Students of the 3rd year at the School of Civil Engineering (SoCE) at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU) made a presentation at the International Conference in Advancement in Construction Materials (ICACM 2023). Abhivek Singh and Harshit Vatsa, under the guidance of Mr. Srijan, an Assistant Professor at SoCE, presented a review paper titled “Use of Geotextile as an Innovative Material in Geotechnical Engineering: A Review.” The ICACM 2023, a part of the Indo-African Conference Series, was jointly organized by the Department of Civil Engineering at Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology, The Copperbelt University in Kitwe, Zambia, Mattu University in Metu, Ethiopia, the Indian Concrete Institute, and the American Society of Civil Engineers (Indian Section Southern Region). This collaboration facilitated an enriching environment for researchers, scholars, and practitioners to share knowledge and insights in the field of construction materials. The exceptional work presented by the students of SMVDU has earned them recognition, as their paper will publish in the Scopus Indexed AIP Conference Proceedings. This achievement reflects their dedication and the quality of their research, and it serves as a testament to the rigorous academic standards and opportunities provided by the School of Civil Engineering at SMVDU. The School of Civil Engineering at SMVDU continues to nurture and encourage its students to excel in their chosen fields, fostering an atmosphere of innovation and academic growth. The successful participation of Abhivek Singh and Harshit Vatsa at the ICACM 2023 is a remarkable milestone in their academic journey, setting an example for future students and highlighting the university’s commitment to fostering research and scholarly endeavours.
