Geo-informatics and Building Technology Research Centre (GBTRC)

The Geoinformatics and Building Technology Research Centre (GBTRC) within the School of Civil Engineering is a Research Centre under the aegis of CURIN. The center focuses on state of the art engineering research and the key mission of the GBTRC is to conduct applied research in civil and environmental engineering. The major goal is to use the latest tools and techniques to come up with innovative research designs that can make life easier. In this perspective, research in advance engineering and technology, such as the use of Geographical Information System (GIS) and advanced remote sensing know-how, water resources research, building technology and new building material research in particular is of principal importance. The center provides an opportunity to pursue exploratory projects in diverse areas of engineering and brings together a team of dedicated researchers who push the limits to achieve the goals.

Major Research Thrust Areas:

  • Remote sensing and GIS applications in Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Annual and seasonal change detection in crop patterns using satellite imagery
  • Water Resources Engineering
  • Geographical Information System (GIS)
  • Remote Sensing
  • Advance Surveying and Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Engineering Geomorphology and Geosciences
