3 percent in 2013, strengthening to 3,7 percent in 2014 and 3,9 percent in 2015. Economic activities has strengthened in advanced economies, while the outlook for emerging markets, although still positive, has weakened in recent months as emerging economies are adjusting due to higher levels of currency volatility capital inflows, current account and fiscal deficits, debt levels and varying levels of business and consumer confidence. Currency depreciation is likely to result in higher levels of inflation for most of the emerging economies, including South Africa. Economic growth in emerging markets is nonetheless expected to increase from an estimated 4,7 percent in 2013, to 5,1 percent in 2014. Because of an expected slowdown in China’s economy, emerging markets are expected to slow to 4,7 percent in 2015. Developing economies account for a growing share of global trade and investment, from 18 percent twenty years ago to 38 percent, which means these economies will have a more profound global impact.

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the Imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island in Table Bay. The notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela is now a living museum
