Education

As a part of Module 1 of Civil Engineering, I teach Construction Materials course to undergraduate students. I, also, teach the graduate course BIM and 5D Planning to MSc students of Construction Management and Engineering. Finally, I am also involved in the Module 10 of Civil Engineering, i.e., smart ways to make smart cities smarter.
