Civil Engineering Research Club (CERC) is a platform for the
full-time Ph.D., M.Phil. and M.Sc.Eng. students to give recognition for their work and it also motivates students to carry out their research in an efficient and
effective manner while building up a friendly environment among the students and staff. Providing a peer-learning environment to open up possibilities for
collaborative research is one of the intended outcomes.
Civil Engineering Research Club (CERC) in Collaboration with Civil Engineering Research Promotion Sub-Committee of the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Peradeniya Presents 13th Research Seminar of Full-Time Postgraduate Students.
The Department of Civil Engineering comprising three main divisions, viz., Material and Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical and Transportation Engineering offers a broad spectrum of courses in the Civil Engineering Specialization as well as in the General Programme and in the other Specializations in the Faculty of Engineering.
The department offers postgraduate programmes in five areas of specialization. These include taught programmes, viz., PGDip
(by coursework), MEng, MScEng and MSc as well as research leading to PGDip (by research), MPhil and PhD.
The academic staff of the department together with their undergraduate and postgraduate students are involved in a diverse range of research covering a broad spectrum of topics.
Such research is mostly designed to address requirements of the civil engineering practice and the industry.
