PMRF Webinar Series 2 on “Simulation and Modeling for Civil Engineers – Agent Based Modeling”

PHCET | Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology > Civil Seminars & Workshops > PMRF Webinar Series 2 on “Simulation and Modeling for Civil Engineers – Agent Based Modeling”

Department of Civil Engineering, Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology in association with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Student’s chapter of ASTR and ISRS has organised a ‘Webinar series under Prime Minister’s Research Fellowship’ on ‘Simulation and Modeling for Civil Engineers – Agent based Modeling’. A webinar is scheduled monthly by the research scholar from IIT Bombay. The program is conducted online with the active participation of the student council of the Civil Department of PHCET. Registration is free and open to students and faculty of PHCET and other colleges in and outside Mumbai. E-Certificates are provided to all the participants.

Objectives
The webinar series was organised to fulfil the following objectives:

  • To enhance the knowledge of students and faculty in the field of simulation and modelling and its significance in civil engineering.
  • To facilitate the interaction of students with scholars outside the campus.
  • To open new areas of research in the civil engineering field to undergraduate students.
  • To help the students to explore new project topics in their career.
  • To judiciously utilise the online platform and free time of students for gaining knowledge.

Faculty Coordinator : Ms. Smitha J. S.
Introduction to Agent Based Modeling – I

The first webinar in the series was organised on 2nd September 2021 from 4.00 pm onwards. Agent-based modeling is a powerful simulation modeling technique that has seen a number of applications in the last few years, including applications to real-world business problems. An agent-based model (ABM) is a computational model for simulating the actions and interactions of autonomous agents (both individual or collective entities such as organizations or groups) in order to understand the behaviour of a system.

The function was a grand success with the active participation of students and faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering.

Number of Participants: 71
