Great online certificate courses
Coursera and Udemy became popular for their online courses. Coursera is giving online degrees which are acceptable to all over the world. however, Coursera has very few online courses for engineers. There is almost no online certificate course for civil engineers. Udemy is offering short courses that can be completed quickly. Udemy courses sometimes lack the completeness of course which is needed for engineers.
History of online courses at ourPROFESSORs
Since 2018, “Geotech and Structures”, a specialized civil engineering consultancy firm, arranged a lot of workshops and professional training for practicing civil engineers. They offered short courses on various topics of civil engineering which are needed for professional civil engineers for their professional development. The venue was at BUET and the “Geotech and Structures” office at Kakrail. Civil Engineers who attended those training courses and workshops expressed their gratitude and interest for more courses on various topics that are related to design and construction in the field of civil engineering. A lot of professional civil engineers who expressed their interest but failed to attend due to the busy life of engineers. Generally, engineers are working 10-12 hours per day in Bangladesh. It is tough for them to attend a training course for one or two full days.
Traffic congestion of Dhaka city is becoming worse to worst which is another barrier to attend training courses. A lot of civil engineers who do job or practice in divisional towns, district towns, or Upazilla towns. It is almost impossible for them to attend training courses in Dhaka. An instructor, specialist, or resource person deliver a lecture for 8-10 hours per day for this type of professional training courses. Usually, university professors, who are specialized in certain subjects, are requested to offer workshops and training courses. They are very busy. It is difficult for them to manage one or two full days for the course.
Considering all these problems, “Geotech and Structures” developed and launched this online professional training platform for civil engineers residing all over the world. Initially, civil engineering will be focused on. Later other subjects shall be covered. Initially, Professor Dr. Jahangir Alam offered online courses on various topics of civil engineering. Later other professors and experienced engineers are showing interest to offer online courses on civil engineering and other disciplines and subjects.
