Application of Artificial Intelligence in Civil/Environmental Engineering

Webinaire / les 27, 28 et 29 octobre 2021 /
Code : 12-1008-ONL21



Veuillez noter :
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 3:00 pm Eastern (includes a 30 minute lunch)

After participating in the course, you will be able to:

  • have an understanding of major AI techniques,
  • have a basic understanding of evaluation methodologies
  • have a working knowledge of how to apply AI technologies to real-world datasets,
  • have gained experience designing and applying AI techniques in Civil/Environmental engineering problems

Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and machine learning approaches will revolutionize many aspects of future Civil/Environmental Engineering field. AI can be used as a promising tool to tackle different problems but related aspects of civil/environmental practical cases as great concern all over the world. The main focus of this course is to understand and discuss the recent developments in AI applications relating to practical engineering application.

This course introduces a variety of different topics in AI approaches and learning methods in modeling and prediction of complex environmental systems. The practical examples are illustrated and will show you how to apply this technique into practice.

Course Outline:

  • Data acquisition/Preprocessing
  • Classification
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) Modeling tools
  • Post processing

Who Should Attend:
Civil & Environmental Engineers • Project Engineers & Managers • Consultants • Designers • Operation & Maintenance personnel • Developers • Planners

  • Transferring raw information into usable data,
  • Splitting the data into training & testing sets.


  • Decision tree, (DT),
  • M5 prime (M5’),
  • K-nearest neighbour algorithm (KNN).

Post processing

  • Analysis of statistical indices,
  • Scatter plot,
  • Box plot,

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Modeling tools
