Need of Digitization
The world is changing fast, people and businesses are getting digital and more technology driven. “The formerly so called “brick and mortar” industry is entering the digital age. The digital push is accelerating and even if construction industry players are still confused and hesitant about the change and new technologies, the time has come for them to develop a real digital strategy” is the reality as quoted in report by Oliver Wyman. Construction Industry is fast adopting latest Digital technologies - Augmented Reality, Drones, 3D Printing, Building Information Modeling (BIM), 5D BIM, Artificial Intelligence, Block-chain, Project Software, Advanced Building Materials etc. For professional excellence, knowledge of these digital technologies are absolute essential for the engineers. As per survey by WEF, there is acute shortage of digital technology skilled people but demand is huge. To address this critical issue, the Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC), has launched a certified Online course for Construction firms, Engineers, Engineering organizations, working professionals, consultants and engineering students.
