With a look over the growing technologies in Civil Engineering, Association for Promotion of Civil Engineering is an initiative taken by the students of civil engineering department of “COER” to provide a link to explore themselves beyond the curbs of books. As the students lack exposure to civil engineering applications, the association aims to inculcate the pragmaticand attitude in students. Association is trying to bridge gap between the knowledge and practical.
