Mr. Satish Dhupelia, Past President ICACI, enthrals engineering students at Rajkot

Renowned Consulting Structural & Civil Engineer, Mr. Satish Dhupelia, recently met members of ACI India’s Student Chapter at the Marwadi Education Foundation’s Group of Institutions (MEFGI).

As key note speaker of the technical session, Mr. Dhupelia spoke about the ‘Durability of concrete structures’ with real life examples and images. Concrete construction, current practices, and the advantages and problems faced by the industry were other topics of Mr. Dhupelia’s presentation which students found very enlightening.

The meet, which is Mr. Dhupelia’s second in a short span of time, was organised and co-ordinated by Prof. Ankur Bhogayata and Prof. Shemal Dave of the Department of Civil Engineering at MEFGI.

As a leading figure of ACI India’s Student Chapter programme, Mr. Dhupelia frequently takes time out from his hectic professional life in Mumbai to meet and encourage students from other parts of India. Each meeting sheds light on the advantages of being a member of the ACI – India Student Chapter, besides enriching students with practical knowledge of the industry.

100 students are currently registered in this very active student chapter at Rajkot, which is regularly organising lectures, cube testing competitions and other activities for its members.
